Bowling Party Tips:

1) If you have young kids bowling, tell them beforehand that they can only throw one ball at at time down the lane. By the time we explained the rules, the kids were too excited to listen to us.

2) I booked an hour of bowling, and all of the kids could have gone longer. I would not book less time than this.

3) If you have younger kids playing, ignore the rules. We had kids taking turns (one turn each rather than three). They were also switching lanes. We did not keep track of points. They had a blast.
