My friends and I recently took the kids bowling. We went on a summer Tuesday afternoon and it was quite busy. They have bumper bowling for the kids and they also have ramps where the kids can put the ball on and line it up and even the youngest toddler can enjoy the "bowling" experience. The cost of the lanes seemed a little high at $20/hr, but maybe that's the norm and the last time I was at the alley, MY mom was paying and I was bumper bowling. The shoe rental seems steep too at $3.50. But if you have a bunch of people and split the cost, it's not that bad. It was nice and cool on a hot day!
