Bowl Winkles is great if you want a fun, laid back night! They offer cosmic bowling and you can get drinks from the attached bar. We absolutely love the bar. Every time we visit we stop here.The wings are probably the best in town. It's definitely a local hang out but it's still great.

Kids loved it bc it was like cosmic bowling...I loved it bc the attached "kid free" bar had amazing pint margaritas for $6:) The front desk clerk lacked pizzazz but we had a great time. Bring socks!

Went here on a rainy night with our children and some friends and their children. It's a very small bowling alley. The balls constantly get stuck in the back of the alley and people have to retrieve them. It didn't ruin the fun though, the kids had a good time! They played current music for them and it's always a... More

Great time cosmic bowling with modern dance tunes and a fun atmosphere. Great staff and specials- $40 for a lane for 90 minutes and a large pizza! Also good drink specials- $3 Blue Moon in a frosted glass with orange slice. Mmmmmm... We all had a ball!!! ❤️😀❤️

We came to Lake Placid to enjoy the outdoor activities and triathlon training camp but during an afternoon thunderstorm it's a great place to let our 6 and 8 year old have fun! They have 8 lanes and its most families. The kids love the music and lights.

Our family happened to be in Lake Placid when winter was a little slow in coming so we were searching for indoor activities. The bowling alley made for a fun afternoon. The children loved the strobe lights. The staff was very accommodating.

We went to the cosmic bowling on Saturday night. The bowling alley was smaller than others that I've been too, but I think it's fitting for the town because there were only 2 other parties there. The cosmic added a fun spin to it. I think the bowling alley should get some new graphics for between bowlers, they were all... More

We went for Laser Tag which is still advertised on their website and were told that it has been closed down. We decided to take advantage of the arcade and found it to be so old and run down. Most of the games weren't working and there was very little selection. Huge disappointment. Bathroom was clean - so that is... More

There was a really bad rainstorm coming through the area, that lasted most of the day. We needed something to do on this Tuesday night and saw that they had a good deal for cosmic bowling. There were three of us and we bowled from 9:30pm to 11:35pm for just $10. per person. This included your bowling shoes. The deal... More
