Bowling is so much more than pins and lanes. Buffalo Bowl also brings people together for food and fun.

Located inside the Aurora Community Activity Center, the Bowling Center is an entertainment complex featuring eight (8) lanes, bowling leagues, tournaments, as well as surprisingly diverse diversions.

Authorized patrons and FMWR Pass Holders of all ages can enjoy bowling as bumpers are available for younger players.

You’ll also find food and drinks at Fahrenheit Bar & Grille, to fuel another frame or two if you’re up for bowling, or power your meeting or party if you’re with a group. 

Bowling is one of the only activities you’ll find where all your Family and friends can participate, no matter your age or ability. Come hang out at Buffalo Bowl!
