At Greenacres Bowl's lacquered lane emporium, competitors ranging from pint-size to full-size unleash spherical fury seven days per week. Strikes, spares, and sequential cheers ring through the center late into the evenings on weekends, which features laser bowling on Fridays and Saturdays. Automatic scoring helps cut down on disputes between opposing players or teams of Olympic figure-skating judges. In addition to games between friends, the facility also plays host to pin-punishing birthday parties, as well as leagues designed for all levels and ages. A recently sprouted billiards room lures eyes away from slick lanes and onto felt tables and high-definition televisions, while an on-site pro-shop stocks the latest shoes, gear, and accessories.
On most days at Bowl O Rama, formerly known as Palm Beach Strike Zone, one can see an onslaught of bowling balls traveling down the lanes. On others, it's a helmet-wielding maniac sliding headfirst into the pins. Whatever the method employed, the alley's quality lanes ensure fair play and minimal friction. At the sports bar, visitors practice their bowling biceps by repeatedly lifting mugs of beer and slices of pizza, craning their necks to watch flat-screen televisions. Party rooms give birthday kids the chance to address their friends in private, before retiring to the lanes to take in a light and sound show as they bowl. And poker and cornhole games round out Bowl O Rama's opportunities for fun.
Opened in January of 1959 by Hazel Verdes, Verdes Tropicana Bowl features 32 lanes, a snack bar, and a lounge with billiard tables and a fully stocked bar. The alley offers open bowling until midnight or later, hosts parties, and oversees bowling leagues and tournaments. In addition to offering shoe and equipment rental, the pro shop supplies bowlers with gear of their own, so they can personalize bowling balls with tick marks indicating the number of pins they have knocked asunder.

"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in bowling, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public.
Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature the latest technologies, from high-tech scoring systems to the ability to share experiences on social media. Bowlers can also refuel on a menu of American foods when they get hungry or the little heart-shaped meter above their heads begins blinking.
