This site is dedicated to serving your needs to explore the world of bowling at West Des Moines' hottest family fun center!
Val Lanes was built in 1957. Originally a 24-lane bowling center, Val Lanes added 12 more lanes in 1959 to provide more entertainment in the West Des Moines community.
Val Lanes was purchased by the Torgerson family (Denny, Colleen, Jon, Tony & Randy) in 2009, bringing with them many years of combined bowling industry knowledge and experience. We are able to provide the continued customer service and entertainment experience Val Lanes has always been known to offer.
We have state-of-the-art AUTOMATIC SCORING and AUTOMATED BUMPERS on EVERY lane. We are always improving and reinvesting in our business to keep you coming back for more!
