"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.

People have been tossing bowling balls down Manor Bowl’s 30 lanes since 1960. Open daily, the bowling center fills its lanes with leagues vying for the top spot, as well as groups of friends, families, and couples out for the night. A special youth program leads kids through 10 weeks of bowling with fun dress-up days and weekly awards such as Most Improved and Best Smelling Bowling Ball. The center’s designated party room refuels partygoers with pizza and pop in between rounds of bowling, and sends them off with T-shirts and souvenir bowling pins.
