We were invited for the PR Launch of the refurbished Hollywood Bowl in Bradford and whilst the evening was geared towards the adult end of the market, there is plenty for families to enjoy. As such, here are 5 reasons to go:
If you park on Level 4 of the adjacent car park, you’re on the same level as Hollywood Bowl. This, coupled with a 100 yard walk, means it is ideal for families. There is step free access throughout so the venue is open for all. Follow the signs for Bradford Leisure Exchange (BD1 5LD)
Bowling Shoes are not needed
If you’re in flat shoes, obviously, you don’t need to get changed! Obviously if you actually like the shoes, you can wear some, but you don’t need to!
It looks cool
As some of the photos hopefully show, the lanes do look really cool and a little bit different to the old bowling lanes from the 1990’s
It is family friendly
There are bowling ramps between every 2 lanes and because it has just been refurbished, the toilets are of a decent size in case you’re still going into the toilets with a little one. Importantly, they offer a host service to the lanes and as such, they can bring drinks/food to the lane for you so you don’t have to stop the game.
There is more than just bowling
There is a Diner for snack meals and drinks as well as arcade machines to play on. The arcade machines are split into 2 sections – one where you play for fun and one where you play for tickets which you can collect to get prizes
You can find more about the Bradford venue here https://www.hollywoodbowl.co.uk/our-centres/bradford If you like the venue, they also do children’s birthday parties. Having seen the party area, it is importantly a little bit more secluded than the rest of the attraction, so it might be worth a visit if you’re planning a party!
