At Lake Country Lanes, stricken pins burst from the colorful background of a mural that spans the alley. Friends convene for play at traditional or bumper lanes lined with well-polished wood, and an automatic scoring system prevents opponents from clandestinely changing scores of 3 to 8 or 8 to infinity. Nearby, pool tables and video games foster competition off the lanes, and a bar with high-definition TVs and a dance floor spikes family fun with some adult recreation.
Rockhopper’s is a play park packed with plenty of indoor and outdoor attractions. One habitually unhappy person can be amply filled with merriment, thanks to unlimited access to the center's 18 mini golf greens, which weave through waterfalls, scenic landscapes, and slippery wormholes. Visitors also get two hours to enjoy Rockhopper's game room, which features classic arcade machines, pinball, air hockey, and more; two games of bite-size bowling (one game on lanes 1 or 2 and 1 game on lanes 3 or 4) are also included as part of the two-hour game play.
Sunset Bowling Lanes opened in 1959 with 24 solid-wood lanes and a stockpile of miniature pencils to keep track of spares and strikes. The alley has since upgraded to computerized scoring systems while also maintaining the charm of classic tenpin entertainment. In addition to its open bowling and league opportunities, Sunset Bowling Lanes hosts events such as college nights—which provide students with discounts so they can save up for books or exam mulligans—and keeps its patrons fueled for the eternal turkey hunt with burgers and drinks from the snack bar.
Before rushing into full-fledged competition, players at Oak Hills Lanes hone their craft with pay-as-you-go practice shots. By detecting which pins need to topple, pinsetters enable patrons to score tricky spares as they rehearse for real games or when they must knock down a neighbor's tacky lawn ornaments. Once they've warmed their throwing arms, they face off against comrades during open hours. In addition to bites such as pizza and burgers, the newly remodeled snack bar's cooks sling tacos, enchiladas, and even pancakes. Drinks are also available from a large new bar. Such noshes fuel bowlers of all ages and skill levels at various leagues, but soda and ice cream serve as the main power source during all-inclusive parties.
With its multitudinous lanes and inviting amenities, Eagle Lanes delights bowling ballers of every age. Lace up a pair of rented kicks and saunter out onto the floor for two games of pin-splitting bliss, lighting up the lane with strikes, spares, and the occasional road flare. The Steltronics electronic scoring system keeps track of players’ pin hits and misses, while slices from a large pizza keep morale high and hunger pangs low. Between frames, patrons can visit the bountiful snack bar or blow off steam with Eagle Lane's plethora of arcade games and pool tables. On Saturday nights, pin topplers can experience a more black-lit plane of existence with cosmic bowling, which imbues games with neon lights, music, and gravity.
