Tom Shannon, an entrepreneur, bought the first Bowlmor Lanes in 1997 and transformed the sector. Bowlmor became a Manhattan nightlife destination and was launched into the national scene due to his idea for premium bowling and events, resulting in additional sites around the United States.
Bowlmor acquired AMF Bowling Centers in 2013. Bowlmor’s portfolio was extended to hundreds of sites throughout America as a result of the transaction, which saved AMF from bankruptcy. In addition, Bowlmor AMF developed Bowlero the following year, a revolutionary new brand that would elevate bowling to new heights. That year, the firm again made news when it purchased Brunswick Corporation’s bowling center division, bringing two long-time industry rivals—AMF and Brunswick—together for the first time in history.
They acquired another significant purchase in 2019: the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA). They’re reenergizing the PBA and delivering the sport to millions of fans with their partners at FOX Sports. Bowlero Corp is currently a worldwide media conglomerate and the world’s most prominent owner and operator of bowling facilities. Their staff numbers over 8,000 people, they have over 12,000 lanes, and over 28 million people visit their facilities each year.
It’s bowling, eating, and nightlife experience brimming with funny throwbacks and ready to wow. Bowlero is a retro-themed hangout with blacklight bowling, creative drinks, an absurd menu of Oversized Shareables, and nostalgia. So forget everything you thought bowling could be and get ready to have the epic fun that can only be had when you go Bowlero.
Bowlmor Lanes, the company that started a nationwide craze for luxury bowling entertainment, blends blacklight lanes and arcade activities with wonderfully imaginative cuisine and unique beverages to offer nightclub-inspired bowling fun. See why Bowlmor’s unique bowling lounges are ideal for business and special events to dating nights and family gatherings.
AMF is America’s place to play, a contemporary homage to the glory days of bowling that offers family-friendly entertainment, league-friendly lanes, and a delectable menu of “crave-able” comfort cuisine at locations around the nation. AMF is casual recreation done correctly, perfect for daily enthusiasts and dedicated league bowlers.
Bowling is a fun pastime that individuals of all ages can enjoy. The bowling centers provide bumpers and ball ramps at no additional cost to younger bowlers. However, please be aware that several of their facilities have age limitations during late evenings and weekends.
