Visited as a family on a very hot summer day. Didn't realize how much is packed inside to do until we got in. Bowling, arcade, bumper cars, laser tag. Food and drink onsite, reasonable cost. Bingo hall and Keno also. Kids had a lot of fun. Facility is clean, appears to be well maintained. The pricing seems a bit high, specifically the bowling and arcade.

Ever since they switched to the preload card system these arcade games are not worth the cost. Unless you have a discount available the bumper cars and laser tag are too expensive. I say avoid until they bring the cost down. They contract all this out to a third party who advertises great profits. $90 for 4 boys for less than an hour of games? That is great profits, but probably not for the bowling alley!

Dover bowl is a place we try to go 1 or 2x a year. They often have a Groupon that saves the cost of shoe rental and maybe charges the lane at group rate and with 6 of us...that makes a difference.

I have not sprung for it but they also have laser tag and bumper cars. They have a little arcade which we have done. It has some old-style games and some new ones like subway surfer.

The actual bowling alley is nice, offers 10 pin or the local favorite:candlepin. It is comfortable inside and in the evenings they have a resturaunt/bar. (During the day they will cook you a pizza but there usually isn't any activity in there-which is good for us with little kids)

Nice place...check it out!

Looking for something to do on a blustery January Saturday afternoon and wound up here at Dover Bowl. It was a great afternoon with my husband. They have 10 pin and candle pin bowling . . . reasonable price for three games- $39, customer service was very helpful. We had a great time!
