This happens to be the only bowling center in our town.
I have to admit, that I have only spent about 10 minutes in this place. I went in to buy a birthday party package for my middle daughter. I went during the day, where there was only 1 person bowling, and a few people in the bar and eating area. The place smelled so badly of cigarrette smoke, I couldn't wait to get out.
My husband took my daughter and her friends bowling. The price of the birthday package was great, as we had a coupon that brought it down. They got to bowl, have a meal, then my daughter was given a bowling pin that her friends got to sign. They had a good time, and the people were very nice.
I think Linn Lanes is a fun place to go, with nice people running it. However, I do wish they would ban the smoking that is allowed in there, as people like me (with asthma), can't really be in a place like that. After being there for the 10 minutes that I was, I had to go home and shower to get the smell from me. I felt bad about sending my kids in there with it--and sending their friends home smelling of cigarettes. I hate to be blunt like this, as everything is great about this place but that one thing. Truly, it's too bad that the bar area, where they smoke, doesn't have a super duper air filtration system. ;-)
