As bowlers hurl balls down Heritage’s 20 lanes, videos blast on 96-inch screens while music swells from the alley’s powerful sound system. Here, colorful neon lights fill the air four nights a week, bathing bowlers in an otherworldly glow for cosmic bowling. Each lane is equipped with fully computerized scoring, relieving bowlers of the shame that accompanies revealing an inability to do math.
Behind the lanes, two full-sized tables and the arcade’s skee-ball and video games further foster bouts of friendly competition. An indoor barbecue fuels the revelry with an extensive menu of sirloin steaks and all-beef burgers, and an arsenal of liquors and beers stock the on-site bar.
To a soundtrack of upbeat music, players at Century Bowling take aim at pins under standard lighting or the glow of black lights. Computerized scoring flashes across above-lane screens, and automatic bumpers help newer players keep their balls on course without installing thumbhole GPS systems. From their lanes’ seating area, players can snack on pizza, hot dogs, and appetizers between turns or sip on draft and bottled beers or mixed drinks.
