Thunderbird Lanes doesn’t need any fancy gimmicks to bring the crowds. It takes an old-school approach to bowling—just as it has for the past half a century. The lanes are glossy, the scoring systems are vintage, and the noshes from the snack bar are hot. Of course, in keeping with the times, there have been a few updates over the years—including new synthetic lanes and a revamped game room.
If you haven’t already checked out this bowling alley near Dublin Village, set aside some time this weekend to enjoy a bit of friendly competition. Grab a pair of rental shoes, claim one of the lanes, and grab your bowling ball. As you throw strikes and spares, sip on a craft beer from the bar (some are brewed right here in Pennsylvania) and enjoy a few appetizers, like the nachos and fried pickles. The snack bar also offers pizzas, platters, and sandwiches.
