Setting pins up for knockdown since 1959, Kennedy Bowl hosts bowlers in a modern centre that features computerized automatic scoring for 32 lanes. Gangs of up to 12 suit up in shoes that are as aim-aiding as they are fashionable to vault balls down synthetic Brunswick Anvilane runways. On Friday and Saturday nights, the centre goes dark for cosmic bowling and its celestial atmosphere, in which music, glowing lanes, and disco lights illuminate strikes and cloak inappropriately raised pinkies during ball releases. Bumpers and lightweight balls keep lanes accessible to all ages, and Kennedy Bowl’s snack bar and classic bar furnish depleted energy reserves with sustaining solids and liquids.
Kennedy Bowl’s 32 bowling lanes were paved in 1959, but over the years its owners have kept it modern. The most notable updates they’ve made have been building a snack bar, installing automated scoring, and putting in new Brunswick Anvil synthetic lanes with bumpers. They even replaced the carpeting with a glow-in-the-dark carpeting pattern, which is most noticeable on Friday and Saturday nights when the lights dim for cosmic bowling.
