Cool place, nice lanes, and plenty to do. It was $25/hour for a lane. We enjoyed our time and would return.
Stop in for bowling or some lottery, and perhaps you might be the next lucky customer to purchase a winning Club Keno ticket worth $5,000 like some unknown customer did on November 27 2019. Perhaps the bartender knows, hope the winner tipped good! More...
Fun lanes, they have other stuff besides just bowling.
J. Stephen Hooper
really treat you like a valued customer
If is fun for the whole family
Fun place to go on a rainy day. They have a small arcade and a few pool tables too.
Honestly this is a great bowling alley. I'm not much of a bowler, but it's cheap, the food is surprisingly great, and the drinks are surprisingly inexpensive! Great way to spend an hour or two
Had a wonderful time. Love the new look
Great place to bowl. Good food and nice spirits.
Had a great time!
Good food. Fun game room
Very cool place. The arcade games are a lot of fun along with the bowling!
Love this bowling alley great place to go lots of fun for the kids haven't had a bad experience yet
Nice atmosphere for family fun!
Foodie Alert!!! This isn't just any bowling alley, laser tag, arcade, escape room ...the food's truly a hidden gem. Really is. Was a real treat for me. Cuban Sandwich here is a tribute to Florida's oldest restaurant with very carefully curated ingredients and love in execution going so far as to have even the correct bread come from a bakery in Tampa. Jyes, they go that far. Was a sight for sore eyes, this sammy, for this Florida boy. Saw they do other things too, like filet sliders; who does that? I want some!!!Awesome. More...
Always a fun time at spare time! Fun for the whole fam damily:)
This was first time ever going to an escape room and it was an experience I won't forget. I will definitely be returning
Had a great time there. A great and a wide collection of arcade games along with the bowling alleys. They now have a air hockey table for 4 people (earlier it was for just 2). A lot of new multiplayer games have also been added which is really fun if you all want to play in groups. Going there on the weekdays is cheaper than on the weekends More...
Fun time! Staff was great for Escapology!
Great place but expensive on the weekends.
Taylor does an excellent job on volleyball nights!!!! Thank you!!!!
Played sand volleyball up there. Lots of fun! Our waitress Taylor was great. Best place to be on Wednesday night!

Bowling was a blast. The balls weren't broken down like some bowling alleys. The servers were great. We ran out of time 8 frames into our last game, they staff gave us an extra 5 minutes to complete it.
Nice bowling alley with good food. Prices are reasonable too.
A great place to bowl, play games or even try an escape room. Whatever you choose to do, the staff is friendly and courteous. 10/10 experience always.
Always a blast best price is wensdays half off play
Very nice/clean place to have fun
So fun! The best part is the laser room, where you have to try to avoid the lasers like they do in spy movies. Literally so much fun!
Nice bowling alley
So much to do! The arcade is pretty big for a bowling alley. My 3 year old son loves coming here. The food is also very good as well.
One of the best arcades around for a reasonable price... bowling lanes are also really nice
Love using the Capital Room.
Expensive but great experience
Had a lot of fun. Played in the arcade, and went glo bowling. A little pricey and way too warm, but still a lot of fun.
Im from out of state, I was just there visiting family, we took up a huge section of the alley, spent lots of money, bowling and eating. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the servers were just as good and to top it off we got free socks for the night lol, overall my experience was great! More...
Wow, a volleyball court in the parking lot - what a time to be alive!
The lazer maze was a bust, upset that lazer tag was gone. But the cheap games made it worth it!
Had so much fun with my friends for my birthday! We did the Budapest and Under Pressure. Really great details in the rooms and Connie our Game Master was great with clues when we asked for them. Gave just enough for us to get it, but not make it easy. Would definitely recommend. More...
Kinda pricey but it was Saturday night ...
Tammy took great care of me and my 2 girls today. She is fantastic. This is a great place to bring your family.
Tammy was our server for a ladies bowling/lunch gathering. Great service on a very busy day. THANKS!
My friend and I get together on Tuesdays for ladies bowling and have a great time
Best escape room I have done, still looking for ultimate difficulty but this one was hard enough to be fun
My first time here i came with family and we all loved it ..
It was an awesome expirience.... yes even adults have fun here.
I loved both the arcade and the bowling! Even if I'm no good at it :(
Issues with shoes not sliding on floor during bowling approach.
I went here with one of my best friends and his girlfriend at the time. We had a blast, it was a great experience and was nice to spend time with them. Since then they have gotten married, and I will always remember us having fun here. I would highly recommend to anyone. More...
The last time I was at spare time was are about 15 years ago. It is cents and proved a greatly and seems like a cool spot to hang out at.
The bar is great and the day bar tender is amazing make sure you ask for Jody
Something for everyone.
Fun kids enjoy their bday parties there
Had an awesome time
Always a good time
Great place to have fun with family and friends. Bowling and video games.
Very good, great garlic butter and bread.clean good atmosphere
So much fun to be had here!
Great place to go with friends. Cheap prices on some of their beer.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of bowling balls to choose from and the rental shoes are in great shape. Never had an issue with the lane, great place, would recommend.
Was good time. Drinks where good. Big issue is lack of bathrooms.

Great bowling alley
This is a great bowling alley and more for the family. The facility is very clean, the lanes and balls well kept, and the technology very up-to-date. It's great to see so many families with young kids enjoy the lanes too. They offer light balls, ball ramps, and bumpers, if need be. They offer a great program in the summer where the kids-bowl free: be sure to sign up! Bowling can be a bit pricey but I imagine the cost of overhead to keep up such a nice facility is high.In addition to bowling, Spare Time offers a full arcade (a hit with adults and kids) bumper cars, sand volleyball courts and a restaurant. I have never ordered from the restaurant but the servers are lovely people. They come to the lanes to see if bowlers would like anything! The owner/manager of Spare Time lacks some customer service friendliness but he does his job well of managing lanes and any problems that might occur within the facility. More...
Went for a party from a Church, big group.Great time, great food, excellent attention, outstanding service from Amber!
Great family fun 1/2 off games on Wednesdays
You'll have a good time
Pastor Luis F Padilla
Had a great time with friends making a fool of myself!..The place was awesome, and the employees great!..Ordered a mixed platter of appetizers and it was pretty good..
What a gorgeous remodel! I can't wait to go back and try the virtual reality video game. I had no idea this state of the art facility was right next to frandoor!
Staff was great
Went to Escapology here. The proximity to the arcade is helpful for our babysitter!
Waiters we friendly, atmosphere is nice. The only downside is that the menu pricing is a little misleading and expensive, but it's a bar do that can I say?
Loved their escape room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Clean facility, and we ordered food for our group. They were ok. Nothing outstanding at the same time not disappointing either. Kids enjoyed their arcade and bowling arena as well. Will visit again.... More...
Had a great time with family here definitely recommend it for a fun time for adults and kids
Fun like a kid again
Excellent family entertainment in Lansing. A must to stop and have FUN
Really fun, and the volleyball courts look great recently
Great time. Something for everyone
Fun and drinks!
My kids had a blast and loved the bumper cars. The prices were reasonable and the foot was good. Tables and game area were clean the service was great.
Slept through it all
This place is fun but a little overpriced
Place fills up fast sometimes because of college kids but not if you get there earlier. Theres also a nice bar area and arcade.
Really fun place for the whole family.. No really. Arcade, bar, volleyball court when weather permits, escape room, bumper cars. .. Oh and bowling. Nice people local fun. Way better than just a town bowling alley...its a nice mating place.. Clean nice people.. Go once a week! More...
Went bowling with some friends. It was okay. Same as any other bowling ally I’ve been too. What was super cool, was the 4 player air hockey table! Loved it!
Wow! This place has a lot to offer! Not just bowling, but an arcade full of games. There's also an escapeology here as well. Lots to do! With food and drinks as well. More...
Nice, clean, and fairly new. Lots to do there
Huska The prince
Great place to chill out bowling never gets old. It is actually fun always
Fun for the kids. I loved playing the Arcade games with them!
Always a fun time ! From bowling to games to food and the new escape rooms are a bonus . Fun family environment
A little high priced.
OCD Lawn Care
Awesome service. Great place for family events.
Kids birthday or Just fun its the spot
Fun bowling, great arcade and bumper cars
Nathan Hall - Gadgets & Greatness
It was half off night and a had a blast! The arcade got an upgrade singer the last time I was there! The two player games made it fun for my daughter and me! And of course, the bowling was a great time! Great food and friendly staff. AND the shoes did NOT smell odoriferous! Trust me...that's huge! More...
Had a good time with the family
Excellent pizza and very friendly staff.
Cosmic bowling is the best!
I was Spare Time Saturday and was help by a guy Amir he was awesome he help us gave us a great deal and made us laugh a little. ME AND MY FAMILY WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK. More...
Good on Sunday
The front counter lady was so nice and helpful, Katina was her name. Thank you for being so helpful and friendly. Well go back again soon.
Cool arcade, good selection of food, nice lanes.
Great fun! Great food! Great service!
Love bowling here ,great place ,service is excellent,good foods.
Nice establishment and fun times were had
A lot of activity going on. Nice place.
Nate is awesome
Excellent lanes, great specials, and the service is always immaculate.
We had fun would go again. You should too.Idk how the food was or I would have given it 5. But bowling was a blast.
Good lanes. Looking forward to trying escape rooms soon!
Was a blast
Spare Time has a ton of activities for kids. The bowling is always a great time and my kiddos love the arcade games. On the weekends I've noticed that I can actually get a lane here on a Friday or Saturday night when it's impossible at other bowling alleys. It seems like they've really made this place pretty nice over the past few years with a lot of activities. More...
I love this place!!
I had a great time bowling with friends. Easy parking, great staff, excellent food.
Call ahead on Sundays! Busy place. Had a great time and not expensive
What a great evening out with the family Robert really helped make an evening to remember. Two thumbed way up.
armando castillo castro
Good beer and reasonably priced, and you can find good deals on bowling
Lot if things to do here, both for adults and kids. Lots of fun for everyone!
Robert R. Ray
Great servers in the bar area.
Awesome place with lots of stuff to do.
Great service in the restaurant and fun time in the escape room!
Booted from lane after 1 hr and 20mins of bowling. Front desk asked me to talk to another customer that was supposed to take over my lane about the problem. Never was explained any of the rules of the bowling alley before bowling and got stuck with a 64 oz pitcher of beer without being able to bowl. Punk 18 year old should be fired.Quick response , worked everything out. The employee redeemed himself and management and staff were very professional handling the situation. More...
Fun place, just wish workers would tell parents to be courteous when they have to place them next to adults bowling. Grrr kids taking our ball and constantly coming into our lane and running round like animals.
Fun for the whole family
Great place to hang out and have fun with the family.
One of two best bowling alleys in Lansing. This one is modern and has summer volleyball leagues. .
Beer, fried chicken and BOWL
It was an excellent experience. Me and my family enjoyed our time a lot there . People are very respectful. I still remember the moment when my daughter was holding the steering wheel of a car video game and she was pretending that she was playing. Then, one person, probably the manger, came and paid for that game to let my little daughter play, he then left quickly .That actually was amazing and I could not express how much thankful I was because of that huge amount of kindness and feelings to others he showed. It is rare to find such sense these days. We enjoyed the bowling the most. I don't hesitate to go back again. There are a lot of games for all ages.I am sure that you will have a lot of fun when you go there with your family.I very much recommend it. More...
Fun fun fun
Jose J Flores
Great place for staff parties and volleyball!!!
Facility a little dated but we had fun. Food nothing special but not bad. Good service.
Nice place and had so much fun with the whole family
Nice place for the family or a date night. Went with my family for New Years. Bowled, ordered appetizers and drinks while bowling. Played at the arcade as well. No real complaints. More...
The kids have a blast!
Fun, though staff could be a bit more friendly...
Lots of options for things to do and open very late. Would have been 5 stars but pricing for the connected bar is a little high. City limits is much more reasonably priced. More...
It was fun, alot to do..
Bray the boss King
The games are not rigged they are awsome
Coolio my dood
We have been to Spare Time several times and got a great time each visit. We also spent New Year's Eve there this year and we had a blast. They have just added the Escapology rooms. We didnt have time to do that but it is on the list for our next visit. The arcade has nice options for all ages. We enjoyed our bowling games which were very affordable and loved having a server come to the table. We also enjoyed the trivia. It is just good family fun! More...
Lots of games to play
Spare Time is a really fun place to visit. Undoubtedly the best bowling venue in Lansing. They also have an arcade, escape room, and bar. We had the buffalo chicken pizza, which was very good. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Also, the arcade games are in good condition, practically new. Finally, they have something that I've never seen: when you are logging in the names of who is bowling you can select which players will use gutter guards. The gutter guards come out automatically for those players and then retract when the player is done. Great solution for groups with kids. I think I may have my birthday party here this year! Fun times. Highly recommend. More...
I liked it there; we had fun playing and eating.
Can get very busy on the weekend, sometimes has weights, but a lot of entertainment to pass time.
Nice, clean, smoke-free bowling alley.
Half off games on Wednesday. Great staff. Clean bathroom. The update worked out great. Looking for something new? Check them out, they have something going on every night.
Good bowling and if you have kids a good game area
My husband & I wanted to get a lane for a half hour on the weekend, and the desk people were pretty quick about ringing our time up for the more private lanes. Worth the extra money to get the time we needed. More...
Fun family entertainment.
New breakout room is AWESOME!
Awesome! It is such a cool place!
Our group plays board games in the bar Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Great service.
Kids had fun
Great place to bowl and have some arcade fun. Food is really bad though so if you just want to have a bite this is not the place to go. Great music and great ambiance. Would recommend. More...
Nice place for fun bowling. Came from Grand Rapids the day after Thanksgiving to meet family. Excellent process on bowing. Good drinks & food.
It's bowling with good service
Great family environment. Very clean and nice. Decent food.
Went with my Granddaughters to the game areas, they had lots of fun! Prizes made them happy!! The food is delicious, hope you go and find out for yourselves, there are games for teens and grownups that are fun too!
Great food, bowling is awsome wife and kids had a great time we will DEFINITELY be coming back
Fun but service is a little slow.
Very fun place for the family or a group of friends. Arcade is good and their card system is both efficient and reasonably priced. They have an escape room and bumper cars as well. More...
I had a great experience when I was a customer there. They had great deals on drinks the bowling was fun and I love that they have a arcade area and dining experience as well. Two thumbs up!
Great lanes and great staff!
Great food. They are very friendly. I hear there is live music sometimes. I haven't made it for that yet. I'm usually here for lunch.
Good with lots to do
Nice, enjoyed myself, bowling needs to be expanded or you will get stuck in the arcade and drop a bunch of loot
Fun place to go on a rainy day.
An excellent selection of beers. No pinball machines at all though.
Great food and manager. Manager was working as the bartender and performed flawlessly. I had one of thier burgers and onion rings. Both cook just right. Nice selection of beer on tap. More...
Good service, clean place, for a Saturday afternoon right after a home MSU game, we were able to bowl right away, there wasn't a wait. Also a good menu and beer options.
Ooooooh that's the place to be....it's very joyful food game beers and more all mix together....families and friends come and have fun...
I always lose but I always have fun
Absolutely love this place, great food and games.
Always a great time
Lots of arcade style games and the bowling lanes are in great shape. Also the beer towers are awesome!
Fun place to have drinks, bowl and watch a game
They do a nice job, the owner appears to be very "hands on". Open bowling is quite expensive (there are cheaper deals around town), and I glanced through their menu as well. Food sounded great but was a little on the pricey side. We waited and ate somewhere else on the way home. More...
Clean facility, good food. A great place to have a fun time! Definitely would recommend!
Awesome place with a great arcade. We played a variety of games, including VR and lazer, and the prizes were fun.
Our server Tony was the absolute best, he was so nice, he treat us with the upmost respect and anything we needed, he got! Thanks Tony, you rock mate.
Can get expensive
Had a very good time at spare time with my friends and family it was very cheap and fit the budget
Had a great time
Great place to have a lot of fun
Good beer burgers were thin and not tasty
Katreva N. Bisbee
Great place for bowling. Prices are reasonable
The arcade is nice, but a little bit small. We were excited to bowl but we're told we couldn't because they had a league coming in that had reserved every lane. A bit annoying, but understandable
You can count on Spare Time for a fun family night out. The only thing holding me back from giving 5 stars is that in general the cost for everything from games and bowling to food and drinks is just a bit over priced. With that said, my family always enjoy the occasional visit to Spare Time for bowling and the best boneless hot wings around or a family dinner and games night. More...
Just doing this so there are more than 666 reviews :) o7
kids liked it
Had a wonderful time, they offer bowlimg per player or by the hour for larger groups, had an area with arcade games n tickets to win prizes, would be a very cool place for a kids party
Kids just love going here. All the arcade games and bowling. Cant say we have ever had any problems here. Fun and great place for the family. Will not be disappointed.
A fun date night idea. Arcade prices went up but they have lots of special price nights
Quiz bowl was awesome!
Fun for a group!
I like the bowling alley there they always have open bowling. The restaurant inside the bowling alley has good food and the people are polite.
More than a bowling alley... Fun for everyone.
Mike the Owner and staff is awesome. He has the right idea and has more to come. Definitely need entertainment activities and this place has got it!
Its our favorite place as it has got bowling, laser gun and a lot of other fun stuff. Food and drinks make it complete hang out place!
Weekly date spot
Good bowling, a decent arcade and a good bar.
I took my 4 year old son here for kids bowl free. We had a lot of fun. We used a shoe card and as such didn't have to pay anything for two games each. One thing here is they try to sell drinks and food at your take which can be costly. They have better than average bowling alley food. More...
Always fun. This time though it was under construction 5 stars when it's all done.
Great service and prices are all roght considering it was Saturday
Great! Bowing spot and all around fun!
It was alright. A bit pricey though
Super fun place. Very clean. Nice big arcade with a really fun VR game.
Laser tag was
We play beach volleyball here in the summer and it's a great time!
The bumpers move up and down on their own!
Very fun place to go
Fun place, the owner is very active in updating equipment and activities. Good food, cold beer smiles and strike friendly lanes!Frandor is a great location.
Fun place to bowl and play laser tag.
Enjoyed the Capital room experience
Location has games bowling and a bar + food. Who knew beer and bowling goes well together.
I can't wait to come back here and go bowling. Cosmic bowling is so fun there. There's so many games to play and for a night out with the kids or adults it's a good time.
Good entertainment place. Nice place for kids.
If you like bowling,..
Great service at the bar!
The customer service is kimd of poor and they never seem to be prepared for a large crowed. But toger then that everything was great had lots of fun
Great night out place for the family
So much fun for the whole family
Great fun. Love the bowling. Great craft beer selection. Laser tag is fun but twice as expensive as it should be. Half the price and we'd play multiple rounds. Keep it as is, probably won't play again. More...
This is a must frequent restaurant!! The food, wait staff, chef and ambiance are all excellent!!!
Sawyer Van Antwerp
Great service and prices makes it so much fun
Great place for family fun!
Fun place to take the kids or bowl with some buddies
Packed and busy as all hell but all of their employees were on top of it the entire way. [We] need more places like this. Old school mixed with new school!
Fun and modern
Jimmie Stanley Jr
The attractions are super cool and fun. Definitely coming back!
Expensive for bowling but had fun
Fun place, very busy so plan accordingly.
fun bowling and acrade joint. Great for family events and for a date.
Great prices, highly recommend for those who just wanna have fun. Great staff as well not to mention the prices.
A great venue for food, fun, and entertainment. Good for families and adults. Bowling, video gaming, volleyball, bar and restaurant.
Lots of fun for the fam!
Good lanes. Got their $10 all u can bowl special, which includes shoes. Food is what you'd expect from bowling alley, but service was slow. 4 stars because you can't beat $10 bowling. More...
Good environment and kid friendly with laser tag, bumper cars, VR gaming, and private bowling area, banquet area, and 23 lanes open to the public.
This place is so much fun, even for adults. The bumper cars are a blast and the food is great. I tried the quesadilla and was very happy with it. Great drinks !
fun place to be
The place is well staffed and the staff is friendly. Food was delicious. Parking is limited. The laser tag was fun as was the bumper cars. The bumper cars were a bit pricey for how short the ride is. More...
Fun place for laser tag!
