Lido Lanes is a family-friendly bowling center offering a safe, clean environment for bowlers of all ages and skill levels. Each of the 16 waxen alleys sports a seating area, slimming lighting for weight-conscious bowling balls, and an automatic scoring system that spares bowlers the hassle of learning the game's complex scoring algorithms and theorems (such as Fermat's Last Frame). Along with stylish shoes, the spoils of your tribe's lane domination treat you to one tantalizing appetizer from Lido Lanes' bar and grill. Onion rings (a $3.40 value) provide circular sustenance, and deluxe nachos (a $4.90 value) roll in on spinning rims to satisfy the barbarian hunger generated by your three brawny ball battles. To accompany its guttural symphony of shattered strikes and exploding turkeys, Lido Lanes invites live bands, such as Chicago blues bands, country signers, and Irish bands, to rock out on the lanes during Rock N Bowl night.
Bowlero Lanes opened its doors in 1958. Since then, thanks to a few renovations, the bowling alley is still going strong. In addition to 32 bowling lanes, the alley has an arcade, pool tables, and a full-service bar and lounge that recently received new flatscreen TVs. The array of activities makes Bowlero Lanes a popular destination for events such as birthday parties, fundraisers, and fantasy bowling drafts.
The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 10 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
Wood-paneled walls and traditional pub décor surround diners and dart tossers in the dining areas of both Ford Lanes and Bel-Mark Lanes. The classic facilities host an array of gleaming, professional lanes that boast automatic scoring and are perfect for a night of cosmic bowling or chucking an ex-girlfriend’s snow-globe collection. Both alleys maintain open hours for groups and practicing individuals, and they also offer leagues for adults, seniors, and children. Each weekend, the pin-crushing arenas host karaoke contests, welcoming the musical talent of community members.
Established in 1959, Chelsea Lanes combines old-school charms with the modern convenience of smooth, polished lanes and automatic scoring. The lanes, which remain open until midnight on Friday and Saturday, also play host to leagues, birthday parties, and glow-bowling sessions, during which music videos and light shows cause the alley to sparkle like a disco ball at a paparazzi dance party.
Interstate Lanes complements its 40 bowling lanes with several classic avenues of entertainment, from the video arcade's flashing lights to the lounge equipped with billiard tables. As bowlers attempt to topple sets of pins, automatic scoring systems keep track of their feats, and bumpers prevent balls from triggering gutters' traumatic memories of serving in a giant mousetrap. Beyond open-bowling hours, the alley hosts competitive leagues for men, women, and children, and an onsite kitchen fires up bites such as chicken wings, specialty burgers, and freshly baked pizzas.
