At First State Lanes, families vie for pin-smashing superiority as they hurl elephantine orbs down one of the alley's 28 wooden lanes. Younger bowlers benefit from the bounce of automatic bumpers, and of-age players rejoice in victory suds at the on-site bar. The facility also boasts an interactive arcade in addition to a well-spaced collection of competitive pool tables, each of which gives players one more reason to study pi.
First State Lanes
For nearly 40 years, First State Lanes has kept pastimers and ardent tenpin enthusiasts furnished with waxed lanes, snack-bar provender, and accouterments from a fully stocked pro shop. Amateurs hurl spheroids at lanes alongside semi-pros doing battle in colorful league uniforms or impressive gladiator outfits. During rounds, the full-service snack bar slings pizzas, plates of signature chicken tenders, and a selection of beers. During the evenings, bouts of cosmic red-pin bowling cast pins in crimson and black-light glow, and any bowler who throws a strike that houses le pin rouge wins a dollar. For less alley-based diversions, guests can saunter over to the game room to play pool and arcade games.
