Lore's Lanes provides the balls and shoes. Guests just need to provide a swinging arm to toss bowling balls in pursuit of sending pins fleeing in fright. The bowling alley entertains couples on dates and kids attending birthday parties, complete with hot dogs and pizzas at the concession area. On Friday and Saturday nights, the alley turns into a cosmic wonderland, activating black lights to illuminate the pins, bowling balls, and any cyborg disguised as a human. Music videos play on projection screens, and song requests evoke the atmosphere of a lively club.

Though dance styles have changed in the last four decades, Anchor Dance Studio's commitment to creating a fun atmosphere for all levels of dancers has not, which has gained them the 2011 Best of Weddings pick from local users of The Knot, and the 2012 Bergen Health & Life Magazine Readers' Choice award for Best Dance Lessons. The studio's highly trained full-time instructors—each of whom possess a background in classical dance, theater, and/or dance-related activities—keep the atmosphere lively and supportive as they guide couples, singles, and children through ballroom dance routines. Full-length mirrors surrounding both of the 4,000-square-foot studio's ballrooms reflect patrons sashaying, twirling, and hand-walking their way through the tango, waltz, hustle, and merengue, while Anchor's Friday- and Saturday-night dance parties encourage all to practice their newly learned steps in a casual atmosphere complete with snacks and drinks.
