Wildlife Lanes is a family owned bowling center in Lower Burrell, PA which is 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh. We offer 36 lanes, a bar and a snack bar for family, group, and league entertainment. Wildlife Lanes is a great place to hold fundraisers for any type of organization. We have many leagues to choose from daily.
At Deer Lakes Bowl and Lounge, balls rumble down the lane before they send pins a-clatter. Between frames, bowlers munch on delicious food from the lounge. Whether they just want to snack on breaded banana peppers or zucchini fries, share a pizza, or wipe their hands on a hoagie, the food makes for better fuel than just drinking a whole bunch of cola. For those interested in rolling with a crowd, but who don't want to join a league, Deer Lakes also offers group rates that can support up to 40 people.
Sim's Bowling Lanes hosts open bowling seven days a week, inviting bowlers of all ages to come together and bond over some good-old-fashioned pin pummeling. DJs and live bands often play while players take turns tossing strikes and spares, and, on select nights, a karaoke machine lets the bowlers take the stage to sing their favorite tunes or read aloud from their unfinished memoirs. Between frames, guests can head to alley’s bar to toast the competition with a few beers or refuel for the next game with snacks like gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and baskets of wings.
Originally constructed in the 1940s, Sheffield Lanes has seen its interior evolve as the decades have changed. The original owner's son and his wife now head the bowling alley's staff, overseeing numerous renovations and quelling occasional bowling-pin uprisings. Over the years, the 20 lanes have been outfitted with contemporary accouterments: digital scoring systems and walls swathed in vibrant purples, blues, and pinks. Players have embraced the changes, convening upon the modern digs for cosmic bowling, weekly league matches, and frequent tournaments, and working to hone their skills enough to garner immortality via Sheffield Lanes' Honor Roll of high scores.
Elsewhere in the two-story edifice, chefs at Ricky Dee's Pizza—a Sheffield Lanes mainstay during the '90s that reopened in 2007—refuel bowlers with pies and oven-baked sandwiches cushioned by fresh, daily-made dough. After using their taste buds to decipher the pizzas' secret sauce recipe, guests mosey over to the Sheffield Lounge, where candles embedded into repurposed bowling balls illuminate tabletops, and walls dappled with bowling trinkets and photos provide revelers with a crash course in the bar's 50-plus-year history. Live music from onsite concert venue The Fallout Shelter enhances the cacophony of crashing pins and rowdy coasters.
Smooth-soled bowling shoes help bowlers coast over the polished wood at Economy Lanes, as they release orbs toward distant pins in one fluid motion. On Saturday nights, the lights are turned down and the tunes are cranked up for Cosmic Bowling. The alley also houses the Trolley Stop Snack Shop, which serves sandwiches, pizzas, cheese sticks, and frosty beverages to help players quench mid-game thirsts or ice down their bowlers' elbows.
The Nesbit family has run its namesake bowling alley for more than 65 years, welcoming generations of customers into its friendly environment. Eight lanes of lightly stained wood welcome casual bowlers or committed summer league competition, and the lane's gray alleys accommodate bumpers for novice bowlers or bumper-car drivers gone off course.
The Nesbits also use their business to bring people together for community fundraising events, as well as their annual, hotly contested Nesbit's Lanes Open. The 30-year-old tourney puts combatants through a treacherous gauntlet of qualifiers, match play, and finals as they vie for a cash prize.
