this place is bad - I would avoid it and go to Colony Lanes up the street. Their lanes are nicer and cleaner at Colony....

Actually, this is a great place-it's brand new, the bar is gorgeous, they do great parties, and the staff is friendly and nice. The lanes and all are brand new, what's not to like?

We went back just to make sure- again it was spotless, great staff and lots of fun. Highly recommend!

Seems to be some differing opinions on this place, so I will set the record straight. The place is not all brand new - the machine were used, and run poorly, the lanes were installed incorrectly and cause the bowling balls to bounce a lot, they still have the old ball returns from the TBowl days - these are the same ball returns that have had a safety recall made against them because they are very prone to injuries, and the seating in the bowlers area is also from the old TBowl days and haven't been cleaned in a LONG time!

I have to agree the place hasnt been cleaned in a very long time it is not worth paying money to use such beat up equipment

Has anyone ever figured out the "Age Old" question to why a bowling alley attracts such weird people? I used to visit Colony Lanes and the old T-Bowl and it used to be a freak show on Saturday nights.It looked like the rejects from the local FLEA MARKET had a convention going on. All I have to say is that if they made drinking booze illegal at the bowling alley.....95% of all bowlers would not play that sport. Can you imagine if they had a few cops sit in front of those alleys after they let out? About 2,000 DUI arrests would be made in Wallingford on RTE 5 alone.

Can't say that about Wallingford Bowl today, maybe in the past. They get a nice crowd and do a great job, the place is spotlessly clean and the staff is super. Can't say the same about Colony lanes, though- THEY get the creepy crowd.

the place is dirty dirty dirty! Attracts all the white trash of Wallingford, which is why the place is so dirty.

They should rename it, "The Hills Have Bowling" bunch of mutants run this place! I don't understand how anyone could say anything favorable about this place. It is filthy, the attendants are rude, and the equipment barely functions. The bar is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, and the bartender is a grouch to put it nicely. Perhaps the under age drinking is the attraction. I tried one time to complain to the owners about some inappropriate behavior on the part of their staff and the owners literally called me and my wife dirty names! Who does that?
