On Sunday evenings, you might mistake Wilsonville Lanes for Monte Carlo. Sure, its 22 contemporary lanes look the same as on any ordinary day, but the games come with higher stakes. Bowlers can toss some money into the jackpot and participate in one of three games: Spin the Wheel, 4x4, or Blackjack. Of course, these games are a bit different than the ones played on card tables or by dogs in paintings. For example, Blackjack players bowl four shots on four different lanes, instead of flipping cards, seeking a fallen-pin count of 21 to win the jackpot.
But even when it's not Monte Carlo night, Wilsonville Lanes still has plenty to keep guests entertained. In addition to family-friendly bowling, which includes Cosmic Bowling on Fridays and Saturdays, the alley also boasts an arcade, Wi-Fi, HD TVs, and pool tables. Plus, the cafe serves up burgers, hot dogs, and salads to keep players fueled between games.
