Balls rumble down World Bowl?s 40 polished lanes as the glowing lights of video projection screens glint off determined bowlers? eyes. Seated beside their chosen lane, bowlers can lace up their shoes, listen for the echoes of crashing pins, and refer to a computerized scoring system that keeps track of every strike, spare, and wandering turkey. Between games, roll over to World Bowl's fully licensed snack barwhere servers refill empty stomachs and hollow bowling balls with pizza and drinks such as draft beer, cocktails, and wine. Bowlers can also opt to check out disco bowling on Friday and Saturday nights for alley antics paired with hip-shaking tunes or sharpen their hand-eye coordination through button-smashing melees or foosball matches in the arcade.

Thirty-six 10-pin lanes sprawl across the brightly-colored carpet at Woodbridge Bowl, voted "Best Bowling 2013" by readers of the Vaughan Citizen. Bowlers leave the abacus at home, since Vector Plus automated systems keep track of their scores, and kids play unfettered by gutter balls, as 12 of the 36 lanes can be fitted with bumpers. Between games, players escape to the arcade, which houses four full-size billiards tables. Kids' birthday party packages not only please the smaller set, but also include a pot of coffee for the adults.

Established: 1954 Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Parking lot Recommended Age Group: All Ages Playtime Bowl is a far cry from retro alleys that nod to the '70s. Although all the elements of the classic alley are there?48 lanes of clattering pins and two bars?they're sheathed in modern design. From color-dappled booths, to 10'x6' projection screen hovering over the lanes, to high-backed banquets in the bar area, the alley can feel as much like a high-end sports bar as it does a place for crushing pins. But crushing pins is its reason for being, and Playtime does it right. Joining regular 10-pin style games are rounds of cosmic bowling, which see the lights turned down and the tunes turned up as computerized light shows surround lanes with a club-like atmosphere. And on certain nights of the week, Playtime even offers bottomless bowling deals, when people can bowl until the doors close or the pins begin to wave white flags.
