I really think they messed up your pricing. Everywhere else I have ever been has never charged people by the hour per person. It’s ridiculous that a family of 4 can only play 1 game in an hour and have the nerve to charge them $40. You want to up your rates during peak hours fine and dandy but your telling everyone to say screw bowlers etiquette lets bowl so we can get our hours worth. I’m unimpressed, don’t think any of my family will be back. Their choice of music is to be desired and it’d be nice to be able to hear when you leave and never use the bathrooms here, they are always dirty your lucky if they have soap in the dispensers.

When you renovated the place why didn’t you resurface the lanes. I doubt they would even pass inspections for league play. Its the 21st century, dried up wood lanes are out of date.

The only reason I go to chippers is because it’s the only bowling alleys in town. Every time I bowl there my equipment needs to be resurfaced. Please resurface your lanes.

As a beginner bowler, I’ve enjoyed the dry lanes at Chipppers: more control, I feel better about myself quicker. For experienced bowlers with lots of different bowling balls for different oil and pattern conditions, and complain about the dry conditions, all I can say is, if you’re a good bowler you should be able to bowl anywhere. And if

The price is way overpriced and the lanes are worn out I think the are like 100 years old and they need to oil them WAY more!!!

Chippers lanes is by far the worst bowling alleys ive ever seen. I have bowled all over the state of Colorado, from Denver, Aurora, to Grand Lake. They only have 8 lanes at Grand Lake and i had an amazing time. They even have where you have to score your own your own bowling! Basically, North is the better of the two but cuts off their amazing 9 tap strike moonlight bowling on saturday nights at 1030 for sign up. My roommate tried to pre charge the 80 dollar price over the phone and they wouldnt let him! Crazy! Bad business at the least! South s*cks because you have to pay the juke box money to listen to music, the bar tender is a joke and closed without announcing last call, theres no selection of balls and they closed early on me and my friends one night when we wanted to keep bowling. Bad business again. I hate you Chipper’s! If I didnt live in Fort Collins and love bowling, I would never go to your alleys again! But, I love bowling and have to put up with your nonsense! Take a freekin business course at CSU, or Front Range for that matter, make money, and have satisfied customers! Out…

i agree with everyone because it is fun to bowl there except you guys really should oil your lanes well then it would kind of be more fun.

I used to bowl at Monte Carlo Lanes and Horsetooth lanes. I refuse to bowl there any longer. They are over priced and are very poorly ran. I used to bowl 3-4 nights a week and also bowled tournaments. Never bowl a tournament there if you expect to get paid. Sincerely yours chipper!

I do not think it is because the lanes are dry. I think it is because the lanes are built differently than the south side of town. If you are use to bowling on the south side of town you will experience a difference at the north side Chippers Lanes.

As a college student who loves bowling, I’ve just gotta say I save a lot of money by hating how dry the lanes are at Chipper’s. I suppose that’s great for me, but bad for business.

Your lanes are so dry that I refuse to bowl there.

Your prizes and everything else is great. But your lanes are really dry, maybe put more oil on them, would make the bowlers a little more happy.

We just wanted to thank Chippers for providing us such great service on 12/22. Our soccer team came for some team “fun”, and the employees were great and we also received such a great group rate! Chippers ROCKS!!! We’ll be back!
