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...More

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.

We came here while on vacation when the temperature was too hot outside to be at the beach. Very clean, a little pricey...but would definitely come here again!

Not much to do at night other than putt-putt, so we went bowling. The place was clean and friendly staff. We really had a great time and would have stayed longer had it not been a little pricey.
