“Meets expectations”

Hollywood Bowl Basildon
Ranked #4 of 14 Fun & Games in Basildon
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you have ever been to a hollywood bowl you will know what to expect.

Average bar with drinks priced inline with other restuarants and bars in the area.
Not tried the food but would suggest using one of the many food establishments near by.

Pool tables are in okay condition last time I was there.
Plenty of arcade machines and a fruit machine area by the bar.

Bowling lanes get busy fast on Friday evenings and weelends and all week during school holidays.
Highly recommend booking a lane online.

Bowling balls are mostly in average/acceptable condition as per any lane which has been open a few years.
The lanes themselves are well maintained.
Staff are good but can be hard to get hold of during busy periods.

plenty of free parking

For bowling fun, it is good. For kiddie parties too.

Area for game machines, but we were not very happy with options for food.

It can be very busy and manic.
Book if you can.
It's a nice social place and ordering drinks etc., is not a problem
Parking can be a pain but not impossible,
There are lots of outside restaurants to eat at including Moza and Aroma.

Visited on Mother's Day afternoon for our grandson's 10th Birthday treat. As it was Mother's Day we got 25% off-which was good as it'd is not cheap for 8 people to play 2 games. All enjoyed it but it did't last as long as we thought. Staff were very polite and we had a great time. Do agree though that anyone can walk in and out around the lanes so we kept a close eye on our belongings. Overall a very enjoyable afternoon.
