We had my sons birthday party here and the kids had a blast. We had 3 lanes at the end of the place so we had some privacy and extra room. I think they try and put all the parties down there which is a good idea. The kids had hot dogs and pop and we brought in a cake. They gave us 2 hours to bowl instead of a number of games, this was great because some kids liked to bowl more than others. We would go again.
