FAQs for friendly bowling

Frequently Asked Questions for Social games at ZONE BOWLING


I am ready to bowl it off, how long does one game take to complete?

One game of bowling at ZONE BOWLING lasts around 45 minutes to 1 hour for 5 to 6 people. Plenty of time to score a perfect 300. To be more specific, it translates to each game lasting approximately 10 minutes per person on the lane. 

Awesome, but how many people per lane?

6 people or less per lane. 

I have more than 6 people bowling in my group, will we be bowling together?

Yes, you will, if you book ahead and guarantee your lanes. For all bookings of over 6 people, you will automatically be given 2 side by side lanes.

I wore jandals, and forgot my socks, do you sell socks in venue?

We sell socks in venue for $4.50!

What is the deal with shoes, can't I just wear my own?

Bowling shoes are specially made as they allow customers to "slide" when Bowling, helping you hit that strike. It is important that these shoes are worn at all times as the incorrect footwear is a potential safety risk and can damage the approach to the lanes. 

What is our size range for shoes?

We range from Toddlers size 6 up to Men’s size 16
Men's bowling shoe sizes are the same as their normal shoes.
Women's bowling shoe sizes are two sizes below their normal shoe size. Example a ladies size 8 is a bowling size 6.
Kid's shoe sizes are the same as their normal shoes.
Unfortunately, there are no half sizes.

Can I do bowling and laser?

Yes you can, check out our standard games pricing to book in the deal.
