The low, steady rumbling of balls rolling across polished wood echoes throughout Andover Lanes, where players line up shots or watch their friends topple pins from a seating area outfitted with retro, three-sided tables. Pulsating dance beats reverberate from the alley’s internet jukebox, mingling with the thunderous sounds of pins crashing to create an air of palpable excitement. This excitement is never more apparent than on Friday evenings, when the 24 lanes take on incandescent hues during rounds of cosmic bowling and the alley’s full bar and grill stays busy all night slinging pizzas, wraps, and burgers. The alley’s arcade similarly lights up with glinting pool balls and video-game consoles that keep fingers loose after hours of hurling balls down lanes or bench-pressing french fries. To complement its all-American food and retro vibe, the bar also hosts a wide projection screen for sports games and a stage for karaoke and live musicians
Since 1995, the Bunker Park Stable staff and their trusty team of horses have hosted a wide array of equine-based activities including lessons, trail rides, hay rides, and day camps. The stable’s well-appointed facilities reside inside the 1,600-acre Bunker Hills Regional Park and act as a hub for the vast network of trails that passes through the park’s grassy meadows and vast forests of pine and oak. Horse-top visitors may witness native park wildlife such as white-tail deer, sandhill cranes, and hawks and overhear songbirds as they belt out choruses in the hopes of becoming the next superstar discovered in a forest, just like Celine Dion.
Pump It Up's Inflatable Party Zone balloons kids’ excitement with an enormous playspace that welcomes open-play sessions and private parties.

Various open-play sessions give kids of all ages free rein to the fun zone while accompanying parents stand by to officiate bounce-house property-line disputes. Pump It Up also boasts myriad celebratory and special-event shindigs, with friendly staffers supervising jumpers, and serving pizza and favors in a vibrant party room.
