Awesome place for bowlers who have a passion for the game. Staff will take care of their customers in a professional manner and make sure everyone is happy. Definitely recommended!

This place is serious about bowling. No fancy laser lights, black lights, fog machines, et cetera. Great place for serious bowlers trying yo avoid distracting birthday parties and accommpanying lights and music. Can’t wait to play on leagues this year!

This is a good bowling center to bowl at. The owner/Pro is a very nice guy. He backs up what he sells. If something is wrong he will fix it for free.

I had such a wonderful time at Fountain Bowl in Fountain Valley!! If you join the mailing list with either your email or address they will send you discounted bowling. I just got to bowl for $.25 cents. It was FANTASTIC!!! They have $1 games every day. I would really recommend this center. The customer service was wonderful. They were so friendly to me and my family every time I go in there.

Summer is a great time to bowl at Fountain Bowl. Deals galor. $1 Dollar Thursdays for everything. My brother lives nearby and it is our bowling alley of choice.

Comment Date: 8/27/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Great bowling alley, but I wish they’d lower the price of open bowling a bit.

Comment Date: 8/23/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Best bowling center EVER! I have never seen a cleaner, friendlier establishment. The lanes are awesome and so is the food. They have a typical “snack bar” but also have a pizza place inside the center with tables and all. The Cosmic Bowling was funnest I’ve ever been and they have DJ who rocks the house. And if you feel like doing a little karoake, Ozzie’s Bar has it all. I’ve been coming here since the 80’s and it has definitely rolled with the times, for the better. Thanks for giving me and my friends such a decent place to hang out.

this center is a official pba practice center. the lanes are fairly maintained and the staff is friendly.

Comment Date: 8/9/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Most of the problems this place has is that it is part of Brunswick. Everything seems to have to go back to Fountain Bowl. Brunswick Corp bowling as merdy recreation, rather than a sport. Brunswick may be the biggest maker of equipment, but they don’t have the right mentality to run bowling centers to reach SERIOUS bowlers. Most Brunswick Owned Centers leagues are way down. The people here are friendly, but at times you get the impression that they get burned out since the center appears to be short staffed.

Comment Date: 7/27/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
This is the greatest Bowling Center, bar none! The New Owner, Mr. Habibi is Great. Their whole family works in the center and really take good care of us! Guys, if you are looking for a good place to bowl. This is it!

Comment Date: 7/27/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Thank you for the comments as of, we have hired a new DJ. He wont be asking you for a tip to play a song. Please visit our website for more info.

Great bowling center all around!

Comment Date: 7/19/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
This is a great bowling alley! Visited 7/1 while on vacation, we got in with no problem. Lanes were a bit dry and tough but good! Nice pro shop, and they were busy that day. Recommended.

Comment Date: 7/11/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
One of the cleanest bowling centers. I’ve been to ever. They have great specials weeknights but you can get coupons at their website and bowl for up to 75% off! Overall a great experience!

Comment Date: 7/10/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
This location has recieved new management and they are great, the pro shop is open and everyone is very helpful. The lanes are really well maintained now.

Comment Date: 7/9/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Love this bowling alley, best in Orange County if you ask me. The staff are friendly, the lanes are great, the leagues are awesome! The prices are good, well that is, if you’re a league bowler. Overall, great place!

Comment Date: 7/8/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
nice lanes, nice staff. price can be somewhat expensive if you don’t have a coupon or bowl by the hour such as in Cosmic bowl. they accept coupons as well. overall a good alley. most partons use courtesy.

Comment Date: 7/7/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
My friends and I had a greta time during cosmic bowling with all the lights and music. We will defintely be back for more!

Comment Date: 7/7/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl

Status of Tournaments should be posted on your website? It’s shame that USBC members compete and standings are not made available for viewing, we have to wait 4-6 weeks to hear from you all.

Comment Date: 6/30/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Very nice and tidy alley. has a LOT of lanes with friendly customer service. very modern and has a lot of tech such as LCD tv’s everywhere you look. they have the new Brunswick equipment there with the touchscreens and diner tables. the place itself is very roomy so you aren’t back to back with another party’s lane. the only downside there was that it was always busy. they put me on a waiting list for about an hour for a lane…at 2 a.m.

Comment Date: 6/30/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
60 lanes, good lanes, moderate food, no a/c

Comment Date: 6/30/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
When I am in the Fountain Valley, CA area I bowl at Fountain Bowl. Everything about this bowling center is top natch! The staff, lanes and food are excellent!On Sunday’s, between 9am-12noon, you can eat breakfast and all the bowling you can get in for 3 hours for $10 including breakfast—pancakes or french toast and bacon as well as orange juice or coffee!!

Comment Date: 6/28/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
What they have done(new owner) is fantastic look out for this place in the near future. old owner didn’t care or didn’t know the business, just interested in the money i guess, already made wonderful changes in decor, lanes, lightning, and soon to add new overhead scorers, looking forward to getting back there.

Comment Date: 6/27/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Could your website please list some useful info such as prices for bowling, specials etc…?

Comment Date: 6/24/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
This bowling alley fabulous! I love the food, drinks, music, atmosphere! It is the best bowling alley I have been to! I don’t know about the material of the lanes because I just bowl for fun!

Comment Date: 6/23/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl

This is an awesome place! The people who work there are friendly and helpful.

Comment Date: 5/20/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Fountain Bowl is a great place to bowl. It has 60 lanes though but, it is fun bowling there.

Comment Date: 5/20/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
This bowling has greatly improved due to its renevations, it has great monitors for scoring and a few more games in the arcade. The fun zone(main arcade) is still being worked on right now. This would probably have to be one of my favorite bowling alleys

Comment Date: 5/19/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
The house is a very clean center and the people that work at the center is very nice and the shot is a good one bowl this weekend there at the state tournament did great thanks big t

Comment Date: 5/19/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
I bowl in a league at Fountain Bowl and it is very nice except for the ball returns. I have a lot of dings and scratches in my ball after bowling on the league. They need to invest a little and replace the ball returns.

Comment Date: 5/17/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
i love this bowling alley. whats better than 50 cent shoes + 50 cent games?

Comment Date: 5/17/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
My family and I love to bowl here. The staff is awesome and we always have a good time!!

Comment Date: 5/11/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl

Is midnight bowling available?

Comment Date: 5/11/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
Great place. Lanes are dry about 90%, but makes for a great hook. Nice bar and good food.

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
The best small or big center around! Always clean and well maintained. The new lanes are nice! My kids bowled their music bowling, and had a great time. The crowd is very good.

Comment Date: 5/5/2012 Name: Fountain Bowl
I can’t see why people complained here – as someone who wants to be a serious bowling, Fountain Valley is one of the best in the region. Clean, great lane conditions, not bad at all. I’d love to join a league here.

Fountain Bowl is a very well maintained facility! They seem to have kicked out the gangbangers and the leagues there are awesome. The coaches in the youthleagues are very helpful, the food there is exceptional, the arcade is good, and the Cosmic Bowling Rox! Tell ya Fountain Bowl seems to have cleaned up and also, they added the new Brunswick FrameWorx Automatic Scoring with 10-Frame Format Views of new Vector Animations and installed slim sleck new flat screen monitors which will make any bowling center more upscale!!!

Nice bowling alley but, the new sign in front of the place is small and way too low.

I was appauled when I heard the comments in reguards to Fountain Bowl. Fountain bowl has by far been the best Family establishment since the 80’s. Have you seen the NEW improvments they have done in 2008? I have and its fantastic, from New Parking Lot, Newly remodled Pizza Parlor,and Freshly enhanced food court dining area. The staff has a great attitude! The lanes are spectacular not to mention Ozzie’s Bar Great place for Kareoke,Pool,Darts, And Flat Screen T.V.’s Everywhere so if you had a bad expeirience before check them out again things have greatly improved…. Thanks Fountain Bowl

always going on saturday night. with family or friends. love taking people to your bowling center. the guys at the register couldn’t be any faster in making that line move. thanks again. see you saturday, again.

I recommend Fountain Bowl for their lanes and only their lanes. I usually bowl here Monday and Wednesday because the rates are reasonable. However, the owner really needs to do something about their employees. There is a guy who works there on Wed by the name of Bill. All I gotta say is that he’s the reason why people should avoid going to fountain bowl on Wed. He is very disrespectful to costumers. Seems like he always has something up his you know what…

Comment Date: 10/30/2008 Name: Bob
“weekly bowler” is abolutely correct. The lanes are great. The prices are reasonable. And the customer service could really use some work. That goes for the snack bar lady too. A smile wouldn’t kill her… or would it?

Comment Date: 10/29/2008 Name: weekly bowler
The lanes are great. The prices are reasonable. The costumer service is horrible, but i still come back because of the lanes…

Comment Date: 7/23/2008 Name: John
I would take a close look at the previous three posting. It appears that the owners wrote ads for their center. Prior to those posting the real bowlers posted their thoughts.
I bowled at Fountain last week and still have not seen much of a change in customer service and employee attitude.

Why don’t the staffs wake up and be friendly to customers. After all, if you don’t like your job, then get out of fountain bowl. Better yet, get out of Fountain Valley City!!! I don’t care about how much the price for bowling…I care about how you staffs treated customers….without us (customers), you employees would pick cans from the street of fountain valley. Doesn’t the manager at fountain bowl know this thing and for heaven’s sake do something. People donated money for Kelly Osborn Memorial Fundraiser, which is the VP’s daughter. Mr. VP…do something to help yours staffs be friendly…is that too much to ask….thanks………

My son and I were in So Cal on Easter and were supposed to meet a friend at Fountain,,, I cant believe what I experienced… $5.50 a game? you would figure 70 lanes 3/4 empty they should have had an Easter family special.. So I forked up the $$$,,, At the side of the desk there was the lane attendant, maybe mechanic and a desk person maybe mgr, sitting at a table playing cards,, and get this for $$$ all out in the open,,I work at a bowling alley and when you see little kids walking on the lanes you stop them. I had to tell the lane attendant to stop them. Then he ran back to see if he won any $$$ Real tacky,,, I wish there was somone in charge there,,, oh hyeah he was playing cards too….

Have to reset the pins every other frame because the pinsetter hiccups. Bowling center feels cheesy and dated. I don’t understand the appeal of this place.

Comment Date: 9/25/2006 Name: leslie1
Good center, but i think new graphics are needed. the other ones look fadded and worn out

Comment Date: 5/3/2006 Name: sherry
fountain is by far the best center in o.c. the staff are great. why do you think the pros come here. best leagues in town.

Comment Date: 8/24/2005 Name: Armando
This place is the best bowling center you can find in Orange County! It’s a bit expensive but it’s really worth playing there! Cosmic bowling at Fountain Valley is really cool! It’s on Fridays at 11:30pm to 2:00am for $30 an hour but on Saturdays it’s only $16 per person and you can bowl as long as you want from 11:00pm to 2:00am.
…you gotta check this place out because it’s the home of the most beautiful lanes in Orange!
