Murfreesboro Strike and Spare

Attraction details
Reviewed 26 May 2016

I took a class here for school and go back occasionally. They offer so great deals throughout the week and are open late. There are several lanes, a shop, an arcade and a restaurant. Ball rental is free. The staff is rude and don't care. The equipment sometimes freezes and breaks. They offer parties and lock-ins. Cheap, rainy day fun!

Thank Devon B

15 minutes into our bowl, we had to alert staff that our balls were not coming back. Then another 10 minutes pass and again we had to alert staff (by this time is a whole new staff except for one tall skinny guy) that the balls were not coming back. On the third trip to alert staff, we were informed by a VERY wisenheimer girl that there was no need for us to keep coming back up as they keep an eye on things. Then she walked off laughing about our frustration with another employee (tall, skinny guy). A few minutes later here we go again back to talk about the ball return.

After voicing our complaints, staff laughed in our face. Yes, the three of them stood right there and laughed in our faces, told us that they added 10 minutes to our game, that we were not getting our money back and there was nothing they could do to fix the issue. I am unsure what we the customers were suppose to do to resolve the issue other than talk to the ones running the place. Being disrespected and enraged, we demanded to speak with a manager. We were again met with laughter along with a refusal to get a manger. At 6:05pm we stormed out of the establishment.

Please understand, not one time did we ask for our money back. We were celebrating my son’s birthday and just wanted to bowl. In addition to the money spent for bowling and shoes, we spent $40.00 on our first round of food and drinks. So money was/is not the issue.

Worse bowling alley ever!!! Would rather sit in the hot sun staring at a snail then go back here!

We are not big bowlers but my wife was looking for something to do on a rainy day with the kids. They were running a special so you could bowl as long as you wanted for a set price. All of the lanes have automatic scoring, but unfortunately it was not working on the lane we were given and I noticed it wasn't working on many of the other lanes either. This is probably not a good choice for bowlers who can make a lot of strikes and spares but was ok for our family as we only ended up with a couple of strikes and a few spares. Eventually we were put on a lane where the automatic scoring was working.
