Idle Hours Entertainment values the health and safety of our guests and staff. We have taken many steps in conjunction with state and federal guidelines assure that our customers enjoy themselves in a safe atmosphere.

For your health and safety, we continue to sanitize all surfaces using appropriate chemicals such as BioCide 100 between guests.  BioCide 100 kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria plus cleans and deodorizes in one easy step and continually santizes surfaces for up to 21 days.  We are using a backpack fogger that has been proven to be safe in order to sanitize the entire center regularly.  All bowling balls and shoes are thoroughly sanitized and will be re-sanitized after each use. Sanitization stations are available for use by all guests throughout the facility.  We will socially distance bowling groups by maintaining one lane separation between parties.  Masks will be required for anyone entering the building, in common areas and in restrooms. Masks may be removed once your group is on your assigned lane.  Within the arcade, all high contact areas will be sanitized following a strict schedule and social distancing guidelines will remain in effect in this area. 

All staff will be temperature checked prior to beginning their shifts, will wear face masks, and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

We welcome you back to our family entertainment center and hope that you enjoy your time here!  

Important Update

We want to be the safest place to work, have fun and eat. We have diligently worked to update our service model and trained our team members to provide a fun and safe environment to all who walk through our doors. We value your health and safety, and we are committed to this promise, but we will also need your help to achieve it.
