King Pins bowling and gaming has opened at Trafford Palazzo with a flagship site featuring gaming, karaoke, food concessions and more.

The new entertainment centre has arrived with a flagship site and food partners Manchester pizza pros PLY and Asian street food favourite Little Bao Boy.

The 26,000 sq ft venue offers 15 lanes of Ten Pin bowling, 4 lands of Duck Pin bowling (a shorter-laned, faster game of bowling), shuffleboard, ice free curling, air hockey, a batting cage, karaoke booths and arcade games alongside food from PLY and Little Bao Boy as well as a full-service bar and desert kiosk.

King Pins’ own dessert kiosk ‘Royal Treats’ serves a huge selection of sweet snacks, from donuts and soft serve ice cream, to endless Pick ‘N’ Mix.  A new bar at the venue hosts 20 different beers including from local Salford brewery, Seven Bro7hers, alongside a large variety of cocktails, alcohol-free options and homemade slushies.

James Travis, Brand Manager of King Pins, said: “We’re excited to open the doors and welcome people into King Pins at Trafford Palazzo. The venue has been in the works for a while, and we can’t wait to showcase everything we have on offer, from Ten Pin Bowling and arcade games, to the top-tier food vendors and bar. We don’t call it the Crown Jewels of bowling for nothing.”

The food concessions will be run by PLY who offer a range of non-traditional pizzas and homemade dough using ethically grown UK-produced wild farmed flour; and Little Bao Boy who have built a reputation for independent and mobile street food including home made bao buns and Asian food with a western, contemporary twist.

King Pins opened on Monday 17 July 2023 at Trafford Palazzo near to Legoland Discovery Centre, Sea Life and the upcoming Nerf Experience.

Pricing for Ten Pin Bowling starts from £8 per adult and £6 per child (15 or under), with Duck Pin Bowling starting from £6 per adult and £4 per child. Karaoke, the batting cage and ice free curling start from £16 and shuffleboard from £8 per 30 minutes.
