Wow how much fun you can have after the sun is gone playing 10 pin bowlIng... Bianca is the manager and a great fun girl... The bowling balls only have 2 holes and are light, but the alley is short with fun games to play.... Oh and the best part is that it is LICENSED... Great fun ..

Wasn't sure what to expect at the bowling alley, however we did have a lot of good fun. There are lots of mini games to play instead of one long game which makes bowling less boring. Although it can be quite costly for the hour at $50 for 1 hour and $30 for extra half hours

visited the bowling alley before dinner one night. We had a great time. Different to the normal ten pin bowling as there are many different games to play. Hired the lane for one hour and it was good value. Can use your own shoes which is a bonus. We even had some popcorn bought over to us - on the... More

We booked two lanes for our 9 teenagers. They had a great hour after they worked out the smaller balls and lanes. You can wear you own shoes. Lots of snacks and drinks if you want to eat while you play. A pleasant way to spend an hour having a laugh!

We loved the bowling. The different technology and format was a change from AMF bowling you get on the Australian mainland - and a lot more fun. The different kinds of games meant anyone could win and indeed across our group of 9 everyone won at least once. Snakes and ladders and arithmetic were favourites. Had us all laughing when... More

We spent some time with friends and had a great time bowling over some drinks after dinner one night . Its a great sport if you are on holidays with kids as there is an arcade beside the bowling also.

We went to the Hamilton island bowling alley expecting your normal run of the mill bowling alley but this was a bowling alley with a twist. there was great games to play such as horse racing and snakes and ladders where getting a strike didn't always help you. we had a great time and my 4 year old son got...

A quick inspection of this venue looked interesting, so we decided to go back for a session and have some reprieve from the heat as it was air conditioned. Cost was $45 for one hour per lane. Normal bowling shoes are not required and there is complimentary shoe 'hire'. Just remember to bring some socks. There are only 9 pins... More

A fun change of pace for our day trip to Hamilton Island. It wasn't cheap (but nothing is there) but it was worth every cent.

Good family fun for night time. A couple of warnings - the return of the balls fly back fast and are a pinch point. My daughter bruised her fingers and another mother adjacent did at the same time. Make sure they book your reservation correctly. We booked a second time and caused a stir when another family claimed our lane... More
