Opened in 2010, this NYC-themed bowling spot features seven funky lanes (only five are appropriate for kids, though). At the "Chinatown Lounge," young players can hit a giant gong when they bowl a spare or strike; there's also a three-dimensional dragon that pops off the wall. For Skee-ball, caramel corn, and carnival kitsch, head to the Coney Island room*. Other kid-friendly lanes include Central Park, Art Deco and Pop New York. As with most bowling alleys, lightweight balls and bumpers are available for tykes. If you get hungry while bowling, order treats from chef David Burke's menu (mini corn dogs** are a kid fave) and they'll be delivered straight to your lane.
