I have been bowling at Thunderbowl since they opened their doors in 1999 and can say that this is a great place to bowl. I have always been treated great whenever I go there. Ross, the manager, is the most professional center manager I have met in all my years of competitive league bowling. He, in my opinion is one of the hardest working guys I have ever seen in a bowling center. If something breaks down he will make sure it is fixed as fast as possible so as not to keep the league bowlers waiting. If you're looking to join a league, this is the place. The pro shop, Revolutions, is something I can do without. If you want a pro shop with an operator who will tell you you're ball is drilled all wrong, this is the place. It's only open about 2 hours a day and the prices seem high.

The staff is rude and could care less about the patrons! The lanes are always down! It is 150 degrees in there in the summer! I would recommend going somewhere else!

Well i have worked at Thunder Bowl for a couple of months. I do the Birthday Parties! I really love the job and talking, getting to know the parents and honestly, making it the easiest way for them to watch there kids and also enjoy having a good time. I believe treating those who are willing to spend money on a 2-hr party, with yes respect, is the best way to get those customers returning not just for parties, but to bowl in general. I would say some workers don't take there job seriously, because there older and think that they can do and say what they want, because in reality no one really gets to the point to were they want to talk to the owner and say, hey this isn't the right way to run a proper business. I recommend, if some one treats you ignorantly, your spending your money, let everyone and anyone know, that this is wrong and very disrespectful, because sooner or later it will get to them and if they cant find it in there heart to be just a genuine nice human being, don't take it personally just because they cant stand that there source of income is a managing children's birthday parties and not having a real profession. Give thunder bowl a chance, but dont let anyone disrespect you!

I used to like this alley until recently, when we had taken a school group on an outing and were met with a rather rude employee. He spoke ignorantly and with attitude to several chaperones without cause, and then to the disappointment of 20 6-year-olds, abruptly shut down the lanes without warning. We had arranged for 2 games of bowling but were told there was a time limit, something that was not mentioned at the time of booking the event. SoO if you are planning a party, be sure and get the terms in writing, although I'd personally patronize another alley.

On Friday and Saturday, if you do not get there early, prepare to wait!! I'm talking at that minimum 1/2hr-45 minutes. They have a lot of lanes, but there are just a lot of people wanting to bowl. Also, I've had to wait for league bowlers to finish up before the public was allowed to bowl.
It's a very nice facility and has an adjoining bar for those over 21. Lots of lanes and on the weekend it's cosmic bowling. Good value for your money.
