Since SM fashion hall.in megamall is not that old, their bowling center is still clean and i guess really well-maintained. Lighting is good for the players. I just hope that their shoes for rent were all sanitized before letting other users wear it. Haha!

Despite my healthy appetite for food, I also enjoy doing sporty things. (Most of my friends don't believe me though.) I love biking, table tennis, laser tag (if you consider that as a sport), and bowling. I am also game to try other things like paintball and hiking. Anyway, I was thrilled when SM Megamall revived its bowling alley. Oh yeah, the gutter queen is back!

My friend A and I decided to be a bit sporty one Saturday and we thought of giving the bowling alley at SM Megamall a try. My sister wanted to join as she needs to do something active as plus points for her P.E. class.

I arrived early so that we could get a parking spot and we decided to have a quick brunch at Figaro. BIG MISTAKE. When A finally arrived, we have to wait for a spot. It didn't take long though. I'd say our wait was roughly 20 minutes maximum.

As soon as we heard our names, we approached the cashier, paid the PHP165 per head fee (shoe rental included) and collected two balls each.

I felt bad for my sister as she had a hard time lifting the balls.

When the game started, my sister had a good lead and A and I were noobs. But as the game progressed, my sister ended up being last with A as first and me as second. But the thing is, our average as a group was still terrible.

We had fun though! And for PHP165, it wasn't a bad deal at all.

P.S. Make sure you bring with you a pair of socks. Wait time isn't that bad as most teams just play one round. You could also do other activities there but I find it embarrassing to dance in front of strangers.

My son Latrell Joshua L 14th birthday celebration part 3!

This was my first time here at the SM Bowling Alley in Megamall while hubby and the kids is their second time.127923 the fee is around 200 plus including the shoe rental of 50 pesos. I always go to Paengs Bowl in Eastwood since it is nearer to my place but the moment I stepped at this bowling alley, now I liked it more than in Eastwood.

This bowling alley is fresh, clean, spacious , they even have videoed there and billiards. What I loved most here is the couch where in non players can seat and relax while waiting just like what I did because the boys are just the one who played.

Definitely I will back again. They served snacks also here. Service is good also and the staffs are accommodating and considerate128077

My friends and I went on a bowling game one Saturday afternoon. We purchased one of their ongoing promos that if you availed 3 games (Php180/game per head), you'll get a 50% on the 3rd game, which means Php450/head for 3 games. The queue was quite long and we waited for more than an hour or so to play. 128532128532128532 We also learned that 4 lanes were already reserved to Phil Azkals players that day so there were only few lanes that were open for walk-in guests.

It was a 3-on-3 match and I was surprised that I did more strikes and least gutters this time. #HatawPaMore But kudos to everyone who played their best even though it was really painful to the arms. 128517

The customer service was from bad to average. My friend was ignored several times by their masungit staff in the concierge. Muntik ng mag-beast mode buti napigilan! 128514 I think the only markdown in this place is their service!

Found this bowling alley really small. It took us at least 30 minutes to wait before being given one because it was full when we arrived. We were there on a Sunday night so I should not complain 128514

Place was really good. AC units were functioning well. They have karaoke and billiard area and some snacks shop.
I just had some problems with the bowling alley, there were a lot of times when the refilling of the pins took a while to finish. 128513

All in all, I liked this new and clean bowling alley. 165bucks for an hour and additional 50php for shoe rental. I saw the person spray disinfectant when I returned my shoes 128077🏻

This is a pretty small bowling alley with just about 10 lanes I think. They have a pool area in one section and another area for people waiting.

Trying to go on a weekend? My advice is to go one hour earlier so you can reserve a lane. Or call so you can be included in their waiting list (but they won't reserve it for you if you're not there when it's your turn)

Don't pick lane 1! (See photo above) The wall is too close to the lane! It's weird and will feel awkward when you play there.

They allow reservations on weekdays but make sure your group is complete by the time you get there or they will bug the heck out of you - like what happened to us and team clingy several weeks ago!

When we went (team looloo vs team clingy bowling challenge), the lady behind the cash register was mean and snobby. If you talk to her, she doesn't even look at you. And when she did answer your questions, she sounded like she was about to throw a b**** fit! 128563 I thought she was only mean to me (I even smiled at her a lot - to no avail) but when Chichi T came, she also complained lol.

Found out it was because that day was her last day! I was about to confront her but her coworker told me to just leave her be and that she's leaving soon anyway. The other coworker was definitely a lot nicer.

Anyway, it's still a good spot for bowling - AC is pretty good and the lanes are not too dry. The pins fall off weird though - like they're too light or something.

(Thank you so much to Team Clingy for taking us on even on a Thursday night! Had fun guys! 128588127923 Neil R Jenn N Dastine S Chichi T Zia M Russel F Kirby G RK B Gio C)

We took off our foodie hat for a moment and went on a bowling game last Monday! We were challenged by the #TeamLooloo for a little bowling match and we were thrilled of what's gonna happen on the game.

As always, I'm the earliest among everyone! 128110🏼 It's been a while since the last time I played bowling (about 5 years ago) and I did quite good, but not as good as my fellow team members before when I joined the tournament in our company. But that was a long time ago, so I'm quite nervous that I might fail my team mates! 128517

I played on the second set alongside with Pam, Zia and Roegan. Teaming up with these 3 was quite a load on the shoulder because they're all good! Was really surprised that I do well on the game and ended up having a total of 116pts! Woohoo! 127881127882128170🏼 I felt happier when our team scored the highest among the 4 teams that night, so that was really rewarding! I didn't have any strikes that night and mostly spares! Lol.

The place was spacious, although not as big as Paeng's and Coronado; but was actually nice! They have billiard tables on the side, snack bar and bathrooms on the end side of the hall. Their A/C wasn't on full power so it was quite a "sweaty" game!

After the game, I really felt like my right arm was in pain; but at least, we all had fun that night!!!

It was nice to see you again #teamclingy, too bad we're incomplete! Glad to see you again Odell R, Pam L, Erick B, Patrick B & Peanut D after a while, and Roegan T after almost 2 years!!! It was also nice to meet you in person, Gwen I!!! 128522

Last Monday, we got an email from Peanut D challenging us to a bowling match! Little did we know, they played bowling pala last Monday. UNFAIR!!! 128557

It was Team |ooloo vs. Team Clingy last night and I have never bowled in my life. Sad to say, I don't think I could bowl to save my life. #TeamGutter ako! HAHAHA! Sabi sa inyo kain nalang tayo eh!

I wasn't supposed to play because my right arm is still sore from carrying my friend's baby last Tuesday, but I still pushed through because of the pressure from #TeamClingy! 128514 So yeah, my right arm is practically useless right now HAHAHA! I could not even open the car door with my right hand. But whatever, I had fun last night and that's all that matters!

So on to reviewing the place. SM Megamall has a very spacious bowling alley. They also have their own snack bar, and some billiards table. One thing they can improve on is definitely their customer service. I heard that one staff was really masungit last night. They should also improve their A/C system because it was a bit hot and Zia had to bring out her fan. Their washrooms aren't as clean as it should be, I think they should have one attendant present at all times to make sure that the washroom is spotless.

I remember when bowling used to be such a huge thing in the 90s, and I'm happy to see families playing last night. Maybe I should take my family and friends bowling next time!

It was nice seeing you again, P and Pam L!
Nice to finally meet you Odell R (we were looking for a fat clown, we didn't recognize you!!!), Patrick B, Erick B, Roegan T, and Gwen! Eating contest nalang next time ha? 128517

WHAT THE HELL I LOOK AWKWARD. 128514 And it's obvious that I have 0% talent in bowling. Oops. 128584

This is my first time to try bowling, actually. My former workmate invited me to go bowling today after my gym time. I said yes since I don't wanna stay at home on weekends. 128522

I forgot the price, but you have to buy socks at the counter for the bowling shoes if you have no socks. 128513 It was a fun moment cos I don't really know how to play, wasn't even able to hit all pins. 128541

Wanna come back and play again soon! 127923

It was pretty ridiculous how this place is fairly new, yet the pins kept falling from the...whatever you call that contraption that comes down to pick them up in between turns.

There were only 12 lanes, and that's too few for such a big mall. The acoustics were also far from stellar, but it's a bowling alley, I guess?

The lanes were also too oily! The bowling balls just...skid instead of rolled. Hirap pumektus! Hahaha.

Overall, though, we still had a good time.

We had more food planned for our Mega foodtrip, but we needed a break. So for our 2 hour break from munching, we went bowling for some "exercise"!

The place is smaller than the usual bowling alleys. They have fewer lanes. Air conditioning was cool, and it was well lit. It smelled clean, unlike those old bowling places.

Overall, nice place for bowling since it's new. Hope they'll be able to maintain it para amoy bago pa rin next time.

We used the videoke for an hour in the bowling center 'coz not only does the place have bowling lanes, they also have billiards, videoke rooms and a mini bar. The videoke room we were in was small and a bit hot inside. The sound system, flat screen tv and other services was okay but a bit of air-conditioning in the rooms would have been nice.

Wooo bowling!

Finally got the chance to try it out. I had high expectations about the place since it's fairly new.

And the expectations were met 128516

Lanes were really really nice! Lanes were clean and well-oiled!

My only complain is the lack of lanes. This bowling alley is too small. I think they only have 13 lanes. The place got packed early. Good thing we were able to play early.

They also have pool tables, PS4 and
XBOX One consoles.

Here are the rates (as far as I can remember):

Bowling - 145 per head per game
Billiards - 245 per hour

Forgot the rates for the console games (because PC is WAY BETTER).

Can't wait to try ice skating next time! lol

PS - 2/3 games we played, I got a score of 100+ 127881
