Planning Tips

  • 1.
    What kind of parties can be booked online?
    Good question! Currently, Kids Birthday Parties with 5-20 children and Adult Social Events and Birthday Parties (select times & dates only) with 5-20 guests can be booked using our convenient online interface. All other parties require a little extra TLC, so simply fill out the form on the page you are directed to and click “Submit.” Your request will be sent directly to our rock-star team of party planning professionals who will contact you as soon as possible to help personally plan and book your event.
  • 2.
    What if I'm not absolutely, positively sure about my party's final headcount?
    We get it: party guests don't always RSVP ASAP. And that's totally okay—just give us your best estimate for now. You'll be able to lower your headcount up to 5 days prior to your event—and don't forget, you can add to your headcount up until the day of your party! (Additions are based on lane availability.) Want more info? For full terms and conditions, just reference http://www.amf.com/online-booking-terms.
  • 3.
    How many people are assigned to each lane?
    A maximum of 6 people may be assigned to a single lane. To determine how many lanes you'll need, just divide the total number of guests by 6 (and remember to add an extra lane for any remaining guests). So, for example, if you have between 7-12 people in your party, you will receive 2 lanes for your event.
  • 4.
    What is your cancellation policy?
    Need to cancel? That's fine—we just need some lead time. You can cancel your event up to 10 days before the date of the event for a full refund. Unfortunately, if you cancel your event less than 10 days before the event date, we are unable to cancel your reservation or issue a refund. To find out more, visit http://www.amf.com/online-booking-terms to view our full terms and conditions.

  • 5.
    What if I want bumpers during the event? (We expect a lot of gutterballs.)
    Then bumpers you shall have! Whether you’ve got kids on the lanes or adults who haaaate gutterballs, 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.
  • 6.
    What if I want glow-in-the-dark bowling? (aka cosmic bowling)
    That's great! We love cosmic bowling too—it’s lots of fun (especially for parties). The availability of cosmic bowling varies by center, so contact us at booking@amf.com and we'll follow up with the staff at your preferred center to see if it's possible to make cosmic bowling a reality at your next party.
  • 7.
    What does the set-up/arrangement of the party area look like? Where will my guests be eating? Will they be on the lanes or in the snack-bar area?
    Well, you sort of snuck three questions into that one question... but that's okay. Our food is served laneside so that you can keep the party going! Though it varies by center, food for your party will, in most cases, either be plated and served to your guests or served buffet-style.
  • 8.
    Who will be serving us and attending to our requests/needs during the party?
    That would be a lane server—one of our skilled staff members who attends to our guests and is available to all parties. If you'd like extra attention, you can also purchase your very own dedicated/private event host and/or lane server to cater just to your needs. Interested in a dedicated event host and/or lane server? Contact us at booking@amf.com for pricing and availability.
  • 9.
    How many staff members will be waiting on us during the party?
    Hmmm... that's kind of hard to say. Our lane servers are shared resources, so it usually depends on the center's staff availability at the time. If you'd like the extra attention though, you can always purchase your very own dedicated/private event host and/or lane server to cater just to your needs. (It gives your party that extra something special.) Just contact us at booking@amf.com for pricing and availability.
  • 10.
    Can I bring my own food/drinks? How about my own birthday cake?
    You know that we'd love to accommodate, but, unfortunately, no outside food or beverage is allowed into the center except for birthday cakes. Your safety is our number one priority, and in order to ensure a safe environment for all of our guests—especially as it pertains to the preparation, service, and delivery of food and beverage items—we assume the liability as the sole provider of all food and beverage within our centers. With so many of our guests experiencing food allergies, this policy has become a necessity, and we hope you understand. If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact us at booking@amf.com. We'd love to hear from you!
  • 11.
    If I’m planning a kids birthday party, does the birthday child bowl for free?
    The birthday child counts towards the total headcount of your party.
  • 12.
    What if I need to change/edit my reservation after I've already checked out?
    Everybody makes mistakes (it's why the "undo button" was invented, right?). If you need to make any edits to your reservation after you book, just send us an email at booking@amf.com and we'll get back to you right away. You can also call us at 866-211-3369, between Monday and Friday from 9:30am-8pm EST.
  • 13.
    What if I still can't find what I'm looking for?
    Bono had the same problem back in the '80s. Lucky for you, what you're looking for is a whole lot easier to find—and we can help. Simply send us an email at booking@amf.com and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. You can also call us at 866-211-3369, between Monday and Friday from 9:30am-8pm EST.
