We have many leagues, but there are not any times when a league takes up our whole facility.

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.  This event costs $13 per person, but there is a $39 minimum cost per lane which includes bowling and shoe rental during the time of the event. The cost is prepaid at the time you arrive. Please make no more than 2 payments per lane (1 cash and 1 card) so check-in will go smoother and we get you on your lane quicker. Lanes are available first come, first serve. We can begin assigning lanes at 9:30 pm. 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.
