amf summer games

AMF’s free bowling for kids is back this summer; AMF Summer Games runs May 18 through September 7, and is valid Monday through Friday (open to 8pm) and Saturday and Sunday (open to 4pm). The free passes are for kids 15 and under, good for 3 games of bowling each day. Register online at

A Family Pass is also available for purchase for $39.95, and entitles 4 people (age 16 and older) access to 3 games of bowling each day.

Here’s the fine print about shoe rentals:
“Shoe rental is included with each purchase of a Kids Pass or Adult Pass. If your center is participating in the program that offers free kids’ passes and paid family passes, then shoes are not included.”

Huh? I interpret it to mean, as usual, you’re on your own for shoe rental.

    Participating Richmond AMF lanes:
    Shrader Lanes
    8037 Shrader Road

    Sunset Lanes
    6540 West Broad Street

    Hanover Lanes
    7317 Bell Creek Road
