The lanes have oil sitting on them, and it puts little holes in your ball. The prices are way too high, the worst bowling center i have bowled at.

Your right whoever said the mngt s*cks, owners are rude, b*tchy, and just a**es. I’ll go out of my way to wait till 1 of the younger guys are up there helpin people, they seem to care about business and happy folk. I bowl league there and if this don’t change, a ton of us won’t be around. You can only lose soo many and the doors close, keeep it up!

My bowling ball now has little holes in it from the ball return. Nice customer service, just may need to upgrade.

The lanes at Westdale s*cks, and the owners don’t care bout their league bowlers. They lie and they have the same old woman as league secetary on ever league except Wednesday Nights. She doesn’t know what she is doing, and she comes up with new rules of her own. The owners don’t listen to bowlers. All they care bout is a buck. I would recommond Mays or Cedar Rapids Bowling Center for any league members if they want to have good games. I said good bye to westdale and will never go back there even they paid me a million dollars to go back.

I always get a 10-pin when I throw a perfect ball.

Customer service is terrible! This older gal was awful & rude. It’s smoky and overpriced.

I think westdale bowling alley is the best, it is my 2nd year bowling there in a league. My high game there is a 252.

I have bowled here once, older center. But they have taken care of it. The guy at the counter was nice. The wood lanes were in decent shape, but were dry when I bowled on them, Sat. afternoon. If you throw a hook, you’ll love those lanes. Hope to go back there and bowl again. I’m not from around Cedar Rapids.

Bowling ball damage happens, Westdale always makes it right with the customer, unlike some other centers in the area. No certified center could have warped lanes, lanes are checked and certified on an annual basis, I have found that Westdale has a very good shot, I bowl on Thursdays in the west side 8 league and have seen my average increase over 20 pins in the last 3 years, I find the shot challenging, yet very scoreable.

Lanes are warped and some bad boards. Knew someone who damaged their ball on the lane.

I’ve been to all 4 centers in Cedar Rapids & I can say without a doubt that this one is the best! Great bar staff, courteous front desk staff & above average food. Lazer Tag is also most enjoyable. When I read the other comments from people, I thought they were crazy! They can’t be talking about the same bowling center that my family frequents at least once a week. Thank you.

The smokers there are horrible.
Why can’t you have non-smoking?

Nice staff in the bowling area. Crappy staff in the food area and it took them forever to just get us a drink. Laser tag was the best. The bowling was ok.

I had some fun, laser tag was the best and the bowling area people were nice but the food people weren’t nice and were very slow at getting our drinks.

I love Westdale Bowling. Their quarter mania is awesome! I had never been comsic bowling, but when I went it was so much fun. Some girls from work and I are going later this week. Hope to see you there!

Fights or near fights are happening all the time. Sale of alcohol needs to be looked at, and sergeant at arms needs to do their duty and not stick up for their own bowlers.

This a great bowling alley, and it is a lot of fun.

Kids loved the $1.00 games and shoes this summer. Everything worked well. The video instant replay is awesome. We are going again.

Consistant lane conditions, helpful staff. The best extreme bowling I’ve ever seen!!!!!!!!!!

I will not bowl here again. Saturday we went to bowl here and we paid for 2 games each for 3 people. The first game our scores were cleared out in the 5th frame. The second game our lane shut down in the 9th frame. The third game, we only paid for 2 each, we were allowed to bowl a complete game. The 4th game the lane shut down after 3 frames. I went to the counter several times and after all of it I was too frustrated to go back and we left!!
