Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Disappointing to bring the family here and wait at counter until the two rough looking men finished their chat, no friendly welcome just “tap here” no advice on shoes, bowling balls. (Lighter ones under the counter). The game continually broke and needed service, coffees took forever.
Very underwhelming and in need of some friendly warm and helpful staff. Such a pity

Looking to spend some time out of the house (iPad zone) but it’s raining ... cinema? No ... ten pin bowling ... yay. Couple of hours fun (& some learning to cope with failure ha). Enjoyable sport also to spectate on. Thank goodness each kid got a strike to happily recall to Mum later that night.

If you're looking for something to do indoors or at night with the kids, this may be worth the trip.
Kids can use ramps or bumpers and there are plenty of light bowling balls for these to use. It's all automated, so once everyone gets their name in - there's nothing more to do, than simply have your turn.
Friendly staff, but a busy place. We must have arrived on a bowling league night. Several lanes full and the serious bowlers were alongside us in other lanes eclipsing our meagre scores. We had fun!

Had a good time at Oz Ten pin. The venue is in good condition...not tired like so many other ten pin venues. Good fun, clean and plenty of lanes so you shouldn't miss out.

A great place to take the kids with lots of lanes and a huge space. A lovely lady there Robyn couldn't be more helpful.

My family had enjoyed a wonderful day in Anglesea & decided to make the most of our trip back to Melbourne by stopping via Geelong for a game of ten pin bowling & some dinner.

[Venue & Games Area]: This was our first visit to this alley & immediately we noticed the giant bowling pin sitting upon a pole out the front. Whilst in itself a fun reminder of the mid 1960's when bowling was in its heyday, the structure is in very poor condition & desperately needs attention.
= From the vacant car park through to the run down & dull building façade the overall & immediate impression received was one of abandonment & I would not have been surprised if a tumble weed had of rolled right passed us!

Once we ascertained that the business was indeed open we ventured in determined to still make the most of our decision to stop here & enjoy some family time. To the right of the main counter an area has been set up in a mini 'Time Zone' alcove where you can have an electronic game of 'Deal or No Deal', simulate a car race in the 'Daytona USA' or 'Shoot some Hoops'. All of these games cost money of course so you may wish to take sufficient coinage. Not all of the games were in operation at the time of our visit & yet again the whole arrangement felt unpleasant & worn.
= Further along and to the left of the entry was a small 'roundabout' which consist of three [3] animals upon which young ones can sit & have a ride, presumably again for a fee.

[Staff & Service]: The main counter was staffed by a young man whom quite frankly was incredibly rude & displayed an abrasive demeanour. His attitude & speech was so disagreeable that we actually left the building & headed back to the car preparing to leave.
= Our group consisted of three [3] adults, a ten [10] year old & a teenager & as the 'kids' had been excited about going ten pin bowling since we suggested it & the evening was approaching, majority rules & we did go back in & organised for two games each.

**Prices here are a bit ridiculous and the only benefit at the time was that they had a special deal for school holidays. Any other time we would have to say this complex is not worth the money they asked for.

[Décor & Atmosphere]: My husband & I are huge fans of anything retro & from the horrid picture carpets through to the disco balls we found the interior décor to be evocative of decades gone by when bowling was "the coolest thing to do". The lanes themselves were fine & the bumpers - [thankfully for some of us] - worked well so there is some potential here if the Managers & Owners decide to lift their game.

**[Summary]**
Despite the colourful tones throughout & the draw of ten pin bowling itself there is nothing endearing or attractive one can really emphasise that will encourage our fellow travellers to make a special trip here at the moment when there are other bowling alleys around.
= As hard as I try to bring out the positives I keep on getting drawn back to the overall atmosphere of listlessness experienced during our visit. The building & facilities definitely could do with renovating & everywhere we looked we noticed worn & tattered furniture. .
= Give the giant ten pin at the door a fresh lick of paint, arrange for more natural light to be let in & repair any of the games that aren't currently functioning. Consider encouraging and / or employing staff that understand the importance of first impressions & customer service.
Once the overriding atmosphere of boredom is attended to & the staff have adopted a more welcoming & bright tone then Oz Tenpin in Belmont may be worth recommending.

Thank you for reading this review, we hope that is has been helpful.
