Technical aspects were user friendly and easy. Lanes never stalled even once! The whole experience was fun and smooth, even with three kiddos in tow... Will absolutely be... More

This place might have been good at one time but the last few times have been poor. I will only review today. So its fathers day and 8 of us get here to a full house. Yet there is only one guy working behind the desk and he has to keep walking away to set up bumpers and get the... More

Every December, we bring our 6th grade class to Spare Time Bowling for their annual holiday party. The staff is always welcoming, friendly and helpful. The snackbar provides great pizza, as well as a variety of fountain drinks and snacks. For one price, bowling and pizza, this is a great place to bring your students.

Spare Time has locations in CT and MA. The one in Northampton is right off the highway and often has live music on Saturdays, plus a fun Blues Jam on Sundays. The rest of the time it's all about bowling. They also have food, but it is mostly pizza, nachos and pretzels.

This has got to be the nicest bowling alley ever. Cool lights, clean, and finally no SMOKING in bowling alleys! Live music on the weekends brings out a dancing older crowd for fun. Even the bar food is pretty good though limited. A nice night out for a change.

Bowling can be expensive but the after 9pm nights are great. Good deals and the disco bowls on Friday and Saturday nights are fun.

I'm not an avid bowler, but it's the only lane around and has clean lanes and tons of them. With it's massive bowling center it can still get crowded so make srue you call ahead and confirm there are no parties or leagues going on the time you are planning on going. Spare time is also a great place to... More

This is a fun activity made even more fun by the atmosphere, friendly staff and food. They even have great jazz in the weekend evenings in their bar. This is a very family friendly experience including children of all ages.

On Sundays the bowling alley has blues bands from 4 pm until 8 pm. I really did not go there to eat or to bowl. I went specifically for the music. It was great!

We wanted to get a bite to eat before bowling. We sat ourselves at a booth, no one else was there in the restaurant, but no one ever came over to take our order! Very bizarre. So we went into the bowling area and bought 1 game. The price for two adults and two kids under 5 was almost $40... More
