At Penny Jo’s Eastern Lanes, children, seniors, and league pros all find satisfaction in the thunderstorm of pin clatter that ricochets off the waxed, hardwood lanes. The family-friendly alley welcomes patrons of all ages and skill levels to line up toes together, comparing form and ankle tattoos, and taking breaks from the game to socialize over bountiful pizza and soda from the onsite snack bar.
Lido Lanes is a family-friendly bowling center offering a safe, clean environment for bowlers of all ages and skill levels. Each of the 16 waxen alleys sports a seating area, slimming lighting for weight-conscious bowling balls, and an automatic scoring system that spares bowlers the hassle of learning the game's complex scoring algorithms and theorems (such as Fermat's Last Frame). Along with stylish shoes, the spoils of your tribe's lane domination treat you to one tantalizing appetizer from Lido Lanes' bar and grill. Onion rings (a $3.40 value) provide circular sustenance, and deluxe nachos (a $4.90 value) roll in on spinning rims to satisfy the barbarian hunger generated by your three brawny ball battles. To accompany its guttural symphony of shattered strikes and exploding turkeys, Lido Lanes invites live bands, such as Chicago blues bands, country signers, and Irish bands, to rock out on the lanes during Rock N Bowl night.
Interstate Lanes complements its 40 bowling lanes with several classic avenues of entertainment, from the video arcade's flashing lights to the lounge equipped with billiard tables. As bowlers attempt to topple sets of pins, automatic scoring systems keep track of their feats, and bumpers prevent balls from triggering gutters' traumatic memories of serving in a giant mousetrap. Beyond open-bowling hours, the alley hosts competitive leagues for men, women, and children, and an onsite kitchen fires up bites such as chicken wings, specialty burgers, and freshly baked pizzas.
The independently owned Community Bowling Centers accommodate bowlers of all ages and abilities, featuring bumper-equipped lanes and lightweight balls designed for the hands of pintsize players. At 10 smoke-free locations throughout the region, guests enjoy open hours in addition to league opportunities and special events. The onsite bar serves ice-cold cups of soda or beer, which guests may raise in toasts to friendship and man's ability to hydrate himself. On select evenings, the alley lights turn down and the ethereal illumination of Glow N Bowl takes over with laser-light shows and fog machines. As balls roll down phosphorescent lanes, a sound track of thumping beats and alien distress calls saturates the space.
Belmar II Bowling Center gathers brigades of pin-pummeling patrons to launch spheres down its bevy of slick surfaces. After strapping on pairs of rental shoes, parties of four fling their orbs down one of Belmar II Bowling Center's 32 lanes as clusters of pins screech in frequencies audible only to needles. Black lights and strobe lights illumine alleys during weekly rounds of cosmic bowling as participants amass strikes and spares in an environment aglow with vivid neon hues. Pours of beer or soda soak tongues in rivulets of wheat, hops, or carbonated caffeine, keeping players relaxed and alert for their next frame or alley-based political debate.
In business since 1971, Ypsi Arbor Lanes employs the assistance of 40 sleek lanes to foster friendly competition between avid bowlers and novice pin-batterers alike. Equipped with a pair of rental kicks, tag teams can attempt compound turkeys while basking in the glow of neon lights and the sound of pulsing beats. Younger players or precision-bent bowlers have the option to buffer their win percentages with bumper-lane gutter-blockers. The automatic scoring system impartially documents strikes, gutter balls, and victory-dance wardrobe malfunctions. In addition to ample play space, Ypsi Abor Lanes nourishes its patrons with a stocked snack bar and facilitates a wider range of nuanced wrist movement with six full-size billiard tables.
