We wound up going to the one in Mount Morris instead. Not a bad little 8 lane alley. Some of the worst bowling I have ever done, but it was all about getting the kids out of the house for a little bit.
I used to bowl in the hallway as a kid all the time! Set up anything for pins, milk jugs, soda bottles, cans, whatever I could find. Then find a tennis ball, baseball, sometimes a basketball and wail away!
