Bowling PinsWe understand that you may not want to be bothered with every little detail associated with installing your bowling center.  That’s why we take it upon ourselves to provide you with a package that will fit your specific needs.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Contact us using the contact form here. 
  2. We will ask you a few questions in order to form an accurate recommendation.
  3. We will customize a package for you and provide you with a detailed estimate. You will find the package broken down into basic, upgradable, and add-on components, as seen below.


Basic components are “behind the scenes” materials and will be provided as refurbished to minimize cost to you. These components will not affect the lane’s functionality or aesthetic appeal. 

Upgradable components are those that may affect functionality and aesthetic appeal. We are completely transparent with our pricing and will provide you with full information as to the functionality and appeal to these components. Here are some examples of upgradable components:
