● Official Bowling Lanes – For Home Or For Business ●
With years of experience and following a quest for innovation, Imply has crafted a spectacular new bowling line-up: Official Bowling Lanes.
Alert! Imply has introduced the “Evolution Bowling Show” upgrade for both Official & Custom Bowling Lanes. Scroll further down to read all about this awesome new way to generate more revenue for your system!
Hitting a new level of quality and features, the Official Bowling Lanes takes a classic that everyone knows and loves and updates it with cutting edge technology to give bowlers what they want. This begins with making the lanes from 100% solid phenolic laminates, a material that is designed to hold up under high-traffic abuse (as long as proper care and maintenance are used of course). All lanes are treated with special inks and pigments so that they shine under black lights.
Each Official Bowling Lane also saves on space by using a completely redesigned ball return system. Instead of taking up space between each lane, the return is placed beneath the lanes. This means that in a typical bowling lane setting with 10 lanes, you could fit 11 Official Bowling lanes!
Then, Imply developed a completely new terminal system which presents a user-friendly touchscreen interface for clients to use and enjoy. The terminal and game interface system provides a completely new skin to Imply’s bowling lanes, featuring selectable player avatars, background themes for each player to select & use, on-screen keyboard for entering in names, player options (including score handicap, bumpers and Foul Line settings); scoring sorted by Men/Women/Children, a lane-to-lane instant messaging system, virtual waiter, team mode and support for four different languages! Scoreboards build onto the terminals by featuring easy-to-read scoring, themes and your avatar. Each lane includes a 55″ HD screen.
Top that off with the ability to connect to the game options using your smartphone and smartphone charging ports built right into the furniture to keep your customers engaged (Note: This is an option with an additional cost).
Watch the Official Bowling Lanes (previously known as Green Bowling) in action from IAAPA 2017. Available in 4K UHD resolution!
The pins themselves are kept in place using Imply’s no-mess string-connected pinsetters. Imply has added synched, full color spectrum LED lighting above each pin, in the terminals and along the lanes to create a mesmerizing light show. Customize the light-show to cater to your venue or for a special event.
Control it all using Imply’s proprietary Bowlingnet operating system. Allowing up to twelve (12) people to play per lane, configure your lanes from one central point to fit with your business needs. This includes the ability to register customer data to reach out to them for future marketing promotions, lane options, pricing and other settings. You can even set specific lanes to a “Superfast” mode (5 frames, 1 shot per frame) to help get more clients through during busy hours.
● What Is Included With An Official Bowling Lane Purchase? ●
Great question! Official Bowling Lanes are very competitive from both a quality and price perspective. They are UL certified and are also backed by 13+ years of experience from the manufacturer and 25+ years of experience on our end. Imply has installed bowling lanes all over the world, including at the Primetime Amusements’ X-Treme Action Park facility in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Please note that with each bowling purchase, a quote needs to be obtained based on the model, number of lanes and the location. We can also provide floor plan services using our professional architect as needed. Once purchased, lanes are built-to-order. We handle ALL of the logistics so that you can purchase worry free. Please give us a call if you have any questions or concerns about this process – we want your bowling center to be a huge success and will help make the process as stress free as possible!

● New For 2021 – Evolution Bowling Show ●
While the Official Bowling Lane itself brings the classic bowling idea into the modern age, Evolution Bowling Show takes that a step further thanks to Mixed Reality (MXR) technology! There is no better way to improve your revenues and bring customers back to play than this – but do note, that this is an option. It can be added to either a new or existing Green Bowling or Official Bowling Lane system for an additional cost.
Evolution Bowling Show (EBS) combines the familiar physical nature of the bowling game with the versatility and wonder of digital projection mapping. Each lane becomes an interactive canvas, where both text and graphics are displayed onto the lane to ‘gamify’ the experience beyond smashing pins. Already tested at some Imply bowling lanes in Brazil, the EBS has been shown to increase revenues for locations, doing so well that the entire cost of the system has itself paid for only after a few months!
EBS makes use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to further engage players by adapting the effects to what is happening in real-time. Players are presented with the ball speed on each throw, and all scoring is integrated into the existing Imply Bowling System.
It also comes with several digital playfields, where the combination of 3D visuals, projection mapping and AI all work together to create an unforgettable experience. As they say in Brazil, it’s a true “show de bola!”
● Official Bowling Lanes Features ●
The Official Lanes are produced in 97′ lane sizes. How many lanes you wish to install only depends on your available space and/or budget. The lane lengths are measured from the back of the pinsetters to the start of the player area – actual lanes themselves are about 63′ long. Check below for more details on the dimensions – can be installed into a home or business! Automatic bumpers & foul line sensors included. Also available in shorter Bowling Café models.
No more old tube TVs! Engage your customers better thanks to the stunning 55″ HD LCD screens. Users can pick an avatar to represent them on the screen, along with a theme. Animations show the current scores & pin setup, bolstered with fun animations. The screens are embedded inside of the masking panel, so there’s no need to build any extra overhead structure for the installation. Lanes also come with promotional panels that drop down between frames; customize these with your logo or that of a partner/vendor!
Inject some life into your bowling experience with Official Bowling Lane’s RGB LED lighting system. This creates a synced lighting effect on each pin, along the lanes and on the players terminal, for the ultimate light show! The effects are independent for each lane, generating a sensational show on each visit. All lanes also shine under black lights thanks to the injected special inks and neon pigments.
Each Official Lane comes with it’s own touchscreen command terminal. The lanes can be operated with tokens, coins, smartcards or on free play (for home or event use). These are installed at the beginning of each lane and are easy to operate. Just insert a credit, input player data and start playing! Up to 12 players can participate in the same game. Just like professional bowling, each user gets 10 frames with 2 shots per frame. The interface features player avatars, themes, virtual waiter, lane messaging, multiple languages and more. Compatible with coins, dollar bills or card swipe.
Bring your bowling center into the 21st Century with the Green Bowling/Official Bowling Lane App. This modern interface allows players to connect their own smartphone to the game. Players can use access the options menu, view current scores, send messages to the lanes, order from the food menu and share their score on social networks. All for free!
Each lane is made using highly resistant, 100% solid Phenolic Synthetic Laminates (the same found in full-size commercial lanes). This means that as long as proper cleaning & care procedures are followed, your lanes will still look like new several years down the road. The designs follow standards established by World Tenpin Bowling Association and USBC (United States Bowling Congress). Balls and Pins also follow internationally recognized official specifications.
Designed with simplicity and reliability in mind. It uses fewer parts and has lower operating costs compared with traditional pinsetters. It performs a quick replacement of the pins, so the players do not waste time between shots. All hardware is managed by intelligent computerized control. All electronics & lanes are UL & CE Certified.
A variety of bright & modern decorative themes are already available for each purchase. Ask your salesperson about the different options. We can also assist you in creating a custom theme that fits exactly with your location’s look & feel. This can also be done with the lounge area; sofas are designed with built-in USB charging station so that guests can charge their phones.
This included program offers maximum control over your operation, with customizable options for payments, game modes (Pro, OneShot or Fast), timeouts, CRM tools, registration of menu offers, a reservation platform, customized themes for events and special dates, and much more. You also will have access to the BowlingNet® Manager software giving you 24/7 access to bookkeeping audits & lane performance!
