What a fabulous place to go bowling in the City. Close to transport and so much fun. Lanes were readily available and whilst it was busy games were fine. Have a few drinks with mates or take the kids easy!

We spent a good few hours here - lots to go with kids, bowling, arcade games and laser tag. Plus food and drinks. Good way to spend a good half day!

Very tacky place. Bowling lines need maintenance, they are also short Pool tables linen ripped open, very small balls. Still dare to charge 3$ per game.

Hi Jenny, the nearest Car park is the Wilson Harbourside Cark Park. You can walk directly from the parking to the Harbourside complex and right into our venue.
