I bowled it once. That was enough for me. $85 dollars to go get completely abused for 6 or 8 games (I am trying to forget it). They have the lanes surrounded by a huge wooden box. That way you can't see what how they are dressing the lanes. The far left lane has no oil on it. When I say no oil, I mean NO OIL!!!!!! I took my red pearl shadow and was hooking the lane. Trying to throw it hard and straight might work on some lanes, but not all. Why? Cause on some of the lanes, the ball backs up. Literally backs up. There is so much oil on the lane that the ball backs up. Best to have a ball that will hook a ton and one that doesn't move. There is a lane where the left side is dry, the right oily, every other board has oil, checker board pattern. You name it, they have it. Tough stuff.

They also have a lumberjack tourney. 5lb pins. I can't remember if it is 9pin no tap or not. It takes a lot of force to knock over 10 5lb pins. Again, tough.

I know a lot of people who still bowl it. Year after year, they go back. I guess that abuse is fun for some. Not me.
