Very Interesting for an occasional bowler. The seating to watch the bowlers was okay. It is always great to watch people who can bowl strike after strike after strike.

What a beautiful complex. Lots of things to see and do. Lots of rain and storm.. If you're a baller I am sure you will love it.

The museum and hall of fame are very nicely done. The exhibits show the history of bowling equipment and are really interesting. The bowling alleys are upstairs. Not sure how many lanes they have but it is a LOT. Also a few vendors.

I'm not 100% sure but my guess would be no as I have not seen anyone using any devices that would use it nor have I seen any signs posting the availability of wifi there.
