I just went to the Grand Opening of The Fast Lane!! It was great! It is completely remodeled and the place looks wonderful. Everything was very clean. My family had dinner there and we bowled. The kids loved the giant slide! We will definately come back..the prices were cheap

The alley has been through alot but thankfully the new owners are working hard to fix all the past problems! They know a lot about bowling (past college team members ..Ohio State and Kent State I hear), and they are out to please! The prices are lower and the rental shoes are free! I can tell that by the grand opening this place will be fresh and new!! I cant wait!! I just signed up for a league!

New owners are terrible, know nothing about bowling and its chaos in that place. Bowl somewhere else and save your time/money.

It definately isn’t was it was even 10 years ago. Too many centers shut down and the economy does not help. There are still a few tournaments around but no big money ones. Thanks for the comments Frank and hope you bowl well this season.

Its all good, thanks for the comments, just s*cks that bowling in Summit and Stark County isn’t what it used to be. I apologize for the comments and commend you for at least trying to turn this thing around.

I would like my customers not to put down other bowling alleys. Frank, when I took over I had 20 years of bowling experience but not much in bar business. I concentrate on my bowlers and hopefully with the updates and lanes being redone I can attract some good leagues and have some tourneys. By the way I like the name…must be a Jerry Stiller fan? Please stop in and talk to me…i’d love to show you some things.

No actually I bowl at Park Centre in Canton, Magic City may have got a few updates but it’s still Barberton, it’s image is ruined, no more tournaments no good leagues, it’s a bar with a bowling alley in it period!

Trashy as city it is in? First of all the place is clean and in no way trashy. Maybe you were at your mom’s house. The only time they ever close is once in a while on Mondays for maintenance. I’d bowl in the falls if Stonehedge wasn’t such a dump. Nice holes in the bathroom walls there. I like the tore up tile they have also. Considering the neighborhood I bet your $5,000 house is right up the street from TrashHedge.

We are working on new website. could not be obtained. I aplogize to you Frank Spooner. What was trashy? My new bathrooms? The 15 high def flat screens. The new kitchen equipment? The remodeled bar? The new carpet? The pleasant and friendly employees. Please feel free to call us anytime at 330-753-6910 to voice your complaints. We do occasionally close on Mondays for maintenance to assure that the place is clean and not trashy for our customers. Thank you for your comments.

Wow, this center is as trashy as the city it’s in, save your money and drive to the Falls to bowl.

How am I suppose to give a rating when I cant even get in. I go there after the time on the door says and it is still locked. I tried going to the website to check the times and the site wont even come up.

I have visited Magic City when in town for PBA events before My buddy Ralph bought it. Trust me guys,this place is so much better now. Take it from PDW when I say come see it today. You might even see my picture behind the desk.

This place did a complete 360 from what it was. I didn’t even recognize it when I walked in. Im not sure who the guy is who said it looked the same and for the record W.O.N.E. is there on Mondays. If you thought it looked the same than you obviously were never there. I met Ralph,the new owner and he was a really cool guy. I highly recomend checking it out if you have not been there lately.

I heard that this place is getting new lanes and a bumper system in May. I am looking forward to bowling on them, Magic city lanes is already my favorite alley this will just make it better

I was there Sat night when WONE was there, place looked the same, didnt see much difference. Lanes were dry as hell but we had fun.

Ralph is amazing, he knows how to run a business!

Do you still have to use the intercom to call to the mechanic if your pinsetter screws up? HA HA

I heard the this place was under new ownership so I made the trip over to check it out. What a difference, it doesn’t smell anymore. It’s very clean and has very friendly staff. You can tell they are happy working there. Has a nice banquet room and a big bar. It was a fun crown in the bar, had a blast. Nice job new owner !

Please come in and see all the new changes I have made since Taking over ownership. The restrooms have been remodeled. There is brand new carpet and the bowling area has all been redone. I have purchased a new lane oiling machine and have also put brand new Brunswick pins in all the lanes. There are flat screen Tv’s at every lane and 8 more in the bar. The bar has also been redone. The banquet room has a fresh coat of paint and has new carpet in it. You cancome in and play pingpong and cornhole any time you like. We also have a cornhole league starting on Monday nights. Sliders bar is the new name of the bar. It features the new looking “giant slide”. If you have not been in recently,please stop in and see the newly renovated Magic City Lanes. Thank you from Ralph DeGennaro. The new owner.

I stopped in to see what it looked like and I met the new owner. He showed me around and that place is awesome. The whole place has been remodeled and the banquet room has been redone also. They have inside cornhole and we played ping pong for about 3 hours. I had never been in before but it is truly one of the nicest bowling alleys I have ever been in. He even took the condom machines out. That was for the other comment someone made. The whole place was clean and smelled great.

I won a tourney there a few years ago and got a DUI on the way home by Doylestown PD. I told them I was a semi-pro bowler so they let me drive the rest of the way home. Also love the condom machine in the restroom, really classy touch!

The place is so dark. The lanes are not being taken care of like they used to when Rick was there. Seems like the only thing that they care about is the bar business. If you order from the snack bar, it sure takes a lot of time to get your stuff. Not against older people, but someone sure is SLOW! Bar help during the league was very good. She always remembers what you drink, even for an entire team.
