As the largest owner and and operator of bowling centers in the US, AMF locations offer high-tech scoring technology, a classic design, and a menu stocked with American-inspired classics such as wings, pizzas, burgers, and beer.

Today, the rink's hardwood surface provides smooth gliding after five decades upkeep, upbeat music, and upstanding gentlemen who know how to ask a gal to dance despite having untimely sweaty palms.

If the words Reindeer Manor have you imagining sleigh rides, warm cocoa, and carols by the fire...you might want to stay home. Because this Reindeer Manor isn't out to make you sing?it wants to make you scream.

Now in its 41st year of operation, Reindeer Manor Halloween Park facilitates thrills and chills with not one, but three haunted attractions in one location. Daring patrons must first brave the cursed hallways of Reindeer Manor Haunted House, it's setting inspired by the unspeakable horrors that occurred in the real-life Reindeer Manor around a century ago. Those who survive will find themselves forced to face the evils of the 13th Street Morgue, where an entire family was once murdered in cold blood. Then they'll make a descent into the Dungeon of Doom, which, in its heyday, was a saloon where several townspeople fell over dead after drinking tainted well water and finding out they were over-charged for it. If that description fails to send shivers up your spine, consider this: unlike at some haunted attractions, the spooks at Reindeer Manor can and may touch visitors at any time, meaning you may just find yourself one of the manor's newest residents before the night is through.
