The centerpiece of High Tides and Good Vibes is a 16-lane bowling alley featuring cutting-edge lanes with a 10-foot-high HD LED video board running the entire width of the lanes.

After working up an appetite on the lanes, guests can refuel at the venue’s restaurant serving everything from fresh seafood and juicy burgers to refreshing cocktails and decadent homemade cookies.

The arcade at High Tides and Good Vibes offers an array of cutting-edge games, from classic arcade favorites to the latest virtual reality experiences. Other attractions will include a 4,000-square-foot, two-story laser tag arena, a ropes course and a three-level indoor interactive play tower for the younger kids.
