Those people over at that bowling alley are horribly high on there prices and rude as can be. There machines don't work half the time and they won't give you a refund if it messes up and they can't fix it for a while. Its crazy that people like that even have the money to start something like that in the first place. But thats probably how they got the money to do it in the first place by being complete ass wholes and walking all over people to make a dime. That or selling drugs like half the rich and politicians around here. I hope something happens and someone puts something in around here that isn't so high priced or hateful as those people.

Their lanes aren't even waxed right! They have the whole damn thing waxed up when it should just be the last foot or so. They need to know what they are doing before they start a damn business!!

Yeah, people go from selling drugs to a decent legitimate business all the time. When do you hear of that happening? I'm not talking about using a mom and pop store as a front either. From what I heard, it isn't high priced and they were nice out there. And For Real, when you start a new business you learn as you go. You don't know everything as soon as you begin. Why don't you educate them? You know so much but I bet you aren't doing anything. Usually the ones who know so much haven't tried to do anything. At least they are trying to better themselves while providing a service and something positive that Harlan really could use, especially the younger people. I don't know these people but I'm tired of people who sit on their asses complain about people who are 'doing' even if they aren't doing everything right. At least they are trying. I say good luck to them.

If you consider $54 "not high priced" for a family of 4 to play two games you have lost your mind! They have been told about the lanes many times and have yet to fix it so now what?

You'd probably pay that if you went to the movies and got snacks and drinks.

If I am going to pay 54 dollars to bowl then my family best be getting some 'snacks' also!! But of course not, that would be an extra 30.00!! I agree, that place is outrageous! That's why me&my family still drive to harrogate on Saturday to pay rock n bowl! It my cost more gas but we get to get outta Harlan and the price is a lot cheaper!!! It's a shame something good comes to your home town but most can't afford it!! The owners need to make some changes!

Plus it gives you and your family an opportunity to spend some time out of town for awhile. That's a win win situation if you ask me.

Yes, God forbid that these people want to try and recoup some of the 600,000 plus dollars that they have in this project. I have been there just about every week since the opened and have been very impressed, was everything perfect, no but they are there day and night trying to make it a great place to take your family. So if it's not for you, just don't go, but quit getting on Topix and run the place down, typical Harlan idiot.

Nobody asked them to spend that much money on that place! All harlan asked for was an affordable place to go bowl! Your probably one of those typical harlan idiots that get on Facebook and complain that you are broke but yet go bowling everyday or take your kid to dollywood! Lol your a dumba$$!!

Not being mean, but for a bowling ally to survive they need to make enough money to carry them thru there 3 and 4th year..Cause business slows down about that time, then picks back up after a year or so..54 dollers is crazy, u can go anywhere whith in 100 miles and only pay 6-12 dollers a game..no matter how many people play..But guess hey will have to learn the hard way when everything slows down by summer on those prices..

Well you just did exactly what you were getting on somebody else for that is run somebody done. Just because you had good service does'nt mean everyone else has. Topix was designed as a forum to express yourself so whats wrong with expressing how you feel about a business. Your actually the one that should stay off topix, because you rwally have no idea what it's for you simpleton!

How much do you think it cost to open a bowling alley?? Couple hundred dollars??? I can't believe that was even put on here. They had to buy all the equipment, the space, have it built etc...If you asked for a place to bowl, then you asked them to spend that much money on that place. OMG, people have no idea what it's like to run a business or make it in this world. That's why this place doesn't have anything. Try going to kingsport or Johnson city and go bowling, they actually are cheaper here.
