Good find in town to pass some time and have a little laid back fun. Not a ton of lanes so you may be out of luck if they are busy but decent pricing and friendy staff. Would definitely go back when I'm in town!...More

Went here on a rainy night with our children and some friends and their children. It's a very small bowling alley. The balls constantly get stuck in the back of the alley and people have to retrieve them. It didn't ruin the fun though, the...More

Our family happened to be in Lake Placid when winter was a little slow in coming so we were searching for indoor activities. The bowling alley made for a fun afternoon. The children loved the strobe lights. The staff was very accommodating.
