Comments

My Dad told me stories of him working at Thunderbowl in the mid 1960's. He also talked about how it was his an my moms favorite date night spot in the late 60's early 70's. I remember running around here at three four years old, watching my dad during league night in the early 80's. Thunderbowl held so many memories for him and my family ♡ RIP

I never thought I’d be the one to have to tell a story like this because i never thought it would happen to me personally but here i am. Last night me and my friend Courtneyy Lynne went bowling last night at Thunderbowl Lanes thinking we were in for a good time and it was kind of the opposite to start. We were unaware of what exact door we could enter through so we proceeded to go to the door a Caucasian man was standing outside of, so me and my friend politely asked if we could enter through that door and he says “ oh you want to enter through the white people only entrance SURE! The other people are over there” & like swings the glass door open supper hard causing it to hit the wall outside & me and my friend were so taken back like i know he didn’t just say that?! We were like what?! And he kinda chuckles and kept going so as we walk in that entrance it literally was only white people! So i say to Courtney he wasn’t lying!!! So we walk towards the other side where all the other black people were at and I’m honestly in disbelief because it’s segregation right in front of our eyes!! ALL OVER AGAIN!! Not that it has really ever went away but this was ridiculous. So i go up to the counter to tell the lady at the counter(white of course) and she was just like fake about the whole situation, no apologies, nothing. DO NOT SUPPORT THUNDERBOWL LANES THEY ARE RACIST!!!!!!!!! And it’s completely unacceptable!! Nothing like this has ever happened to me so i really didn’t know how to handle it without using my anger and getting violent😒 Thunderbowl Lanes FOX 2 Detroit Tamika WilliamsSHARE SHARE SHARE PLEASEEE!!‼️‼️ and tag everybody please #thunderbowllanes #thunderbowllanesallenpark

Is the pro shop open I ordered a ball sat they said I could pick it up today but I’m not getting an answer
Maybe by making the kids bowl free available... supposedly starts at 4pm and and 405 nothing available for this program. Why be in a program if your not going to be acsessable? I have a 8 and 10 year old who were looking forward to this all day.... THIS IS WHY SO MANY PLACES ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!!! Supposedly they have to. “Oil the lanes for the leagues later on.” I’m done with THUNDERBOWL!!!

Since 1962, Thunderbowl has been the bowling center of choice for both pros and amateurs.

With 90 total lanes, we are the largest bowling center in the country. Thunderbowl is also home to the Greater Detroit Bowling Association Hall of Fame. We can accommodate leagues with as few as 8 bowlers and as many as 450 bowlers! We also house televised PBA tournaments. Thunderbowl is separated into three incomparable areas: •The Arena with 20 lanes, top 50 music videos on a large screen over the lanes, modified room lighting, & dancing. Great for corporate events! •The main with 54 Lanes, top 50 music videos on 16 large screen T.V.'s and a 160" projection screen, modified lighting & dancing in the "Sports Bar." •The Cosmic with 16 lanes, top 50 music videos on large screen T.V. 's, free video game arcade, & cosmic room lighting. Great for birthday parties!
