Update- They have replaced the ball returns (a much needed item since the old ones were busted up), and they replaced the pin decks with used synthetic ones (even little things like that make a HUGE difference in boosting the pin action- helped me get a 7 bagger and score a 245!!!!) They really did a terrific job and this is the best I'd EVER seen this place!!! Their best deal in my opinion is the Tuesday 2fer nite. Pizza was alright. And the bathrooms are IMMACULATE!! Not too many bowling allies can boast that. Look forward to coming again soon!!!

This bowling alley has made some improvements (new masking graphics, new balls/ pins and newly repainted). But the lanes are still pretty raggedy (the heads especially) as the lanes were in horrible condition before. Hopefully upgrading the lanes to synthetic (even if its just the heads) will be next on the "to do" list. (I have no idea how strong a league base they have in order to justify such a repair.) However, the oil pattern seems pretty good (under an open bowler's point of view).

Just went back after a 2 year absence. What a change the new owners made. Clean, reasonable prices and everything you could want.

This place is old and the girl at the desk was not friendly. We paid for the 2 hour bowling and were more than 1/2 way thru our 3rd & final game. I asked if we could finish and she said it would depend on how far we were. How about sure, no problem finish your game since we inconvenience you . Only 4 of the 30 lanes were being used, the place was dead. We wasted about 10 minutes of our time waiting for removal of pins from the gutters, balls that were not returned, etc. Also, each time we needed the bathroom we had to wait for a key. They have a 6 stall restroom and locked the main door. This place is run down and needs a major over-haul with decor and employees. MouseTrap Lanes is about 20 minutes from here, clean, newer and really friendly staff. That's worth the drive!

Larry the owner is great, as well as staff in general. Lanes are ok but need lotsa work- kinda beat up. The computer scoring is very outdated and messes up a lot. at the beginning of play it scored then stopped for several frames then started again. There are no overhead screens either, just lower level monitors which is rare. All that needs fixing. Otherwise this house is fine and prices for basic open play are reasonable.

this bowling aley is alright. (upstairs w/ 7-11 and laundry below) much better than back in 2000 as far as no more blaring, annoying,depressing oldies (i went on a friday) and they now finally have computer scoring. they have a different pay system; u pay by the time not the games. shoe rental 2.50/ must bowl half hour minimum $10. 1 hour $20 . prices are reasonable considering maybe 5-6 games a halfhour. they also have t shirt and other souvenirs!!. but be warned, theirs cameras everywhere!! and u have to borrow a key from counter to use bathroom . as the immediate area neighborhood is kinda junky. owner Larry is pretty good too. in addition to there snack bars hey even have a delicatessen. lots of pretty murals all around. not half bad.
