Key Considerations For Your Bowling Alley
When building a bowling alley, it’s imperative that your checklist includes all of the crucial factors. First and foremost, you need to think about the physical dimensions that you’re working with. After all, this will impact almost every aspect of the development.
A regulation size lane should be at least 87’ long, which includes a 16’ approach. Width requirements vary depending on the layout and number of lanes. However, most alleys adopt a system where lanes come in pairs, and 11’ 4” is accepted as the traditional width. Of course, you can make it slightly wider, but this may limit the number of total lanes.
Unfortunately, a lot of people make the mistake of thinking solely about the lanes. In truth, the surroundings are an equally crucial factor as you look to provide guests with the best user experience. A roof of at least 10’ high is recommended as you’ll want to have television screens above the lanes. Likewise, you need to think about the technology used to record scores, reset the pins and return the balls. Murrey Bowling incorporates all of those features, as well as equipment like barriers, into every design.
Even if the alley is to be just one part of the complex, it’s appearance needs to work well with the rest of the venue. Different businesses will have varying ideas on themes and other factors. Still, providing a fun and comfortable environment that offers hours of entertainment is the ultimate goal. Murrey Bowling knows how to make it happen.
