Although temperatures lately have been mild, in just a few weeks it’ll start feeling more like winter and we’ll be forced to retreat indoors for entertainment. Luckily, there’s a new attraction in the region that’s sure to keep us occupied all winter long! Kingpin’s Alley Family Fun Center in South Glens Falls recently opened its newly renovated game room, and man, does it look like fun!
Doug and Alison Bohannon took over as the new owners of Kingpin’s Alley in 2013 and inherited a small, outdated game room that wasn’t doing much for their customers. “Our goal is to provide a fun and entertaining family fun center for people of all ages,” says Alison, and the game room was falling short of their standards. The Bohannons decided to launch a complete overhaul of the game room to meet the demand of regular customers and enhance their birthday party program.
The remodel features 25 new games, including Down the Clowns, The Big Bass Wheel, Hoops, Ice Ball, driving simulators, and more! These state-of-the-art games give participants tickets that they can redeem for various prizes.
Kingpin’s regular customers were thrilled when news of the remodel was announced. The game room alone was a much-needed addition, but Alison reports that more upgrades have been added throughout the center as well. “We installed four giant drop-down screens, which play music, videos, TV shows, and sports programs,” she says. “The screens can be utilized by groups to present their own material, too.” The screens add a fun, new component to all parties making the use of slideshows and other personalized presentations possible!
The Bohannons aren’t stopping there, though. They’re already hard at work planning the next phase of upgrades! “We are investigating several new activities that no one in the Capital Region has!” Alison says. “Exciting things to come!”
Not only is Kingpin’s Alley a great place for family fun, but it’s also home to the largest range of bowling league opportunities in the area. If you’re interested in full-season scratch leagues, 8 for 8 short season fun leagues, senior leagues, corporate leagues, or more, contact Kingpin’s to get registered!
The weather may be getting colder, but there’s plenty of indoor fun to be had at Kingpin’s Alley! Head over the bridge and take advantage of the brand new game room today!
