Was wondering if any of you frequent bowlers ever had a problem with bowling on lane #1 at Paradise? I’ve had a relative who got hurt accidently stepping off the edge and was wondering if this had happened to any of you?

This place s*cks. You’re balls will get trashed here. Their lanes are not maintained well at all

Great fun at the Paradise…all businesses in sporting and entertainment events with alcohol available ocasionally drop the ball but I think the Linn family has really put an effort in to curb that stuff.Very good family atmosphere now,I forgot how nice it is to slide on a real wood approach that has been well maintained..seniors are ya lookin for a bowler? I’m lookin for a team.

Mr. Anonymous. This message is nfor you. First of all Keith is an excellent ball driller. Hes has been drilling my stuff for the past couple of years. I have been to absolutely everybody the pacific northwest before visiting him. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. I know this because i investigate information myself. If u took him a ball to match he can easily do that with great skill. There is nobody else in Tacoma more qualified with better judgement than him. If he recommended a different pitch and you didnt like it he could have easily drilled you a new thumb hole at a different pitch. And im sure he would have done it no questions asked. Instead of running somewhere else you should have gone to talk to him. You may learn something. My game has improved 40 pins since hes helped me. I recommend everyone looking for a nice fitting piece of bowling equipment to visit Keith in the pro shop at Paradise.

I just move here about 6 months ago I enjoyed bowling at your center. Hopefully I will be able to continue bowling at your center more and more.

This message is for you Keith and I hope your manager will be able to read this one too. You as a pro shop operator you should not change somebody’s game you should just make a suggestions and listen to your customer, I’m not satisfied the way you drill the only ball that I got from your shop. I took a ball there so that you will be able to copy the pitch of my thumb but you change it totally I wasted my money coming at you r shop good thing that my coach introduce me to other pro shop operator and they fix the ball that you drill for me since then my average is where do I expect it in low 200, I do have a coach and she’s a silver level qualified going for her gold level.

First off Pro Shop owner Keith is AMAZING at drilling balls and customer service. Until he retires, no one else will be taking care of them.
Also the diner (though really expensive) has the best bacon cheeseburgers I have ever tasted.

they gave someone my shoe and made me sit there for 20 minutes before they finally told me they lost it, then i called them and they told me try again later and hung up on me.

I love bowling at Paradise but some of your front desk customer service are rude specially on the phone. And we put our name on a list to be called for a league meeeting no body called us back. I found out from a friend that the meeting is over.

My Family and Friends come all the time. Every Sunday. We all have a blast!!!!!

Comment Date: 4/13/2008 Name: Anonymous
Great family place but due to this it is ALWAYS over packed! I’m more for drunk bowling with friends than keeping the kids out till 1 AM. Bottom line this place is for kids. Oh and the food s*cks!

Fun place and all the kids loved it

I have been goin to paridise since I could lift the bowling balls and I stopped going as I got older. I have currently started going there with my best friend Shad (Beach) and he has made me miss the lanes! Soooo… CLEARLY I love Paridise and I thank you Shady B. for bringing back memories and making more for me!

good lanes, good food, crappy area. Avoid the tweekers,and absolutly leave nothing of value in he parking lot. This includes your car.

Paradise is an awesome bowling alley. I got there about three times a week to bowl and I love every moment of it. I plan on bowling here all the time!

Comment Date: 12/25/2004 Name: Curtis
Lanes are always oiled, and usually have heavy oil. Doesn’t concern some people, but makes it difficult for those without a ball that snaps. Environment is great, smoke-free is a big plus.

The bowling lanes are up and running over 90% of the time. Smoke free environment, which makes it a great place to take kids. I take a group of kids almost monthly and we love it. People are friendly and very helpful.

I have been bowling at Paradise for 12 years now and it is just the coolest bowling alley I have ever been to.
