I grew up using this alley as a brunswick zone but now the prices are a bit higher and the young attendants aren’t as courteous. We called in advance to see if there were any specials and were told there weren’t, but 40 minutes after we arrived and were already bowling the alley turned in to cosmic bowling and when we asked what the event was we were informed there was a special after all

this is the most ridiculous bowling alley ever. we got there two hours before they closed, there was one couple bowling and besides that completely dead. they debated on whether or not to let us even bowl because they wanted to close. they weren’t serving food or drinks because it was so dead. they finally decided to let us pay for one game. didn’t give us shoes, just said to go. i swear the minute the last ball hit a pin, the music turned off, lights dimmed and we were told to leave. horrible, horrible, horrible.

S. Morton, thats intereting about the announcement. they BETTER keep it open more than just 1 more year!! if they know whats good for em. it is clearly one of the best bowling allies in south jersey. and in fact i think it should be copied and pasted on the loyle lanes site for when they rebuild. and it undoubtedly runs circles around pike lanes for obvious reasons. if they ever did have to close i wish someone could take all the lanes, and put it in the old garden lanes building, just down the road, where the thrift shop is. make the thrift shop move to the vacant building at delsea/ grove st. that way glassboro still will have a bowling alley. and a shout-out to Kathy B at counter, very nice!!!!! the 1.49 games on weds are greatly appreciated!

We were just there with 11 kids & Kathy at the counter was GREAT!!! I personally don’t think it was that much money for an afternoon of bowling.
BY THE WAY: the announcement while we were there was they are open for at least one more year. So don’t be quick to dismiss it.

The Glassboro bowling alley doesn’t get enough credit. It’s a great place to bowl and people in there are very friendly. The prices are normal and the alley is neat and clean. It is meant for families and friends to have some fun. The Birthday parties there are always given compliments. It is open for business so stop by and see for yourself.

Comment Date: 11/13/2008 Name: They are still OPEN!!
They are still open and under contract by Playdrome. They just got their liquer license and they are picking up a bit. Prices are ok, look for coupons…..can get $1.29 games

league bowlers, are the lanes any better now then last year? i stopped by today and was quite impressed with what i saw. new synthetic lanes AND approaches. hopefully that helps solve the “not-enough-oil” problem as synthetics only use 1/3 of oil wood does. still seems to have the same brunswick zone feel to it but thats good. the brunswick zone sign is still there. No pro shop (I miss Jack slaters proshop there). the lady said the new owner ship was a division of playdrome (good). the prices are: for M-F daytime til 5 : 3.19 game, 3.59 shoe. on weds is a special til 5pm: 1.49 game, 1.29 shoe. very very nice alley!!!!!

It’s open, just not under the Brunswick name. Brunswick didn’t want to renew the contract.

it is offically closed 🙁

Comment Date: 5/26/2008 Name: david
I guess the place closed in may???? NOT, Get your story straight before you run your mouth, the lease isn’t up until the end of June and it will remain a bowling alley, you moron

hey…we tied pike lanes down in bridgeton… older center, wood lanes, but the conditions were real nice and the cost of bowling was reasonable….I hear league play was also pretty flat screens on for all the games..monday and wednesday $1.00 game from 7-11….check it out

Yes all rumors are good, they are closing the door May 26. The ten year lease is up and they are not going to renew the lease! Way to go Brunswick!

Over priced and bad service!!!

WOOOOOHOOOOOO at last!!! We had oil last Wednesday and 2 people shot 300 and i had my highest game ever 287. why do they wait until near the end of the fall season to put oil down????????????????? I just hope it stays the same for the beginning of next fall and stays the same all year.

Comment Date: 2/11/2007 Name: Eugene
At least you had one good night with oil we had none and they oil or try to oil or make it look they are oiling the lanes right before we bowl and i think they don’t know how to run the oil Machine right!!!!!!!

Comment Date: 1/19/2007 Name: Anonymous
So far ONE night out of the year the lanes were oiled good, the of the time rest they just s*ck.

Well i started to bowling again on Wednesday nights and the first night the lanes were bad and the second night the lanes were not bad for the first 2 games then after that the lanes broke down they were dry so i guess they never fixed anything that they said they did. so i would have to say i agree with you all and say the lanes are not any good for league bowlers if you are looking for a good and fun time. we lost some teams because of the lane condition last year and the year before that and i wasn’t coming back but i was told by a guy that worked there they fixed the oil machine but i guess they didn’t and unless they do before the end of the year i will not be back there to bowl again!!!!!! I guess i will be calling Brunswick headquarters again.

I agree with you all,Not only does the lane’s s*ck because they don’t oil them right because i heard a guy ask one of the mechanic when was the lanes last oiled and he said last night.But now they say during league games they are not allowed to have the TV’s on. The only way the can show something is if it is one of there tapes about the lanes and the place. they are really getting out of hand now and for the money we pay them for bowling!!!!!!!!! We are thinking of going to a new place for leauge bowling becasue we heard that it is only Glassboro Brunswick that don’t oil there lanes right.

Dude that sux these lanes dont seem to meet your standards; que horror!!! I find it a shame that brunswick isnt doing as good a job as when playdrome had it . I bowled their when it was playdrome 1996-98 then it was brunswickized. last bowled there in 2002, Yes the newer computers ball returns and whatever other remodelings done in 2000 are great. But overall I like it better when it was playdrome. b/c nicer atmosphere, nicer people, and the lanes were much better scoring when it was play-drome. Que lastima!!! Pero, buena suerte chicos!!!

I Agree the lanes s*ck because they don’t oil the lanes consistence one week out of 2-3 month the lanes are alright( Not good but alright for a little while maybe until the middle of second game then BAM lanes braking down) but most of the time dry to very little oil and lanes brake down quick!!!!! like at the end of first game. They need to do something quick!!! they already lost one whole league to another Bowling center and now alot of people are talking about moving our league out or they are leaving to go else where.
