Meridian Lanes upgrades building, bowling experience

With increased competition around the central part of the Treasure Valley, bowling stalwart Meridian Lanes shut down for more than a week to upgrade.

The ten-day closure is allowing crews to put in a new scoring system – replacing the old program first installed in 1995.

The new SYNC system from vendor Brunswick uses touchpad screens to tie into social media, and adds features like Angry Birds Bowling and photo uploading 

“Everything was designed to make the customer experience that much better.” new Meridian Lanes owner Andy Propst said.  “If you’re hungry and want some nachos, you used to have to leave the bowling area to go to the snack bar. Now you just press a button and we’ll come to you.”

Crews also gave the building a fresh coat of paint, updated flooring and renovated snackbar.

The alley opens back up August 1st.

The 32-lane alley has been open for more than 59 years. It has faced stepped up competition in recent years from 42 lanes at Big Al’s at the Village at Meridian and 24 lanes at Pinz
