Q. When does Tiki Lanes have lanes available for Open bowling?
A. We have lanes available for Open bowling during all of our Open hours with very few exceptions. Our Open Bowling lanes are available first come, first serve. We have many leagues, but there are not any times when we have a league that the league takes up our whole facility. There are rare occasions between our leagues, high school bowling or other scheduled events that we may not have lanes available at a particular time. You can always call (740-654-4513) and ask if you have a particular time in mind.

Q. Does Tiki Lanes offer Thunder Alley (Cosmic / black light bowling)?
A. During our Peak Season (general September through March) we have Thunder Alley on Fridays from 10 pm to Midnight. We begin accepting lane reservations each Friday at 5 pm by phone or in person. This event costs $12 per person which includes bowling and shoe rental during the time of the event. The cost is prepaid at the time you arrive. We may still offer this event during our off-season, but the day and time may change.
Q. How do I get into a league?
A. Most of our full season leagues begin in August or September. Most of our Summer Leagues start in May. If you are trying to get in a league at the beginning of the season we recommend attending the league organizational meeting which occurs anywhere from the first day of league bowling to 1 month before the league starts. If you are trying to join a league mid-season we recommend coming out during the league session to meet bowlers in the league. You can look at our league pages for more information about our offerings. Please reach out to Kris Schmelzer if you have any questions – 740-654-4513 or kris.tikilanes@gmail.com.
