What Other Activities Can I Do at a Bowling Alley?

“Wanna go to the bowling alley?”


Spending time with friends is amazing, but sometimes you don’t want to bowl. Maybe you’re not up for it, you don’t enjoy bowling, or you’re not very good at it. Whatever the reason, you’re looking for something else to do.


The good news is that you don’t have to suggest an alternate meeting spot. There’s a lot you can do at a bowling alley that isn’t bowling! Let’s take a look at some of the options.

Enjoy the Arcade

At Stars and Strikes, the fun doesn’t end at the bowling alley. Far from it! Why not check out the video arcade? You can challenge yourself, your friends, or your date to a friendly game of The Walking Dead.


If you’re out with family, there are plenty of games you can play with kids too. Prize redemption games can excite your kids and give them something to work for. Or, you can play Dance Dance Revolution, which is a fun workout for any age!


Our arcade uses game cards loaded with credits, so you don’t have to worry about your tokens rolling under a machine. Come check out our games today!

Escape Rooms

Escape rooms are the current craze, and we aim to please. With Escapology, you can choose from several different options — save the world from chemical warfare, or escape a sinking submarine, or solve a murder mystery on a train.


Escape rooms are 60 minutes and give your group a great way to have fun, practice problem solving, and bond. Each room is completely immersive. Try one today!

Bumper Cars

No need to wait for a summer fair to enjoy this attraction! Bumper cars are fun for all ages and can be done with family, friends, or on a date. Our indoor cars zoom quickly and spin, and our floor also features laser lights and great music.


You’ll have a safe, fun time as you zoom and boom into other drivers. It’s perfect for a birthday party, youth group, or any type of outing!

Other Options

Our bowling alley has so much to do that you can’t fit it in a single article. Why not check out laser tag in our two-story arena. With more hiding places and play area than ever, there’s no end to the fun you can have with family and friends. Targets are more accurate than ever, and you’ll feel like you’re in a movie.


If that’s not your style, why not try one of our virtual reality games? You can play Beat Saber VR or take a ride with Virtual Rabbids. Ultra Moto VR puts you on a high-speed motorcycle where you can race and try insane tricks.


Another great option is ax throwing, which is now open at our Smyrna, TN location and coming soon in Huntsville, AL.


No matter what, Stars and Strikes can help you have a good time.
