We played a game of bowling. $18 per person for 1 game was a fair price for us. The theme and vibe of the place are 5-star worthy enough for me. The staff who attended us were accomodating also from the entrance to the bowling booth. Something we look for to feel welcomed or safe in an establishment like this. Thank you for a good experience.
