Chad Huggins

Always a good time.

Aleise Elsenboss

Nice staff. Could really use a facelift. You can tell it's a older bowling alley. Prices are decent. They also have additional games to play.

Justin Blake

Nancy Hernández


Not enough hoochies

Effie Collar

Jessica, Kevin, and Sydney are absolutely awesome. Great spot.

Miriam Lusk

We had fun bowling. Decent lanes.

Cassidy Carter

Came in at 8:45 (doors close at 10) and were refused service. The cashier turned away two groups of five people because it was a "slow night". Half of the lanes were full but they wanted to close at 9. After walking out another group of 5 were headed in. Ridiculous.

Dennis Heald

Fun times for all

William Morrissey

Patrick Solansky

Small place , over priced beer

Judy Andrews

Took granddaughter's went to the bathroom, it was nasty. Don't want to say why. We wanted to throw up and I know they know what I am talking about. I'm Not from here but everyone closes early. What's up with these town. Our fast-food places close at 11:00 or they stay open all night. The bowling alley closes at 9:00. I am shocked.

Budskrilla 2U

Great place. Always clean. Usually pretty busy. I'm sure when Alamo opens theirs, they won't be as busy. The one on base is good to.

My teenagers just got back from this establishment. The guy working the counter had them pay up front, and then made them pay again, claiming they hadn't paid. He told them a woman had taken their initial payment, when, in fact, he was the one who took their money. Management, I suggest you look into the person who was working. If you visit this establishment, get a written receipt for how much you've paid.

Clean, fun time.

george jensen

Came here as a kid when staying with grandparents and nothing has changed..small area on lanes but the bartender lady carries this place with her hospitality

Julian Osburn

Bryson Davis

We were led to believe our game would be only 14 dollars; a little low but, what can we expect. To shorten the story we ended up getting screwed out of 60 dollars. If possible I would give this buisness zero stars. 0 out of 10 would not recommend. Find something better to do than bowling here. In the long run you will have more fun playing cards or having conversations between you and your buddies while saving yourself the humility of being played as a fool.

Chris Wilbanks

Locals hangout

Andrew chavez

McKenzie Patterson

This place was not what I would expect of a bowling alley. No one was around to help us. The arcade is a sad little cluster of worn down outdated machines. And the place is dark and sad.

Edward Rede

For a little center it is very well run.

Gen Botella

Waw an awesome night at the Ruidoso bowling alley!!

paul shawn

Very cool place

Eli Farmer

We played pool then we did a bit of bowling and the service was superb

Will James

Smelled like feet!

Brady Bartolini

Food is typical for a bowling alley, lanes are good, shoes work, good choice of balls.

Mark Sanchez

Went in on March 4 2018 we traveled from Alamogordo to go bowling, i spent a lot of money as well as the two other family’s we went with! I expected to be treated like a human, i was hoping to be treated respectfully. They you guy who was working was extremely rude from the moment we walked in, to the moment i left! First he was rude taking payment! Second he was rude distributing the shoes to our party. Then i didn’t know the other family was gonna pay for there own lane, so i added them accidentally to our lane! I asked him could either delete the opponents not playing with us or reset computers on our lane! He literally rolled his eyes gasped his breathe. Asked me several time to repeat what i was asking like he didn’t understand and continued rolling his eyes and gasping. Like if i was bothering! Which i didn’t appreciate since i was a paying customer! I had to bite my tongue because it took everything in my soul not to rip into him with my rudeness. Then we asked him to lift the rails and was also extremely rude! At this point i realized not to deal with him anymore and to try and enjoy our time there since we did drive out of town! I had a good experience the first time i have gone there was a young lady working she was amazing but from here on out i will call before traveling that far for that kind of service.

Small place, 10 lanes, but lucky to have a bowling alley in such a small town. Lanes are in great shape, fairly easy oil pattern for good scores even if it's your first time there

Jaime Contreras

Sarah Lopez

We went in but dodnt actually bowl. It was really crowded and we had a large party

Morgan Hawkins

Angelo Reyes

It is a good place.

Douglas J Huston

Had a great time tonight. Those that were there all had a wonderful time and so encouraged by the strong family joy felt by all. A special thanks to Kevin, very friendly bartender, and his very efficient team for a fun filled evening.

Sean Kernohan

Carolyne Borunda

Expensive. Lol Snotty but nice

Kevin Stutzman

Nikki Longacre

klaire hopkins

Came here on vacation with family. Over an hour wait, they wouldn’t put us on the waiting list to bowl at all with over 2 hours left before closing. Tables were disgusting, bad service. Worst of all, came here the day after my 21st birthday with my VALID, UNEXPIRED Oklahoma ID, but I was not allowed to buy alcohol or sit at the bar because my ID is vertical. I’m legally 21, and there is no state law stating anything about needing a horizontal ID. overall I would never recommend

I love everything about this bowling alley! Great staff, bar, and amazing place for family fun. They also have very competitive league with some really great bowlers. They oil the lanes everyday with a spin on a house pattern that's a little more challenging if you hook your ball.

Randy Bouldin

We bowl in 3 different leagues every week and call Ruidoso Bowling Center our house. We can always count on the lanes to be in great shape for our league bowling nights and during the week for practice.

Yenia Perez

Helpful, accommodating staff. Clean restrooms and safe facilities. And lots of fun! Definitely family/kid friendly when we visited.

Hector Ricardo Salgado

Wesley Mitchell

Sandi Green

Everything was good until the strobe lights came on. They didn't act like they were concerned that a person with that sensitivity was wasn't league bowling so they should have turned them off. Other than that, its great! Good food. Good fun.

We got here at 5:00 pm and the staff said that the wait time was 2 hours, it is almost 8 and we still have 30 minutes to go, they said that they called our names 3 times but I heard everybody's name but ours and they gave our lanes to someone else, we are now tired and the staff is rather rude and lazy, 0/10 would not come again, much pain, so uncool

Reese Romines

Great place

Madmax1 Mauricio

Had lots of fun

Braden Davis

Earlier tonight some of my friends who I haven't seen in a long while met at this establishment to catch up over a couple games of bowling. When we got there we were charged twenty dollars for our first game. We played three games in total, but somehow when it came time to leave the twenty dollars had gone missing. We weren't able to get that back, and eventually just walked away. I will not be coming back to this establishment, and I recommend others do the same.

Refused to serve me alcohol because I was from Texas. After they took my money for my bowling game i was asked to leave by a very rude older woman. Avoid this place fellow Texans.

Jenny Red

Be careful. They will ask for money up front and forget that they took it.

belinda klein

Rich Dozier

Good family outing.

Sandoval Family

Gaming with Crispy

A man at the register told that our first game was going to cost about $14. So then we play a 3 games and then head back up to the register to pay for our other two games. Although the cashier told us that our total was going to be $65 and the original $14 wasn't there. We argued and the same man in the beginning told us a woman was working and she got the total "mixed up" Eventually we gave up and we never got air original money back.

Margie Bouldin

They employee's are all helpful and happy to work there.

Liz Sandoval

Rommel Maralit

1 dollar for a game of pool. Not bad. Always a fun time here. They serve good snacks too.

Adrian Gonzales

We were looking for something to do while visiting Ruidoso. We had a pregnant woman in our party so the cigarette smoke at the casinos prevented us from going there. This bowling alley had a separated smoking area so the establishment was smoke free which was awesome! It was really clean and organized. Staff was friendly and the beer waa reasonably priced. We had a great time and would visit again! Thanks!
