Great location, a wealth of attraction, dedicated staff…Bundy Bowl and Leisure Centre managing directors Peter and Jeanette McElligott appreciate now more than ever having the winning combination after this school holidays.
Peter and Jeanette have been celebrating having experienced the busiest school holiday period in the 42 years Bundy Bowl has been operating in Bundaberg.
Asked where visitors have been hailing from, Peter said they were welcoming a great mix of local as well as visitors from Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Gladstone, the Sunshine Coast and also Brisbane.
“We have been extremely happy with the positive response from visitors to our area who have been saying they have had an amazing time with us which is always welcome news,” he said.
“Visitors have even gone so far as asking us to consider having a centre like ours in their city as they don’t have the variety of activities under one roof as we are able to appreciate in Bundaberg.”
While of course visitors to the centre have rejoiced in being able to enjoy the centre whether it is fine or wet outside, air-conditioning is also a welcome addition when taking part in so many lively activities.
With the games room a popular space this school holidays, Peter and his team had to work hard to ensure the prize room was restocked and ready daily.
Another section of the Bundy Bowl and Leisure Centre that was popular with a variety of ages was the new Jumanji escape room, along with both the asylum and virtual reality rooms.
Peter reminded those who were interested that the new season for tenpin bowling started when children went back to school.
“Anyone wishing to play in a social club for juniors/ladies/mens/mixed and persons with special needs, please follow us on Facebook Bundy Bowl or call the centre,” he said.
