My husband and I spent a lot of time brainstorming activities that would be fun, inexpensive, and easy for our son's birthday party. A friend of mine recommended that we have the party at a bowling alley, more specifically at the Gopher Spot. Her son had been to birthday party at the Gopher Spot and had an excellent time. We thought this was a great idea, especially for energetic boys, so we proceeded to book the party. The Gopher Spot was extremely helpful in helping us plan and execute the party. We were able to reserve two bowling lanes (with bumpers), as well as a party space. The Gopher Spot provided us with birthday cake, decorations, gift bags, food, and drinks. Additionally, the employees working there were extremely helpful and took care of everything we needed. I was really surprised at the design of the Gameroom. The walls were bright colors, it was very open and inviting, and there was this really cool wall made out of bowling pins. In my experience with bowling alleys, they tend to be dark and musty places. The Gopher Spot was not like this at all, and really made our experience that much more fun. Ultimately all of the kids left the party happy, and my husband and I were happy as well. We were able to enjoy the party, rather than have to be in charge of every detail - like making food, entertaining kids, and cleaning up. I would definitely recommend the Gopher Spot to anyone, especially to families. My family has been back to the Gopher Spot multiple times to bowl, because it is such a fun family activity and because we have always had a positive experience!
