A rolling good time for bowlers of all ages and abilities, Rockville Centre Lanes is the ideal spot for families, parties, competitive bowlers, and even business outings. A number of bowling leagues cater to parent-child teams, or competitive adult teams that vie for prizes. Bowlers can celebrate a birthday with a cosmic bowling party on Friday night, which includes a party host, invitations, and horoscopes written on every paper plate. In the summer, groups can even rent a portable lane to host outdoor bowling soir?es.
Baldwin Bowl entertains families with bowling, games, food, and libations. Newly renovated, the upscale space invites players to lounge on leather couches and enjoy a beverage while gluing their eyes to the large-screen TVs above their lane. Automatic scoring takes all the math away from outings and the fun continues away from the game with a full arcade and pub fare. The bowling mecca also hosts parties for kids and adults as well as bowling-league play, karaoke, and darts leagues.
At South Levittown Lanes, automatic scoring systems tabulate scores on flat-screen TVs as bowlers send orbs spinning down well-waxed lanes. Bowlers can keep one eye on the game and one eye on the projection screen suspended high above the lanes, or traipse to the lounge area to shoot some pool. Guests can also pop in on weekend nights for glow bowling, which transforms the alley into surreal arena of neon illumination, much like the White House after hours.
Clattering pins don't just echo across the half-century-old lanes of Woodmere Lanes during traditional open-bowl hours, but also during unique late-night events on weekend evenings. On Fridays, infectious tunes pulse from speakers to underscore X-Treme Bowling events that don't just tolerate post-strike break dances, they encourage them. Midnight Marathons on Saturday nights, otherwise, pit players against each other in a pin-crushing race for cash prizes. Tasty snacks and frothy suds from the concession stand are available all week, when players can cheer on their favorite adult or junior league.
For more than 50 years bowlers have slung three-holed boulders down Massapequa Bowl & Lounge's 30 shiny lanes. As automated scoring tallies up their points, bowlers chat across coffee tables, while seated in plush couches and feasting on beer and pizza. Elsewhere, an arcade and stuffed animal-building station draws kids in for parties replete with a rainbow colored candy bar. Visitors can also get their competitive edges sharpened flinging darts during South Nassau Darts Associations darts leagues.
Farmingdale Lanes's smooth, polished lanes are always ready for a good time. Set among a lively atmosphere?with painted murals on the walls and computers keeping score?they make for an apt location for a family outing, a night with friends, or a birthday party. They also go dark for cosmic bowling, which includes laser lights, Top 40 music videos, and trivia.
