French King Bowling Center

President of the International Candlepin Bowling Association, Ralph Semb presides over French King Bowling Center, which has been in his family for 53 years. The center’s 16 lanes feature candlepin bowling, a 10-pin variation that utilizes taller, lankier pins and smaller balls that have not yet sprouted finger holes. Semb himself holds the highest officially sanctioned score at 245 out of 300 possible points—a feat that has been tied but never bested. The food court serves up burgers, pizza, and soda to bolster bowlers, and a video arcade provides an alternative to ball hurling. Neon bowling on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays lets guests experience what it would be like to bowl inside a lava lamp. Birthday parties for up to 10 guests include one hour of bowling followed by an one-hour party with pizza, french fries, soda, and ice cream. Each guest also gets quarters to feed hungry arcade games and toy dispensers.
