Eden visitors to be bowled over
THE latest scoring technology, 22 lanes, an amusement arcade and a stylish bar and diner await Wycombe's keen bowlers when Eden opens.
This week, the Bucks Free Press took a sneak preview inside the new AMF Bowling Centre - one of the main leisure attractions of the multi-million pound centre due to open in just three weeks' time.
The High Wycombe centre is a unique design for AMF, with curved interiors and colourful lighting to tie in with the architecture of Eden.
Screens above each lane offer the latest graphics, including the opportunity to put players' photos on screen.
Sharing platters from the diner can be ordered to seats by the lane, so players can snack as they bowl, while a range of burgers are available for sit-down meals.
For a VIP experience, the centre offers the first AMF private lounge, with four dedicated lanes joined to a soft-seating area with plasma screens, WiFi connections and a Karaoke machine designed for birthdays, corporate events, Stag and Hen dos and tournaments.
Bosses said the lounge has already been booked for six children's birthday parties on the first Saturday after opening.
The centre can host up to 400 people at a time. The centre will open for business during the day on Thursday, March 13 when Eden launches. AMF mascot mice Bumper and Squeak will be on hand to welcome bowlers and show them around.
It will be closed in the evening for an invitation only corporate launch.
A bowling game costs £5.50 for adults and £4.50 for juniors. There will be special offers of three games for £7.50 during off peak hours and an evening offer of £10 for unlimited bowling from 9pm.
