    KC Bowl, previously named Ranch Bowl, has been around since before I was born! I grew up at this bowling alley and remember participating in leagues every Wednesday and Sunday. The arcade was always a great place to hang out and blow some money. The snack bar always had the best pickles and cosmic bowling on Friday and Saturday nights were always a hit!
