“Extremely Expensive and Unfortunately Not Worth It”
Review of King Pinz

Reviewed August 12, 2014

The day we went the bowling alley was almost empty and we asked for 2 lanes for 7 people and they said that the other alleys were booked, so they put us in between 2 groups of over 6 people each. Needless to say it was very crowded and there was not enough seats for everyone in our group and was very uncomfortable when we ordered food. Between eating and the amount of players on 1 lane plus waiting for the players in the other lanes it took us 1 1/2 hr to play 1 game. When we left the other lanes were still empty so there was no reason for them not to give us 2 lanes nor squeeze us in between 2 large groups.

On the plus size the food was very good: pizza with pepperoni, nachos, chicken wings, quesadilla, and cheesy fries. The waiter was also very good and friendly.

This place is extremely expensive for a bowling alley especially since you are crowded in like cattle while more than half of the alleys sit empty. I would definitely NOT recommend this place to anyone.

If you are a serious bowler, don't come here. It is noisy -- that is outside of pins being knocked down. It has flashing lights, loud music, three screens with videos on it or a sports game on with no closed captioning. And the video they played while I was there on a Tuesday afternoon between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM was borderline pornographic. There are kids who bowl with their families there and they show women dancing shaking the goods while scantily clad -- plus two scantily clad women rolling around on the bed. This video is better to be shown on a Sat. night at 10:00 to a bunch of drunks. The lanes have arrow markings I guess to help you aim your ball, but don't expect to see them unless you have night vision goggles. And it's expensive to bowl here. don't bring the kids, but if you are planning to go deaf then this place is for you.

good place to bowl/drink. a lot of arcade noise and a lot of kids running around. not sure what the goal is, because they have a huge bar next to a pin ball machine. so are they going for kids or adults who want to rage. not sure who it is aimed at, but an okay place to go

This place is not cheap. However, after you get there, you do begin to understand why it may cost a little more. The lane area is a little nice than you'd find at most bowling alleys. Also, they have waiters who take orders and bring food and drinks to you at your lane. The food itself was very good.

They also have a nicer arcade area compared to other bowling alleys.

Whether or not this makes it worth the exorbitant price is up to you! For us, I don't think we'll return.

Went here for a Valentine's date with my husband. We had a great time bowling, though we only had an hour so we really pushed to make the most of it and got in three games. We ordered some cheese fries that were good and a few drinks. In the end though for an hour out with an appetizer and maybe 5 drinks it was almost $100 which was more than we really wanted to spend. Maybe with a larger group the cost of the lane doesn't seem so steep, but for just two of us it was more than we wanted to spend.
