I wish that the PBA would stop back. This bowling center is great and the people who work at the proshop are very nice.

I just wanted to say that the Friday night DJ here is AWESOME! Karaoke and music has been great, but the guy is super fun. He talks to people and offers to make people night fun. As long as he’s here We will all be up.

Can anyone tell me what happened with teh other manager Dave? He was such a great guy and was very well liked by everyone. Dave always made an appearance and was always around to greet his customers. The place just isnt the same anymore.

My husband and I have become quite involved in the ‘Riviera’ bowling community. 2 1/2 years ago, we were invited to join some friends there for a little recreational bowling. Since that initial visit, and being bit by the ‘bowling bug,’ if are not there for leagues, we’re there to practice. We attended last years PBA Championships held there, bowled in the Pro-Am, and have already secured our tickets for this year. For the record, we enjoy the ‘Riv,’very much, and as residents of Fairlawn we would like to continue our patronage at this facility. That being said, some comments and concerns have been discussed among our bowling friends and acquaintances, that we feel strongly enough about to mention to those with the authority to change. I’m a parent of 4 ’20 somethings’ so I am definitely hip enough to appreciate youngsters having a (safe) place to hang on Fri. and Sat. nites. We are often there ourselves, but we try to wrap up before ‘lunar bowling’ begins. It’s a pretty good concept for young people who’s eyesite is 20/20, and who are not yet prone to migraines from really loud music. As with any public facility, one must take the good with the bad, which brings me to my point (finally). There is a very unsavory element that is taking over on Fri. and Sat. eve’s. They come in early, and take up residence at tables that belong to leagues/open bowlers and just hang out until ‘Lunar bowling’ begins. When the lights are shut off, and the music (mostly rap) is cranked to 10, it seems condusive to really bad behavior.
The police have had to be called on many recent ocassions to break up fights etc. etc. Part of the problem is probably the fact that the neighborhood directly behind the ‘Riv’ has been recently slated as subsidized housing, and is in walking distance. I was there last evening when the cops had to be called to step in yet again. Here’s just a thought for your consideration; I believe that this situation can be deterred quickly and safely by the presence of a ‘Rent-A-Cop’ for said nites. Sorry for taking so long to get to the point of my letter, but I thought it important enough an issue, to give you a complete picture of what we all see as a potentially serious problem.
Respectfully, Chrissy

Good lanes, and good, fast help when needed. The extreme bowling at night is also a lot of fun. However, they could use some more bowling balls, and the food is very expensive. Overall though, it is very good, and I highly recommend it.
