Open Bowling

The Big Apple Fun Center offer 36 lanes of open bowling, all with the automatic bumpers on them for the children ages 12 years and younger only. This means that one family of 2 adults and 2 children under 12 years can bowl together as a family on one lane if they want. When the childrens names are activated, the bumpers will come up for them and when an adult bowls, the bumpers will go back down. Cool huh?

Cosmic Bowling

No matter what you call it ... Bowling under the Black Lights is more fun than any one person should be allowed.

For the Families ... We have a kid friendly Cosmic show that starts at Noon on Saturday and runs until 5 PM. This show will be cancelled if the center is hosting a tournament/league or other special event.

Please call to ensure open lanes are available.

  • Thursday - Saturday
  • After 10:00 PM
  • Crank up the tunes
  • Awesome light show

Call and ask for Chuck to drill and/or sell you equipment. Monday - Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM. Drilling is included in most of our bowling balls (inserts / grips are extra).

NEW ITEM: If you roll a ball that has lost its hook, come try our DETOX machine. See the video below. We have several bowlers who will testify to the positive results after a 15 minute process. Just think how much oil we can get out after a 30 minute session. Add a resurface to the DETOX and you are back to an almost new out of the box ball.
