Ace of Lanes Birthday Party

Ethan chose to have his birthday party at Ace of Lanes in Bishop’s Stortford. I mentioned it in my half term guide previously but I felt it deserved a full detailed post.

The party cost me £13.95 per child with a 50% deposit paid at the time of booking. The booking as a whole included the following:

  • An hours bowling on a VIP lane with preset names and barriers if requested
  • Use of the party room (with balloons, speaker system and decorated table)
  • A party host which helps the children with bowling and allows the parents to relax a bit
  • Unlimited squash and water on the lane and in the party room (It was blackcurrant or orange squash)
  • Choice of a meal for each child (Beef Burger / Cheese Burger / Posh Puppy in Bun (hotdog) they are all served with fries on the side or they have Mac & Cheese / Margherita Pizza / Pepperoni Pizza that doesn’t come with chips and it is extra and would need to be requested at time of booking the food.

It was absolutely brilliant and stress free to be able to just arrive with minimal items. We took a birthday cake as I made it myself but if you require it you can enquire about it when you book originally. I also took party bags that I did myself but once again I think this can be arranged through them. It made such a change for me to arrive to a party stress free and without having to worry about the food etc and I have to say that Louise made it so relaxed and easy.

Ace of Lanes do also offer a teenager party package and an adult package which both vary slightly. I’ll explain them below and the options they come with and the best way to book them is over the phone.


The teenager party package is £15.95 per person and includes:

  • An hours bowling on a VIP lane with preset names and barriers if requested
  • Use of the party room (with balloons, speaker system and decorated table)
  • A party host which helps make sure they are happy and behaving themselves. It allows a bit more freedom however an adult must be present during the duration.
  • It comes with a choice of a fizzy drink and an adult’s party meal. The choices are sent over to you when booking or you can enquire via the website.

The adult party package is £21.95 per person and it includes:

  • An hours bowling on a VIP lane with preset names
  • A house drink (this varies so it’s worth asking which ones are available)
  • Choice of adult party meal or sharing platters which can be eaten at the lanes or other arrangements can be made.
  • It is possible to add an extra game of bowling on top of your bill on the day depending on availability. 

Both require a 50% deposit when booking to prevent cancellations, this can be done in the bowling alley or over the phone via bank card.

Our Final View On The Package

The team made sure we had everything we needed and didn’t leave us feeling a nuisance or a burden with any requests. We left feeling like we had spent his party relaxed and it was definitely worth the money.

Ethan loved it and has already asked to go back with us another day. It reminded me of my parties as a child in that bowling alley. It is 100% a place you can make lots of happy memories.

All the children left with a kids bowl free voucher too which was a bonus for their party bags!
