This Massive Family Fun Complex In Nebraska Is Insanely Fun
Remember the fun of going bowling when you were a kid? If you were lucky, the bowling alley also had an arcade where you could run off and play with friends and a snack bar where you could get some greasy fried snacks. The Mark in Elkhorn is kind of like that…but bigger. Much bigger.
The Mark is an enormous recreation complex where you can spend an entire day with the family and never hear the words "I'm bored."
There are 40 lanes for bowling and plenty of kid-friendly amenities like bumpers, lightweight balls, and kid-size shoes. There's open bowling every single day of the week, so you don't have to time your visit around league play.
You can reserve your lane online in advance to be sure there's space for you when you arrive. Show up during Cosmic Bowling to play under disco lights and thumping music.
If the kids don't like bowling, send them off to the arcade to play a few games.
There are lots to choose from, including classics like skee-ball and air hockey.
Games operate on a "fun card" payment system; fill up your kid's card at one of the kiosks and let them go crazy choosing their own adventures. When they're done, they can exchange their tickets for some fabulous prizes.
While the kids are occupied elsewhere, take a little walk over to the full bar for a beer or a cocktail. Everyone bowls a little better after a beer, right?
How about a little laser tag? Kids and adults can suit up, grab a laser shooter, and have a blast taking out the other team.
At some point you're going to get hungry. Pick out a table and then order up some dinner.
You can get the typical fried bowling alley fare as you watch one of the big-screen TVs in the sports bar...
...or you can go a little heartier with a full meal.
The Mark really sets itself apart with menu items like street tacos, Thai chicken salad, and this delicious 8 oz sirloin (with or without optional shrimp).
The Mark has three indoor courts for volleyball, basketball, or...
The insanely fun BubbleBall! Check out the wacky action in this video.
When the weather gets a little nicer, you can even head outside to one of the
nine full size sand volleyball courts. There's a second full bar outside along with two gorgeous fire pits, so you can spend an entire evening enjoying the game.
Have a party or event coming up? You can rent out just about any part of The Mark that you like. Get a private room, a few lanes, and an indoor court for a work outing, or reserve a portion of the dining area for cake and ice cream at your low-key birthday shindig.
There's really no end to the fun you can have at The Mark. Spend an entire day there to cure cabin fever or shake up your regular weekend routine. There's something for everyone to love.
