Bowling in Bloomington

  • Channahon Lanes
    On Saturday nights at Channahon Lanes and Riverfront Lanes, the lights turn down and the music turns up as colored lights flash on the lanes. This weekly event is called Rock It Bowl and lends both bowling alleys the lively feel of a nightclub or the bedroom of a kid who's really afraid of the dark. Bumpers can be called into action on any lane, and even during the day, the clatter of pins is backdropped by music. Between frames, grownups can escape to the bar for a brew and kids can make their way to the video games in the arcade.

  • Centennial Lanes
    Balls hurtle toward clusters of pins at Centennial Lanes during open bowl sessions scheduled seven days a week. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, a black-light system and lasers illumine the award-winning center with a neon glow during cosmic bowl bouts scored to the thumping beats of music videos and songs requested by players. The in-house Little Bear's ProShop equips participants with necessary gear for forthcoming frames, such as new bowling balls or domesticated big bad wolves that will blow down still-standing pins. After games, visitors can retire to the banquet room for a birthday feast or saunter into the lounge for rounds of karaoke or billiards.

  • Haunted Trails Family Amusement
    Housing whiz-bang activities sprung to life from the mind of owner and game designer J. Richard Oltmann, Enchanted Castle coaxes thrills from the young and young at heart. As bumper cars clunk together and a game room rings with the peal of 250 pay-as-you-play games, Enchanted Castle’s 60,000 square-foot space fills with scenes fit for dream-like days of timeless tomfoolery without a fee for admission. A laser tag arena hosts light-based combat, a miniature golf course tests putting mettle, and an indoor go-kart track lets driver reenact the time that the Indianapolis 500 was hosted inside a local gymnasium. Platefuls of wings, pizzas, and sandwiches dot tabletops in the dining area, where visitors can feast in front of karaoke, big screen TVs, and an animatronics stage show featuring in-house band the Jammin’ Jesters.

  • Plainfield Lanes
    At Plainfield Lanes, players send balls thundering down 24 glossy lanes, scattering pins for strikes or spares. Autoscorers track the game, keeping pencils free to sketch pictures of bowling balls playing poker. In the bar and grill, guests can take a turn on the pool tables and sip from their choice of 10 on-tap brews. Those who want to keep the action going away from the lanes step into the arcade, where they can try their hand at video bowling and skeeball.

  • Thunder Bowl
    Thunder Bowl's 24 slick Brunswick Pro Anvilane lanes echo with the cacophony of wooden pins knocked askew. Behind automatic ball returns dispensing massive marbles, bar tables host groups as they taunt each other over the totals displayed across television scoreboards. Optional bumpers level the playing field for young kids and wiffle-ball pitchers who have trouble hurling things in a straight line, and cosmic bowling eschews traditional lights for a blacklit atmosphere. As families, friends, and league teams sling smooth boulders across polished wooden surfaces, Morgan's, the bar next door, hosts billiards, darts, and a menu of pizza, wings, and burgers.
