"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.

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.
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.

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.
