The other reviews seem quite old, I don't know if this place made any changes since the last reviews or not. We were in Rockford visiting family, had a group of 12-15 bowlers-adults and children- we used 4 lanes. It was $2/game. You can't really beat that price. The place looks like every other bowling alley I have ever been... More

This place has lots of different leagues going on all throughout the week and the leagues range in size from small to pretty big. It's got older equipment but the lanes are what really matter and the lanes here are well cared for.

This place was a great stop but looks like over the years time has taken away from it. There were several open lanes and I was told there was issues with those-waited for 30 minutes and a family of 10 arrived and were given lanes right away-even the ones marked "broken".

PROS: located right beside Cherryvale Mall; free and abundant parking; decent food (although the wait time can be very long- 20 minutes for a large pizza!); average to older condition of equipment, monitors, shoes; clean locker rooms and bathrooms. CONS: older equipment ; very long wait time for food (see above).

I don't like to bowl here or meet friends for the Friday night bands in the bar. There are much better places with better atmosphere

It is a very nice bowling alley. We have done here for years! They give you socks if you do not have any to wear while bowling which is very nice.
