A brand new bowling alley has opened at Lakeside Shopping Centre.

The facility is part of the huge multi-million pound extension at the centre.

The brand-new Hollywood Bowl will have 24-lanes including six VIP lanes with table service, an American-style Hollywood Diner, a stylish bar, and a fun-packed amusement area. As the first leisure attraction to open, Hollywood Bowl will attract families, friends and work colleagues all over the South East.

It will also be home to a Hollywood Diner with a full-size vintage pink Chevy car seating area, serving gourmet burgers, hot dogs, freshly made thick shakes - all served in retro milk bottles, and signature desserts.

Mark Johnson, Regional Manager for Hollywood Bowl intu Lakeside, said: “As one of the UK’s leading family leisure companies, we’re really excited to be opening a new centre at intu Lakeside, and we can’t wait to bring our bowling and all-round leisure experience to the people visiting intu Lakeside from late March.

“Whether it’s for family fun, kids’ or adults’ birthday parties, work functions, nights with dates or mates or simply an excuse to celebrate the weekend – you name it, our team has got it covered!”
