  • Way too expensive, over $6.50 per person per game. I bowl regularly at a place that's $3.50 and they just recently upped their prices. We got put on the far right lane, #16, which we later discovered has a right tilt affecting all our bowls. We checked multiple times through multiple methods such as putting a left spin on the ball and having it still bank right into the gutter. There is a very definite tilt. EDIT: Didn't think it could get worse but it did. The air vents for the air hockey table won't let the puck slide more than 3 feet and after two shots the puck got stuck in the goal. We attempted to get food, only to learn they don't have anymore fries. Three games in the arcade are broken and one of our party members got a splinter on the railing. You'd think with their overly expensive bowling prices they would try to fix some of these things... Do not recommend coming here. There are many other fun things to do in Big Bear.
  • Very Overcrowded, bad smelling, and dumpy. There was a half an hour wait to bowl, and the game room was more like a storage closet for broken machines. In addition, both pool tables were taken. If you don't like small children and being bored, don't go here.
  • When it doesn’t snow and you don’t know what to do, check out the bowling alley! Fun music and cosmic bowling and arcade games.
  • My kids have never been bowling, this was their first experience. Charming place, nice staff, plus they serve beer so that's great for the adults.
  • We like to get chicken salads from the snack bar and watch people bowl, while we eat. There is also a bar and a small video game arcade.
