The kids decided to have a sibling night at the Bowling Barn. The cost was reasonable and their laughter worth every penny spent. The cosmic aspect adds more excitement and fun to the game. The youngest child even won over his adult siblings which was resulted in major bragging rights. My daughter left something there and once home/upon discovering it... More

Ouch this place was really expensive. Would have been great if more reasonable priced so you could take the family.

We enjoy going to the Bowling Barn during our annual Big Bear Lake trips. If the weather is bad, or you've had enough of exploring the outdoors, it is a solid bowling venue. The snack bar is tiny and dated and the bar lacks ambience, but that is sort of what you expect at a bowling alley. The staff was... More

We always stop in to bowl or watch others bowl, play a couple arcade games. Everyone is nice. Great place to go if you have kids. It's near the Alpine Slide and go karts, so it is a perfect place to pop in and have fun. Burn off some energy!!. We take the grandkids when we have them or just... More

We had a great time bowling with the family. I think it might be best to go before 7:00pm because it can get rather busy...they keep a list and it's first come first serve.

We went on a Saturday night as a family outing. The people here were drunk, loud, using profanity and smoking, INSIDE (is that even legal). People were just throwing the balls with not waiting or caring about the bowlers sharing the lanes with them. We paid for 3 games each but left after 2.
