The worst
Oct 2021 • Family
We took our two children bowling on Saturday 29th October for their first time as we were on holiday in Bridlington. Paid for a hour slot, the Lane kept breaking down, pins kept falling over. Complained a couple of time they moved us to a different lane. The same kept happening on this other Lane, kept breaking down by the time the hour was up we hadn’t even completed a game most of our time was waiting around to get sorted. We asked the manager (who wouldn’t give us her name) blond hair woman for half our money back her response was no she can’t refund us.
We said if it all went off you would have to refund us so you can do it, you just don’t want to refund us. This manager mimicked me whilst I had my 18months in my arms then swar at me and walked off. The place was disgustingly dirty and my 18months old put his hands in some sort of sticky chewing gum that was left of the table and put it in his mouth and hair. We will never return here again!

Terrible service and staff attitude is atrocious rip off worst game of bowling ever
Oct 2021 • Family
Terrible service and terrible attitude from Staff, we visited while on holiday for a game of bowling, guy said better paying for 1 hour of bowling for £20 so we accepted well no wonder they wanted us to pay for an hour as we were put on lane 8 and it broke down constantly pins stuck, balls stuck now a family of 4 should easily get 2 games of bowling in that hour we were just over half way through the 2nd game and it cut off, so I complained as thought they would have let us finish the second game with all the problems and every time there was a problem with the lane they just made us wait and fix it, never even offered to move us so asked for manager who said they would move us to a different lane and let us finish the game, well that lane broke down as well so we had had enough I asked for manager and for half my money back so he then went to the boss apparently and made us wait 10 mins and came back and said no, we would have been cheaper paying for 1 game in the end as that’s all we got, the red haired lady who refused to give me her name attitude was terrible and definitely not acceptable and seriously needs to learn customer service and muttering under your breath just shows your maturity, left a complaint for boss to phone me but off course they are not interested, also cleanliness of the place is disgusting especially the toilets and the place definitely needs a good scrub down so avoid and I would never be back ever. Very disgruntled customer.

Fairly clean and orderly arcade
Aug 2021
Not one of the best arcades but one of the better ones. The cinema inside is useful. Good range of games and reasonable ticket prizes.

Had such a fun time playing the amusements. Special mention to Dave who was very patient and a great sense of humour when the prizes got stuck. We had a fabulous time.

Good Value Bowling
Jun 2021 • Friends
Good value for money way to spend an hour or two bowling. Maybe not as polished as the Hollywood Bowl type places but it’s probably less the half the price.

Amusements isn’t bad either, not ideal if you’re not bothered about winning tickets but most amusements are moving in that direction these days.

Jun 2021 • Friends
Been coming to forum for about 15yrs how it has changed,staff with masks round their necks didn't see 1 member of staff wearing their face mask,machines broken buttons and lights don't work on nearly all 10p machines and if you ask a staff member to fix it they never do, just say we havnt got the parts ,the toilets are disgusting don't look like they ever get cleaned the same for the machines I take my own anti bac wipes,cafe closed down inside arcade,The forum needs a lot of tlc to bring it back to how it used to be.

Stay clear!!
Oct 2020 • Family
Appalling behaviour by the lady at the bowling counter! She was cheeky madam and had the audacity to throw the lollipops at one of the kids behind her desk. Absolutely shocking behaviour by an Adult!! To children aged 11 years and under. You should be ashamed. The amount of money spent and this is the customer service. Stay clear and spent your hard earned cash elsewhere!

Great Cafe
Sep 2020
I had heard the cafe part of the Forum was under new management, so we thought we would give it a go.
It certainly had changed.
Goodly portions of food, freshly prepared and at a great price.
Highly recommended for families.
Cheap teas and coffees.
Love the all day breakfast deals.

DISGUSTING, AND DANGEROUS, STAFF DO NOT CARE ANOUT ANYTHING BUT MONEY
Aug 2020 • Family
I took my toddler on a ride that is for toddlers, clipped him in as i should’ve and everything, and when he got to the top he had fallen out of it, he is 2! Absolutely disgusting, we went to a staff member and told her and she looked at me funny and walked away! DID NOT EVEN GO CHECK THE RIDE OR ANYTHING! We were in there walking around a while after and it still wasn’t turned off, just completely ignored the fact that my 2 year son had fallen out of the ride even when strapped in, he could have been extremely hurt! I was taking pictures at the time of him and even have proof of him falling!
