“Fun small place to bowl, candle pin style.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

While this place is small. it can be a lot of fun, especially when they are doing the Cosmic Bowling.But be warned, the music can be loud! The staff is friendly, and they keep everything nice and clean. This is not a fancy bowling alley, but a fun family place.

“Great fun for the kids”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

My kids love it here. Great for family bowling, big enough for a party but not overwhelmingly large like some bowling alleys. I grew up with bowling 10 pin and am still trying to figure out candlepin. I'm always a bit embarrassed when my 6 and 9 year olds beat me!
