I've heard the pizza here is to die for. And I am not kidding.

Though it is called "Gahanna Lanes" it boasts more than lanes. It's for parties, golf, socialization, fraternization, gaming, eating...

It does not look impressive on the outside. Somehow I get the feeling this will change in a few years. But go go in and it's a'ight. They are chill and non-invasive when they talk to you. I have had friends that say they assume too much while looking at you. My friend with a broken arm was automatically charged for bumpers and only realized it when she got there and didn't want to have the trouble of taking them off. And I overheard a mother with her handicapped child complaining they got bumpers when they didn't need them.

Prices are great and leagues are abound. I find that many times it is unnecessary to call for availability, but when I DON'T call, I can't bowl! Sometimes I just go but have it in my mind to go chill at a bar instead.

Rarely is there a group of overly rowdy people. It's a great family place. Automated bowling. Breaking down happens maybe 7% of the time. I once played a really strange bowling game here.

There is hip, modern music most of the time (always good music no matter what) and young people working the desk.

To bowl, you saw how many are bowling, and if you need shoes and whether or not you want bumpers. It's a decent amount of money and you can play many games a day.

There are television screens that animate your bowling prowess. You'll see what I mean when you go.

When you're done bowling, you can go up and pay for another game if you wish. Otherwise, if you have another game left, follow the more than easy on-screen "instructions". More like command!

People do go here for the food. I am not sure even Gahanna Lanes knows how good their food is. It is one of the only places in town where you can self-serve yourself 1 ice cream instead of 6 in a box. And I do believe they make pizzas right there, though most likely they get pre-made sauce!

Balls are everywhere. You may need to get lower weighed balls at the desk, depending on the situation.

The place is a bit glitzy. A bit retro. A bit rundown. A bit top of the line. It's a bit of everything. It is a symbol of Gahanna.

Since it became smoke-free, it has become a wonderful bowling experience and I am sure many people are elated.

When you are done bowling, there is no problem with you and friends just sitting there, talking. If you want, you can even just hang out in the place; no need to pay. Oh, you just put the shoes on the desk. No need to talk to anyone. You'll learn if you should order your shoes up, down or at the size you usually take. I find myself personally ordering down a size.

I always find a great place to park. Sometimes I don't understand why the good places are free and the bad places are taken, even when it's crowded. Maybe you can go here and figure that out!

So if you feel like having Gahanna fun, or you're coming back from college and need a dose of Gahanna, stop here for a bowl!

Gahanna Lanes is a good place to go for good fun. It is hardly ever very crowded. The snack bar has a good varioty of food and the staff is very friendly. The bar was recently redone and it is said by staff that it will have another pool table added and possbly a jukebox that downloads your song of choice. It is a no smoking center. Their effects they turn on very often making bowling a blast. With the 3 big projection screens that play cable television and music videos and their colorful lights. If your looking for some nice family friendly fun this is the place!

PROS: Clen air, great effects, nice new bar
CONS: Not a very big arcade

The best thing that can be said for this bowling alley is that you can almost always get a lane quickly. They also have dollar jello shots some nights, which makes for a fun evening. The arcade isn't great, but the lanes are well kept up and there are plenty of kids size balls if you're taking children.

PROS: Open Lanes, Dollar Jello Shots
CONS: Smokey -But that should be fixed soon

Gahanna lanes is so tight. My friends and I have been going there since April. every Friday night is midnight bowling (midnight-2:30). They play loud requested music and have disco lights and everything. it's so cool and a great way for you to cut loose and have a ball
