    Eh. While it would be cool to have one, I have yet to see one where it is integrated into a home without destroying it architecturally. In my opinion, they only work if they are in the basement of the home and are completely unnoticeable when viewing an aerial of a home or standing outside. Even then, I’d much rather have a private theater and additional garage space.

    Nope, I would rather save the money, go to the bowling alley where there are tons of people that you know and don’t know which is the fun of it, and get an alcoholic drink and some chicken wings, mozzarella sticks and a burger and have fun.

    A home gym and a bowling alley are two of the biggest wastes of money and the most lonely activities that you can do by yourself. Even if you invite people over it still kind of sucks.

    The whole idea is about TELLING people you have a bowling alley in your house, not actually about bowling. How many people actually need a wine cellar? It’s about showing that you can afford it.

      Absolutely not, a wine cellar has a specific purpose, it is there to store, preserve and to protect your expensive bottles of wine for years even decades to come as they appreciate in value. It is absolutely nothing like a bowling alley.

      If you collect expensive bottles of wine, where exactly are you going to store them other than a wine cellar? If you need to bowl, you hop in your car and go to the local alleys.

        Does a bowling alley not serve a specific purpose? If you collect wine, you get a wine cellar. If you bowl a lot, you get a bowling alley. Your logic is kinda weird.

          His point is that if you are a serious wine connoisseur, you are NOT going to have some storage unit somewhere that you keep it all…you’re going to have a purpose-built room in your home. With a bowling alley, there are much more practical ways of catering to your hobby than by having one in your home…even many professional bowlers would probably stop short of having a bowling alley in their home. The wine cellar is there to house your collection…there is no equivalent for bowling…bowling is an activity, not a collection.

          I weep for whatever school you attended. It is sad you can understand something as simple as this.

          If you have wine and collect it there is nowhere else you can keep and store it other than in your home and somewhere with the proper humidity and temperature. If you bowl you can get in your car and go to any of a dozen bowling alleys that are probably within 5 miles of your house.

            Your opening statement is ironic. You can’t even put someone down properly. Oh how I weep for whatever school you attended.

    If I was to have a bowling alley in my house, it would be in a separated section of the home, where it would be a part of a “game room” type of place. I wouldn’t have soo many colors and tacky pictures, but they look like they can do a nice job with the alley itself. I like bowling, so I could see myself using it fairly often.

    I dunno… It’s not my first choice. I’d honestly rather have a giant ballroom than a bowling alley. But that last picture is pretty cool… 🙂

    $100,000 for a BOWLING ALLEY??!! That’s more than some houses!!

    The reason to have a bowling alley is to be able to tell everyone that you have a bowling alley. I don’t have one, maybe next house. I don’t have a wine cellar, don’t drink much wine. I do have a beer storage unit, a really big refrigerator. The thing that I don’t understand is the same people that think nothing of 15 to 40 mil price on a home balk at 100K for an toy for the house.

      Thank you. When I was reading that I thought a hundred grand sounded reasonable. If someone *really* likes it, then go for it. But when the time comes to sell the house, don’t expect too many people to clamor over that feature.

          The thing is, if someone is looking for a house in the NY or LA or DC or DFW or Miami metro areas, oe really anywhere in California, they are going to see from 5 to 15 houses with God knows how many babbling talking heads trying to tell them …………….. The house with the bowling alley will stick out, be memorable, and maybe easier to sell because it will not blend in. If you think about it a wine cellar or swimming pool or whatever is to be expected in this price range, but an elevator or a bowling allley tends to make a house stand out.

            You are wrong. All those things that people think will help make their house unique and stand out in the end make them next to impossible to sell. You want to make a house virtually unsellable, put an indoor pool in. Then put and elevator and a bowling alley in. You do know that with all of those comes huge maintenance issues and bills?

            In addition to maintenance and potentially failure of an elevator in a home where no one might know you are trapped, elevators also have to be routinely inspected. Look at how often the machines breakdown in a bowling alley, now think of having to foot that bill out of your pocket every time that happens. A lot of people would rather just drive down to the alley and bowl for a nominal cost.

            The world is full of people who put “cool” stuff in their homes thinking that everyone else was going to love it when then went to sell it only to get a rude awakening that it was not so.

    A bowling alley is a nice addition, and I understand how they cost almost up to a hundred thousand dollars……the installation and labor….and the type of equipment you have, etc…

    Bowling Alley in your house? What a boring way to waste a lot of money.

    Like has been said, if someone wants a bowling alley they should have it. But, for me personally I would never have a bowling alley, regardless of how impressive it is (although my friends would not be impressed…confused as to why I had it, yes, but not impressed).

    I’d personally probably never have a bowling either, regardless of how much money I had. I DO see the appeal, however. If I were the “big boys and their toys” type, and often had a bunch of people over to my place to casually entertain, then maybe I’d do it. Similarly, if I were very rich and were inclined to spoil my kids, maybe I’d do it so that they could use it, with or without a group of their friends coming over.

    The only thing I wanna know is whether these custom home bowling alleys come with a greasy-looking guy that you run to when the computer locks up or the pins get stuck.
