2 of us came here for an evening of bowling and had fun, but will not be returning as it is very expensive. The price of a game was not clearly displayed and we did not check before playing, if we had known, we certainly would not have kept playing on. At the end of each game, a prompt will appear on the screen saying 'if you wish to play on player 1 bowl again'. We did not realise that we would be charged for each game we played as this was not made clear. 4 and a bit games later and 2 drinks, we were shocked when the total came to over 100 euro for 2 people.

Be warned: check the price and ask the staff to clarify before you play.

11.5 EUR per game for adult. 8.5 for kids.

Almost 11 EUR (yes 11!!!) for a pinte of Kwak.

6 runs to play. It can be REALLY busy if the weather is bad.

The bowling is the only activity in Flaine we found to be overpriced. We were told
we would pay afterwards (should have known!). 2 of us played 3 games and we were charged €60!!
Bowling alley broke down 4/5 times during the 3 games.
Won’t be going back!

Bonjour madame monsieur, Nous vous remercions d’avoir pris de vôtre temps pour écrire un commentaire au sujet de nôtre établissement, Nous sommes très surpris par vôtre étonnement au sujet des tarifs pour une partie de Bowling car les tarifs sont affichés au niveau de l’accueil, Vous avez donc forcément pris connaissance des tarifs avant de vous inscrire pour jouer.. Ceci étant dit, 24€ pour trois parties soit 8€ la partie de bowling par personne est le tarif Moyen au plus bas pratiqué par les établissements qui possèdent des machines automatiques homologuées et non pas à ficelles . Vous conviendrez que le coup d’exploitation n’est pas du tout le même et le jeux non plus . Vous avez également retenu le fait que la machine est tombée en panne à 4 reprise, Il faut savoir que les machines sont des vraies robots avec pleins de sécurité,il arrive qu’une quille peut se bloquer, au quel cas nous devons juste la débloquer ce qui prend en général 30secondes, ce qui a dû sûrement arriver pendant vos trois parties et donc sur un totale de 240 cycles....nous en sommes vraiment désolé. vous conviendrez que 4 fois sur 240 cycles ce n’est vraiment pas beaucoup. Nous espérons que vous avez passé un agréable séjour sur Flaine et sommes encore une fois désolé pour vôtre mal interprétation sur les points évoqués dans vôtre commentaire.. Sportivement , Galaxy Bowling de Flaine.

Really good bowling alley complete with bar and a small gaming area (pool, darts, a few ageing arcade machines). We’ve been going here for three years so far.

It is not, as other commenters have suggested, the cheapest bowling game you will have encountered - but like everything else at the top of the Alps, there is a premium.

We had a bowling game for me, wife and three children, plus 2 plates of fries, 2 pizza bruschettas, 4 Coronas, fruit juices for the children and the total was over 100 Euro. By way of comparison I spent that the night before on a one course meal for us at a nearby restaurant.

The children immediately forgot the restaurant meal. It’s like it never happened. Bowling? They talk about it as one of their favourite activities in Flaine.

Once we’ve finished the game then I changed some Euro notes at the bar for some coins to play on the arcades - another key focus of excitement for the children.

The manager is exceptionally accommodating and so are the staff.

Note the timings are displayed outside but expect it to open from 5pm during the ski season.

If you’ve young children like us, I’d recommend getting there early - just after they’ve opened at 5pm, as you are likely to find it relatively empty. But it does fill up really quickly especially on key vacation weeks. Once or twice we’ve left it late and found all lanes full at 530pm!

For adults and teens, I understand they’re open until 2am.

Having read reviews i was expecting the worse. How wrong. 10 Euros per adult per game or two games 18 Euro's. I know this isn't as cheap as at home but then your not in the Alps because its cheaper than Blackpool. Against other Ski resorts Val Thorens, Val D'Isere and Courchevel this is reasonable. A beer is 7.80 Euro. Staff where exceptionally helpful and in good spirit. Reading some of the previous reviews I struggle that pricing wasn't checked before the started playing. I couldn't imaging going for a meal and then complaining about the prices. Good pool tables as well but cues aren't the best (2 euros a game same as every where else in Flaine)

We paid 170 euro”s for 2 hours of bowling. We were completely shocked by the bill. The owner was not understanding and seeking confrontation instead of showing compassion for the insane prices.

Snowy day with no skiing so went along having read the reviews not sure what to expect. No queue, service was fine, shoes included if you have two games (18 euros pp) and a reasonable bar. One time the lane froze but the tech guy went straight round the back and sorted it out. We didn't;t think it was pricey - after all it is a ski resort!

If you book in advance you are still treated as a drop-in customer. You will have to wait as a drop-in. We spent an hour waiting. Customer service is zero. Take your money somewhere else!
