We had a special all night package with free pizza. The family enjoyed the games and we ate a lot of pizza, had real fun. They also have an arcade, so we spend a lot of hours at this entertainment place.

Spare Time is a great bowling alley with a nice family atmosphere. It is located just off the interstate, making it convenient for travelers. The rental balls are really nice (and nicely organized), which may seem trivial, but it's definitely a plus for me!

This was the cleanest bowling alley I've ever been to. Friendly and accommodating staff. The kids had a great time both bowling and playing arcade games. There were mostly decent prizes and not just junk. Did not eat the food, but the menu looked good.
