AMF Southshore Lanes
Ranked #6 of 6 Fun & Games in Alameda
Attraction details
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I have taken my children here at least 15 times this summer for the free bowling program and the AMF Southshore Lanes has always been clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restrooms need repair but they are functional for the few times we need them. We usually go during the day and have been twice in the early evening (6pm-8pm), so I have no idea what it's like later at night or on a weekend. During the weekdays, there aren't many people there but there are lots of league bowlers in the evening. One time we tried to bowl around 8pm and were told there was an hour wait so we left only because we had the kids with us and didn't want to wait. If you like to bowl, I don't know why anyone would drive outside Alameda (if you live there) to bowl anywhere else.

On league night, the crowd can be a bit rough. A couple years ago there was a shooting outside the east door. Nightly there are drunks in the parking lot blasting music and yelling. As for the bowling ally part, it's like any other.

We like to bowl. Loved the buckets of ice cold beer.
