Royal Lanes beckons bowlers looking to demolish pin pyramids with 36 glossy lanes, more than 20 TVs, and sudsy beers served in the onsite sports bar and grill. In addition, automatic scoring machines keep track of strikes and spares while sparing guests the hassle of lugging heavy abacuses around with them. The in-house bowling shop sends serious sphere-slingers home with proper gear, and blue billiards tables and arcade games provide bowlers with more opportunities for victory.
A different event every night adds to the alley’s already festive atmosphere and includes happenings such as cosmic bowling, ladies' night, and wings night. EMTs, senior citizens, and employees of the military, police department, and fire department can expect special discounts. The alley also provides party packages that include setup, cleanup, invites, utensils, and a pin for all guests to autograph.
With two consecutive Professional Bowlers Association tours under his belt, Courtney Miller extends his bowling expertise to pin-crashers aged 4 to 16 with a heat-evading, torque-tuning summer camp. For three hours a day, Monday through Friday, campers hurtle bowling balls down the cool, air-conditioned alleyways of the AMF Charleston Lanes, learning the best way to avoid gutters or navigate awkward small-talk with a ball return. Outfitted in a provided summer-camp T-shirt and bowling shoes, each mini-Dude-in-training gets to play three games a day, stopping only to nosh on pizza, take a tour of the pin-setting machines, or learn the mythical origins of the legendary 12th frame.
