While lanes are available seven days a week at Timber Lanes, on Sunday mornings as well Friday evenings, 24 candlepin lanes glow under the colorful hues of cosmic lights. Subwoofers pulsate with popular music, and video screens display music videos that play in sync with the rhythm, causing pins to burst out into spontaneous break dancing. And when the alley's not hopping with cosmic excitement, it hosts leagues for children and adults and enchants bowlers of all ages with the classic melodies that swim through the air during moonlight oldies sessions on Saturday nights.
Hanson Bowladrome-Olde Fashion Candlepin Bowling takes patrons back into the nostalgia of olde-time candlepin bowling with 12 lanes opened in the 1960’s and olde-time scoring on bowling sheets. Since candlepin bowling can be just a bit trickier than your average session of tenpin bowling, it makes sense that Hanson Bowladrome provides an easy way for players to treat themselves. In addition to the recently renovated lanes, updated lighting, and discounted shoe rentals, the Bowladrome offers up sustenance in the form of light-fare with hot dogs, cold drinks, and candy.
Though Westgate Lanes has been open for more than half a century, you'd never know it from just looking at the Brockton institution, which benefited from a pre-Millennium face-lift in 1999. Today, all 62 lanes feature automatic scoring, new furniture, and modern lighting, which casts a celestial aura during prize-packed cosmic bowling on Saturday nights. Open 365 days a year, the facility swings open its doors to challenge sphere-flinging friends, leagues, and parties with frames of tenpin or candlepin, a variation of bowling that uses smaller balls and requires more concentration than teaching a mechanical bull long division. High-definition TVs orbit the center's 13 billiards tables, and, between competitive rounds, players can refuel fatigued fingers at Harry's Pub and Grill.
Fred Thompson and Phil Hamric, the owners of Viking Recreation Center, are driven by a passion for two things: bowling and raising money for worthy causes. Their family entertainment center regularly hosts fundraising events to support the local school system and a multitude of charity programs. And it's not like they have a hard time getting people to come out; their all-ages league and open candlepin bowling virtually assure a steady stream of bowlers coming out to rack up strikes and spares. Throughout the day and into the night, bowling balls rocket down the alley's 16 lanes. Meanwhile, two pool tables and a video arcade offer even more ways to engage in friendly competition or settle decades-old clan disputes.
