This will strike a chord with bowling fans – Dubai Bowling Center has re-opened to the public after a knock-out make-over.
We’re pleased to see the impressive exterior – humongous bowling ball crashes into castle – is still in place. If wallet-friendly fun is how you roll, step inside the 7,000 square metre palace of fun in Al Quoz, which back after an extensive spruce-up inside.
As well as 16-professional series bowling lanes and retro movies to watch while you wait your turn, DBC also welcomes four new attractions: DBC Arcade has classic old school games. The Zone is packed with the latest gaming consoles, where gamers can have food and freak shakes delivered directly. Jump Up is the UAE’s newest trampoline playground with spaces for dodgeball, aerobics, basketball and more. Organising a party? Hire the Party Time private hall. Opening soon is the Little Stars toddler play area, where tots can safely enjoy themselves.
We know what you’re thinking – if only there was somewhere to eat, this truly would be a one-stop shop of old school fun. Yep, these bowling babes are one step ahead of us. YAMU which means ‘yummy’ in Japanese, is a quality fast food restaurant serving naturally-coloured burger buns and funky freak shakes like Lotus Life, Cookie Monster and Pistachio Rose.
Bowling starts from AED 20 per person weekdays and AED 30 weekends. One hour in The Zone from AED 15; 30 minutes at Jump Up AED 40. Costs vary for other attractions. Dubai Bowling Center (DBC) is open Sunday-Wednesday from 10am to 12am and 10am to 1am Thursday-Saturday. 04 339 1010. bowlingdubai.com
