Tiki Bowling Lanes opened in 1962 on what was then known as Krouse Road and was later renamed in honor of the business. A Lancaster Eagle-Gazette article on November 29, 1962 described the 32-lane alley as one of the most beautiful, well-equipped bowling lanes in Ohio.

Thanks to a major renovation that included the addition of 10 lanes in 1972, Tiki has hosted numerous local, statewide and national bowling tournaments over the years. Our facility was the site of the Ohio high school state bowling finals from 2007 to 2009.
