We came for a company bowling party for four o'clock on a Saturday. The place was packed with kids for birthday parties as I had expected for a Saturday. We were given two lanes at the end of the building which was a bit quieter for our company party. I was happy that we were able to obtain alcoholic drinks and bring them to our lane with popcorn. It was fun to bowl, but if you are looking for a quieter time, with less kids best to call ahead first.

The mini gold was disappointing, as it was outside and every hole/green was crooked, causing the balls to roll to the bottom of the green after every shot. The bowling was fine, other than being a bit out dated, but we had booked 2 hours and after 1.5 they stopped & closed our lane.

We went today 6 of us for I had a groupon. I had called Saturday to book a reservation for the neon bowling. We were there at 3 And had to pay for one extra person 17.50 which we expected for my groupon was for 5. The mini golf was included however we decided not to do it. The neon bowling is ok. We got to bowl for 1.5 hours. Clean washrooms. Beers were average price. Located off St. Albert trail.

We had a birthday party booked for Saturday December 21, 2019. We had 7 adults and 3 children under 10. Richard was very friendly and helpful with choosing bowling shoes for all. The bowling alley was very clean. We had a great time and will plan another event in the spring with the whole family. Thank you St. Albert Bowling, we all had a great time.

A little older and run down.
Food is over priced.
Neon bowling is so much fun.

We had a birthday party there for our 9 year old. They had completely messed up on the booking but we thought oh well. Only thing was it was neon bowling. As we were giving out the cake to the kids the third piece they started putting it on there faces so we stopped the cake. As we did a lady came over and said you better clean this up. We said of course and asked who she was. She replied and said I'm the manager. After she left we were cleaning off the tables and 3 ladies came over as if they lost something so we asked if we could help them. They said they were inspecting. I got annoyed as they were working there so I asked them to leave. Then a kid came over and said a lady grabbed a spoon from her hand. I then asked to speak with a supervisor. They off duty manager came to talk to me but another lady was with her and I asked if I could please speak to her alone. They both got very mad. I then found out it was another off duty supervisor. To make a long story short they were not working at the time but made it a point to be very rude to us not to mention grab a spoon from a kids hand. I told her I would tell anyone that would listen how ride they were there an unprofessional. She then said it works both ways and I'm banned. I thanked her and had to walk away as she was still yielding. We cleaned up took pictures so they couldn't say it was a mess and left. We have 3 kids and have done over 30 birthdays at different places but this by far was the worst place I have ever see for unprofessionalism and I don't mean just for parties but over all. Please save your money and go anywhere else. People don't deserve to be treated the way we were. Thank you. Please let as many people as you can know. Pictures attached are of the mess we made I guess. Lol

We booked a birthday party for my ten year old daughter here. two lanes for an hour and a table for pizza and pop for an hour. Paid $166 for this package. Balls kept getting jammed in the machines. Staff was rude and kept blaming us for their equipment malfunctions. Were told we would get extra time for the inconvenience, however we barely got finished our one game before they shut it down. When questioned about our extra time were told that isn't possible that the lanes are switching over and maybe they could find us a new lane. Brought the pizza out to the table while we were bowling but did not inform us of this. Cold pizza and crappy service. Was told by many it was a great place, sorry but don't believe these people. Emailed establishment and was offered a free game to compensate for the experience. I cannot get back my daughter's birthday memories unfortunately. Will know better next time to not go to this establishment. Staff are rude and don't seem to care about customer service. As well they make you pay before you bowl, obviously for this reason. The service you receive you would not want to pay for afterwards.

Have been going to this place for along time . Until now it was great. Under new ownership & it has become a very kid unfriendly place. Don’t bring any extra little ones who might want to run around. And don’t dare tell the woman(?) owner how you feel . You’ll be banned from the place as I just was. Have been reading previous reviews & it seems she likes banning people from the place. I wouldn’t go back there & I advise you you not to either. The only good thing about this place is the manager, Richard. He knows how to treat people. The owner should take lessons from him.

We were there for the minigolf. Because many of the motorized obstacles were broken we got a very good rate for playing. The minigolf was as good as any worn out course can be. There was a lot of rotten wood. However it was outdoors and fun enough.
When I checked the bowling prices, I was surprised to see they charge by the hour not the game. This would be okay, except if you went there alone you would pay $17 an hour. Maybe you could bowl fast and be okay. But if you go with 5 other people, each person would pay $12 so they would be getting $72 an hour for the lane. How much bowling can you get in for your $12 when you need to let 5 others play as well? It was not very busy when we were there on a weekend, so I wonder if the pricing is killing their business?
