Party Planning Information
How important is the headcount when planning my party?
One word: Very! We want to make every party special, which means we rely on your headcount to determine things like your lanes/party space, the amount of food, and any added staff we may need to make your event the absolute best it can be. Remember, we can always accommodate more guests if space allows, so give us your best estimate and stay in touch with our team!
When is the best time to schedule my party?
We will work to accommodate your birthday party, corporate event or adult party with your busy schedule. Speak with our team of professionals and we’ll design a celebration that fits your needs.
I know some establishments “pre-set” shoes for an event… why don’t you do that?
Simple—because we care about you. It’s true. We avoid pre-setting shoes because it forces your guests to search around for their right size. That takes time—time that you could be bowling! So instead, we have all of our guests simply visit the front desk and ask for their size in person.
What staff will be available to ensure our party event goes off without a hitch?
Our lane servers! They’re here to help you with everything from imputing your name into the scoring systems to making sure you have a steady stream of stellar food and drink from our laneside menus. All events receive exceptional guest care from our team.
Are there any activities besides bowling that we can add to our party?
Of course—bowling is just the beginning! Our venue features a host of activities that you can enjoy off the lanes, we feature arcade games, billiards, electronic darts, video games and prize games. Give us a call and learn more about all the fun features available at Meridian Lanes.
We may end up having too much fun—can we stay longer once our party officially ends?
We know what you mean—once you hit the lanes and start having fun, it’s pretty hard to stop! We’d love to keep the party going, so as long as availability permits, you can always add more games on the day of your event. Just ask our team and we will connect you with our on-site sales staff; they’ll be more than happy to assist you!
What if I want bumpers during the event? (We expect a lot of gutterballs.)
Then bumpers you shall have (kids only)! Bumpers are available and can be requested at any time—right up through when you show up for your event. If you haven’t completed your reservation already, just indicate your request for bumpers in the “additional information” box of the Guest Info section.
I’m a chef/my friend’s a chef/I know this great caterer, so... Can I bring in my own food & drinks?
You know that we’d love to accommodate, but unfortunately, no outside food or beverage is allowed into our venues with the exception of birthday cakes. We do this to ensure the health and safety of all our guests (since so many people these days have allergies, we want to limit the possibility of anyone experiencing a preventable allergic reaction from an outside ingredient). Plus... have you tried our food? That’s something we wouldn’t want to deny anyone!
