I purchased tickets for the Bowlmor NYE 2017 function via Balldrop.com and wanted to provide a summary of our experience for others who may consider this event if held for future New Years eves. We were a group of 4 and purchased the Ultra VIP tickets. The VIP line was moving slower that the general admission line but luckily we... More

We were just looking for something fun to do in Times Square on a rainy day and we found this cool place. The atmosphere is super fun and entertaining as soon as you walk in the door. It was great to bowl and play the arcade games - even for being an adult. It's an accommodating spot as well -... More

The worst experience of my life happened to be the New Year's Eve party but I am glad it ended before the new year started and came out of that place. I understand surge pricing but for a new year event this place was worst with no proper food items on the buffet and no place to sit, this place... More

Very nice place for supper or end of day drinks and appetizers. Very cool bowling alley with many different theme lanes. Great for the whole family, you'll have a blast.

Great place to go have fun but if you are a serious bowler, as a sport, and not just for entertainment this is not the place for you. The lanes are not oiled and approaches are not kept clean. could see this is a great place to just hang out, eat drink .

Be very careful..... I was forced to book a lane (with Gwen at Times Square) as an event though I was bowling with just a few people. I was charged over $200!!! When I walked into the establishment, the prices for walk-ins were no more than $15 per person. When I asked to cancel, no one, not even the manager... More

Good for large group bonding over bowling. The food is slightly above average for 'entertainment' venues (ping pong parlours, bowling alleys), but it essentially consists of pretty lousy bar food (pizzas, tacos, over-dry sliders, etc).

We popped in for a couple of games whilst walking around Times Square. The lanes were separated out into different areas and was much larger than expected. You can order food and drink direct to the lane and choose to play another game right from the lane too so you can stay as long as you like and don't have... More

We stopped by to claim our free game included with our New York pass. We was limited on time and only played the one game so I cant comment on prices in general. What I would say is the staff were polite and welcoming and I love the way that different areas are themed with different areas of New York.... More

Good facility with updated equipment. Price reasonable considering it's located in the heart of the city. Observed a lot of families and play date excursions during the week. Receptive and responsive staff but the arcade was definitely a rip-off.recommend their French fries, strawberry lemonade and soda twists.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
