“Needs to be really redecorated and refurbished...”
Review of Bowlplex

Bowlplex
Ranked #7 of 13 Fun & Games in Poole
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 October 2013

The place could be nice but it needs to be renovated and redecorated. The pin picker-upper brakes all the time. The lights go off etc... The lanes are too close to each other so when the place is full there is too many people around.

We visited here on a drizzly Monday afternoon early in August. Immediately, we were confronted with flyers apologising that the airconditioning had broken and they were waiting for an engineer. We booked our three games and ordered some incredibly slow fast-food while we waited our turn for a lane. Lane 6 duly became available and we started our games. However, the pin picker-upper malfunctioned on a regular basis and we had to go to find (elusive) staff to reset it on probably at least 15 separate occasions. Very frustrating! Especially when the venue was getting hotter and hotter. Also there were families with several small children in the lanes either side of us and the children were wandering in to our lanes - potentially very dangerous. Whilst I appreciate that the parents should have kept them under control, there were no staff around to advise anyone about the rules of the game and the venue. We enjoyed our games in spite of all this but I feel the venue could do better with more staff and attention to detail.

Lively atmosphere - excellent way to socialise with people you don't see often. Very competitive and enjoyable time

We went as 2 adults and a 4 year old and found it very reasonably priced and clean. We liked the selection of arcade games to play afterwards and all the staff where nice.

My wife and I went bowling for the first time in ages and we really enjoyed our games and thought it was pretty good value. Its great now you can (generally) wear your own shoes.

It was half-term so pretty busy but we had a really good time and will definitely go back.
