Metro’s first mini bowling alley opens in Blackstone

Bob and Willie’s Wonderbowl started with an idea. “We just clicked and the more researched, the nicer it looked. We are now eight months later and Wonderbowl is open,” said Chad Schoeman. Schoeman is the operations manager. He said it was no secret that people were interested. “We kept our doors open throughout the construction period. We let people in, let people watch,” he said. “See and explain what’s going on and what’s going to happen.” Residents of the area are curious about what would come to live there. “They’re like, ‘What is it? What is mini bowling,'” he said. Mini bowling is similar to traditional bowling except the lanes are off the ground and shorter. The balls are half the size of regular bowling balls, but the game is still played the same. Patrons can also break the lanes and play arcade games. Schoeman said there is also a full bar. As soon as it gets warmer, Wonderbowl has plans for the parking lot. “We have a large 1,500-foot patio outside and a full-time food truck,” he said. “We’re taking the whole parking lot and astroturfing it to turn it into an event space with bags, bocce, picnic tables, and enjoying the weather.” Wonderbowl’s grand opening is Monday and Schoeman said they were ready! Wonderbowl is open seven days a week from 3pm to 2am
