As the home of the TSN Classic Bowl Championship, Classic Bowl sees its share of high-stakes bowling. Even during recreational matches, the alley’s shimmering lights reflect the competitive glint in bowlers’ eyes as they stare out at the polished surfaces of 60 lanes that span 70,000 square feet. The echoes of crashing pins resonate throughout this expansive space seven days a week and reach their zenith during cosmic bowling on weekends, when party lights set matches aglow and pins sway to the beats of popular tunes spun by a live DJ. In between games, recharge with food and drinks at a full-service bar or sharpen hand-eye rapport during button-smashing melees in the arcade. Experts at the on-site pro shop equip bowlers with gear, offer helpful advice for improving scores, and feed energy bars to the hamsters that thanklessly propel balls toward their targets.
Computerized scoring tracks bowlers’ adventures on Streetsville Bowl’s 12 lanes, documenting their every victory or defeat over an opposing army of five pins. Optional bumpers can shift the battle's odds in players’ favor, preventing balls from rolling away into the gutter or off to pacifist colonies to exist alongside pins in harmony. During breaks from the action, players can refuel with snack-bar fare such as piping-hot mozzarella sticks, or man the joysticks at the onsite arcade.
A chorus of scattering pins fills the air at All Star Interactive, a two-floor complex where guests hurl bowling balls down 24 lanes equipped with automatic scoring. A casual atmosphere awaits downstairs, where guests can compete in classic bowling or cosmic bowling. Upstairs, the Danforth Suite houses 12 private lanes amid dark leather lounge chairs and sofas, large-screen TVs, a full-service bar, and commissioned Canadian art illuminated by pendant lights. The upscale alleyway hosts private parties, corporate events, league games, and seminars on what to do if you encounter a bowling ball in the wild. And while bowling is clearly All Star Interactive's main draw, it's far from its only attraction. Guests can also square off in games of billiards and dine on a menu of classic grill fare.

Burlington Bowl's 48 lanes stretch across 42,000 square feet and have welcomed orb-slinging gamers for decades.

The centre also boasts a pro shop and its own bowling leagues with more than 1,000 members. On select nights, Burlington Bowl transforms into a cosmic glow-in-the-dark bowling show palace, complete with special-effect lighting and the latest music.

Checkerboard patterns dominate Brooklyns Bar & Grill, their eatery that was featured on the Food Network's Restaurant Makeover in 2006. Two full bars, a snack bar, and vending machines also fuel pin-battling victories, whereas pool and air-hockey competitions in the games room help guests work up appetites. The bowling centre and its full-service restaurant welcome companies, teams, schools and fundraising efforts throughout the week.
