In pictures: A look inside T-Birds’ newly transformed bowling alley

Posted by Adam in Recreation, 11/8, 6:20 PM

Throughout much of 2019, T-Birds Food Fun Games has been in the midst of a transformation of essentially all corners of its “under one roof” establishment on Currie Boulevard at Brandon’s South end. 

In June, as part of an initial phase of renovations space formerly used for Huggy’s Restaurant was re-launched as an arcade/high-end redemption video gaming system. Co-inciding with those updates was the establishment of an upstairs dining are going by the monicker T-Birds Grill and Bar. 

Now this week the establishment once known as Thunderbird Bowl has seen completion of major updates to its bowling area completed including new seating, lighting, flooring and most recently screens and scoring platform/bowling entertainment system. On top of modernizing T-Birds as a bowling alley, the new system also brings many new interactive elements to the fun side of bowling including social media connectivity, messaging between alleys and various games-within-the-game. The folks with T-Birds were nice enough to give me a tour, some of the better pictures from which are included in a gallery below.

Some smaller finishing touches are to come in the bowling area, to later be followed in T-Birds’ transformation by the inclusion of a handful of new games on its arcade side. Beyond that, further down the line the indoor play structure is to be replaced by a to-be-announced attraction.

... and the lights go out!

The new lighting makes for a great atmosphere for a game of glow bowling
