Bowling is a Proven Destination Attraction

BEC Layout 24 Lanes 6 minilane - ArcadeTraditional bowling centers are proven destination showplaces, a testament to the popularity of the attraction.

Adding Infinity Bowling can make a good thing even better.

Bowling centers that include Infinity DuckPin or Ninja mini bowling to their traditional bowling business have expanded their demographic appeal. 

Smaller kids, even toddlers, bowl sooner and seniors can continue the sport they have long enjoyed.

Small Ball Party Room LayoutWhether you are a bowling proprietor looking to reconfigure the number of lanes in your center or a FEC planning an expansion or a new investor looking for a major attraction for your venue, Infinity Bowling makes dollars and sense.

The TenDuck Arcade

This floor plan represents the same space that (6) lanes of full size bowling with a 3′ side aisle would require.

(6) traditional lanes of bowling can be transformed into (6) 32′ Infinity DuckPin Bowling Lanes.

We can use the last 1/3 of the lanes, replace the pinsetters, use existing lanes, kickbacks and ball pit area.    

Add a redemption arcade with (2-3) billiard tables, (30-40) redemption games with a fully stocked prize counter.  (Layout 125′ x 37.5′)

ADDITIONAL BOWLING FACTS: 

  • Bowling is a lifetime sport and knows no age or physical barrier.  It is easily the favorite sport for family together participation.
  • Bowlers spend the most dollars on recreation and entertainment. They consume more food & beverages while participating than any other recreational activity.
  • Bowling is the number one participation sport in the United States. Close to 70 million people bowl at least once every year. 
  • Bowling is an indoor recreation sport that is enjoyed year round. Day or night, rain or shine, anytime is the right time to go bowling.


THE DOLLARS & SENSE OF BOWLING
:

  • Bowling is a cash business with little or no account receivables, inventory costs, spoilage or bad debt exposure.
  • Bowlers do other things while they bowl.  Ancillary income sources such as food, beverage, vending and arcade games contribute an additional 50 – 60% of total revenue.  If you plan to accommodate for party play, many cases this number totals over 200 – 300% of the bowling revenues.
  • Since the invention of the automatic pinsetter in the 1950’s, bowling has enjoyed consistent popularity during good and bad economic times. There are actually more bowlers participating in the sport today than there were in the bowling “boom” era of the late 1950’s.
  • Bowling is an unique industry in that few, if any direct costs are incurred in the production of the product. After the initial outlay of capital for equipment, there is virtually no marginal cost involved in the selling of a game of bowling. The obvious result is the ability to increase the volume of business (revenues) while incurring little, if any, additional expense.
