Castle Lanes - Racine, Wisconsin
Picture someone turned the popular bar game Big Buck Hunter into reality, and then put a bowling alley in the game. Now, you’ve got an idea of what the interior looks like at the Castle Lanes in Racine, Wisconsin. The exterior still retains a castle façade, which makes it look like a perfect place for a kid’s birthday party, but the interior is more Vegas than Spongebob.
The owner, Phil Ontko, says the inspiration for the woodsy themed bowling alley comes from the patrons: many of them fish and hunt, so he figured he’d make it something familiar. The walls are adorned with various animal heads, and stuffed birds hang above the lanes. Phil has taken the business plan of running a bowling alley and turned it upside down, relying mostly on league bowling to fill the lanes every day.
