Patrons at Tropicana Lanes sling spheres down 52 hardwood alleys equipped with electronic scoring and a decked-out lounge. Rival siblings can settle old scores or avoid mother’s Monday meatloaf night during back-to-back two-person games, and romantic duos can make eyes over sodas and hot dogs in Tropicana’s expansive lounge area as the electronic scoring system displays players’ embarrassing pet names for all to see. After pin-spinning double-headers, pairs of players can shoot pool or jockey joysticks in the game room, or opt to replace their sodas with beer for an additional fee.
Towering alongside Clayton Road, the Tropicana Lanes sign has a vintage, weather-beaten look acquired after more than 50 years of welcoming visitors. Three generations of Richmond Heights bowlers have ventured into the facility during this time, scattering pins across the same 52 lanes that have hosted the nationally televised Professional Bowlers Tour. Owner and PBA Hall of Fame inductee Ray Bluth oversees the day-to-day operations of the alley—which, despite its retro disposition, sports modern extras such as automatic scoring and singing shoelaces, and is one of the largest alleys in the state. Between frames, bowlers can kick back inside the cocktail lounge, play in the game room, or munch on wings, nachos, and hot dogs from the snack bar.
