Improvements in CyBowl

CyBowl & Billiards continues to improve!

When the Memorial Union re-opened in the summer of 2021, we were excited to get the ball rolling, opening the doors to an updated CyBowl & Billiards space as well.  And we have not stopped with the upgrades since!

We completely refloored the bowling lanes, fixing the bumps and divots so that each lane is now level and smooth for your optimal roll. After that, we added some better lights and updated consoles in the bowling area, which makes throwing some frames with your friends a blast. 

Our state of the art pinsetters were part of the upgrade too.  Only known Midwest alley with string setters, we updated to the finest in bowling alley operation to provide you with the best experience, right here on campus!

But if bowling isn't your thing, don't worry - we've got a spot for you too. The Billiards side of CyBowl saw some updates to provide an even better experience.  A fresh coat of paint, indoor turf space and Adirondack chairs brings the feel of the backyard inside.  Giant Jenga, Shuffleboard and Ping Pong games are available for free use, redefining the space as a relaxing destination for those looking for a casual hangout space or a little indoor tailgating spirit during the big game!

If you love billiards, we have you covered with five state-of-the-art tables.  Rent by the hour and play as many games as you want!  We provide all the equipment you could need, or bring your own! 

The rest of the space is divided into hang-out spaces with soft seating, bar tables, and even a few tables and a counter made out of the old bowling lanes!  Staff from the MU have had fun repurposing items that have been removed from other areas of the MU into Cybowl, including wood trim and lighting fixtures. One staff member went the extra mile and donated the wrought-iron rails from his renovated front porch to the project - you can now find them around the bar area!

From there we evolved the center to include The Underground Cafe, serving up chicken fingers, cheese curds, and other alley favorites for your taste buds while you enjoy the activities provided.  Offering a drink variety of delicious Pepsi products, as well as freshly made popcorn, satisfy your hunger while you roll your way to victory!  

Our latest source of additions came with redesigning our bowling walls and pillars to be painted black and prepared for a wall wrap that reacts to the blacklight.  We expect this to be added sometime in the coming months, and will pair nicely with our brand new neon sign, brightly declaring CyBowl & Billiards' place in the Memorial Union!  

You've really got to see it to believe it, so stop by CyBowl & Billiards the next time you're in the MU.  Bowl a game, rack up a new set, or simply relax in the comfort of our new and improved social destination.
