Do I have to book?

No, you’re more than welcome to walk-in at your convenience. However we do recommend booking as walk-ins are subject to availability only.

Do I have to wear bowling shoes?

Yes, we change all shoes. We have every size from kids size 6 to adult size 14, so anyone can be a supermodel! Here’s why:

Safety, bowling alleys have specially treated surfaces that can be slippery due to the oil applied on the lane approach. Regular shoes can stick to the floor and cause trips or falls, bowling shoes have smooth soles that allow for the slight sliding needed to bowl comfortably.

Lane preservation, the soles of your shoes can carry dirt, and particularly on Exmouth sea-front, sand. Over time, this damages the polished wood and, has in past worked it’s way into our bowling machinery.

Performance, The design of the shoes allow you to make the precise movements necessary in tournament level bowling, to deliver the ball smoothly and with control.

Does it cost to hire bowling shoes?.

The shoe hire cost is included in the price of your game.

Do I have to wear socks?

Yes, please make sure you bring a pair along with you. If you don’t have socks with you, we sell them for £1.60, just ask at the bowling reception during your visit.

Your bowling balls look different?

Our bowling balls are double thumbed, fitting even more hands, this means every size and weight is already right there on your lane. So you’ll never have to hunt for a ball that fits comfortably again.

Are your lanes string pin?

String pinsetters are becoming common place as a new technology, we use professional grade free fall pinsetters. These machines give you a more authentic bowling experience and ensure precise pin placement every time, providing tournament-level bowling experience.

Can I bring my dogs?

Unfortunately, for their safety and comfort, your four-legged-friend can not accompany you inside the bowling lanes. They are welcome to stay in our ground floor restaurant, The Engine Room.
