Addison >300 Dallas
Oh man, I had high hopes for this place. I planned to go there last Saturday night with some friends, and it was awful because it was so incredibly expensive.
I called ahead and was told shoe rental was $4.50 and each game was $7.00 per person after 5pm, so I said to myself "that's pretty expensive, but this place looks like a blast on the website."
When we get there, it's not quite a blast. They say it's like a club on their website during Xtreme Bowling, but it's really not. It's more like Dave & Busters in the billiards area, and just slightly dark and black-lit in the bowling area. Commonly overplayed alternative rock music fills the establishment. The only thing I can't complain about is the fact that they didn't allow smoking. Which is a GREAT thing.
The worst part is, I was only told a "half truth" on the phone. The FIRST game of bowling is $11.50 per person, and each one following that is a still outrageous $7.00 per person. Now I don't know about you, but when you're in your 20's and with a bunch of college friends, it's no fun when you're paying almost as much as you make at your job just to bowl for an hour. (So we didn't bowl).
What we ended up doing was signing up to be on the wait list for playing pool, and we messed around in the overly expensive arcade there while waiting.
Common arcade games; smaller selection than Dave & Busters, but same games with the prices raised. As usual (it seems) no fighting games like Street Fighter... nothing competitive at all... The prices were really high, for example, to play the Ferrari F355 Challenge racing game, it was $1 per play, which is insane for a game that came out in about 1996 as far as I know.
Anyway, after about 45 minutes, we finally got a pool table. Pool was $12 an hour, and well... it's pool, so whatever.
Great place for corporate events. 300 in Adisson offers a variety of options, all great for corporate outings, such as teambuilders or company wide mixers. My company recently had event at this location and they met our needs to the fullest extent. We were able to reserve 5 private lanes separated from the other lanes inside another part of the building for our own use. Catered dinner was provided along with our own bar managed by our own bartender. The atmosphere was perfect for our celebratory occasion. We were not limited to only bowling as others were free to try out the miniature golf course inside the building (with black light and a creative theme for the design of each hole). I highly recommend 300 for a night out with friends and bowling, games, and drinks and/or food as well as larger group activites for companies and community groups.
