As I walked out of the crowded parking lot and into the building of Forest Hill Lanes, I anxiously hoped that a lane would be open for me and my date.

I walked up to the front counter and was greeted by the friendly cashier, who told me that they did, in fact, have one lane open. My date and I rented our shoes, which totaled out to be only $3.80 for both pairs. One round of bowling was $9.50 which, luckily, I had coupons for, so the game was free for both of us.

There were no problems during our game, no stuck balls, no slips on the lane, no need for bumpers. However, if there were, the attentive staff would have been right there to help us.The only downside to bowling is that it goes fast, especially if you only play one round. The bowling itself only lasted about 25 minutes.

If you’re looking for a quick, fun, and inexpensive date, Forest Hill Lanes would definitely be a place to consider going. Adding more friends would definitely make the game longer, and would hopefully make it even more fun too.

Overall, I definitely recommend Forest Hill Lanes as a place to take a date or a group of friends. Bowling is affordable and enjoyable, making it a great (and local – it’s only about 15 minutes away from JC) place to go and have some weekend fun.
