I Would Just Like To Say That We Visited Funtime Last Night And Had A Great Time. The Atmosphere Was Fun The Patron’s Were Very Friendly.I Felt Like We Were Among Friends But It Was Our First Time There. It Was Very Clean Which Is More Than I Can Say For Our Local Bowling Alley.The Food Was Very Good And The Owners Were Very Nice And Friendly. I Can Assure You That We Will Be Spending Our Bowling Nights At FunTime Bowl In Lewisburg!

I just want everyone to know that my sister and brother in law and my husband and myself went to the funtime bowling center late night to see how it was to try and find a great place to go bowling and this is the best place we have found. The people were very friendly and the food was great. This is the best place we have found and we will be going back there on a regular basis. I really don’t know what all the people were talking about in these comments but you never know until you check for yourself like we did. THIS PLACE IS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would just like to say that I am surprised at the attitudes of some of you people. I live in another state and visited family in Lewisburg and had the pleasue of visiting funtime bowl on a couple of occasions. I had a great time, the owners were wonderful, never have I been into a bowling alley or anyother bussiness for that matter and been greated as if I am one of the family. The Turners were wonderful the environment was cheerful and very clean. I think you guys should be grateful for what you have and show respect for the local owners who have invested in the future of Lewisburg and its community. The Turners strive to make funtime bowl a place where families can come and spend time together. I especially like it that even on weekends the bowling alley is not used as a hang out for roudy kids and gangs. You cant find many places like that, where you can go relax and have fun. I know the Turners have made many changes in the short time they have been there and as business improves im sure they will make more.

Honestly, people? You guys are SERIOUSLY going to argue about this? If you don’t like the place, don’t go, and don’t disrespect people you know nothing about. I happened to enjoy the time I spent there in “Loserburg”, but maybe I’m just biased. Anyway, whoever runs the place now, good job and good luck on keeping the business going.

I’m talking to whoever Former Atlanta Bowler is, you don’t known anyone thing about Bruce and Elle. Now that they own two bowling alley are making tons of money, if you only see the kind of car their daughter got for her 16th b-day!! Their bowling allays are great, yall keep saying how they kept Loserburgs clean so do you really think the ones in ATL would be nasty!? They NEVER gave up on Lewisburg Lanes i know for a fact they just left so that their daughter could get more out of life, think of it this way if you could wouldn’t you leave all yours friends and family so that you could have more!!!!!

Who runs this place now is it the Turners or the people I see there most of the time? This place is super boring I agree they just put music on that they want to hear heck its the internet jukebox and still you cant get songs except country blows my mind!!! I think they need to get the right people running it!

Comment Date: 10/30/2008 Name: Mom
You people sure need to keep your noses out of peoples business! Rumors are the ruin of everything so unless you have the facts of what has happened to Lewisburg Lanes and the young man and his mom then maybe you should ask them instead of spreading stories you know nothing about. I wish the new owners the best of luck with Funtime Bowl!

Comment Date: 10/30/2008 Name: The Allen Guys
I am happy that the bowling alley is still in Lewisburg, i just wish that the young guy was still there. When he was there ther was always alot of people which made it fun. Now there is hardly anybody there on the weekends and the place is SUPER BORING! We stayed for a few minutes but it was like you could hear crickets singing in the back so we left. That bowling alley from what i heard was randys dream but not everybody can have a business. its especially hard when you live in such a small town with hardly any customers. im sure we will see it shut down again.

Comment Date: 10/15/2008 Name: Upset
I had my family in there and was told that I could not bowl because of a tourney. The whole place was empty on saturday except for a few lanes running. We left unhappy and drove by a few hours later and the parking lot was empty guess they did not want our business.

Comment Date: 8/4/2008 Name: Former Atlanta Bowler
Bruce and Ellen now own two centers in the ATL and they both s*ck. They need to learn how to run a bowling center. AMF has a better track record.

Comment Date: 7/21/2008 Name: Beer Drinking League ???
Who are you talking about Chris and Leah or Bruce and Ellen. I love Lewisburg Lanes I was practiclly raised there. I hope the place continue to do well. Who knows what the future holds all I know is that for now we are in great hands. Please if you feel differently commect on so!!!!!!

Comment Date: 7/16/2008 Name: Beer League Bowler
I am giving them time but I have my own opinion. I know both families and in my opinion they should team up together and really make the place great.In no way was I downing the new owners just saying I miss the old crew.

Comment Date: 7/12/2008 Name: lburgcitizen
Give this bowling alley a chance under new management. Beer League Bowler, you must be one of those who is afraid of change….You must be a fan of the current administration in Washington, eh? Again, these things take time, when you were born, you weren’t able to get up and run all over the place (so I surmise). God didn’t create all things relevant to this world in one day; it’s not an instantaneous thing.

Comment Date: 7/10/2008 Name: Beer League Bowler
Can somebody please tell me if the old crew is coming back for the fall? I could tell the difference after they left it just wasnt the same I was glad that the season was almost over.

Comment Date: 7/1/2008 Name: C*** Diesel
Didn’t know the old owners, sounds like they were ok people, but I do know the new owners and I know that they are great wonderful people. As with any new business owner they will have to learn this new business. I fill we should all stand behind them and support them through these trying times. I think they keep the bowling alley in great condtion. When my family is there they seem to be always busy. We usually have to wait for lanes. Tucky as I know him is a great friend, he is always there to help anyone with any of their needs. He is a great family man and always puts the needs of his family first. Love you like a fat kid loves cake!!!!!!!That is a lot lot lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk is cheap actions speak louder than words. Let’s jump on board and help the Turner’s have a successful business. We all need to support our local businesses.

I would like to say that I think the new owners are doing a great job. They make you feel like family when you walk in the place. The Turner woman (sorry dont know her name) has the most experience in the place with the snack bar. She worked there for a few years that I know of. I belive the food is good for a place like the bowling alley and the prices are reasonable. Her husband and son’s didn’t know anything about the place. They have done an excellent job learning the rope’s. Bruce and Ellen had the place for several years and it was family run business. The Turners are trying to do the same. Lets dont forget Chris and the crew for turning the place around and making it fun again. (Job well done) I just hope people will show them the respect that they showed Bruce,Ellen,Chris,Leah,Dawn, and etc. Hopefully the Turners will have many great years as the new owners and keep the place the same and not change nothing. Please dont be hateing on the new owners.
P.S. The other son who worked at the front desk was funny,hilarious,and crazy as hell. Where is he at? He needs to come back! Best wishes to the Turners.

Alex knows more, indeed. The owners are learning…. Learning a new trade isn’t that easy. He does a little bit, but not Everything, not even near everything. I know, I’ve seen it.

Comment Date: 6/24/2008 Name: Newbee ???
They dont have it back to like it was. Food is awful and hardly nobody goes down there. When Chris and them ran the place is when it was the best. Bruce and Ellen ran it good til they just didnt care about the place.

Comment Date: 6/24/2008 Name: Curious
It looks like that young man Alex is running the place instead of the Turners.Hope it doesnt do like it did with the other young man running it.

Comment Date: 6/18/2008 Name: Newbee
Chris and Leah did a wonderful job running the bowling alley. What I heard was that the Gardners gave them a chance to buy it but the Turners got to it first. with alot of help from Bruce and Ellen they have gotten it back on its feet. I hope people won’t judge them just because they think they took it frim the Fagans. I hope they have alot of success but in the back of my mind i still with Bruce, Ellem, and Kayla Gardner return someday to take it back over. It just isn’t the same without them!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment Date: 4/28/2008 Name: Chris & Leah
There have been lots of rumors going around and we want to get everything straight. We are not angry or upset with Kim and Kentucky…we wish them the best and hope they do great!! They are good people and we want them to succeed. And if they ever need us, we’re there for them.

Comment Date: 4/24/2008 Name: Mike
I noticed that all their cars have been at the alley last few days. I hope they are coming back it has not been the same since they left.

Comment Date: 3/5/2008 Name: LoveToBowl
I can’t believe Chris & Leah are gone!!! No offense to the new owners, but the Fagans LOVED that place! Chris was constantly helping people with their bowling and promoted like no one ever has…it’s not going to be the same. The place was ALWAYS clean…even the bathrooms…and the snackbar was AWESOME! I hope the new owners have 1/4 the passion that Chris has about bowling!!!

Comment Date: 3/2/2008 Name: Cosmic Bowler
Yeah I cant believe the Gardners did this after that place was booming again they ruined a good thing!!!! My hats off to Chris and Leah you will deeply be missed.I agree with the last comment too the food was awesome Dawn needs to open a food place lol.So if you guys go to another bowling alley I will be there heck open one up in Lincoln County!!

Comment Date: 2/28/2008 Name: T’money
I found out that they sold the bowling alley to someone else I am in shock. I feel so bad for Chris and Leah they really made sure everyone had a great time. Chris was always promoting bowling and helping others out including me. Place was always clean and the food was awesome.

For All Of You Haters – Randy Is My Boyfried Whom I Love And Cherish. He Has Done Alot For That Bowling Alley. The BA Didnt “Go Down” – It Got Sold Back To The Previous Owners Due To The Lack Of Cooperation From Leagues And Bowlers In General. And For Those Of You Who Want To Talk About People That You Dont Know – Randy Is A Good Person As Well As His Family. Get Your Information Straight Before You Run Your Mouth .. Which ALSO Is One Of The Reasons Why He Chose To Get Rid Of The Bowling Alley. We Wish “Funtime Bowl” Success And Wish Nothing Bad Upon Them Or Their Business.

Very nice neighborhood bowling ally. Not too many around run by local owners. My husband & I are first time league bowlers here and we like it. The staff is friendly and helpful,place is clean, small eatery has decent food. A nice family friendly place to have fun.

Comment Date: 10/19/2007 Name: youth
Ever since Randy took the place over 3 years ago it get under FAST. No one knew how bad his bill was and trust me he wasn’t paying anything. I heard that his mother was paying and now is in serious debt, and guess what it is all RANDY’s fault. he was such a cute, young guy that had a good future but lost everything. Thank god the Gardners are back maybe they can get the place back on track.

Comment Date: 10/17/2007 Name: Lady Bowler
I am so glad to see that {deleted} kid gone!!!!! The husband and wife team have made this one great place again. The center is clean the lanes are kept like they are supposed to be. They are friendly and the food is better than most eating places.

Bruce and Ellen own the place again but live in Atlanta. They have a great guy running it for them and the place is very clean. They have redone the lanes and are putting new scoring in on the 16th of October. The name is now Funtime Bowl its a great family place.

Comment Date: 7/27/2007 Name: New Girl
I HATE the owner, he is a self seving, nobody that ain’t even take care of the bowling center that he saids he loves. After Bruce and Ellen Gardner left it has went under thanks to one man RANDY, the guy that can’t even pay the bills, but instead has his mother to do it for him. Can you say momma’s boy!!!!!!

Lewisburg Lanes s*cks …it needs to fall off the face of the earth…

Comment Date: 4/2/2005 Name: D***F*****
To the comment from Chris in 2004. Lewisburg Lanes has 12 lanes not 8. You must have been drunk or just plain stupid. For Art Vandelay (Seinfeld Junkie) I would like for you to come back some day and give it another chance and then give your comment in person rather than putting it up on a website.

Comment Date: 4/1/2005 Name: Randy
I’m the owner and first of all I do not smoke so I’m sorry Art(sorry that is not your name but whoever you are I’m truly sorry you feel that way) but that was someone else and second of all this center is in good shape we have 82 70 s with mp chassis and good scoring; our machines we have been updated to the fullest so in other words you don’t know what you’re talking about so I’m sorry.

Comment Date: 2/25/2005 Name: Art Vandelay
Lewisburg Lanes is ok for this small of a town but compared to a lot of other bowling alleys it is pretty crappy. And the service is awful! The guy who owns it always has a cigarette in his fingers and just sits around laughing at the crappy bowlers like me but this is the best we can come up with here. I mean, look at the city we are talking about!

Comment Date: 11/19/2004 Name: Chris
Lewisburg Lanes s*cks, they are out of date. Only contain 8 lanes and smells bad. I recommend Mifflinburg Lanes. They also have a poor selection of shoes. Service s*cks and limited selection of house balls.
