In the United States the average cost of a Bowling alley built from concrete block with a steel roof deck and no basement is $119.75 per square foot. A 20,000 sq. ft. bowling alley would cost $2,395,000 to build.
$2,000,000.00It's not as simple as you'd thinkI went to Brunswick's website for this because they have good numbers.
By the time they get to the end of it, you're looking at between $90,000 and $165,000 per lane for a bowling-only center, depending on about three million variables.
BTW, why only 10 lanes? Most centers do it in multiples of four.
Brunswick is the way to go if you want the best, all-new equipment. However, if you are okay with reconditioned pinsetter machines, you should check out Fusion Bowling.
The costs factored in starting a bowling center greatly vary depending on many factors, including:
This is a question that can't be answered with a general "it'll cost two million dollars to build a bowling center" answer.
If you can find an old factory building that's big enough, that's in an area people will go to after dark, and that has a lot of parking, this would be the ideal thing. You could buy that, install all your equipment, and be in operation for less money and in less time than building a new structure.
If you need to build a new structure, things get a lot more complex. First, and most important, can you get enough land that's suitable for building a bowling center for a reasonable price? You will need at least 10 acres, and of that half has to be of a soil that is stable and has no shallow water under its surface.
Next, you need to decide what activities you're going to have in your center. We have a center in my town that has bowling, an indoor water park, outdoor attractions like mini-Golf and go-karts, and is attached to a hotel. (It's also on the road that leads to the biggest theme park in the Northwest.) Centers in places that allow gambling will offer casino gaming. A new bowling center that just has bowling shouldn't be built because people's tastes change. People will always like bowling but they don't want to only bowl, they want to do other things and you need to offer those things. If you have bowling AND theme park-style attractions you can capture both those dollars.
It will depend on the type of lane materials, pinsetters, ball returns and scoring system used.
The costs would vary depending on the size of the facility, types of lanes used, pin setters, scoring equipment, furniture, lockers, pro shop, office and other amenities.
It would cost about 165,000 dollars per lane for the land, building and equipment. An additional 50,000 dollars per lane for balls, bowling pins, retrieval equipment. and shoes would be added.
a freakin lot
Because the ball is rolled down a specific lane or alley towards the pins.
Where the pins are placed is called "the deck". The area where they fall back into is called "the pit".
Mainly wood for the lane, rubber or wood for the gutter, plastic or metal for the ball return.
No it will make you're ball go farther down the lane before it breaks towards the pins.
Go to the closest bowling alley and ask a front desk person or a manager about linage costs for the league you want to set up. You and the manager can discuss the possible day that you would like to start this league and what works for the bowling alley as far as lane availability.
Yes, you will have to talk to the manager of the bowling lane and clear it with them, it might also cost money.
They are placed in the lane gutters. Depending on the center, they may have automatic or semi-automatic lane bumpers which are mounted in the gutters or sides.
