I have been bowling at Arapahoe Bowling Center for about 15 years. I had previously bowled league at a few other... centers. I prefer ABC for league or just for fun bowling. Management and staff have always been customer oriented and very easy to work with for leagues. The kids bowl free program is an awesome opportunity for youth to enjoy bowling.read more
The people that work there are really nice. We enjoy being there.
Great lanes, felt very clean, follows covid-19 safety standards. Great pro shop, they drilled my ball perfect, very... helpful, more than most other pro shops. Good food and pricing.read more

Tyson and his team are fantastic! Too bad about COVID restrictions limiting their abilities for leagues, as they do so... much to keep everyone safe! We will be back, as this is the best of all bowling alleys in the Denver area!read more
One of my favorite centers. I’ve bowled all over the country and this place is legit.

They put curtains to divide 12 lanes into a section due to COVID-19.

Clean bowling alley, friendly staff. Great bowling!
Fun time. Here from out of town. Haven’t been bowling in awhile. Arapahoe Bowling Center is clean and good family fun.... Good food too.read more
Very nice and friendly staff. Good place! Had an awesome time! The kids enjoyed it so much!
I go for the collection of pinball games
I used to love it until they stopped letting us use the free games we earn, as loyalty rewards, on the weekends.... Apparently, being a bowler with a Monday thru Friday day job is frowned upon.read more
Friendly staff, pro shop is awesome. Had not bowled for along time, invested into a new ball because of pro shop... prices. Love this place. Everyone is great!read more

Lanes are always oiled up and it doesn't screw up my ball like celebrities
Jami Jones Mock
These guys are amazing! Every time I go I'm welcomed like family. Lanes are always in great shape and always working.... You can't beat the prices anywhere in town. But with them being family owned they definitely make your feel part. I would highly recommend this alley over any around!read more

Personnel, especially "Chris" are great! Very courteous and knowledgable.
Great place to bowl. Lanes are oiled just right.
Because I have grown up in the area and after being in a league here, I truly love it more than any other alley. It... took a bit to get used to the lanes since I did a league elsewhere, but the area is nice and the staff is awesome both service and making relations to its customers. Keep up the good work, guys!read more
This place is the nicest in the metro area! Love it

Loved bowling at this place. However, on 12/29/2021 while bowling with my granddaughter, my wedding ring fell off -... there are initials and a date inside (less than 2 months from 40th wedding anniversary. Sorry to say but no one turned in my ring. Would have gladly paid whatever a pawn shop gave in which case there could have been 2 winners vs just 1(have not been back since)read more

I love this place. I live in Conifer but make the trip here to practice whenever I can. Clean, bright, amazing pro... shop.The bowler desk, approach, lanes, and machines look like they are always kept up. Also, the wide open spacing is fantastic.read more

I'm speaking as a pinball player and not a bowler here, so take the star rating with a grain of salt based on what... you're visiting for.They have a good selection of pins (including the only NBA Fastbreak in Colorado, according to PinballMap,) but they're in terrible condition, and the staff told me that they don't own the machines; presumably they contract a third party to manage them. The staff don't even have keys to fix a stuck ball! Regardless, whoever is responsible for these machines is doing a lousy job.read more

Great, simple bowling alley. Take advantage of their “happy hour” when you can. Unfortunately was there without a... kitchen closed early. Bar stayed open long enough to enjoy through the late night bowling. Time that I went around 10 was pretty slow lots of lanes open. Had hoped for midnight style bowling but it was all lights on with no hiccups. Which you can not beat. Balls were all over the place giving the slowdown I thought there would be someone cleaning and reorganizing the balls. Difficult to find size but eeh, a acceptable part of the experience. Said acceptable not right though.read more

I typically visit on Tuesday league night to root on some friends. The patrons have always been friendly. They have... clean amenities. They have a nice pinball room with tons of machines (20+). Their pros in the shop seem very knowledgeable and they have a nice little bar. The only thing that lacks is the food service. It's typically pretty slow and they seem to have an angry "head chef". I got a pretty disgusted look shot my way for returning cold fries after waiting 15+ minutes and then he seemed to vebally chastise his young employee. My new frys where hot but the portion was even smaller this time. Felt like a slap in the face. Other than that small gripe I've been coming here for 25+ years and never really had a bad time overall.read more

The best bowling alley in Centennial! Family owned and operated it is kept clean and friendly.
02:04 16 Feb 22
This is a true bowling alley and it's a good one--the people working there are doing a good job of running it. It is... new, and it shows: New means clean and bright. This place is like that. This is not a big restaurant with bowling lanes or a night club where you can also bowl--no. It is a bowling alley where there is a bar area and they also have a snack bar. My chief gripe about ABC has to do with their unwillingness to better manage their leagues or to control how their leagues have made it impossible to bowl there. The size of the leagues has gotten out of control. It had gotten so bad, I.e. there are too many leagues and/or too large of leagues that I, as a league member, am unable to practice because every night, when I call or visit the center, they have a full house because of leagues. 40 lanes occupied every evening and the only time I am able to bowl is during league. No practice. No improvement. I tell you this: I, won't be signing up for league at this bowling alley without some changes made. It's a waste of my time and money. Every night I call the center. Any open lanes tonight? No. Full house. Leagues. In the future I'll do league play at Bowlero.read more

Good experience. Felt like good home style lanes. Will visit again
22:53 26 Jan 22
I have been bowling for 40 years and really appreciate the level of professionalism and knowledge of the staff in the... pro shop! The staff talk to you at your level and understand how the game has changed. I wont go anywhere else while I live in Colorado, Fabi is one hell of a pro and Hammer staff! I also appreciate the honesty about equipment and if they don't think its the correct equipment for you they will tell you, not just sell you.read more

I may be a bit sub par at bowling, and am only good at straights, but hot damn is this a great place. My dad and I come... here. Out once a week and bowl. Lil tip for parents: the jawbreaker pinball machine next to the bathrooms gives out more jawbreakers than the one next to the arcade!read more

I love this bowling alley, it’s amazing and so fun, but I recently had a horrible experience there. I went with my... girlfriend (she’s a beginner) so she just wanted the bars up, so I go up to a blonde woman in a green shirt and ask her if she can raise the bars for my girlfriend. She then replied very rudely “I can’t do that” and just left it at that then I asked where do I go to raise them she proceeded to act oblivious then I asked “do I just go to the front?” then she went behind my back to a group of people a few lanes away and mocked and ridiculed me for asking for the bars to go up. I have always loved this place and loved coming here but because of this experience I won’t be here for a while because the most important part about bowling is having fun and when she mocked and ridiculed me for my girlfriend skill level and for making fun of us behind our back, now I don’t really feeling included or accepted at a family owned bowling alley that I have been coming to for years because of this experience. Everyone is amazing and so nice and sweet. The bartender is one of my favorite people there but because this employee mocked and ridiculed me I feel excluded and uncomfortable.read more

We love this place. Bowling, pool and the pin ball machines amazing!! But I am giving it 3 star because the bartenders... are not sanitary. Numerous times she ate behind the bar using her fingers and served drinks without washing hands. Definitely a food safety concern.read more

This place was amazing and serious life savers they allowed us to come in with 40 kids after another bowling place... cancelled on us last minute.

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!!!! It was a great day!!read more

Could some of the services be faster- sure - a polite smile and acknowledgement, even if you can't get to me right... away, goes along way. BUT they are always polite & professional. The younger staff doesn't treat the place like they are there to party, Food is WAY better than most, prices are fair, Pro-shop is informative and helpful, even to those that are less experienced.read more

I used to bowl league here, it was a blast. Good food made to order, they did some recent renovations and added more... lanes. Family owned everyone is attentive and polite. They have plenty of parking and a nice sit at bar. Pinball tables in a separate room and a pro shop.read more

The staff here is always especially nice.It’s not the newest most modern bowling alley, but it’s a bowling alley. The... lanes are decent the balls are decent. There is a game room, there are vending machines, and the restrooms are always clean. I’ve never had it, but the food (I believe it was chicken fingers and fries) actually smells good.Here, they are especially accommodating to special needs children and adults. They also seem to be especially accommodating to children and seniors. It’s not celebrity lanes, but more of the old style feel that you grew up with. Comfortable, not saddidy.read more

Great bowling alley - bit of an odd layout for seating but clean and with a friendly staff
17:05 24 Dec 19
Hands-down our favorite bowling alley around! This is one of the few independently owned alleys left in Denver and... surrounding area, and it shows! Quality of service is top notch all the way from the front counter, the grill, the pro shop, and to the fully stocked bar. And because they are family owned, they reinvest in their space, their people, and the experience - constantly updating equipment, menus, games, etc. Special recognition to Chris who has taken great care of our small league for a number of years now. And always a pleasure to see Michelle's smiling face behind the bar. I look forward to bowling here for many years to come.read more

One of my favorite bowling centers to visit. Family owned and well kept lanes. They have a large league base and hold... many tournaments. It's an old school bowling center not a fun center like most bowling alleys are going too. No restaurant just snacky foods like hamburgers and such. Food is what you expect from a place like this. It's usually pretty busy with leagues and open bowlers. They have one of the few pro shops I visit in the Denver area. Steve Badovinc owns the pro shop and is a very accomplished bowler. Steve is a great guy and very friendly. Service is usually very good here and friendly. It's kept pretty clean but is an older center so does not have the clean fresh look that most fun centers have. But that's a good thing in my opinion. Again love this center, especially for league and tournaments. One of the better Denver area bowling centers.read more

We needed to get a bowling ball. Pro shop person was very helpful for my son. He asked what lb ball he threw, left or... right handed ball, fingertip or not. We looked what ball he got and the person who worked there measured his hand and we were surprised he could drill the ball right there and we would just wait and it didn't take long. He asked my son as usual to see how it felt, let him just test it with just a little roll and my son said it was just right. We even bought a bag. Am going to recommend to any of my friends if they need a new ball or other bowling supplies go to Arapahoe Bowling Center. We even have bowled there. Very happy with Arapahoe Bowling Centerread more

We are pretty regular visitors here and it is great pretty much every time. We do the "kids bowl free" every summer and... are never disappointed.

Highly recommended and if your in the mood ask Bailey for a bloody Maryread more
03:53 04 Aug 19
Great place to bowl with kids and they are very accommodating. Bumpers, light balls (though they only have a few), and... shoes that fit toddlers made the day. Just watch the hours for their "kids bowl free" coupons. The program is definitely worth it. If you bowl twice with kids it essentially pays for itself. Nice pinball room too! We didn't try the food, so no opinion there.read more
