I have been going to modern lanes for about a yr or so, at first is was awesome. But lately when we go the guy at the front desk is just down right rude. He has rules for the everyday customer and a different set for his friends. Come on modern lanes there should only be ONE SET OF RULES! Need to retrain your guy at front desk or teach him some manners..

Although I haven’t bowled at Modern Lanes in years because of the rude and unprofessionalism of the staff, I gave it a try yesterday to test a new bowling ball. I went there because it’s close to home. Called around 3pm yesterday to inquire about open bowling (since the web site no longer exists). Was told that there was league bowling on all 16 lanes at 6pm, so as long as it’s before that…no problem. Leave work, go directly to Modern Lanes, get there at 5:20pm, manager tells me there’s no open bowling because of that evening’s league. He even admitted speaking to me on the phone earlier. No apology…just an “oh well”. Also tells person with me that “…we have a PBA-style pattern on the lanes, so you wouldn’t want to attempt to bowl on that anyway.” Granted, I’m not a member of the PBA, but neither is nearly everyone that lives around here. Rude, obnoxious manager totally full of himself. Sorry, there’s enough other bowling alleys in NEPA that actually give a crap about their potential customers.

i bowled there a few times. for a little old place it’s ok. wouldn’t go out of my way to go there b/c the workers were a little not interested in helping us but mostly it was just ok.

jonathan sperlazzo passed away last weekend in an auto accident-considering what a huge part of his life modern lanes was and the volunteering he provided at the lanes over the years- i feel it would be very kind of the bowling lanes to sponsor a bowling tournament in his name to help his family with expenses

I’ve been bowling there since i was 6.It is a wonderful place i would never leave there. I luv Mark he i the most awesomest guy ever.He is the best coach ever and i have to give him credit.There food is the best, there prices are not high. But i will never leave MODERN LANES enless it burnt down which it never will.

Well just to say a little something…Uhm Catherine can you please not do that anymore?! It’s kinda weird and stalkerish..
As I’ve said before, this place is great, it honestly keeps getting better and better. I mean the employees are great. Mark and Noelle are awesome people, and they keep the place looking and running great. They have evening leagues every evening, and the Junior Leagues they have on Saturdays are run by some of the coolest people you’ll probably ever meet. I mean c’mon Thaddeus?! Lol. The food is definitely great, and the lanes are awesome, it’s much better than Shadowbrook or one of those other places that mad lanes XD
Uhm but all in all, this is one of the better houses to go, and I definitely recommend it to family’s who just wanna have fun before or after dinner. Or whenever they wanna go, lol.
But I guess you just have to find out for yourself how epicly insanely awesome this place is XD
So do it! Unless you’re afraid to be dazzled.

I been to many bowling alleys and i have to say by far modern lanes is the best… Chacko’s Food is Crap… to little for to much … Also there workers are rude… Stanton lanes there lanes just s*ck period. at modern you get what u pay for… Mark is a great guy and 99 percent of their staff are the amazing they are down to earth… you get some of these people that talk poorly on modern lanes staff ” i have seen this now” because they are complete jacka**es that think they could do anything and not get in trouble.. Mark and noelle the owners are great people joe hes a {deleted} but hes ok when he wants to be… he doesnt work with the customers so i guess its ok that he is a {deleted}. bar staff beck jen noelle are great people. Derrick the guy at that desk is a kool guy and is there like every day so ur bound to see him. so as long as your a respectable person this place is for you… also the prices are great as well.. i got to go so i have no time for spell check or to fix my sentences.. so the next person can make fun of me all they want

When is cosmic bowling?

Place is small and old fashioned. If you are into trying out different bowling centers then this is a place to stop. Closed most of the time and sometimes looks closed when I later found out they were open. Overall… eh…

well theres just many great things about this place
number one the awesome employees there
they are always willing too help you out with bowling, or if you need a new bowling ball or anything, Mark Mancini is almost always there, and will help with any of your bowling equipment needs.
the prices arent bad either
the lanes are fairly new
they are synthetic
you get great ball reaction on these lanes, i bowled countless amazing games here
im bowling in 2 leagues this year, on thursdays and on saturdays, and i wish i could bowl here more, because i just love this place.
there are many great great bowlers here
im just getting really good this year
my averages on 185 and 193 at current, but most are better than me lmao
ive made many good friends from this place
it’s under amazing management as well
the friday and saturday night rock’n bowling is great too, awesome music and lighting
it has powered scoring systems as well, like most places of course have.
but all in all
this place is probably the best bowling alley ive ever went to and bowled at
please if you are in the area
come and bowl here
u wont regret it

I would like to say that I agree with John Tomsak. this is a great bowling alley and run by very nice people. I feel very comfortable leaving my kids here to bowl; the kid’s leagues are run by two wonderful individuals, Thaddeus and Sharon, with honesty, fairness, and fun. I would definately suggest bowling at modern lanes

Comment Date: 2/14/2008 Name: john tomsak
yea this place is really awesome
the people that work here are pretty awesome too
they’re really friendly..
and some of them coach the several junior league divisions..
and some of them are really great bowlers too..
i bowl here every saturday afternoon
and i have a pretty good average…currently 172..
and i have gotten some great help and encouragement from some of the employees
it would definitely be worth it to come check out this place
come and bowl here
the people are always really friendly..
and its under great management…
so it would be in you best interests to come and bowl here one of these times..
i know what i said back in my previous comment which i posted last year wasnt all that fun to read..
and i did say some pretty dumb things…
but this bowling alley is worth it
come and bowl…
you wont regret it

I bowled there on a sat.night mixed league and it was awesome.I miss bowling there and miss some of the people I bowled with on my team as well as others.Being a beginner at bowling I had some great help from owner George as well as Mark mancini from the pro shop.I am bowling here in virginia beach where I now live and have to say it takes time to adjust from where you came from.I plan on coming back home to visit over the next month or so and plan on stopping in to see George and some of the great bowlers that bowl there.I keep trying to remember all the tips you given me to help my game,but my average only hit 155 and I’m stuck there,but I’m having fun.If anyone likes to bowl and is in that area,stop by and get involved on a team or just bowl,you will be glad you did.

As the young man on April 21st stated, this is a great bowling alley geared toward not only meeting the needs of the older patrons, but creating an atomosphere condusive for the younger ones and those learning to bowl! George is a great guy! and the youth bowling league is well run, well organized and fun. I do believe that the young man on April 21 could have used cleaner language in leaving a written comment where other could read it

the food is too expensive. The workers are very rude. The manager is expecially rude.

I must say the food is outstanding but the employees and this one bowler are extremely rude and ignorant. I mean I am just trying to bowl and this kid yells across the whole building at me. That’s all I got to say about that!
