Chris Hall

First time at Sparetimes and seemed like a nice bowling alley. Lanes were in good shape and there is also a bar, small arcade, and several pool tables. Had a good time. Recommend.

Alicia Griffin

I attended a Bowl-a-thon there for people with disabilities but I wasn't able to finish playing because when it was time to change sides I was not able to change sides to to limited space (I am a wheelchair user). There was a handicap accessible bathroom, however very limited space if you need help. Also the pizza tasted like cardboard. The only thing that saved this review from being a 1 star is that the game room was in operation so I was able to play air hockey. Unfortunately that is the only enjoyment that I had during my visit.

Erica Barnes

I had a great time. Friendly service. Set up is geared more towards small groups in the bar area. Drinks were great!

Christine Baxter

Charles Dales

Had a great time with friend and kids.

Racheal Maurice

I took my nephew and it was his first time. He really enjoyed it and the staff was super friendly and helpful. He was so excited and had so much fun that he wanted to stay all day. I never thought that a 4 year old would almost beat me at bowling. In my defense I was more concerned with making sure he had fun.

Leah Williams

Not bad and great prices

Christopher Backmon


Michael Woodall

Had a good time here. Went on a Friday afternoon and it was relatively empty. Staff was friendly, but the prices seemed expensive for 2 people on a lane for an hour. With shoes it was around 40 bucks. The electronics running the lanes were very simple to use and were not frustrating at all. The snack bar had beer, and it was reasonably priced, but it seemed stale or old. The one thing that I was disappointed about was the limited number of ball weights. There were 3 or 4 weights for house balls. Overall a good experience.

Brooke Quinn

Staff was nice and professional. Fun atmosphere. A clean environment.

J Calloway

Stuck in time but what bowling alley isn't. Still good bowling great glow bowl. Decent pool tables although the jukebox is a bit overpriced. Nice place to take family or chill with friends!

Manal White

Love going here. I love the old school vibe with the updated technology. My husband and I had our first date here. Beer selection is good and the billiards section is very inexpensive.

Gene Powell

Great place. Reminded my wife and I of the bowling alleys of our childhood. Staff was friendly and accommodating, and the prices were very reasonable. We had a blast and when the days get too hot or cold and the kids need an activity indoors, this provides a great family environment. We have been to the place in town center, and though it was nice, it just didn't give off the family atmosphere we were looking for. This is now our go-to spot for a family day out at the lanes.

James Pettway

Only 3 stars because it was $60 for 3 people. That’s expensive. Besides that, everything else was good. You can select the music you want to listen to. The lanes are well kept and the staff was friendly.

Teresa Jackson

I love bowling. This establishment is a good bowling alley, however, the temperature is usually too hot for league bowling. Request to make it cooler is met with resistance. My advice, dress for summer, even in the winter.

Jessica Dance

I love sparetumes, great deals and fun place for the whole family

Jefe Beard Company

Need updating. Good prices

Maria Mosquera

Been here a couple of times with my family. Kids love it. Had a very enjoyable private time. Food was good. Every time we drive by, the kids want to come! Thank you for such a pleasant time!

Mahogany Lailah

Good Music and always a fun time

Armando Rosell

Lucyp Payne

grayling drummond

Planned an event, the facility look clean and well lit, nice snack bar, bowling balls and shoe rental is reasonable, will followup after the event. After our event review, we enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality Spare time rendered to our event, all the comments from our group was favorable. The staff personnel did a wonderful job.

Sharalee Jones

Great price & good music

Chanel Green

There's much work to be done in the area of customer service.

Andrew Evans

A family friendly atmosphere

Lawrence Rouse

First time that I've gone for Glow Bowling. Check in is at 9 but lanes don't turn on til 10. Cashier didn't make it clear that he meant NO bowling at all until 10. I was thinking lights. When I checked about the balls, he had a terrible attitude.

Iris Booker

My husband is retired military and the bowling alley on post is closed on Sundays! We were happy to find a place to bowl after church. The staff was friendly and told us about the special pricing for military service members. We had a great time.

Kyn Adams

Helpful staff, pro shop, could use some updated pool tables but very well kept area, the pizza was great and actually bowling was what you'd expect from your average bowling alley

Jay Lewis

Fun family atmosphere and great prices!!!

Theodore Belcher

This is a great place for fun bowling and a great place for family and friends fun atmosphere...

Mendy Gonzales

Best and easiest kid birthday party ever! Our host was amazing! I didn't have to do anything but bring the kid and the cake!

Preston Worshim

Small, but it was glow bowl night and family and I had a blast.

Kim Cuddihy

Wonderful service! We had a great time!

kairu kazuto

Bowling is fun! This place is a bit expensive, though.

Eric Ford

HU Homecoming Bowling party each year. Good times

lydia lafont

Fun with my grandkids

Loretta Brown

My family league bowls there for years now

Ron Webb, Jr.

There were many open lanes available, but yet the staff decided to put the four of us next to three lanes of screaming kids with minimal adult supervision. The lane conditions were fine, but we couldn't bowl consistently because the kids were just running up and throwing their ball no matter who else was on the approach.

Koren Rivera

My sister, daughter, and I took my grandchildren, nieces, and nephew. They had a blast. The gentleman at the desk for shoes was very patient with our group. Would definitely go back again. #kidsbowlfree


Great Bowling alley

obrien Gossage

Fun and great staff, but there was horrific ignorant group that ruined the time for several of us. Sparetime employees did not hold them accountable for their actions, nor did they remove them from the facility, subjecting us all to the continued disruption and inappropriate behavior. Not sure if we will go back because we did not feel safe.

Sandra Pearson

Great time watching bowling yesterday

Rebekah Angove

Classic family fun!! Go when there are no leagues and you will have a blast.

Online Marketing Shark

How has no one mentioned the screens are cool you get take a picture of yourself and make a silly bowling character to use for your game! They also have disco lights at night for the 3D bowling so fun!!

Madi Leijona

Had my daughter's party there. Staff was friendly and food was good. Prices were decent too.

Arial J. Jones

This bowling alley could definitely use some updates! Visited on a Friday during the day and it was pretty empty which was nice for our crowd. The lanes were a little wonky and the scoring messed up a couple of rounds but the kids didn't notice. They don't have shoes smaller than a child's 9. If your child has a smaller foot they will allow you to bowl in your own shoes though. Just make sure they don't have on flip flops as one in our crowd did. There is electronic scoring and an arcade albeit small. This location also participates in kidsbowlfree. Which means that when you sign up, your kids get 2 free games a day all summer long. All you pay for is shoe rental ($2.25). Parents can be added to the pass as well for an additional fee

Brandon Bledsoe

Best prices in Bowling ever. Love the unlimited bowling package

Tattooed CuppyCakez

Love this place. Bar, food, arcade center, and pool tables inside as well. These options are great when everyone doesn't want to bowl. Something for everyone.

Niya's Life

Love the after dark portion, but food n drinks re expensive

The Ford Triplets

pool room was dirty thought I may catch something touching the poles

william keller

Went there during the day. The crazy lights a music were off. There was some back ground noise the whole time I was there. I was in sticker shock for the $12 person for one game. It did include the shoe rental. It was an interesting day.

Tyret Fisher

Nice place for a nice frienda out get together. Bartender makes very strong drinks and that is a plua for the area and they were reasonably priced. Staff was friendly ans accommodating. Nice drama free atmosphere with a mixed crowd of people.

Good music, good food, and good drinks. Even a good place for the family.

Yolanda Snyder-Blocker

Local Favorite Spot. Its back in the cut but No worries, the atmosphere is pretty nice. The only thing missing is the giant screens on at the end of the lanes. But its Family Friendly and the staff is pretty helpful. No reason to go anywhere else.

Cedric Wright

Sparetimes is a great place to bring the family out for open play. The bowling leagues are fun and full of competition. I enjoy the bowling tournaments hosted. The Pro Shop technicians will have you pleased with your new Bowling equipment.

Katina Motton

Had a great time. Friendly atmosphere

Just Me N mines

Only thing I didn't like was the pizza. Kids didn't like it either. Got a pitcher of minute made fruit punch. No ice. It got warm quickly. Besides that it was ok.

Nasir Enterprises Empowering Encouraging Educating

Awedome place

Ken Aydlott

Used a Groupon for the children. 3 hrs of bowling. Shoes only $2 want for them. Wonderful service from employees. Excellent condition of alleys. We will definitely return.

Christopher Rogers

Haven't been there since the 90s. Still a fun place to go

Zion Smith


Priya 936

Great place. The staff was friendly, and I had no complaints bowling there.

Denise Mason

This is a nice place to bring family and have a great time, there is a small arcade room for the little ones who may not like to bowl. They have a great selection of adult drinks as well if you're into that.

Evan Mcclintick

Good onion rings

Gary Webb

attended kids birthday party everyone had a very good time

John Baptiste

Every year we have our homecoming party here and every year they understaff the bar which leaves patrons frustrated and money out of their till. Outside of that the facility has been updated and looks good.

LaRoux Meeker

Great place for family and friends to get together

Ginny Hunt

Very nice staff. Nice looking, clean place. Lanes are well kept. Very enjoyable bowling experience for me

Natasha Edwards

Very entertaining. Fun for children and adults

Amicia Tucker

My kids love to go here

Kimberly Bradford

Had trouble with the scoreboard adding extra pins, and they finally had to switch our lanes. It was ok. We were I think on lane 13.

Autumn Savin

We did night glow bowling for a birthday party and I had a great time!!! Decent beer prices and nice cold pitchers. We ordered a pizza that wasn't bad either. Overall a really fun experience. Definitely hard to find at night though so pay attention!! It's behind the Walmart

Kathy Stallings

Clean friendly security at door, variety of things to do.

Latonya Lanier

Kind staff. Helpful. Clean place. Highly suggested

Cherry Chesso

Very knowledgeable and great customer service.

Carlos Mercado

My daughter was invited here for a birthday party, the kids had 4 lanes and enough space to run around. The only thing that I didnt like was they had brought the adults food before the kids food. I do like the fact that they ask each kid what they would like to eat and not just one thing for the party.

Shakeyah Nesbitt

Some Staff members are rude. Overall had fun with the girls.

Myra Smith

Always a great spot to get some fun in no matter the age. Prices are reasonable and the excitement is high. Food is very good for a bowling alley.

Jose Jimenez

Great oiled lanes and plenty of ac.. Food prices are reasonable.

Gala Harvell

Need to remodel. This place is just old and worn. It just doesn't look clean.

KNew MAccount

It was great for family bowling

Amanda Feather

I love to grab some drinks and couple games here! Great Atmosphere and people!!

You Are Absolutely Right

Great family alley. I took my six year old son and he met with a few of his friends and we had a great time. The staff is very helpful and patient. The food is pretty pricey though. But, my son loves it so we will definitely be back.
