Prepare to be bowled over by nonstop action
Anyone with half a soul in their body loves bowling – it’s the perfect way to figure out if your new friend is actually an undercover robot (the clue is when they bowl ten consecutive strikes and don’t smile). But that doesn’t mean throwing “rocks” (bowling balls to those in the know) is all you can do at your local AMF emporium. Check out all these other options beyond the lanes that you’ll enjoy at your local AM.
Laser is a heart-pounding battle of wills
If bowling isn’t directly competitive enough for you, laser tag is the perfect option for going head-to-head against friends, rivals and family members who mistakenly think they can bring it. Our dark-future battlefields are designed to give you the most exciting arena in which to fight. Which means you can lie in wait for your mates before launching your assault.
Oh my god, that menu
You might not think of your local bowling alley as the place to score some delicious food, but one look at AMF’s new menu is sure to get your mouth watering (wipe your chin). We’re talking a range of burgers, three types of hot dogs, share plates including nachos and smoky memphis wings... and that’s before we flip over to check out the frozen beverages (slushies)exciting milkshakes for the designated drivers and under-18s. Hang on – what’s this about a Potato Bar? Did we die on the way here and wind up in Bowler Heaven?
More games than you conceivably handle
Arcades have made a massive comeback in recent years, as gamers embrace the competition and face-off potential of new-school pinball machines and classic titles. Video games and bowling alleys have gone hand in hand since Final Fight and Gauntlet were babies, but AMF’s arcades has taken this one step further, with more than 1,200 machines across the network. Whether you want to prove your dominance on the air-hockey table, test your run’n’gun skills on a rail shooter or show these rookies how it’s done in Daytona, there’s a title with your name on it.
We missed the desserts
Look, it’s gonna be tempting to fill up at the Potato Bar, with its many tuber-based options (waffle fries! Chips loaded with chipotle pulled pork and cheese sauce!). But before you get your starch on, be aware than there’s plenty of delicious fare to neck after your main meal. Keep an eye on your friends though – you don’t want that ice cream sundae or Nutella pizza to disappear before you head back to the laser arena.
