A first class operation. I have bowled there many times and the place is always clean and the staff friendly. My first pick for bowling in the East Lansing area.

Brought the kids here one day on a lark. Never dreamed I’d have such a great experience. So much so I’m writing this! We were made to feel at home by all employee and owners. I’ve never felt this anywhere else. Sure they are working on the aesthetic of the place, but its going to be nice. That being said, I don’t care how good it looks, it’s the caring for the customer that impresses me. They bowl a perfect game in this catagory.

Marvel Lanes has a group of new owners. The same people that own and developed “city Limits” in Mason. I talked with some of the new owners and they want to upgrade the entire facility and make it a fun and safe place for everyone to enjoy. They seem interested in hearing what people have to say about Marvel lanes so they can make the needed corrections and improvements

It’s a great place… new owners or old owners. I have bowled there with people of other races, and I have not personally seen it. I would love for somebody to tell about an actual incident… rather than make a blanket statement. The fact that many bowling centers don’t have a large amount of black clientelle, doesn’t make it racist… it just means that there aren’t that many back people who go there! Wait staff is great. Try tipping. People there know me by name because I treat them with respect, order drinks, and tip better than everyone else there. Don’t order waters and expect prompt service, that’s rude!

Funny that eighty percent of the people on here saying they are “racist” can’t even spell the word correctly… ignorance is bliss, huh?

For people who were unhappy her, give it another chance. The owners are fairly new and they are beyond nice. We went when our normal place was closed unexpectedly one day. We were so happy that it is now our new go to place. Mi did not se anyone there’d get tested less than respectfully.

i have been to marvel lanes for years i have never seen the racist issue there and i myself am white but i have mixed friends and relatives we all go together and have never had an issue maybe they werent being racist maybe you were being wrong and they ignored you i have seen them do that plenty of times..but if you think they are racist dont go there anymore they have plenty of loyal customers that arent rude to them so they dont really need your money!

Pizza is good if you get it to go. You just have to overlook the rude waitresses that work there.

my friends and I found out that marvel lanes and unlimited bowling on monday nights from 10-1. 1.we went about 5 times and the last 2 times we went, we counldn’t get someone to help with our lanes because the people who work at the desk was dancing on it. 2. the music was way too loud that you can’t hear each other talk. 3. people 2 lanes over from us where halfway down the lane where the ball goes and throws it,bowled when the reset bar is down which could break it and we told the staff up front at the desk this is happening and they did nothing about it.
my friends and i currently bowl else where

I think it’s crazy how the people who are saying this place isn’t racist have typically white names. If you are white, here’s some news….they usually don’t act that way in front of you. You arn’t a different race and they don’t want to look bad in front of other people like them, then they might be outcast if you don’t agree. BTW, I am white, and I know this firsthand and not by isolated incidents. Many, many incidents have occured…………people should know this by now. Don’t be naive or ignorant any longer. Really analyze people.

We went there for the Halloween Party. The turnout wasn’t great but they made it a fun time for the people that were there. Two guys in our group were a gay couple and they seemed accepting.

This place is garbage. don’t bother getting any of their “prize coupons” because when you take it there, they half honor it. i had one i won from there, that says $9.95 bowling for two hours PER lane. well when i go there i wanted two lanes for a large group, they then tell me we would have to split to one hour each lane, even when the coupon says per lane. they always treat me like {deleted} and i am never going back, i hope the place burns down.

I been there a few times but I do agree with the racist part of it, i have experienced it first hand on those few visits.

I don’t feel that the people there are racist in any kind of way I’ve been going there for a long time and never ever had a problem and I’m a gay asian.
