    We bowled on a league a few years ago, we loved the league but not how we were treated or how lanes are poorly kept. The lanes were constantly breaking down weekly and one of my co-bowlers balls came back chipped. My co-bowler is currently bowling in a sanctioned league and their lane broke down during the first game. When the lane was finally back up their team was way behind the other teams about an hour behind. Park Lane Lanes have done many so called improvements to attract customers maybe they should concentrate on improving the lanes. They also lack customer service, there were times the employees were at the counter playing cards not paying attention to their bowlers needs when the lanes broke down.

    Building needs a major redo. Approaches are tacky to the put where you wonder if your knee won’t keep going when the rest of you stopped. Lane conditions are challenging, which I have no issue with. To those of you who like to brag about your average, this isn’t the place to fluff it up like the other houses that make the shot so easy you can close your eyes when you throw.Customer service is a joke. This is usually what happens when nothing but family members are given jobs to “run” the show. I’m sure many of you have run across business where the father owned it, gave it to his son (who wasn’t qualified) to supposedly manage, who then hired their kids ( who do NOTHING) for customer service positions. This is that place. They’re always jacking around, and customer service is an afterthought (and evidently an inconvenience).I’d say go elsewhere, but the other locations aren’t much better. This town needs new blood, but I don’t think the economy will permit that. They have a captive audience, and they know it. That is the problem in a nutshell.

    Park lanes has its place in the bowling world, but both those bowling for fun and sport are in for a surprise. Park can be known for its oily and fairly difficult shot. There are several tournaments held there over the year, and those wanting to preform well will have to adjust their shot to make up for the extra oil on the outside. However, in my opinion, the overall condition of the alley is too poor to overcome the challenge it offers via lane conditions. The machines themselves seem to need maintenance, something that even the average bowler could notice. Pins were dropped on the first rack often, and on several lanes I observed during my visit, which is normally no big deal at an older alley. However, the newer machines should not be experiencing so many troubles. The approaches have also been known to be very sticky, and during one tournament I attended at park there was dried pop on the lane from the day before. That being said, their customer service isn’t the greatest. They do not go out of their way to support the local high school teams by giving practice time, like all the other alleys in the area do. That being said, the employees aren’t very open to customer suggestions, whether they be from former PBA bowlers or the average Joe. That all being said, Park lanes does present a challenge as far as bowling competitively is concerned, and most of my criticisms are nitpicky things coming from someone who used to work in another alley in town. Those wanting to bowl and have a great time shouldn’t necessary avoid park lanes, but they should definitely try to keep in mind these things (which are all purely of my own opinion: nothing else)

    We did the “Kids Bowl Free” quite a bit here this summer and had a great time. The staff was always helpful and the lanes were very clean.

    It’s a bowling alley – it’s fine. It’s a little pricey unless you go during some special pricing times in which case you can get a very good deal.
