Attraction Information

Previously a 1st Bowl, the new and improved MFA Bowl Ilkeston offers 16 lanes of addictive gameplay where when you use the ball rolling ramps and the pop up gutter guards even the youngest of the party stands a fighting chance!

All kids love sensing the potential to beat the grown ups so bowling is ideal for a family tournament and with fully automatic scoring systems once you've argued over the names there's nothing to worry about except showing the kids who's boss. Or not!

There are also a variety of lightweight balls for smalls that want to throw their own plus full normal ball range and a full shoe hire bar packing most sizes. There's great disabled access at this branch too and with multi game discount deals you can smash up the pins without breaking the bank. Then use your savings in the arcade and diner!
