Had a lot of fun, but holy moly was it expensive!!!! 50$ to rent a lane for an hour, and took them for ever to make the expensive sub par food. After we were done bowling took the to the kids to the arcade where we spent another fortune. This place is fun but be prepared to spend some money!!!$$!!!!!!!!!... More

We came to town in a snowstorm and decided to go here for some entertainment and the place is huge with bowling (both size balls) laser tag, and arcade. There were bumper cars but we didn't use them. Bowling was good with the deals they have. Our son loved the laser tag. Arcade was large, but a little pricey. The... More

What a riot! It's full sized balls. The regular bowling, glow in dark bowling, and they'll even fill the guts' up to prevent gutter balls.

Visited on a busy Saturday, and had a short wait for a lane, but had fun playing in the arcades which the kids enjoyed and the card payment and ticket scheme seemed to work easily. Bowling was fun but the bumpers didn't go up and down for each player so we all had to have the bumpers up which was... More

My kids think that candle-pin bowling one of the most exotic things they've ever seen (it's not common where we live), so almost every time the family visits Dover, there's a plea to come here. And so we do. I'm always disappointed to see the number of candle-pin lanes shrink down further--the relatively recent bumper cars took out another six... More

The kids always have a good time here and there are some good deals on certain nights. The bathrooms are FILTHY....... I can't mark it average with such dirty bathrooms. And the staff really has no idea what is going on.

This is extremely fun and budget friendly. The laser tag game was very fun, and well timed. My only complaint is that they bathrooms were not maintained very well.
