Lang's is by far the BEST center in RI Forget the rest! Best GM Best Staff Best Food Best Service Best Leagues BUSIEST Center Best Bowlers Best Pro Shop 100% The BEST of the BEST

Comment Date: 11/27/2018 Name: Happy Bowler
Lang's is the BEST center in RI hands down. The place is packed with bowlers & management has so much to offer to all bowlers, patrons. BEST Center in RI Kuddos to the Lang Family Ed is smiling down.

Comment Date: 9/22/2016 Name: Anonymous
Lang's is the best center ever! Always was & will continue to be! Ed Lang was a real gentleman & knew his customers unlike the owners today in other centers or corporate all they care about is $$$

Comment Date: 5/27/2016 Name: Striker
At Have a ball, the place runs itself and with an unlimited checking account with $$$ anything is possible! Carl is a loser and Richard & David only care about the $$$$ they are not bowlers & are absentee owners unlike their grandfather Ed Lang!

Comment Date: 5/10/2016 Name: Have a Ball
Wow so many people are complaining about a person that brought a bowling center back from the dead. Its clearly the best in the state right now and will be for years to come. Its so funny that most of the comments come from a select few bowling alley rats that just don't fit in at any center. Kind of funny that the center has a wait to bowl almost every night, I guess that guy Carl the Manager is pretty stupid and doesn't know how to run a business. To bad the dummies that have nothing better to do with there lives than complain should make them selves not anonymous. Typical RI men's league bowlers that think they know everything.

Comment Date: 4/14/2016 Name: Anonymous
@ Anonymous the only thing that is good at Langs is the place is clean! Management stinks, they need classes in Customer Service, the Pro Shop is never open, we thought the boys were committed to the game guess not as they are absentee....

Comment Date: 3/10/2016 Name: Anonymous
Carl is a mechanic all day long! Richard & David have no clue what goes on day in day out! Open your yes kids!

Comment Date: 3/5/2016 Name: Anonymous
Maybe you all need a petition to get rid of him! Clearly he's not managerial material!

Comment Date: 2/11/2016 Name: Anonymous
so true carl derosa is not what everyone thinks he is

Comment Date: 1/8/2016 Name: Anonymous
The Lang's boys need a person who can manage as well as know the game well! Carl,is not the person as well as he hires all family & friends! To close for comfort & the boys need to be there more plain simple!

Comment Date: 11/18/2015 Name: Anonymous
I also witnessed the manager Carl yell, swear & threaten a young man not too long ago. I thought by now the owners would of addressed this situation but they believe him over the bowlers. I saw him throw his equipment down and walk off the lanes in the midst of a bowling match. Very unprofessional to hear a manager swear so loud & carry on like an animal. Why wasn't this addressed anyhow

Comment Date: 8/28/2015 Name:  A disappointed bowler
Gm at lanes fooled me at first so it he was a real nice guy and sincere as time went on I got to see his true colors what a disappointment here we go again I chose not to believe the rumors about him and give him a chance I guess they weren't room is after room

Comment Date: 8/28/2015 Name: Bowling since the early 70s
I have noticed thecenterI was going through a transformation it's apparent that money has been put in and brought the center back to life good job to the Lang's brothers while bowling I noticed the new manager Carl Carrianne on yelling cursing and throwing bowling balls obviously he was having a bad night now I know why he was a mechanic for so many years behind the scenes instead of upfront somethings will never change there is asaying lead by example he probably had to much to drink that night very unprofessional maybe while they keep improving they may consider replacing him with someone that has a little bit of an education a background in some kind of professionalism on managerial skills sorry to see that it wasn't a pretty sight hopefully they'll find the right manager for the job I guess he's good at what he does with wrenches but if I was people it appears to be one thing but his real colors come out in time

Comment Date: 7/25/2015 Name: Anonymous
Why isn't the Pro Shop ever open? Come on Langs boys get this open!

Congrats to the "late" Ed Lang for being inducted into the HOF for bowling! Ed was a great promoter of the game! His Grandsons accepted on his behalf!

What a great job Lang's Bowlarama did with the RI Masters, all went well & was truly a great tournament to watch! Congrats to all that qualified! Looking for ward to next years!

The highest scores ever! Really fix the lanes make it competitive! 5 yr. olds can bowl these lanes & score!

Comment Date: 3/23/2014 Name: 300 300 300 300
Why would you make the shot so easy unreal! Fix the lanes will ya! Makes the game a waste of time!

Comment Date: 3/14/2014 Name: Illegal Shot
Hard to believe the lanes in this center are questionable. The Lang Family better get involved sooner then later...also people shouldn't be bowling as they won't get recognition if they score high! Duncan DO Little

Comment Date: 3/6/2014 Name: AMF
@ say it like it is! Touché the game is suppose to be fun & a bit competitive! Who needs the "drama" queen acting like he owns every center? If the people only knew his history but the truth prevails! Wait most of us do know! Good luck & continue to enjoy the game!

Comment Date: 2/26/2014 Name: Senior citizen
Ed Lang ran an honest business no BS hope the grandchildren do the same! Keep the trouble makers off the lanes!

Comment Date: 2/24/2014 Name: Say it like it is!
@ Anonymous I agree, the Lang's Family took their center back & should keep it as family oriented! Keep the "drama" off the lanes continue to run it as a professinal atmosphere! People join leagues to have fun yes some are compeitive but no need to allow the so called "superstars" in & rule the roost. Clearly they are not needed in centers like Lang's. Ed Lang was a great man & most of fair & square to the patrons of his center! NO one controlled his center! Good luck!

Comment Date: 2/17/2014 Name: Anonymous
@None yes you are right. Let's hope they (lang's) don't let the thugs come in and take over the place. Keep it real.

Comment Date: 2/9/2014 Name: None
The new manager I think his name is Carl very friendly!! You can see the changes that were made! Place is clean and safe to go to on a Friday or Saturday night! Great bands! Prices are reasoniable! Only complaint no piña colda mix!!!

Comment Date: 10/5/2013 Name: jean
I came in for your karaoke last night 10/4. At first the bar area looked fun and inviting. After settling in I went up to the bar to order a drink. It took 17 minutes for your bartender to come over and say 'what do you want' I ordered my drink paid and walked away. Daringly I went up to order a 2nd drink. This time it took 28 minutes for him to acknowledge me. In that half hour that I waited, I watched him drink a cup of beer and a shot with a customer? I ended up just leaving. Dissatisfied, unhappy customer and I will never return

Comment Date: 9/7/2013 Name: Anonymous
@full roller I agree.

Comment Date: 8/31/2013 Name: Manager
The GM here was the mechanic brfore being promoted, therefore he doesnt have the personality nor the knowledge to handle the public! I would have insisted I was given what I paid for! End of story!

Can you please get someone who has up to date knowledge of DRILLING AND LAYING OUT NEW BOWLING BALLS

Comment Date: 3/16/2013 Name: Cut finger!
Bowler next to me used same ball she cut her finger badly due to a chip in the ball I had a scrape but after seeing her blood and I never met her wanted finger clean and ensure ball got cleaned guy at counter was so sweet got his manager who came over asked if I had damage?? Said person next to me shared a ball she bled sorta freaked out just paid for 3 hours was there only 45 minutes all I wanted was a new ball size 8 medium hard to find stiupid ass guy rolled his eyes walked away

Comment Date: 3/9/2013 Name: unhappy
what a joke this place made of bowling everyone and their mother gets a 300 and 800 series the owners clearly don't have a clue. im taking my money to the owners if you wanted something other than a bowling alley you should have bought a chucky cheese that's what your making langs into

Comment Date: 3/7/2013 Name: Surprise
Hey You people that call your self good at bowling Get a life them moron owners put a shot down that a bunch of blind retarded morons can shoot on. So it comes to this if you need your rewards all you have to do is go and bowl at langs you will get all the 300's and 800's you need. so if you wish to be good at bowling you need a more harder shot than that.

Comment Date: 2/20/2013 Name: phantom
i was the amf manager that was on duty before langs took over, before someone calls me a zero all i have to say is i was only hired as a food and beverage manager for amf, then they got rid of all the managers but me and the gm. then the gm was never there. does anyone know what it is like to try and run a place with no help, pay bills, train, clean, customer service, deal with the bullcrap, try to keep the peace and still get told by the upper ups that i cant have help. before you judge look at how they treated there help with no training

Comment Date: 2/19/2013 Name: purist
is this a bowling center or a carnival. they made the lanes so easy everybody and there grandmother gets a crazy high score.who said a bowling center has to look like someone ate a bunch of crayons and threw up.totaly disapointed

Comment Date: 2/14/2013 Name: We need YOUR vote!! Best place to bowl!!!!

Comment Date: 2/11/2013 Name: justwaiting
is there a carnival in town

Comment Date: 1/24/2013 Name: Anonymous
They are new to the game,hopefully they will learn the game. They shouldn't be trusting anyone with their investment as their grandfather was HANDS on everyday with Marilyn as the bookeeper and Ed Lang always had a great GM handling the center. If you do not have the best GM possible the center will never be profitable! Someone that knows the game,understands the game,PARTICAPTES in the game,respected in the game of 10 pin bowling and can draw people into the center with good quality tournaments,leagues incentives etc... Good luck!

Are you kidding me???? What do you have short arms and deep pockets. Spend some money MAN...This place cant run on your $10.00. Bring $100.00 that would be more like it.

Comment Date: 1/22/2013 Name: what ever...
Hey surprise... Get a life and dont go to Langs... the center dont need people like you in it. LOL

Comment Date: 1/22/2013 Name: Mamacat
I went there last Sunday with my family and friends. The place has improved a lot recently. It is clean, fresh, and very friendly atmosphere. You can have so much fun with only $10!

This generation cannot compare to the Original Ed Lang days...already missed opportunitys for 2012-13 season.

Comment Date: 11/2/2012 Name: Way back when...
@bwb It will take time for Lang's Bowlarama to return to the original Ed Lang Center. My family (sisters) bowled the Monday Night Ladies Classic League it was one of the best leagues offered for woman! Let's hope they can bring it all back. Friday night "pot" games were also a ritual,some of the best bowlers participated. Scotch Doubles were awesome also on a boring Sunday night!!! The East Bay needs a good center!!!! Good luck!

Comment Date: 10/24/2012 Name: Anonymous
@bwb maybe for 2013 -2014 season but for 2012-13 season they didn't market the center properly to get the bowlers to return...I was hoping to join a September league closer to home but no luck...hope they do well.

Comment Date: 10/20/2012 Name: bwb
Remember when it used to be about you, the customer? The Lang family does ...and they're back!

It doesn't say if they have leagues etc...will have to get there 2013-14 season.

Comment Date: 9/27/2012 Name: Interested
@checkin in, thanks I will check it out.

Comment Date: 9/26/2012 Name: checkin in
They have a website now. Very big changes in the center if you are not aware of them already. No AMF means the employees are happy therefore you the bowler gets pretty much anything you want. 12 draft beers, 42" flat screens with a few designated for sports in between pairs. A flawless shot layed down by the top of the line kegel walker, new interion color scheme just to name a few. Lets just say it's not the Langs you remember from past years, its the Langs YOU wanted.

Does anyone know when Lang's will have a website up n running and when it will all be completed with what we can expect as far as new leagues as the 2012-13 season is already started...thanks

New Classic league date and time that will be much better than a late night league on a tuesday.Friday nights either 7pm or 7:30pm. Open to men or woman...3 people per team. Entering average per team max 660 and handicap 75% of 220. The League will be 30 weeks $25 a week. $9000 1st place. The meeting will be September 21st at 7:30pm and thats when everything can be discussed and see where it takes us. This league is designed to promote bowling and show off the best bowlers around. The center will be the treasuer and handle all money so it will be there when the leagues ends. I hear there is 20 lanes available for the league, so lets fill them up. The condition will be voted on by league also.

How great it will be to have the Lang family back at Lang's Bowlarama...I am sure Ed Lang would be pleased to know family has taken it back! Ed Lang was a hand's on owner,visible to the bowlers,promoted the game and truly cared for the bowlers! Hoping some new league's, tournaments are introduced as the game of 10 pin bowling needs this! I will definitely join a league here when it's all said and done! Good luck!

Carl Derosa Taking over.....that place would be out of business within 24 hrs if thats true they might as well take a manager from cranston and put them back there someone that doesent know the game or even know how to keep score for christ sakes

Comment Date: 7/26/2012 Name: Looking for information
Does anyone know if they've hired a manager yet? Heard rumors that Carl Darosa Jr was taking over, but wasnt sure.

Does anyone know when the Lang's family will officially take over? We are all waiting patiently!

Comment Date: 3/12/2012 Name: Scratch Bowler way back when
@ Good news, I am sure once the Lang Family takes over it will like the good ole days! Ed Lang was a gentleman and a GREAT business man so I am sure his family was taught well! It will be a welcome change to all the bowlers!

Comment Date: 2/27/2012 Name: Scratch Bowler
@ All the way, I so agree with you. Hard to believe that EP would hire that guy,really if they did their homework they would know Mr.NO personality is NOT the guy for a business dealing with the public for sure! People think we are writing because we are jealous, LOL jealous, NOT we have a brain and we the history of this guy! Anyone in the circuit does not like or care for him,it's a known fact. He knows it himself! He's wearing a path from the office to the snack bar back n forth. League officers don't even know who he is imagine this. Neither did he nor EP ownership announce the change nor introduce him, guess that tells the story!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: EP Bowler
@ all the way, class? He needs to start at level K for kindergarten. God skipped his crib for many things, starting with personality, the leagues don't even know who the GM is, they still go see Dave, imagine this? He doesn't even wear the "white" shirt like the managers are suppose to do,he dresses like he's in the nursing home, and it's freezing in EP lanes! Bringing him in to manage has certainly "upset" EP lanes for sure! He is not liked for sure!

Comment Date: 2/26/2012 Name: Anonymous
A all the way! LUCKY YOU UNLUCKY US! EP is already failing with the "chooch" for real! UGH I know of two groups that had funraisers at EP that will NOT return because we have the "chooch"

Glad the state tournanent is here and not EP Lanes. Veltri has been there ,what, 4 months and the place is like an upside down tomato can ,bobbing in the ocean. he really needs to go to some type of class...

Just reminder the State Tournament will be held at Lang's. Let's support this RI.

Comment Date: 2/17/2012 Name: Good news
Hopefully this place becomes great again. with so few good centers (walnut, oml, alley katz being the only ones I can think of) and all the bs drama I've seen or heard from doing travel and knowing people in leagues or subbing it's just all really sad. As it stands now youve got 2 decent choices up north for next year- walnut and Langs and down south oml and maybe alley Katz. These other centers need to listen up and get their shot together

Comment Date: 1/17/2012 Name: EP Bowler
It will be great to have Lang's Bowlarama BACK as Lang's! Ed Lang was a real gentleman,he knew the business,he was hands on and ran a great bowling center. He worked everyday and he knew who his customers were! EP is privastley owned and I have NEVER seen either owner at the center invovled with we the bowlers,they let others run their fscilitys in the lane. WTG Lang's YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Corporate is usually not good you are correct.

Heard that Bob Toth is looking to buy Lang's. Perhaps he could get some business back from AMF Cranston. Independent will be much better than corporate.

Way back when I was a Jr.bowler at Lang's,Mr. Lang was hands on,he ran a tight ship,had good people working for him,WITH him,I am so glad the Lang family is coming back. Mr. Lang aka Ed Lang was indeed a gentleman. I hope his family bring back Lang's to what it was. I also hope they are able to get a GREAT PRO SHOP on board! Someone that can drill the equipment for all bowlers! As far as the manager's position goes, I hope they employ a person with lots of experience that understands the game 100%. I know AMF ruined this place,however if anyone can bring it back it will the Lang Family! WTG Lang family. As far as the manager that ruined this center I believe he crossed the bridge on the East Bay! Hope he stays there and sinks that center! He fits right in with the element there.

In my experiences at AMF Lang's, I have had fair experiences, in leisure and competitive settings (ive bowled there in open play, practice, league, and tournament) Its a standard AMF center: prices are a bit higher then your independent centers, and the lanes are HPL surface (they will hook more than an average lane surface). Ive never honestly had a "bad" experience there and Ive bowled at Lang's extensively. I think that maybe the staff could use more training as they sometimes do not know how to perform simple tasks (as a former AMF employee, ive told them how but overall, it's average. I do like the elevated lounge though behind lanes 1-10 (there is often a good game of Pitch going on at any given time). There is often hearsay that AMF is finally giving up the lease, so if it is true, I am curious to know who is in line to assume operations. It is a decent market and someone with the right concepts could do great things with the facility.

I bowl here and my ball hooked too much. But what do you expect. Bowling away from your normal house, lane conditions are diffrent. I really enjoyed Langs Lanes, great food, good employees, and after a few games I adjusted, I bowled very well. Langs is a very good house. Going there today on oiled lanes. It will be fun.

Used to bowl here, ever week, 3 games. That was until I was treated like {deleted} when I went there. The lanes were breaking down on me and the lanes are poorly maintained. I either could not hook the ball or it hooked too much. However there were two employees there that I particularly liked. I tried taking my Brunswick Danger Zone there, and the bowlers there were giving me this MASSIVE look. At first I did not know what their problem was, and then I looked at the B on my ball. I was so pissed I got my money back and left. Really? I can't use a Brunswick bowling ball there, and the staff s*cks. Not to mention their prices. $4.00 a game and $5 for shoe rental? Nah, I'll head to Walnut Hill Bowl where the shoe rental isn't more than the actual bowling. Oh well Langs. You have lost my business. I now bowl at Walnut Hill Bowl and LOVE ITT :)

THIS PLACE S*CKS.The lanes don't even stop you when you bowl all you have paid for and then they make you pay if you go over. Then there was another time when there was a drunk creep at my lane that wouldn't leave me them {deleted} alone... and all the people there were really {deleted} loud. They were a**h*l*s to my mother and me when she took me, and shoe rental is OUTRAGEOUS!!! $4.55 TO RENT SHOES?!!? I DON'T THINK SO.

There is no drunk roaming that ally so those are lies. Nice clean place. Lanes are awsome. Food is excellent. Great weight selection for bowlers of all ages.

I have been bowling here for many years thru the jr program and now adult leagues, they finally got the synthetic lanes back in September, this is finally a high scoring house with improving personnell. Which I have known for many years, I don't know what these other guys are talking about. There is no drunkenness there whatsoever and the place is clean and it's decent to take a date for a nite of bowling.

It's just a nasty place. With nasty customers (that grab little 13 yr old girls' butts) & a manager that approves of the behavior. The place is a dump & very frustrating bowling when the machine break down every 10 minutes.

I think this is the most nasty bowling alley I've ever been to I have three younger chidren and I do not think they should have to witness drunk females acting out sexually
