Ten Pin Bowling

Bowlarama Palmerston North is a 20-lane fully automated Ten Pin Bowling Centre that hosts the latest AMF Pinspotters and has automatic scoring.

All you have to do is, pop on a pair of bowling shoes, grab yourself a ball and let our equipment do the hard work for you.

However, if bowling is not your thing, we also have pool tables, arcade games, air hockey tables and a licensed bar. We stock a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages such as fizzy cans, water, iced tea, energy drinks and a selection of the Bundaberg range.

If you feel like something to nibble on, we have pies, sausage rolls, chippies, lollies and a freezer full of delicious Tip Top ice creams.

Please remember that it is always best to book over the winter months and please don’t forget your socks. They are a must to wear with our bowling shoes.
