BeaverVu Bowl Comments
Comment Date: 1/20/2011 Name: joe mumford
ive bowled here for years and ive come to this conclusion….if they try to make lanes 1 to 24 oiley they will be spotty . but lanes 41 to 64 (the original 24 lanes)will allways be consistant the last 40 lanes work better on a drier condition.

Comment Date: 1/17/2011 Name: Dave
I’ve bowled here for several years and have found the staff friendly and courteous. Several schools (High school and college) bowl there and the lanes are dressed prior to the match. I been to some other houses and watched open bowling on the match lanes just before the match. A lot of people bowl at BeaverVu (they host a number of special events during the year) and the participants seem satisfied with the house.

Wsmadog, people like you are the very reason bowling centers don’t like to do coupons anymore.

Comment Date: 5/27/2008 Name: Anonymous
The fat guys at the counter are ignorant and lazy.
The lanes are ok, this is an annoying place to bowl at just go to Capri its way better.

Comment Date: 2/28/2008 Name: Doug is a nice guy
Doug is a nice guy and supports the WSU bowling team. When I was on the team, we were able to practice at Beaver-Vu twice a week free of charge.

i bowl in a legue at beaver vu and they are very nice people. the service is awesome. as far as the lane conditoin goes that couldent get any better. thas is a good bowling alley over all

Comment Date: 5/14/2007 Name: wmasdog
BAD SERVICE!!! I just went to beaver-vu in beavercreek and met up with my brother to bowl a few games and never made it past the front desk person.We had banquet coupons for free game and they expire on 5/31/07 and I ask the fat guys at the desk if we could use two per me and my brother. He said no that we couldn’t because it says one game per person, percoupon, per day and I had a hard time understanding because there was nobody else bowling and we just drove from kettering and gas aint cheap and I want to spend alittle time with my brother, not just one game and leave.I ask why can’t we just use two coupons each because they expire at the end of the month. He replied “it’s my job to enforce the policies and if you don’t like it you can leave. I said “well is there any other policies that I need to be aware of that I may break”. He then begain to denie our service as a customer and said we couldn’t bowl and started to stare at me in a threatening maner and I said so know your going to stare at me. I agreed to just use one coupon for one game and he kept being rude. By now I’m pissed off and saying that he is descriminating our services as customer and now my right to free speech. I told him I will be putting a lawsuit against him(beaver-vu). He began yelling at me saying you want my name, I’ll give you my full name.Isaid no as Ileaving because I didn’t need this abuse anymore and nothing was getting accomplished and I said no I don’t need your name I will just call you fat guy and he yelled back at me your the fat guy.I left and my brother was so disturbed he was already pulling out of the parking lot.

This is by far the best bowling alley I’ve ever been to. As to the comment above, Beaver-Vu has now banned smoking at any time in there bowling alley. Also, the owner, Doug Wilson, is probably the nicest person you will ever meet. Support a great alley, go to Beaver-Vu!

Comment Date: 1/27/2006 Name: Anonymous
I have bowled at Beaver Vu for about 30 years. The league I bowl in now has several smokers and all our team asked is that we have the fans turned on. These smokers insist the fans be turned off because they are cold. They can wear heavier clothing but we can’t stop the smoke from being in our faces. We have talked to management about this and they side with the smokers. Every time we have the fans turned on, they are turned right back off. This is ridiculous. All of us pay the same amount to bowl and it doesn’t seem fair that we have to have the smoke in our faces when all it takes is turning the fans on. Next year, we will be finding another bowling facility since this one does not care about the health or feelings about their league members.

Camelot Lanes Comments
Comment Date: 12/28/2011 Name: mahager
I do not recommend using their after school program. Little adult supervision! Allows children to run around unsupervised which caused another child to run into my son who was about to bowl. Broke his front tooth and has created a lot of dental bills. All they said was sorry and that they’d look into it, not surprised that there has been no follow-up since!

Comment Date: 5/25/2010 Name: Board Man
The most expensive place to bowl in the Mahoning Valley.
Owners could care less about league bowlers.
If glow in the dark bowling is your game this is the place.
Once when I tried to get in the doors were locked. I doubt if the fire chief would approve.
Spent a fortune to upgrade the center but very little on the lanes and equipment.

Comment Date: 11/30/2009 Name: Anonymous
Went to Camelot Sunday night to bowl. What a great surprise, in the bar they had what they call “open jam session” what wonderful bands, the music was great and we stayed the whole night
had a great time, We will be back with more friends thanks Camelot for a wonderful Sunday night

Comment Date: 3/26/2009 Name: Sara
Just got an email about Camelot’s “Kids Bowl Free” program. They’re giving my kids 2 free games of bowling every day from now till Labor Day. Join their email club and you can get free bowling too.

Comment Date: 11/23/2008 Name: khadigeh
i have been twice with my children and the staff and everyone was so nice to me and my children we love going there and it has a good price for the two hours and pizza and pop so i love it and my children love it . i will recommand it to any one how asks me about the place i give it 5 stars thats my opion

Comment Date: 8/18/2008 Name: Anonymous
Went to Camelot Lanes during the daytime, had a childrens function going on and a bunch of seniors citizens bowling, The staff was very helpful and put my family on the lanes, and even helped the kids find a bowling balls, that never happened at bowling centers we visited before, our food was brought to our lanes and this was such a wonder experience for us. We will be back.

Comment Date: 8/16/2008 Name: Anonymous
TOO pricey compared to other houses and the lanes are terrible, did you ever hear of oil. We will not return, Amron in Canfield is much better

Comment Date: 8/16/2008 Name: shire986
I don’t understand all the negativity, either. Maybe the service problems were people that don’t work there anymore, but I’ve been going there a lot lately and have been having a blast. The staff is super helpful and nice,the prices are reasonable,the bar is great, and even has a Wii! Not to mention the snack bar has all kinds of great stuff, including canfield fair style french fries; mmmm. I’d give it a 10/10

Comment Date: 1/15/2008 Name: Jen
I love going and have never been disrespected at all. I bring my kids at least once a week and they love it. Where else can you go and only spend $40.00 for two hours of bowling, shoes, Pizza and pop? I have had problems with the ball return but If you ask and be respectful they are more then happy to set your time back. I sometimes ask for another hour after our time is up and they charge only $5.00. I find that bowling there is less money than taking my kids to the movies and more fun.

Comment Date: 7/17/2007 Name: george
I don’t understand all the negative comments. This place has been voted Best of the Best for many years in the local newspaper.We go to the Hip party every Monday night and have a great time. the dj is ffiendly and plays our requests.The prices are a little high, but its the only place in town that has spent any money on renovations, and at $6 per person for all you can bowl from 10 pm to 2 am including shoes it’s a good deal

Comment Date: 2/12/2007 Name: Anon
I used to bowl in leagues at Camelot. One day the owners decided that open play customers were more important than their leagues customers. They offer open play way many more offers than they do to their leagues. I feel bad for the employees who work there with those owners. All they care about is making more money to support their million dollar expense vacations to Martha’s Vineyard. They could care less about anybody but themselves.

Comment Date: 3/15/2006 Name: Anonymous
My friends and I have been heading out to Camelot Lanes roughly 2 times a week the past few months, and are in no way impressed. Many times we’ll go for their all you can bowl sessions and it seems the time turns off on the lanes before the scheduled closing time. Not to mention the ball return is quite slow to go along with the slow rack time. A few employees are definately not destined to win any friendliness awards. If there were somewhere else to add the convienence and bowling session times I wouldn’t return to the castle at camelot.

Comment Date: 2/17/2006 Name: New to the area
My husband and I as well as our friends also had problems with the staff. They were extremely rude and unpleasant. It put a huge damper on our Birthday celebration. We will travel out of our way before we go there again. The scores kept displaying incorrectly as well.

Comment Date: 8/15/2005 Name: None
Camelot Lanes is a great place to go although the owners are quite arrogant. I think that the two managers Sarah and Kay keep the place running. They work hard everyday.

Comment Date: 7/23/2005 Name: none
O.k. place but P.P.is a little arrogant. Not very friendly lady and they never have any business.

Comment Date: 5/22/2005 Name: Nico
I Love To Bowl At Your Lanes But The Price!

Comment Date: 3/9/2004 Name: Unhappy Customer
I went to Camelot Lanes and the employees there were quite rude and unpleasant. My friends and I always go to Camelot Lanes, and never have we had a problem up until now. We usually spent up to 100 dollars each time we went, however I’m afraid Camelot will never have the chance to redeem itself in my eyes again. Not only were the employees rude and unpleasant but I pledged never again will I go to this bowling center. For those that plan to visit this “fun” place, watch out for the tall, plump, long haired blonde lady, and the lady with the big brown fuzzy hair. Those are the culprits!

Comment Date: 3/7/2004 Name: Mike
Since Camelot lanes has been remodeled and now features a very cozy bar with video games, this is a hip place for anybody who enjoys bowling and having a beer while the kids are off playing video games or shooting pool.

It appeared to be a nice place to take the family however, on several occasions over a few different weekends I witnessed the employees drinking on the clock. One weekend in particular the gentleman working the desk & the man cleaning tables (the porter I think) were staggering around completely intoxicated. My family hasn’t returned to that establishment.

Bowl at own risk(see comments below). I bowl in a league here as well and have scheduled birthday parties here too.

Comment Date: 12/9/2010 Name: Karen
I bowl in a league at Gahanna lanes and it is very nice except for the ball returns. I have a lot of dings and scratches in my ball after bowling on the league. They need to invest a little and replace the ball returns.

Comment Date: 12/1/2010 Name: avid bowler
worst place ever…. the lady at the counter is sooo rude

Comment Date: 4/2/2010 Name: Seth
In response to comment dated 01/27/10, the management will terminate some employees for being “rude”, but not others. It depends if they are part of the click or not.

Comment Date: 1/27/2010 Name: Lucy
The long haired lady at the snack bar needs to take a “How to not be rude to customers” class.

Comment Date: 10/3/2009 Name: Erik
Yes, Gahanna Lanes has done some big changes and renovations, but that is negated by the fact that a lot of the staff is teenagers/early twenties who don’t have much or any customer service experience. The ownership/management has a lot to be desired. The really good employees that used to work there are now gone.

Comment Date: 6/23/2009 Name: Chelsea
Gahanna lanes is an amazing bowling center. They have made a lot of changes over the past year and it looks great! They have a new arcade, indoor glow in the dark putt putt, mini bowling, and a great staff. They are friendly and they make you feel at home. They have new furniture at each lane. Very nice couchs. The bar is fun. They have darts and good drinks. The snack bar has a lot of good food from pizza to wings and french fries and salad. Their birthday party packages are well priced and a load of fun. I totally recommend checking this place out! Its so much fun!

Comment Date: 11/3/2008 Name: Jeanette
Gahanna Lanes has done major renovations and the place inside looks amazing. They have just put in a really cool arcade and they are working on putting in more stuff in the near future. The Lanes are really nice and we will definitly keep coming back.

My son was recently invited to a cosmic bowling birthday party at Seven Hills Lanes. I have been to many smaller centers in the Cleveland area, but I must say I was impressed with this place. The party was fantastic. The staff was so friendly and the service was great. The place is very nice, and it is well kept. Thanks for making our experience a great one. We will be back this summer for our own son’s party!

I bowled at Seven Hills Lanes for a number of years on an “after work” league for TRW Replacement Parts Division. During the time that we bowled there, the lanes were sold and shortly there after, the TRW league broke up due to the closing of our plant. I rely enjoyed bowling at Seven Hills due in part to the great folks who owned and operated the lanes… I miss those days…

Seven Hills Lanes is a great place to bowl, the management and staff treat you like family and you really feel at home there. Thanks for making my bowling experiences at Seven Hills Lanes a pleasure.
