Thomas Zmich, Centre Manager at Hollywood Bowl Milton Keynes, said: “We’ve been counting down the days until we can reopen to bring back bowling to families in Milton Keynes. Our unique leisure offerings has been sorely missed as a way to unwind and have fun, so we’re thrilled to be reopening for guests to enjoy and make memories together once again.”

'Party packages' aplenty are being promised for returning guests. The amusement area and American Diner on the site will also be welcoming customers from May 17.

Hollywood Bowl Milton Keynes has adopted a ‘Have Fun, Play Safe’ policy to ensure the centre’s safety measures are in line with all Government guidelines. This includes the installation of ane seating dividers and more distinctively designed balls which will also increase safety.

Other measures include cleaning all balls, touch screens and seating after each customer group, appropriate spacing between amusement machines and dining seating, with social distancing measures and signage throughout each venue. Guests can also wear their own shoes to bowl in.

Guests are encouraged to make bookings ahead of their visit via the Hollywood Bowl website here. Bookings will be limited to maximum group numbers in line with Government guidance.
