The management at Burlington bowl absolutely discriminate against kids and as a kid I know that is true. The power went out because of something the happened outside the building and they were giving all the adults there money back even thought we payed for unlimited bowling until close and when we tried to get our money back( the website said the we could play until close) they said oh sorry and basically pushes us off the side hoping we would go away. The prices are way to high for every thing from bowling to food and they make you pay extra for a crummy "glow in the dark"service. The machines are from the 1900s and don't work that well. I would not recommend you go there unless you want to have a bad time total disapproval/disappointment.

The staff was friendly and helpful enough but the food and drinks were over priced and not very good. We went there with the kids and they had a great time bowling. That in itself was enough to put a smile on our faces. Will be going back again but this time somewhere else first.

Very poor management, rude and clueless about acceptable customer service let alone good customer service. We were told no outside drinks, when we explained it's water and it clearly looked like it, the 'manager' said "we have no way of confirming it is, and what's wrong with our water" ... seriously?! If it is a policy of the place, that's fine, but you can convey that same message politely and use reasonable judgment to implement the policy. To be fair the girls working at the counter did a much better job and were more helpful than the so called manager.

The place is dated, 'Glow in the dark bowling' is more like 'Bowl in the dark', yet you pay extra for the supposedly 'Glow in the dark' option. A disappointing experience overall, will not be returning. Any other bowling establishment would probably be a better option!
