Its shocking they closed after never putting a dime into the place for years and it was the dirtiest place. I’ve seen porta johns at the fair in better shape. Oh well they didn’t have any more leagues worth a crap anymore.

I heard from a reliable source that this place finally closed down. Any truth to the rumor??

There is a diff between new and pretty and old and dirty. Just because something is old doesnt mean it has to be dirty??? What an absolute tard, go down to Ghost Alley. It’s 50 years older than Great Oaks and it’s clean as can be

Great oaks lanes may be dirty but it isn’t as bad as all these other comments say and PDA between teens has never been a problem the lanes have never broken down during my visits and they just redid the lanes with professionals not teen staff.

Rather spend 3 hours in an outhouse at the fair then set foot in this dump!

Why do they let this place go to crap?? Wadsworth is a nice town and I would rather go in an outhouse than this place. Take your money down the road to Ghost Alley, it’s 100 yrs old and 100 times better center!

Great Oaks is fun every once and a while but can get boring easily. Everytime i go there there always seems to be something wrong with the lane. They shouldn’t allow the teens there to show so much pda either.

We haven’t been to this bowling alley in a couple years, this place has turned into a dump. The rental shoes are literally falling apart, most of the lanes had issues and repeatedly needed fixed by the teenage staff. The entire place was dirty and the bathrooms were worse than most gas stations. We will never return. A good place to go it you want to witness teens jumping on each others backs while trying to throw balls down the lane. No one following proper bowling etiquette.

I have to say Great Oaks Lanes is doing a O.k job when it comes to Thunder Alley and yes i do think some of the teenage workers are a bit rude but overall the lanes are good, the pizza is good, and the entertainment is good. They just have to hire some teens who are not rude.

The lanes always seem nice, but the staff was lousy last time I was there (fall 2008). They seemed to be inconvenienced by us as customers, and always acted like they were doing us a favor. I’ll be back this spring to check it out again, and I sincerely hope the attitude has improved.

It would be nice if the approaches would be cleaned, if the carpets were swept and if the seating by the lanes would be swept. This is the nasty i have ever seen this place. I grew up in this bowling alley and am very disappointed about the way that it is being kept. It would also be nice if they would fix the exhaust fan at the snack bar so that it doesn’t get smokey. My husband and I could not breathe very well while bowling on Saturday because it was so bad. If this continues I am afraid that you will losing customers. On different occasions people have said that they will not return because of how nasty it is. It would also be nice if the bathrooms would be cleaned better. It is really sad that it is this way. It could be very nice if a little money would be put into the lanes.
