If you have given up on Green Acres Bowl or had a bad experience the last time you went. Give it another try! They are currently under new management & right away we could tell. Although the building is still dated, it’s understandable that there isn’t a whole lot you can do about that, shy of a complete tear down.
But if you’re looking for some fun & inexpensive family time, The Bowling Alley is a great option!
I think we can all agree that bowling is more fun with a group of friends! We were joined by our pals, Nate, Lily & Cherish. This dose of healthy competition was full of lots of cheering & laughter.
Although “some” of us were beginners…
They got the gist of it pretty quickly… However, the balls were moving pretty slowly lol
We did a lot of waiting in anticipation. Partly, to see how many pins got knocked down and partly to see if the ball would make it to the end… haha! And to be honest, it didn’t a couple of times.. But, the friendly staff was there to help us on both occasions, without even asking!
We did “cheat” a bit with the bumpers, however, we never pulled out the “dragon” – Which looks sort of like a slide for your bowling ball ($5 Extra)
Of course, it wouldn’t be our little adventurers if they didn’t begggggg for something extra and today was no different. The bowling alley has a few arcade games that you can play & naturally, we caved to their demands. Air hockey was our favorite & very intense. The games are a bit expensive (in our opinion) but nothing over $1.
*REMEMBER TO BRING*
- Socks (Who hasn’t forgotten those infernal socks, once in their life) -they have a machine for backup, but no one wants to pay $6 for socks?
- Comfy clothes (not a dress, Alyx…)
- Quarters or $1 bills (they have a change machine)
- You will need it for both games &&& the juke box!)
- Friends & family
- Your good bowling arm (hehe)
All our love,
