We booked a lane for Christmas Eve and the Bowl was quite a bit busier than I thought it would be which was good. The booking in process was fast and you get to keep your own shoes - gone are the days when you have to hand in your own to receive one of theirs. The bowling shoes are in really good condition (they should be the place is new). We had a really good time, the illumination, music and videos are fun. All the staff were really attentive and helpful.
