Prairie Lanes: Providing Fun Times For Almost Fifty Years

By Elisha Neubauer

Prairie Lanes has been in operation for over 44 years in the small town of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. While having changed hands in previous years, the facility has stuck with its original concept: offering a space which is both fun and safe for kids and adults alike.

More than just a few lanes, Prairie Lanes has become a staple in the Sun Prairie community. It is a place to have a blast with friends or enjoy a one-stop date night. Parents can enjoy a nice dinner while their kids get to stretch their legs, run around, and play games or bowl. It is a venue for birthday parties or business gatherings. It is so much more than just a bowling lane.

The atmosphere is welcoming, but fun and exciting at the same time. It is a family-friendly environment, but certainly not for family's only. Everyone enjoys a few rounds at Prairie Lanes.

"We try and make people feel welcome and comfortable while they are here, Ross, the proprietor, said. "At the end of the day that is our job, to ensure that people are enjoying themselves and leave happy. That is what being in the entertainment business is all about."

The facility knows a thing or two about being in the entertainment industry. Now in its third-generation of a family ownership, the current owners have grown up understanding just what guests want from the lanes. They strive to offer only the latest technology and trends.

"People expect the latest in technology these days," Ross said. "It's a staple in everyone's lives and the bowling business is no exception."

In addition to keeping up with the latest in the industry, the facility offers great dining choices for those feeling a little peckish. Most known for their Friday Fish Fry, the kitchen offers a one piece, two piece, and all you can eat deep fried cod dinner that includes a choice of potato, rolls, or soup and salad bar.

"We also offer a catch of the day and a baked cod option as well," Ross said. "My personal favorite though, would be our burgers."

The Rodeo burger is perhaps the number one selling option on the menu, topped with homemade onion rings, bacon, and spicy whiskey barbecue sauce.

Also available at Prairie Lanes is a pro shop, outdoor volleyball court, a tiki bar, sports bar, and rental options for parties.
