Today, I took a trip down memory lane, or lanes as it is. My niece had her 13th birthday party at the bowling alley, the one I used to bowl at growing up.
Since I was a kid, there's been a lot of additions made, and lots of upgrades. The bowling alley is situated in Sparta, just 10 minutes north of Alpine.
Aside from the bowling lanes, there's a nice black light lit arcade for the kids, a good sized sports bar, and a nice restaurant.
The prices are decent, starting at $14 per hour for a lane, with up to 6 people bowling on each lane. The price also includes shoe rental. Peak hours have slightly higher prices.
There are also Friday night glo-bowling, with rock music playing, and the bowling alley lit up with black lights. Prices start out at $36 per lane for up to 6 people for 2 hours, from 11pm to 1am Friday nights.
If you are looking for family fun, this is a great place to find it, or an evening out without the kids.
