Howell Lanes Bowling Alley a Bowling Night NoCC Build by SimDoughnut
This is a fairly accurate recreation of my childhood bowling alley, Howell Lanes in Howell, NJ. It’s where I had birthday parties as a kid, and later bowled in a league as an adult before moving out West to Minnesota. Howell Lanes is also where my childhood friend Parker Bohn III learned to bowl, and eventually went on to become a highly ranked professional bowler on the PBA tour.
Howell Lanes, wasn’t a very swanky Bowling alley, in fact looking back on it, it was a bit dodgy. That was okay though because we went there to bowl, not to be mesmerized by the aesthetics. Howell Lanes featured a small Cafe, a Bar, a Pro Shop, and a room where we could kids could play Pinball, and later video games. I’ve included all of these features in this build.
The build sits on a 40x30 lot, is set as a Bar, and I originally built it in Newcrest. You can find the Howell Lanes Bowling Alley in my SimDoughnut gallery while in game. This is a NoCC build, so just use the tags #bowling #howelllanes, or #bowlingnight to find it.
I hope you enjoy the build as much as I did creating it. It brought back a lot of fond childhood memories, as well as happy memories spent there with my own children.
Have Fun :)!
