Blue River Bowl
The game of bowling hasn't changed much since Blue River Bowl opened in 1959, but the building's 16-lane alley certainly has. Rather than manually computing scores, for instance, players can sit back while an automatic system tallies each roll and flashes entertaining animations across its screens. The latest sports flicker to highlight-filled life on 16 televisions and one giant projector screen, while the lanes themselves glows during periodic neon-tinted rounds of cosmic bowling. The smoke-free alley hosts open bowling sessions every day, as well as several leagues for youths, adults, and colonies of ants that want to see if they can collectively lift the ball.
No matter their skill or competition level, bowlers can grab new gear at Blue River's pro shop, which houses shiny new balls and bags ready to report for pinbusting duty. They can also unwind at one of three on-site eateries, where cooks satiate post-game cravings for pizza, subs, and frosty drinks.
