The Scouting Report

Take a look at the pictures above. Or take a minute to look at the photos in our photo album. The bowling alley is not in the greatest shape. Don't expect a lot out of it. It does get the job done, though. It is a decent option if you are looking for a cheap place to bowl near Sinchon.

The Strikes (The Good Stuff)

  • It is cheap. (Roughly $4 a game.)
  • The location is good. It is very close to the bustling Sinchon scene.

The Gutter Balls (The Not-So-Good Stuff)

  • There is a lot of glare on the lanes. It is hard to see the lane markings.
  • The balls are very worn.
  • The facilities are old and cramped.
  • Don't come hungry. The only food and beverages here come from a couple of old vending machines with limited choices.

Extra Information

  • You probably won't find much English being spoken here. However, it is pretty simple to arrange to play a game via miming and awkwardness.
  • An old, tried-and-true nickname for this place is "The Bowling Plains". True enough, there is nothing fancy about these lanes.
  • Don't be cocky before a game.
  • Check out the toilets.
