  • Play new and classic video games 
  • Hang out in the lounge and enjoy some xtreme tots

What is the wait on a Friday or Saturday night around 8:00 p.m.?

The wait for a lane depends upon a variety of factors, including events booked for that date, the size of groups currently bowling, the number of groups already on the wait list, etc. An exact wait time cannot be determined for a particular time of day. However, if you are concerned about having lanes for a large group of people you can request a reservation by going to our Plan A Party page or by calling (405) 609-3302.
