“A Splendid Good Time In Every Fashion”

Lets start with the staff.... Outstanding ! The personable approach the servers have while your bowling is more than you'd expect while fine dining. The Decor, the lanes, the menu, the beer, It all adds up to great fun, for you and friends OR for your family. The modern equiptment and constant videos make the whole experience very worth while. Pricing is well in line for having a fun evening compared to playing pool or even the movie theatres in town. My friends and I will go again and again..... So " Thanks " to all the staff and management... CYU Soon !

“Ultra modern bowling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Our kids really like going to Bingemans so when my wife and I heard that they opened a bowling alley with a Boston Pizza inside it, we decided to go check it out. It’s a very new building and the bowling alleys are pristine and modern. They’re not the dingy bowling alleys that I grew up with as a kid. The lighting, big screens and comfortable seating areas are a really nice touch. The kids really enjoyed the bowling and the pizza that we wound up having for dinner afterwards. Fyi - try the perogy pizza - it’s awesome.

“Not Great Bowling”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Hey,

I bowl regularly at another alley in Kitchener (Frederick) and it's not comparable between the two.

The lanes at KingPin are so dry and don't seem to be maintained with the proper oil levels, when you throw a hook (curve) ball, it curves too much and you can easily end up missing all the pins.

It seems like there is no oil the last half way down the lane. I hope they change this soon.

The facility looks fabulous, the seats and area smell like a furniture store because everything is so new.

If they fix the lanes (main attraction), I might actually go there on their special nights (Mondays)

Bingemans, Manager at KingPin Bowlounge, responded to this review, August 16, 2013
Thanks for your comments Darin,
As we had just opened for 2 weeks at the time of you visit, our mechanics have still be testing with items and timing, as the lanes were being conditioned in the late afternoons. At present they are done daily first thing in the morning prior to opening, and in preparation for the fall leagues, they will be adjusted accordingly. Rest assured, we have installed top of the line equipment with Brunswick’s assistance, including the computerized lane conditioner. We have been receiving rave reviews, so we certainly hope to see you back soon, and please seek out one of our managers to say Hi. Thank you.
