Jeff Meads, the owner of three bowling centers in northeastern North Carolina, has done it again.
His vision of bringing new and exciting things to his centers continued recently when he decided to upgrade Albemarle Lanes to a new look inside.
Using AMF’s Quibica theme, Albemarle Lanes has gone away from the background images that have been in place above the end of the lanes for years and installed newer, refreshing, colorful backgrounds.
To go with this, Albemarle Lanes has also done away with the old, CRT style TV monitors above the approaches and installed flat-panel monitors for the scores to appear on.
This change in monitors is in preparation for another big upgrade coming in the next few weeks.
Albemarle Lanes will be doing away with the old scoring system that has been in place from the beginning of automatic scoring at the center.
Replacing the old system will be Quibica Scoring, which you may have seen at the Beach Bowling Center. The graphics are much better and sure to make for family fun when used during open bowling sessions.
Keeping with the transformation to a more family fun center, Albemarle Lanes has also created Family Fun Time on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4-6 p.m.
For $39.99, you get a lane for two hours for up to six people. This includes pizza, drinks, shoes, and all you can bowl in those two hours.
The savings is over half of what it would normally cost for a family to come in and bowl.
Also, recently, Albemarle Lanes has upgraded its sound system and unlike in the past, there is always music playing in the center at a tolerable level for families, playing from a national DJ service dedicated to bowling centers. This DJ service is also playing during Rock n Bowl on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
