  • How much room is needed in my home?

    The total length required for a regulation size bowling lane and service isle behind the machine is 86 feet. This includes a 16-foot approach, 60-foot lane and 7-foot pin deck and pit as well as a 3 foot service isle behind the machines. We can customize your lane length to fit your home with an arcade style bowling alley as short as 55 feet.


  • What is a regulation size bowling lane?

    A regulation sized bowling alley consists of standardized lane dimensions and equipment that meet the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) standards and are certified to hold sanctioned bowling leagues and tournaments. A regulation sized bowling lane is built 60 feet in length from the foul line to the center of the headpin. Regulation sized bowling lanes are 41-7/8" wide, and include USBC approved lane material and equipment. The footprint of 2 regulation bowling lanes is approximately 83’-2” long including the approach, lanes, pinsetters with a 3 foot service aisle behind the bowling machine.  The overall width of a standard pair of lanes in a home is 11' 6" wide.

  • How often does the equipment need to be maintained and who can do it?

    Maintenance on bowling equipment is dependent upon frequency of use.  Regular maintenance includes cleaning dirt and grime off equipment, pins and bowling balls. A typical home would schedule a service visit to clean and adjust your equipment quarterly and sometimes even monthly depending on the type of machine that is to be installed. We happily assist each of our customers in establishing a relationship with a nearby bowling mechanic familiar with your type of equipment.

  • What kind of ball return do I need?

    We offer two different ball return options.


     Traditional Ball Return –

    Under lane ball return from machines running in the bowling foundation and returned a powerlift and lifted out of the foundation and placed on the ball rack.  This type of ball return requires a 16” from concrete floor to top of lane surface.

    Surface mounted return track from the machine to the ball rack on the approach.   This ball return requires only 11 inches from the concrete floor to the top of the lane surface.

    Ideally, a 12-foot ceiling would comfortably accommodate your home bowling alley. We can accommodate a 9 and 10-foot ceiling but note the pitfalls of having a lower ceiling.
