Birthday Party Policies


You may arrive up to 15 minutes early to check-in, get guests shoes and put place settings on tables, etc.

1. Birthday Parties have their Lane(s) and table area for a total of 2 Hours.

> If you need time to open presents, have cake, etc., please plan your bowling time accordingly as we will begin to clean your party area immediately at the end of your scheduled time to prepare for incoming parties and reservations. We suggest you plan to bowl for 60-90 minutes and leave at least 30 minutes for cake and presents.

> Your area includes your lane(s) reserved and tables immediately behind your lane(s) on the concourse. Due to other activities in our centers and other customers on adjacent lanes, we are unable to provide you with a larger party area, tables or seating greater than 6 guests per lane reserved.

> If you need a separate, larger party area with more seating, please inquire about the additional booking of our meeting room. Call Terri Jo Podraza at the center you reserved or email at tjpodraza@48bowl.com

2. You may bring cake, cupcake, cookies and goodie bags. PLEASE bring your own place settings for these. We do not provide plates, forks, or napkins for this.
