Expensive
Dec 2019
While we enjoyed our visit both bowling and the arcade it was entirely too expensive for a bowling alley. It seems to me that maybe they know that there is not a lot of other entertainment option in the area during the winter and overcharge because they can. We will not likely go there again.

Fun Rainy Day Activity

We had a blast bowling there. Use a coupon to save a little, not much, but it helps. You can customize your screen with a picture. No food or drinks in bowling area. Bumpers and bridge are available for the kids.

Standard bowling alley with a few extras
Aug 2018 • Family
We haven’t been to this bowling alley in years but it has rained for days down here so why not, right? We had a great experience. Fun scoring videos (you can take your picture and they show cartoons of all of you after your turn bowling). Everything is electronic so we had no problems with ball return or pin set ups. The alleys are somewhat curvy but we don’t play that well so hard to tell the impact! They only allow bumpers for 11 and younger—but can switch them off when the older bowlers play. Shoes were okay, they did the job.

Food is decent, standard bowling alley fare. They have Pepsi products (not my fav!) and will give you a pitcher of water if you want.

They have a nice selection of video games and we found the staff to be really nice.

This place is under new management as of five years ago so perhaps that explains some of the previous negative reviews. I really don’t understand them. This is a bowling alley, after all. I enjoyed it and we will be back.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! The staff were extremely rude! Very very expensive and not worth it at all. The shoes that they make you pay $4 a pair for were dangerous as well as the greased up floor. I fell hard when I went up to bowl. No one could bowl appropriately due to the fear of falling. I will never go back!!

We were several generations out for an evening of family fun. It was raining so we decided to go bowling. I was very impressed with this facility. It was clean, well maintained and had up to date screens.

Rainy Day Fun
Aug 2017 • Family
When we arrived in the OBX it was raining, so we decided to go bowling. The bowling alley had just opened and the staff were helpful and kind. They explained the hourly lane rate, $35. The bowling balls were wonderfully organized and all down in the alley way which was super convenient. The alley was clean and well kept. The interactive scoring technology was really cool; selfies, custom backgrounds...

Expensive, poorly maintained, and they insult you when you mention it
Aug 2017 • Couples
I guess they rely upon socking it to the tourists, which is usually not true of most Outer Banks places, but this is a place I would never go back to. First off its expensive. Secondly, the ball return was defective so it took forever to play a game. Seeing they charge by the hour this translates to expensive games (It cost us - 2 couples - $75 to play two games). When we pointed this out to the person at the desk they insulted my wife and told her the malfunctioning ball return was our fault. The only fault of ours was going here in the first place. There are tons of better ways to spend $75 at the OBX then at this dump.

Fun indoor activity to do with children when it's rainy and cooler. Also offers a small arcade for games and prizes

Good for a rainy day
Dec 2016 • Family
If you want something to do on a rainy day... who doesn't love bowling? It's a good change of pace if you need to get out of the house but don't feel like shopping or the movies.
The facility isn't the cleanest, it's a little out dated, and the prices are high. With that being said, as a local, we know to go when they are offering special rates or packages & the kids always enjoy it. We have been many times and will continue to go, but would go more often if the prices where more affordable or they offered a loyalty program.
