King Pins announces Arndale Centre launch date

28th March 2024 | Gabrielle Darne

Bowling operator King Pins is launching its second Manchester site and first city centre location from 17th May at the Arndale Centre.

The brand, which launched their first Manchester site in Trafford Palazzo last summer, signed a deal to occupy a previously vacant unit, creating a second home for ‘The Crown Jewels of Bowling’ in the city centre. 

The second King Pins site will boast a variety of activities for all ages, including its signature state-of-the-art ten-pin and duck-pin bowling, karaoke party rooms, arcade games, American pool, shuffleboard, batting cages and ice-free curling, as well as King Pins debuts for mini golf, tech darts and Wild West Shooting at the new location.

James Travis, brand manager at King Pins, said, “We can hardly contain our excitement as the opening date draws nearer for our second site! To be joining over 200 brands in one of the UK’s leading shopping and leisure destinations, Manchester Arndale, is an honour. Our second home will still feature our signature ten-pin and duck-pin bowling offering that we know our guests have come to love, alongside a range of new activities such as tech darts and mini-golf. We’re also really pleased to announce our friends PLY and Wings of Power will be joining us once again to serve up more delicious grub in the new site. See you in May!”
