With a newly renovated interior, Diamond Strike Lanes & Sports Bar offers a pristine bowling experience for customers looking for the latest ways to stylishly topple pins. For two hours, up to six bowlers can rack up the pins and smash personal strike records on one of the alley’s 32 slick-sliding lanes. Black lights illuminate the venue, and a video jukebox features more than 10,000 choices that can be displayed on one of eight huge screens above the lanes, or on other screens scattered throughout Diamond Strike. Shoes are included for all six bowlers, as is a pitcher of soda, which will infuse participants with the energy required to telekinetically guide the ball to its target without letting it fall into a bottomless gutter.
Strikers Family Sportscenter invites guests to perfect their pin felling on 1 of 40 lanes. Bowlers handpick their favorite from a selection of neon balls and watch the 42-inch scoring monitors come to life with animated computer graphics. On weekend nights, flashing lights and music break up the rolling repetition during Rockin' Roll glow bowl. For cross-training, the arcade keeps bowling arms in tip-top shape with skee-ball and whack-a-duck. The snack bar restores nutrients lost performing the worm down an opponent's lane, frying chicken fingers and onion rings to a crisp and peppering 14-inch pizzas with a choice of 10 colorful toppings.
Holiday Bowling Center provides a recently remodeled arena for fun and friendly games of pin striking, live entertainment, and music-video nights. After slipping into a pair of treadless footwear, patrons hurl polyurethane spheres down 1 of 16 polished lanes toward pin-shaped foes, attempting to light up the electric scoring board with a coveted "X." On Thursdays and Fridays, staffers turn the lights down low and project a custom mix of music videos. Holiday Bowling Center stays open until midnight or later, giving Groupon holders plenty of time to dazzle onlookers with the flashy footwork and skillful tosses of ice-skating pizza makers.
On most days at Palm Beach Strike Zone, one can see an onslaught of bowling balls traveling down the lanes. On others, it's a helmet-wielding maniac sliding headfirst into the pins. Whatever the method employed, the alley's quality lanes ensure fair play and minimal friction. At the sports bar, visitors practice their bowling biceps by repeatedly lifting mugs of beer and slices of pizza, craning their necks to watch flat-screen televisions. Party rooms give birthday kids the chance to address their friends in private, before retiring to the lanes to take in a light and sound show as they bowl. And poker and cornhole games round out Palm Beach Strike Zone's opportunities for fun.
At Greenacres Bowl's lacquered lane emporium, competitors ranging from pint-size to full-size unleash spherical fury seven days per week. Strikes, spares, and sequential cheers ring through the center late into the evenings on weekends, which features laser bowling on Fridays and Saturdays. Automatic scoring helps cut down on disputes between opposing players or teams of Olympic figure-skating judges. In addition to games between friends, the facility also plays host to pin-punishing birthday parties, as well as leagues designed for all levels and ages. A recently sprouted billiards room lures eyes away from slick lanes and onto felt tables and high-definition televisions, while an on-site pro-shop stocks the latest shoes, gear, and accessories.
Opened in January of 1959 by Hazel Verdes, Verdes Tropicana Bowl features 32 lanes, a snack bar, and a lounge with billiard tables and a fully stocked bar. The alley offers open bowling until midnight or later, hosts parties, and oversees bowling leagues and tournaments. In addition to offering shoe and equipment rental, the pro shop supplies bowlers with gear of their own, so they can personalize bowling balls with tick marks indicating the number of pins they have knocked asunder.
