According to Brijesh Kumar Choubey, a lead analyst for outdoor gear research at Technavio, “The rising popularity in the hospitality industry will drive the demand for bowling equipment. In popular tourist places such as Las Vegas, Orlando, and New York, the inclusion of bowling alleys in resorts has become popular.”
Many resorts widely recognize the benefit of having in-house bowling alleys. Bowling is a sport that is enjoyed by families, adults, and kids of all ages. Thus, the presence of in-house bowling alleys allows guests to engage in recreational and fun activities during their stay at the resorts. Pioneering bowling chains like Bowlmor Lanes, Lucky Strike, and Splitsville are partnering with luxury resorts to offer customers the same experience as that of playing in a professional bowling center.
Cosmic or extreme bowling
A concept that is trending in the bowling industry is glow in the dark bowling. It is popularly being marketed as cosmic or extreme bowling. During cosmic or extreme bowling, the bowling alley is converted into a virtual disco, with throbbing music, computer-programmed lighting effects, fog machines, balls, pins, and lanes, which glow in the dark using ultra violet lighting. The atmosphere is more of a disco night setting and has attracted the teens and young adults.
Focus shifting toward children
To make bowling accessible to children, the concept of mini bowling has been introduced. Mini bowling can also be enjoyed by adults while accompanying their children. Various players in the market such as Switch are producing mini bowling facilities and equipment. Celebrating birthdays at bowling centers with friends and family is a growing trend among children, and this trend has been attracting several children to bowling centers.
