But, what if it's really busy?
Don't worry! Once you arrive, you can check in at the front desk and put your name on the wait list. There's plenty to do while you're waiting though, we have arcade games, pool tables & air hockey, food & drinks and lounge spaces where your group can hang out before you bowl!
