Havent visited this alley in a couple of years. People who judge a business because of one bad news reporting are close minded and easily influenced. I’m gonna start coming again to support a local business and have great fun.

Tonight was my first time at your establishment. I went with my friends Pete & Marie. We all live in PA, but we were having dinner at Applebee’s across from Concord mall and decided to bowl in Delaware. Your plave was very neat and the staff were helpful and informative. We each bowled 3 games and had a wonderful time. Next time we want to bowl, we will definitely come back to your place.

I bowl in a league at First State and we just started back this week. It looks awesome! Love the carpet. Everything looks new and fresh. I also saw myself on the monitor as I walked in the door and the sign that says “Smile you are on camera 24/7.” Great idea in this day and age. Keep up the good work.

You can tell that the people who write comments about a shooting that happened once in thirty years must live in a cave. Where have you been. First State is not in a war-zone, I go there with my family frequently and feel very safe. There are shootings everywhere…in shchool, banks and even Wendys. The person that shot the guy knew him and came there for that purpose. It wasn’t some random shooting like at Wendys. talk about what you know. I guess ignorance is bliss, huh?

The only bowling center where if you ask how is the shot, you may get a response to just duck when the bullets come flying. It’s not the fault of ownership that this place is in a war-zone location.

Do I really want to bowl here? Do they rent bullet-proof vests like rental shoes. I don’t want to die having fun 🙁

First state is the cleanest bowling alley, best staff, and also has a competitive shot on the lane, unlike other bowling alleys.

This establishment is one of the finest. It is only 28 lanes but the staff are courteous, polite and it is very clean. We had our daughter’s birthday party there and we have had many of our friends go back often. It was great fun for all ages.
