The kitschy undersea decor delivers perfectly with themed lighting, backdrops, custom bowling balls that look like an octopus or mermaid. It also comes with wooden lanes having faux sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater critters.

"Many full lanes of bowling offer a unique underwater ocean experience! Custom bowling balls that bear the likeness of octopus, mermaids, camouflage and more! “Dock” wooden lanes feature underwater scenery of sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater species! Handpainted murals and fish hanging from the ceiling bring everything together for a deep sea dive like no other. You have to see it to believe it!" the website description reads.

Ever since the place opened up, many people have been flocking to see it and some of them even took to Twitter to share their experiences. "Went bowling tonight to celebrate my friends little brothers birthday at an underwater themed bowling alley. Pretty cool! C:" Meanwhile another added, "There’s a pretty good #Groupon for 6 to go bowling. 2hrs and comes with 2 jugs of pop and 2 pizzas. Cool underwater decor."

Apart from the amazing bowling alley, you can also treat yourself to tasty American fare, or stop by the island-theme bar if you are in need of a cocktail or two. And with the booze, you can also enjoy some tropical fishes swimming in a 750-gallon saltwater aquarium.

Meanwhile, Uncle Buck's general manager Kyle Holdorf at Altoona said that his themed arcade sits in the former dining area and will have 50 gaming machines, reports Des Moines Register.

 

 



 

 

Holdorf added that machines will include games like Tomb Raider, Jurassic Park, and Halo. And if you are a bit of an old school then there are other classic arcade games like basketball shooting machines and skee ball. The arcade runs on a card-based system and will feature a redemption counter with prizes.

"A lot of the stuff you would expect in an arcade, we'll be featuring," Holdorf said.
