Where are we going today?
Bowling is SUCH a great way for the family to enjoy some great time together having a laugh, building your coordination, and perhaps enjoying a little friendly competition (there's nothing wrong with that!)
Chacko's Family Bowling Center in Pennsylvania has 40 AMF lanes just for that purpose! Get the family together, and unlike baseball - celebrate when you get that STRIKE!
The lanes have automatic scoring, so you don't have to worry about how much the strikes and spares are worth....you just concentrate on how you're doing to distract your next opponent!
Bowling is a great sport for kids. It keeps them active, and they can see themselves improving across time, which is great for their confidence. Don't worry if they haven't bowled before, because Chacko's Family Bowling Center has automatic bumpers for the kids, which means they don't waste their turn by rolling those dreaded gutter balls.
The bowling balls are color coded so you will always know what weight you are using, and the lanes are 100% handicap accessible - so everyone can play!
Celebrating a birthday? Of course you are! (You do every year!) so why not bring all your friends and enjoy a game together. They offer great deals for parties, and offer some pretty tasty food too!
If the kids need a break in between games, they can just head over to the arcade with ticket redemption, so they might even walk away with a prize!
Are you feeling like you might head home with a few strikes under your belt? There is only one way to find out! STRIKE!

A horrible experience to say the least. I was there with my 8 year old daughter and when I walked up to the counter there was a younger lady there who was on the phone. Took forever to acknowledge us and was cursing to whoever she was talking to. My daughter heard her and i'm still completely offended. Be more professional. WILL NOT BE COMING BACK.

I had a horrible experience there. I'm assuming the young lady who was rude was the daughter of the establishment but she made a comment that I didn't work for a good company. Really??? I didn't come there to be insulted. She made several other comments as well that offended me. She was absolutely rude, terrible customer service, not a place I would ever go back again. I hate to complain but i'm all about good customer service. I used to bring my team there every month. Never again. I'm not rude or disrespectful so I don't deserve to be treated...Read More

This place was nice.. They have a good deal where for 2 you get 2 games of bowling a pizza, soda and RC movie tickets for $50.. That wasn't a bad deal.. Took the whole family spent $100 and doubled the whole thing. But Dinner bowling and a movie for 4 was well worth it.. Basically filled our entire day..

That place is a rip off we payed 49 bucks for three games!! They forced us into just going to play and pay after this place is not good!!

Chacko's did not provide a family-friendly experience. Parents were unsatisfied with the price, while the kids did not enjoy the reception from the inconsiderate staff members. I recommend finding a different activity for the family; the bowling center was definitely not worth the trip.

Not worth it. Go to STANTON LANES.
