Pacifica’s “Sea Bowl” Closing Down After 64 Years
Thanks to SF Gate for sharing the sad news that Pacifica’s Sea Bowl Entertainment Center and its 32 lanes of bowling will be closing down very soon.
This bowling alley in Pacifica first opened its doors in March of 1958 but is closing at the end of May after more than 60 years (64 years, to be exact).
According to the SF Gate, Sea Bowl was so popular in its opening days that the venue stayed open three nights in a row without closing. The current owners took over in 1996 hosting not only bowling leagues, but bumper bowling for kids, glow-in-the dark bowling plus carnivals in their parking lot. This old-school bowling alley has been a part of the community has been decades and will surely be missed.
But you still have a few more months to get your last rolls in. The official closing date is May 31, 2023.
You can rent a lane for $30-40/hour, or join them for “Astro Bowl” with glow-in-the-dark effects choreographed to your favorite music videos on Friday evenings with your crew for either $20 per hour, or $74.95 for a lane for two hours which includes shoe rental place a free large pizza and pitcher of soda.
Time to get rolling!
This sucks. I spent a lot of time at Sea Bowl in Pacifica as a kid, and still regularly attend with friends. Why have a bowling alley when you could just have more condos! pic.twitter.com/9LCDSamxkO
