Ok, I bowled here and it was terrible. It made bowling feel like a job. A real dump. I was on a league and then the league just died. I ordered food numerous times but the last time I got so ill I knew it was serious. I had extreme pain in my lungs after eating fries and the pain lasted for the entire nite. Never in my life have I had this before and not since. I am glad I recovered. I absolutely hate this place and am so glad its GONE. I saw that it has been leterally boarded up. Worst place in Ankeny.

Feel bad giving such a poor review--the people there were perfectly nice. Not super friendly, but nice enough. This bowling alley is just run down and needs some updating. We had a small kid‘s birthday party (2 lanes) and the pins had to keep being reset, over and over again. The kids still had fun, but they definitely were ready to be done after one game. It started to get frustrating for them, too, that the pins weren‘t being reset automatically much of the time. It seems like a city as large as Ankeny could really support a nice, updated bowling alley. My kids would much prefer to go someplace like Bass Pro Shops but we needed something in Ankeny for our party.

Just a horrible place with rotten pinsetters that break down all the time and unplayable lanes. They should flatten it and turn it into a Walgreen‘s

Fun but expensive. Go only during specials.

Had a great time, went for an elementary school PTO special, staff was great, especially with our young bowlers. They were very helpful, and had lightweight balls for the kids.
