Mid morning visit. $38 for 2 of us - 2 games. We had additional games at $10. Lane 12 was a bit problematic and staff helpful - eventually moved to lane 11. Coffees were ok. Not very busy . Loads of fun.

AMF Bowling Garden City is the best place to go as a group to have one or two rounds of indoor bowling. Great facilities, food and staff. Also, regular competitions and team events. A fun day or night out. Good parking.

It is a well organised place, popular with locals not only for one-off games but popular with clubs, and office-do's. The food is fairly varied and edible.
