This bowling center is one of the worst I’ve ever been to and I have had the opportunity to visit many across the country. The manager has Napoleon disorder and anger issues. He is unyielding, unfriendly and unable to take responsibility for the manner in which he treats special needs children and adults. The best thing that can happen to this bowling center would be to fire the management, bring in a PR staff and someone who actually understands what working with the public requires. He is NOT that person.

After getting to bowl at Carolina lanes I found out that the lanes had not been taking care of and they just cover them in oil to get by for the tourments. I would advise any that was thinking about bowling at this house if you are going for fun it would be a great place to go but if you are going for a tourment I would have to say the best thing is to past it up.

This is one of the nicest looking bowling centers around. That is the only thing it has going for it. They have brought in some guy as the manager that has just made every employee there misserable. You talk to the employees and they hate working for this guy he even told them in a meeting that he had been diagnosed with a bad case of OCD and was the most *n*l person you would ever meet. From what I hear he does a pretty good job of living up to those words. Also if you look over at the AMF Gastonia website you will see how great of a job he did of running that place into the ground. I just hope he doesnt do the same here. It appears that he has run off every staff member that was there when he arrived and brought in a bunch of people that dont have a clue about bowling. I have been bowling at this center since the day it opened if they dont bring in another manager or if this guy doesnt straighten up I will be headed to park next year. Oh yeah AMF way to go you now have a guy that ran one of your small centers into the ground running one of your biggest centers great move.

We would like to let everybody know that AMF can be a nice league. The assistant manager Gavin, who has been there for so many years is the reason we continue to come back. On several occasions over the years, he has helped my kids with the shoes and has gone out of his way to help them with the bowls and make them feel comfortable. We have had several parties over the years, and we have dealt with many other managers and assistant managers, but Gavin was the only one who took the time and was very polite and really wanted to make sure we had a great time. When we decide to have a party or a event we make sure that Gavin is going to be working so we can make sure everything runs smoothly and that we continue to have fun. This is just from past experience. Gavin from our family to you, we hope that your superviser knows what you are worth to the people that have bowled here over the years. Thank You for your hard work and dedication. Mary and Mike

I do not understand why they do not take care of their lanes like Park Lanes does. That just shows that they do not care about their league bowlers.

The assistant manager S*CKS and the new manager is no better.

They do not care about their league bowlers and employees. They only care about the bottom line and open play. I hope all the league bowlers whom have bowled there a long time realize after this year how AMF feels about them and they will take their business somewhere else. The managment at AMF Carolina Lanes is terrible and all I can say is watch your back.

I bowled there for the USBC tournament, and had a great time. Management and staff were very friendly, and their counter staff gave great directions after we had trouble getting there from the USBC maps. They made a lasting impression, I can even remember names of employees’ (Shane, Ryan, Sonete, Christopher) I would refer ANYONE to go there. Their food was amazing and I hope to go back again if I’m ever in town.

Best customer service I’ve ever had from a front counter person. Food and drinks were great, I got my money’s worth.

Last time I was there, I went to the extreme zone, although the wait was long, the three guys behind the counter were very friendly, one guy had extreme hair style with spike, it was a great experience with great customer service. The food was delicious and my kids wanted to keep coming back.

Nice bowling center. Last time I bowled there they hadn’t oiled the lanes in almost 2 days.
