I attended the national bowling as part of a group activity for a conference . Typically the group does a golf kickoff event. Because of weather and timing, bowling was selected for the kickoff activity. The facility was clean organized and extremely fun. The employees and manager were generous with their time and made the outing enjoyable. Really, what could... More

Yes, I was one of the many that bowled when this place opened.... in the early 90's... it was a great tournament for me... cashed quite well... but I did better overall when the tournament was held in the convention center.... since then shoulder and knee injuries have curtailed my bowling... the last 5 years... 27 tournament years now over......

The National Bowling Stadium is a great place to bowl in a tournament. The stadium staff is always friendly and helpful. Once you have been there a few times, they will even greet you by name. The Lane 81 Pro Shop is huge and the staff is quite knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the food and beverage offerings are severely lacking.

Our event held a party there and the food was great and if was so much fun to bowl in the HUGE Alley with the retro feel. If you just want to watch you can sit at the circular booths just outside of all the lanes and relax and watch. Its great for everyone.

Massive Bowling stadium and Museum. A must-see for Bowling fans. I only had a chance to tour the stadium, but did not get to watch a competition. I can tell that the highest rows of the spectator section offer the best views of the massive number of lanes. Plenty of fast food options were available and the bathrooms were very... More

Very Interesting for an occasional bowler. The seating to watch the bowlers was okay. It is always great to watch people who can bowl strike after strike after strike.

What a beautiful complex. Lots of things to see and do. Lots of rain and storm.. If you're a baller I am sure you will love it.

The museum and hall of fame are very nicely done. The exhibits show the history of bowling equipment and are really interesting. The bowling alleys are upstairs. Not sure how many lanes they have but it is a LOT. Also a few vendors.

Had to be here for the bowling game tournament . Nice big place to bowl. They keep it plenty cool, so bring a light jacket if your just watching. Some of the staff to get food and pop were pretty rude, but all others were nice.

I was on my way to Downtown Reno, so I decided to take a peek inside. There was tournament in progress so I was able to see the place in action. This place is huge. They even have a upper level gallery. On the first floor is the Bowling Hall of Fame. You might as well check that out as... More
