Don't be fooled by the name. Allen Bowl is really three destinations in one: bowling alley, arcade, and restaurant. Here's a quick look at each part.
Eight sets of identical triplets could bowl simultaneously across the alley's 24 lanes.
Bowlers as young as 3 can sign up for a youth league; adults have leagues as well.

Strikz Entertainment features everything groups need to entertain themselves, keeping the party alive until midnight or later with bowling, billiards, complete food menu, arcade games, and a full bar. The center boasts 20 standard bowling lanes with computerized scoring and automatic bumpers along with meeting space for large group events. Twelve more lanes wait in the Rose Room, a boutique bowling lounge with a 23-foot projection screen, high-definition televisions, and cozy couches for people to sit in between frames. Upbeat music in the laser-tag arena gets pulses racing while casual gladiators prowl throughout the area's fog-filled corridors and blacklit wine cellars. A hundred games fill the arcade area, inviting guests to rest for a bit and test their reflexes with a round of skee-ball or Pac-Man.
In between matches, Strikz Entertainment refuels patrons with hearty servings of hamburgers, finger foods, and cocktails. Servers also drift throughout the space, providing lane-side service to guests and encouraging them to purchase United States savings bonds.
Plano Super Bowl lets the pins fall all night long with round-the-clock, 24-hour lane availability for bowlers of all levels. The alley keeps its doors open year-round, encouraging bowlers to stop by for competitive league nights or noncompetitive gatherings at the game room, bar, and snack bar. Rollers can also gather for kids' and adults' lane-side parties, enjoyable for both beginners and seasoned veterans who know the differences between strikes and spares.
Bowling isn’t just a hobby at 300 New York—it’s a vibrant social experience worthy of luxurious flourishes. That’s why cushioned lounge seats flank each of the 32 mood-lit lanes in the main concourse area. Each of these lanes faces a large screen that flashes music videos and tutorials on how to remove stuck fingers from bowling balls. Up in The Loft, bowlers can lounge and take in views of the concourse while sipping cocktails from the full-service bar. A dedicated wait staff connects them to offerings from the onsite bar and restaurant—an eatery known for serving dishes from executive chef Chad Bowser’s menu. Some of Chad’s creations include two-bite chicken or beef sliders and hand-battered fried calamari that can be paired with anything from beer to specialty martinis.
A zapping haven with historical awareness, the Shenaniganz laser tag arena pits up to 24 players against one another in the gloomy haze and vibrant lighting of a 12th-century Cambodian temple. Players can repurpose ancient temple ruins as opaque bunkers and unload some light on unsuspecting opponents. Safe and well maintained, the laser tag arena warms up trigger fingers for joysticked, button-mashing mayhem in the 7,000-square-foot arcade. Stocked with more than 100 games, the arcade zone is a sanctuary for prize-seeking ticket hoarders and friendly competitors alike. With $35 worth of credits, players might be able to swap jackpots for prizes ranging from candy to a life-sized portrait of Macaulay Culkin. While children go wild in the arcade, parents can relax at the on-site sports bar, with more than 40 flat-screen TVs and two 25-foot hi-definition movie screens. Shenaniganz also has a restaurant and state-of-the-art bowling center. No reservations are required for laser tag, though players can always phone ahead to ensure there's no private party or toddler rave occupying the arena.
Though bowling is a timeless pastime, Rowlett Bowl-A-Rama keeps its lanes up to date. Players send balls gliding down 26 synthetic lanes, where their scores are kept by a computer, so no one has to brush up on their times tables before they play. Bumpers can be called into action at any lane, and on some nights the black lights illuminate the lanes. When it's time for a bowling break, players can escape to the 40-game arcade or grab a bite or drink at Splits Sports Grill, the onsite restaurant and bar.
