Overview
More
The innovations of bowling unfold before your eyes through life-sized replicas, touch-screen kiosks, film montages and interactive games. See the custom bike built by the Tuetel Family and featured on Orange County Choppers program. Talk to a 1920's pinboy with an attitude. See how bowling balls & pins are made. Play on a fully functioning small-ball bowling lane. We set 'em up and you knock 'em down.

A couple of years ago we told the kids we were going on vacation to the International Bowling Museum in Arlington. They weren't too excited until we got there and they noticed that Six Flags was right across the street.

We were impressed by the history of bowling that dates back to the Egyptians. The museum goes through the development of the bowling pins and balls, highlighting young boys as pin setters, tv tournaments, and outstanding players that won trophies throughout the years. There is...More

I had stayed at a hotel across the street and saw this and wanted to head over. I was a little surprised at the 10.50 entrance fee. I must say I was surprised with the amount of history of the bowling and the interactive exhibits....More
