As of September 1, 2008, Lanes & Games will be changing its bowling rates for both Candlepin and Tenpin bowling. Please select below to view the new prices.


Candlepin Bowling

Candlepin is more commonly known as "small ball" bowling. It is the type of bowling most common in the New England region and perhaps the best type of bowing for small children. The house balls weigh approximately 2 pounds 5 ounces.

Tenpin Bowling

Tenpin is the game most widely known. The balls are drilled to fit the index finger, the pointer finger and the thumb. The ball weights for adults vary from 8 to 16 pounds. Special 6-pound balls are available for small children upon request.

Children's Birthdays

Please call at least 2 to 4 weeks ahead for availability in the summer and 4 to 8 weeks ahead in the winter. We are very busy during inclimate weather. Reservations will have preference over walk-ins. Walk-in birthday parties will be charged regular rates.
