I love this place. The scent of shoe cleanser in the air; the kids buzzing around with game tickets in their hands, the not-so-great food, the crashing sounds of candle pins (found only here in New England)... it all adds up to a quintessential American experience: bowling. They have bumper lanes for your kids (or if you terrible). There is... More

This Bowling alley has been in Woburn for a long time. I used to go there as a child and now I bring my child. Great place, but could use an update!

Looking for an activity with my grandsons who live near Woburn, I found the Bowladrome. While the decor is definitely a throwback to a bygone era, the staff there is very pleasant and helpful. At $25 for an hour of bowling, this isn't a cheap activity, but my grandsons and I had a fun time here.

it's a little bit dated but still a really fun place to go with friends. There's a tiny little arcade area and they serve beer and wine there. It's a cheap fun night out!

Plenty of games and amusements. prices are fair and parking is more than adequate. I used to go with my son on Sundays. He enjoys bowling and being with his Dad. Reminds me of my teenage bowling yrs.

We've been here many times with the kids and for birthday parties. Always have a great time. The interior is your typical classic bowling alley right down to the rug on the walls. They serve DECENT pizza. There are tons of lanes so it never seems to crowded. Contemporary music which the kids love. Clean and decent parking.

I had never played Candlepin Style bowling, and I loved it. Whole family played and had a great time. If there is a down side, its that candlepin bowling is harder than it looks. To us, that made it better, and placed us all on the the same level.

I liked the family atmosphere. Candlepin bowling is also really hard! The place is super busy from 6 to 9 and parking can be tough. However, the place gets deserted after that. Get a lane in the back with black lights. It's more fun
