Sky Deck Sports Grille & Lanes lays claim to a 30,000-square-foot slice of the famed Mall of America, spreading fields of modern bowling lanes out alongside groves of pool tables and arcade games. The 12 lanes entice pin-crushers with a contemporary aesthetic: glossy hardwood glows under blue lights like a field of violets covered in lava and music videos splash across huge screens. Nestled behind the lanes are semiprivate lounges bordered with plush blue and crimson benches. Here, bowlers can perfect choreographed victory dances between sets or host private bashes planned with the help of an in-house event specialist. Nights of revelry often spill into the grill and bar, which trounce traditional bar snacks with a full menu of half-pound burgers and pizzas fired in a stone oven. The dining area also houses some of Sky Deck's 30 high-definition projection screens and flat-screen TVs, broadcasting several sports games in unison.
In the Billiards Room, awash with soft light, visitors mimic the pros on another set of televisions as they star in their own matches. Competitors can also prepare for a future of battling machines by facing off against virtual opponents in the arcade, packed with games such as Fast & Furious SuperCars racing, air hockey, and Super Shot basketball.
