I would have to strongly disagree with the comment made about the lane conditions. They are kept in regulation and checked often to make sure they are, I see them pulling tapes all the time to check the oil. This is not your typical house oil pattern that many of the centers in town have on their lanes. It is slightly more difficult, but any decent bowler can figure out the shot if they try. Air Lanes doesn’t just hand out honor scores like many other centers in town do, which is why I like bowling at Air. They staff is great and they recently remodeled the whole place. It looks great and still just as much fun. Greatest recreational center in town as well. Weekends during the day are smoke free so I can bring the kids in and not have to worry about them inhaling all that 2nd hand smoke. Great bowling specials every night, and awesome drink specials… gotta love the 2 for 1’s. I bowl there all the time, any night is a good night for bowling at Air. Keep up the good work!!!!!

Air-Lanes is an o.k. place to bowl if you are a recreational bowler; however, if you are a serious bowler I would NOT RECOMMEND this place to anyone! The lanes are never oiled according to league regulations. Every week we have to fully adjust our bowling just to compensate for this place not following rules. Also, there have been several errors in the score keeping that the “house” is responsible for. As for the staff… there is one lady (tall w/short hair and a young male (just started there a couple of months ago) that are nice and helpful. However, if you’re looking for a helpful and friendly staff, you’re in the wrong place. Someone needs to teach these people how to smile. The owner’s and their daughter need some people skills. As a result of their inadequacies, our team and a few others will not be returning.

I was there for three hours and I found something to look at or do for the three hours. I am 15 and it is hard to find something to do in a bowling alley for three hours. They had great lanes, everyone was nice and the pro in the pro shop was very helpful. As well as he knew a lot about bowling and the lanes there.

I am very impressed with all the improvements that have been made to Air-Lanes with the new owners. My friends and I think the lanes are the best kept in Des Moines. The staff is wonderful (I must say I don’t miss the goofy dark haired guy that always worked the counter. He was EXTREMELY RUDE to the customers as well as the other employees) the staff knows what they are doing, very friendly and will go out of their way to help their customers. The food is always good and hot and made how we like it. I love that they have started bringing the food and condiments to our table, unless they are really busy. I’m glad to see they have kept that up. The tiny girl bartender makes great drinks and knows how to get things done behind the bar. She knows her liquors, mixed drinks and how to pour a great shot. She is the best bartender that we feel you have hired and kept on. She may be tiny but she can hold her own against me and my friends. We also are very impressed with the new manager, Karen, she has made it such fun to come bowling. She has really made Air-Lanes run smoother just in the short time she has been there. We love her sense of humor and the jokes she tells. All in all we are really impressed and happy with the recent changes the owners have made and with all the staff. We just wished you stayed open later on Sunday nights, there is never anything to go to on Sundays. We will continue to only come to Air-Lanes. Why take the chance and go anywhere else when you have just what we need at your bowling center. THANK YOU for giving us a great place to go and have a great time and a lot of laughs. Bill Corrick
