“So much potential, but run down - Great laser tag!”
Review of Bowling Barn

Bowling Barn
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you like laser tag, great! My family of four had the arena all to ourselves. The people working there are very nice, but not many people were in there at all.

The "ice skating rink" - It's artificial. Falsely advertised and kind of something right out of the 1980's. The games are a mix of old and new. Not much is offered at the prize counter.

We were kind of disappointed. This place was listed in one of the top things to do in Big Bear and there was hardly anything to do inside. It appeared abandoned and nearly "bankrupt" looking. Two employees seemed to be all the whole place needed to run the video games, prize counter, laser tag and food counter.

The bowling alley was a small one at that. Nothing special. It's a bowling alley.

There is one bar inside the place.
Not much else to offer but a very hot laser tag experience and a video game of Deal or No Deal.

It was a great to get a few frames in between activities. Burgers were good too. Will come here again.

Everytime we go to Big Bear we realize that it is sooo boring at night. Maybe it is OK after a full day of skying in winter or hiking in summer but still, if you are on a small vacation here you want to make use of all your time.
This place offers you exactly that, a kind of entertainment that you can tune to the level of your energy. The bowling lanes are in good conditions and they also have a nice collection of music video clips that they show on the TVs spread around.
You can also try your Karaoke skills in the bar, if you feel up to it.

The staff was quick and friendly. The bar is kid friendly and the bowling and drinks were cheap. We had a great time here.

It is the most expensive bowling alley I've ever been too, and it's old, smells funny, and I would never take my eyes off of my children. But if you're up there in the winter, it's still bowling, and a nice alternative to the snow and cold.
