I don't usually complain like this, but here I go:
It's a bowling alley I've been going to since I was a kid, it's sad to see it in this state. The 30-year old lanes are constantly breaking down to the point where games can stop for several minutes at a time. The electronic scoring equipment was great when it was new, I remember when they brought it in, but the monitors that it displays to are in terrible condition, many of them have color/stretch/resolution problems that are frustrating. On top of that, there are a few members of the staff that can be very rude. A few weeks ago some friends and I were bowling together because we hadn't seen each other for some time - one friend left without paying - the plan was, before we even began bowlin, that one of us was going to pay FOR him. One member of the staff approached me and asked me about him, I understood his concern but he was very rude about it, I ended up leaving the alley in a bad mood.
Today, I was thirsty and approached the desk to ask if they had bottled Sun Drop, the lady that answered me said "Yes, FOR A DOLLAR 75" (as if she was implying that I wasn't planning on paying for it. I suppose I was being a bit softskinned, but that put me in a bad mood, especially when I make a conscious effort at all times to make sure I'm paying the right amount for everything.
And to top it all off, just now as I'm writing this review, a staff member shut off our lane while we were in the middle of a game. Fantastic.
The plus side: The place is kept quite clean and well-stocked (minus their selection of bowling balls).
