Strike & Spare offers shipshape facilities, interactive entertainment, and a breathable oxygen atmosphere for the whole family. Each location features 30+ state-of-the-art lanes for pin-hating combatants to enjoy. Individuals who are mathematically averse or absolutely terrified of baby pencils will rejoice over automatic scoring, while bumpers help kids and wayward balls find their way. Bowlers can also eschew traditional electromagnetic wavelengths with the neon glow of deep space ball-hurling, held each week during cosmic bowling nights, with availability and times varying based on location. Those looking to fuel their magic on a lane, can also enjoy a plethora of snacks or sojourns to the lounge area.
At Tusculum Lanes, 24 shiny lanes line up to provide guests with optimal pin-smashing recreation. Groups of up to six friends or a sextuple of friendly foes can share a lane for two hours (up to $60, depending on the time) of full-contact bowling. Shoes are included, and all lanes feature automatic scoring, so contestants won’t have to waste precious time mastering the rules of the 10 frames. On Saturdays, bowlers get in touch with bowling’s dark side with ritualistic glowing lights and a pounding sound system during cosmic bowling.
The din of scattering pins echoes like distant thunder over billiard tables and arcade games, sonic evidence of the bustling alleys that tie Oak Valley Lanes' entire entertainment center together. As bowlers unleash balls toward distant pins, digital screens impartially tally scores. The smoke-free facility's billiards room features both full-size regular tables and felt fields for snooker. At the arcade, players can warp into digital football games, grapple the steering wheel in frenetic street races, or make up for the fact that they converted all their pocket change into tiddlywinks by hitting up the coin machine.
Throughout the week, Ebonite Galaxy Lanes offers a spectrum of entertainment options in the forms of 32 synthetic bowling surfaces, arcade games, live DJ performances, and an outdoor volleyball court. The alley also hosts an onsite snack bar that fuels guests with bubbling pizzas while they enjoy recreational rivalries, league nights, or live broadcasts of slot-car races every Sunday. At the in-house watering hole, Front Row Sports Bar, live DJs spin digital discs and host karaoke every Thursday through Saturday.
Amid the sprawling halls of Hendersonville Expo Center, outdoor enthusiasts wend through upwards of 100,000 square feet of displays helmed by thousands of local and regional purveyors of outdoor recreational equipment for land and sea. Fleets of RVs and personal watercrafts sit patiently as visitors daydream about future fresh air adventures or daring action movies they could film aboard the crafts. An onsite food court prevents stomachs from interrupting leisurely strolls through the show with whining growls.
