We had no trouble getting a lane on a Friday night which added to having a great time. The shoes were nice and fit well. They were in great shape and didn’t stink…lol Of course, you can find all weights of bowling balls to suit your strength. They offer what looks like a plastic slide for kids to roll the ball down the lane.

The decor is great with bright colors, comfortable couches, and tables. The lanes are lined with colored lights that change constantly, as well as the area the pins sit. The colors change across the entire alley so it makes a rainbow effect.

Gahanna also offers more that includes a concession to get food and drink. There is also a bar to get alcoholic beverages. There are several arcade games to keep the kids occupied. The games work by winning tickets and exchanging them for prices.

Make memories not excuses!
