This bowling alley and funplex offers fun for the entire family—even the youngest members—and that is what sets it apart from the competition. One side offers a 56-lane bowling alley, including lanes complete with kiddie bumpers to keep kids balls in the lane rather than in the gutters. The other side offers a soft play area for little kids, as well as videogames, bumper cars and redemption games. Families pack the place on the weekends, but the crowd gets older as the night progresses.
