Don’t Leave Without: Trying your hand at cosmic bowling
Timber Lanes offers classic bowling on the cheap—at just $3 per game, you really can’t go wrong. You can keep it casual and go for open bowling, or get serious and join a league. Either way, Jesus from The Big Lebowski will watch over you from the wall and keep you honest. You’ll love the fun, friendly vibe of this relaxed bowling alley. We also love how kitschy and nostalgic the manual scoring is.
