Came with the kids, who were off from school for the holiday. We waited for three and a half hours for a lane. We all enjoyed the bowling. Would visit again during non-peak hours.

Lots of batting cages with pitch speeds varying from 35 mph to 70 mph. Enjoyed this a lot. Also bowling to be enjoyed. They do have a game room as well. The food was okay but that's not why you go here. Bring money, it's addictive.

It is very expensive!!!!!!! I thought a bowling party would be great for the teens. They were not ready for us at 1pm on a friday to eat lunch. They would not book my party of 13 ahead of time because it was 5 days prior. I went a la cart and was way too much..The place is clean and well lit.

The start of our party experience here was TERRIBLE, thanks entirely to their manager on duty.
She threatened to take our food away and call the police!! WOW. Unbelievable.

We held a birthday party for approximately 25 children and many of the parents also came. As we always do, we brought our own food - a birthday cake and light snacks for the adults.
We also purchased the pizza and ice cream from Humdingers.

Every other party venue that we have used like this one allows this, so we didn't foresee a problem. That, and nothing was in writing, and we weren't informed up front. A suggestion was made that we could buy their food if we choose to, that's all.

Then the fireworks began. She was totally abusive and she disrespected many of the adults with her outrageous behavior.
I doubt that Humdinger's would want an employee of this caliber being their face to the customer. We ultimately reached an accord, and the party started without further incident.

The venue itself was a good choice. The children weren't aware of Manager Nasty, and they all had a good time. The hosts that ran the party did a great job with the children and the parents. As a matter of fact, I'd say that they were a cut above. They were very hands on and very helpful.

The bowling and arcade beforehand were excellent, and everyone had a good time.

Nowhere was Manager Nasty to be found when we were leaving - no apology, no offer of it was a misunderstanding, no thank you for using our facility, etc. She needs help!

BTW, without this incident and without Manager Nasty, I'd have given this experience at least 4 stars.

We have been here several times. Love the place! Clean, very new and love the fact that it is a byob (with some strange rules but okay :-) The one thing I would say is please make reservations a possibility. For us it is a bit out of the way, at times we have gotten right in then other times there is 1 or 2 hour wait at which point we turn around and leave. With Lucky Strike taking reservations we are a little more inclined to try there but would definitely prefer Humdingers if reservations were made available! :-)
