Thunder Bowl is a great go-to place for casual fun, especially if you want to throw a party. Out of its 22 modernized lanes, only two are 'bumper lanes' for kids. Their VIP rooms (HK$2,000 for two hours) can partition those two lanes for an exclusive private space. These lanes are lit to give the party an extra disco feel! They also offer private coaching sessions. Other facilities at this hangout place include a pool table, internet stations, a pro shop, and a restaurant.
