  • Bowlerama Lanes
    In 2012, Bowlerama Lanes upgraded its equipment and emerged with its 28 lanes now covered in sleek synthetic material and bumpers that can be called into action at will. Overheard, 40-inch LCD screens flicker with scores that have been calculated on high-tech Qubica Bowland X auto-scoring machines instead of dad's trusty finger abacus. Between frames, bowlers can grab a bite or a drink at the snack counter, where they serve up a menu of sandwiches, pizza, and shareable snacks.
