Fre­quent­ly Asked Ques­tions (FAQ) Here you will find answers to fre­quent­ly asked questions

  • How do I play a game of bowl­ing?
    A sin­gle game con­sists of 10 “frames”, with each frame con­sist­ing of two chances to knock down ten pins.
    If the play­er gets a strike in the tenth frame the play­er earns auto­mat­i­cal­ly two bonus shots.
    If the play­er gets a spare in the tenth frame the play­er earns auto­mat­i­cal­ly one bonus shots.
  • How many peo­ple fit on a lane?
    For the ulti­mate bowl­ing expe­ri­ence with­out long wait­ing, we rec­om­mend four to six peo­ple per game. You can play with 6 – 8 per­sons on each lane, there are large sit­ting areas available.
  • What is the ide­al age to start bowl­ing?
    We rec­om­mend a min­i­mum age of ca 5 years. With the bumper sys­tem the kids are able to hit the pins, – the light­est bowl­ing ball weights 5 lb’s with three or five holes.
  • Why do I have to wear bowl­ing shoes at the bowl­ing alley?
    1. Bowl­ing shoes have a sole that allows slid­ing when releas­ing the bowl­ing ball.
    2.  Sneak­ers or indoor shoes are not per­mit­ted (and not suitable).
    3.  The approach­es have a spe­cial coat­ing, which can be dam­aged with oth­er shoes. Bowl­ing shoes pro­tect the approaches
  • How are points deter­mined in bowl­ing?
    All our lanes come with a com­put­er­ized sys­tem that auto­mat­i­cal­ly cal­cu­lates your score for you.
    A strike is when you knock down all ten pins at your first attempt in a sin­gle frame. A strike counts ten points plus the num­ber of pins you knock down for the entire next frame.
    A spare is when you fail to knock down all ten pins at your first attempt in a sin­gle frame, but man­age to clear the remain­ing pins at your sec­ond attempt. A spare counts ten points plus the num­ber of pins you knock down for your first attempt at the next frame. If not all pins are knocked over in a frame, each pin you knock down earns you a point.
  • Ball weight!
    The weight of the bowl­ing ball is between 5 — 16 pounds (about 2.25 to about 7.2 kg).
    In our bowl­ing alley the bowl­ing balls have dif­fer­ent col­ors. Each of these col­ors rep­re­sents a cer­tain weight. Based on the col­or you can always find your cho­sen weight at any time. Many recre­ation­al bowlers think that a high­er ball speed means that more pins will be knocked over. That is not cor­rect.!! As a result, the ball is much less pre­cise and lands fre­quent­ly in the gut­ter, since the play­er unin­ten­tion­al­ly gives the bowl­ing ball an uncon­trolled spin.

  • What is Bumper-Bowl­ing?
    Bowl­ing bar­ri­ers known as bumpers are placed at the edges of the lane and it keeps errant balls out of the gut­ter. Since the bowl­ing ball can­not slip into the gut­ters, there is no frus­tra­tion or dis­ap­point­ment and the kids can enjoy their game.
  • What is a PRO-SHOP?
