Here is some information about a low-sensory bowling event:

Big Al’s offers a more subdued atmosphere for guests of all ages to enjoy low-sensory FUN!

VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON – April 16, 2013 – On Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 9:00AM to 10:00AM, Big Al’s will be hosting low-sensory bowling in Vancouver, WA (16615 SE 18th St.; 360-944-6118) and Beaverton, OR (14950 SW Barrows Rd.; 503-748-6118).

Normally a sensory-heavy experience with 42 lanes of bowling, hundreds of arcade games, and center-wide music, Big Al’s will be turning off the volume, keeping the Arcade closed, and opening the doors to guests who might want to enjoy bowling in a more subdued environment. Early bird Saturday bowl rates ($2 per game and $2 shoe rental) will be in effect for low-sensory bowling as well.

“We are excited to be hosting this event as we want to ensure all guests can discover and enjoy BIG fun at Big Al’s,” said Dan Nelson, Big Al’s Marketing Manager. “We’ve had a host of requests by parents and community groups for low-sensory bowling and are excited to create an accepting and comfortable setting for our customers.”

Guests of all ages are encouraged to come to Big Al’s to enjoy everything Big Al’s has to offer in a much more subdued setting. Parents may be especially excited to bring kids to Big Al’s during this event; as such, additional bowl ramps and lightweight balls will be available.

Normal Big Al’s operations will resume at 10:00AM as the Arcade is powered on and the Bowl Music Network again airs throughout the building.
