Exploring The Bowling + Arcade at Park City Mall [Lancaster, PA]

The other day my husband and I wanted to surprise the kids by taking them bowling. We googled places in our area, and Round 1 Bowling & Amusement came up. We decided to head over, not expecting too much more than a decent bowling alley.

Overwhelming and fun

We were met with flashing lights, music, and more arcade games than I've ever seen in one spot before. The kids were ecstatic, asking to try allll the games. As a parent, it was definitely overwhelming, but fun, too. After letting the kids try out a few arcade games (all of them without luck, of course) we went over to the bowling alley to play a game.

We had a blast. The service was amazing, the area was nice and clean, and the hour we spent playing was over before we knew it. Many of the bowling alleys I've been to in my life have often been sort of dark-lit and run-down. Almost like a blast from the past that they forgot to update. This place was the opposite of that.


The bowling and arcade at Park City Mall are run by Round1 Bowling & Amusement, a multi-entertainment company. Usually, they are offering bowling, arcade games, billiards, karaoke, and more, all in the same place, located in a large, bright indoor facility complex.

Their vision is "Everyday Fun for Everyone, Everywhere". We had fun, and that's a win in my book.

Address: Round1 Bowling & Amusement is located at 142 Park City Center, Lancaster, PA 17601.

Psst - if you want to avoid the crowds, head over early in the day. We went around 10:30 am, and it was fairly quiet. Right around lunchtime, when we left, it was packed with people.
