Strike & Spare offers shipshape facilities, interactive entertainment, and a breathable oxygen atmosphere for the whole family. Each location features 30+ state-of-the-art lanes for pin-hating combatants to enjoy. Individuals who are mathematically averse or absolutely terrified of baby pencils will rejoice over automatic scoring, while bumpers help kids and wayward balls find their way. Bowlers can also eschew traditional electromagnetic wavelengths with the neon glow of deep space ball-hurling, held each week during cosmic bowling nights, with availability and times varying based on location. Those looking to fuel their magic on a lane, can also enjoy a plethora of snacks or sojourns to the lounge area.
Throughout the week, Ebonite Galaxy Lanes offers a spectrum of entertainment options in the forms of 32 synthetic bowling surfaces, arcade games, live DJ performances, and an outdoor volleyball court. The alley also hosts an onsite snack bar that fuels guests with bubbling pizzas while they enjoy recreational rivalries, league nights, or live broadcasts of slot-car races every Sunday. At the in-house watering hole, Front Row Sports Bar, live DJs spin digital discs and host karaoke every Thursday through Saturday.
At Tusculum Lanes, 24 shiny lanes line up to provide guests with optimal pin-smashing recreation. Groups of up to six friends or a sextuple of friendly foes can share a lane for two hours (up to $60, depending on the time) of full-contact bowling. Shoes are included, and all lanes feature automatic scoring, so contestants won’t have to waste precious time mastering the rules of the 10 frames. On Saturdays, bowlers get in touch with bowling’s dark side with ritualistic glowing lights and a pounding sound system during cosmic bowling.
The din of scattering pins echoes like distant thunder over billiard tables and arcade games, sonic evidence of the bustling alleys that tie Oak Valley Lanes' entire entertainment center together. As bowlers unleash balls toward distant pins, digital screens impartially tally scores. The smoke-free facility's billiards room features both full-size regular tables and felt fields for snooker. At the arcade, players can warp into digital football games, grapple the steering wheel in frenetic street races, or make up for the fact that they converted all their pocket change into tiddlywinks by hitting up the coin machine.
Voted Best Bowling Alley in the Valley by readers of the Valley Planet in 2010, Plamor Lanes houses gleaming floors for rented shoes to squeak over and polished lanes to send multicolored orbs sliding down. Feast on a cheese-laden pizza and quench powerful thirsts with two large drinks, which motivate arms to continue performing twisting trick shots and fuel mouths' attempts to convince rivals that the lowest score wins. Comfortable pairs of rented shoes are included with this package, which can be redeemed during open hours, Sunday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to midnight or Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 1 a.m., except during league play from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
When patrons step into Lanes, Trains, & Automobiles Entertainment Depot, playful noises jostle their senses: the crash of bowling pins, the decisive zaps of laser-tag guns, the thunder of colliding bumper cars. The center shelters a spectrum of friendly competition under one roof, but at the heart are 32 bowling lanes. During open-bowling hours and late-night cosmic bowling, touchscreens tally strikes and automatic bumpers shift up and down to accommodate different players in case they decide to somersault down the lane.
Nearby, up to 16 laser-tag soldiers duck behind barrels and walls splattered with neon paint in the 2,500-square-foot Lazer Station. In the Spinzone, black lights and colorful spotlights swivel around a central traffic signal, which dictates the stops, starts, and illegal U-turns of bumper cars.
In the arcade, patrons battle for champion status and pick of pizza toppings at air-hockey tables, skee-ball machines, and racing video games. Professional competitors face off on flat-screen TVs at Tailgaters, an on-site eatery slinging burgers and pizza. Eight VIP bowling lanes, a designated party zone, and a stage for live entertainment and karaoke act as peaceful dignitaries in the 4,500-square-foot restaurant as well.
