Superior Bowl upgrades lanes


Bryan Felters, Jayhawk Bowling Supply, Lawrence, Kan., applies the final coat of acrylic sealant to the approaches at Superior Bowl Thursday. The bowing alley installed synthetic lane covers and refinished the approaches to the alleys.

The original wood surfaced lanes were installed when Superior Bowl opened in 1958. They were replaced in the early 80s. Since then, they have become uneven, worn down which generally made for an interesting bowling experience. Though they were refinished a few years ago, the time had come for an upgrade.

A crew from Jayhawk Bowling Supply, Lawrence, Kan., installed the new synthetic lanes at the establishment last week. They installed overlays after sanding down the surface. of the alleys. A bowler who has experienced the new surfaces reports a substantial improvement in performance. The approaches to the lanes were also refinished. The wood was sanded and then an acrylic finish was applied. Bryan Felters, of Jayhawk, said this was the final time the approaches could be refinished. Any further work in the future will require replacing the area.

The crew worked during the day to minimize the impact on league bowling.

Jay Nielson, manager of Superior Bowl, advised the facility is a popular destination with the young set on weekends. Disco lights and contemporary music provide a contemporary experience. For the more traditional minded, regular bowling is also available.

The food and beverage selections have expanded under Nielson's's direction. The installation of three commercial grade air fryers has allowed Superior Bowl to offer a wide variety of food. Hamburgers, fries and pizzas are some of the dishes available. Wings are a popular offering. They also offer a large selection of finger foods and side dishes. In addition to soft drinks, there is beer and a full liquor menu available. Four big-screen televisions are situated where viewers are able to watch sporting events.

The six-lane bowling center has had new machines installed as well. Large graphics dominate the wall above the pin area adding an updated look.

Superior Bowl has been a mainstay of the community since 1958, and under the ownership of Nate Saathoff and Phil Simonsen, looks to be set for a bright future.
