One Stop you need to make - @BowlmorLanes
If you know me, you might now that I am all about trying to make the most of memories with my children. I am blessed that we are able to go and do different things and each time we can, we are so thankful for the opportunity. Recently we were invited to Bowlmor in Chamblee for an event to see what all their place offered. As we walked in, I felt like this was a throwback to the traditional bowling alley / arcade that I remember going to as a child. I LOVED IT.

Once you enter Bowlmor, you are immediately greeted by the employees at the shoe and lane rental station. Right behind them you see a good amount of lanes that are calling your name to come and play. If that is not enough to grab you from the start, to the right is a smaller arcade area. Don't let the size fool you. Although it is smaller (I like that, since it keeps the bowling lanes the primary focus) they do still have a good selection of games. We had fruit ninja and other games that are popular now, but they also had classics such as skee ball that everyone has to play! Let me tell you this... You MUST PLAY the air hockey game. It can be played by up to 4 people at once. It has the basic big puck we are all used to, but they throw a curve your way... it also drops an additional number of pucks. I think it was around 15 of them that came out. Talk about laughing. Yep. We were cracking up. Laughing, smiling and even shrieking in the excitement! Since we came to bowl, we had to go and check out the arcade afterwards and we really had a good time.
As I mentioned, that had several lanes once you entered, but we were treated to the VIP area off to the left. The VIP room is a private room with 7 bowling lanes. It has its own bathroom area as well. One thing Broxton noticed was that you can pick a different theme to go on the screen for taking score. We had to do a couple different ones while we were there. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw all of these pictures already. If you don't follow me, head on over and do so now. I am sharing them here for those that are not on Instagram! After we enjoyed bowling a few games, they treated us to several menu items. I was impressed, as I normally think of greasy crap when I think of bowling alley food.
Mistake - thinking this was "bowling alley food." This was far from it. It was amazing and the chef was super nice. We were enjoying mac-n-cheese, chicken strips and even the tastiest "tater nachos" we have ever enjoyed. It was great and something you would expect in a restaurant, not the bowling alley. This is a place you come to eat at while you bowl, so take my word. Don't eat before you arrive, you want to try their food!
Next thing you know, they are bringing out more. We had a pizza cake, a 2 foot long hot dog and then this
burger monstrosity called the Behemoth burger. We were all trying to figure out the best way to show how big it was in a photo. Bottom line is this, you want to see it with your own eyes. Also, I do believe I will be treating the boys to this one day, just to see what they think! Not only was it huge.. it was tasty! (Even the part that I brought home for Marc to try!)
We had so much fun bowling, trying food and even visiting the arcade. If you are planning a trip to Atlanta this summer, make sure to add Bowlmor on the stop. If you live in or near the Atlanta area, make this a stay-cation destination at some point this summer. Must do: Bowl, play air hockey and check out the food!!!!
End results? Fun times and faces like this for the photo!
Just so you know, there are Bowlmor Lanes locations in other places, this was just my experience at the Atlanta location.
Have you ever been to Bowlmor before?
