Spare Time bowling alley, spared nothing when it came to the renovation. They have it all! Starting with the computerized bumpers on the lanes. That's right. My 7 year old daughter and I bowled on the same lane. She had bummers up for her turn and then the computer put them down for mine (sweet!). The state-of- the-art scoring system that handled that request is totally cool and easy to use. Our 10 year old and his friend negotiated their way right through it. It has great graphics and helpful tips to to get your bowling back on track should you end up with the dreaded split.

We were there on a Friday afternoon and despite school being out and multiple birthday parties going on, it was not a problem to get two of the 36 lanes to ourselves. The facility is really clean and well lit. The were plenty of light weight balls to be found for our small kids and the staff was really helpful.

We didn't go into the Sports Grille, but the menus were laying on the tables by the bowling lanes and I took a look. Not just pizza and hot dogs. It was quite extensive: wings, pot stickers, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, hot dogs, personal pizzas, salads, sandwiches, etc..

Then of course there is the arcade. Think Pizza Putt but smaller. Same deal, token for the games. Your kid wins tickets which he then turns in for cheap little toys or candy. Hard to escape as it is right by the exit.

It was a fun filled afternoon on a rainy day. They had everything, food, bowling and arcade games in a nice clean facility. That being said without our coupons, it would have been an expensive venture. Bowling games can rack up pretty quickly. Make sure to print the web coupon for a free game. You still have to rent shoes ($3.50/each).

Our boys love to go bowling. The fun graphics on the screens help keep them entertained even when it's not their turn. The TVs in between lanes also kept my husband interested as he didn't have to miss the big game. The arcade is a little pricey but we did feel the prizes were a little better than other arcades we have visited.

We've had company parties and personal experiences here. It's always a good time!

We recently had my daughter's 5th birthday party at SpareTime and it was the easiest birthday party ever! I'm sure I would have spent more money having the party at my house, making it also a great value! Everything was so well organized and entertaining. We will definitely be back!

I had never subscribed to the "packaged" birthday parties and always have gone out of my way to create unique birthdays for my kids. However, our busy lives were taking over and my son's 10th birthday was approaching and I didn't have time to plan anything too elaborate. So when he suggested Spare Time and we only had a few days to plan, I gave in and looked into the party options. Spare Time make it very easy to select the type of party you'd like to host there, right on their website. Between laser tag, the game room and bowling you've got great options and combinations. We picked 2 1/2 hours of "Party Time" which included 2 hours of bowling, pizza, $5 cards for each child to spend in the game room plus a game of laser tag. I added an additional game of laser tag for each child, selected the kind of pizza, opted out of gift bags, and submitted my request. Done!

When party time arrived, 12 boys between the ages of 7 and 12 had an absolute blast. The customer service was terrific and it was the easiest party I have ever had. I applaud Spare Time for providing a very fun place for kids and adults, and for making the birthday party experience such a breeze for the parents!

This was the second year we held a birthday party for my daughter at Spare Time, and this was at HER request. All details were taken care of by our hostess making for a stress free party (Thank you Paige!!) Bowling and game room games were a lot of fun and the laser tag arena was awesome!! Well worth the price! Thank you Spare Time!

We hosted a Laser-Tag birthday party for my 8-year-old son. It was very well-organized and super fun for the boys. Every aspect was choreographed perfectly (2 games of laser tag, pizza/drinks, time in the arcade, cake/singing, and one final game of laser tag-- all for only $20/kid).

We recently went to SpareTime to celebrate my daughter's 11th birthday. Her friends had an absolute blast! One of her friends even said she wants her party at SpareTime. Thank you to Jamie and his staff for taking excellent care of us. I personally think the bowling pin souvenir was a great touch. My husband and I were very impressed.
