The next generation of Bowling arrives at Dundonald Ice Bowl

June 20, 2017

Dundonald International Ice Bowl is setting the standard for extreme entertainment, following an investment of £212,000 to upgrade the bowling software with the innovative new QuibicaAMF system.

The revolutionary new system called BES X allows bowlers to enjoy new and exciting animations and cutting edge game formats, controlled right from their bowling lane. There is also single and multi-lane game options as well as the ability to upload your team’s photos, creating a fun way to bowl and socialise so the fun doesn’t stop for any age.

Former Chairman of the Council’s Leisure & Community Development Committee, Councillor Tim Morrow was delighted to launch the BES X system: “The new BES X system is a welcome addition to Dundonald International Ice Bowl which has a proud history of bowling success stories.  In 2004, the centre introduced the highly popular glow-in-the-dark Xtreme Bowling sessions, which have grown from strength to strength, then in 2008 the centre staged the prestigious Commonwealth Tenpin Bowling Championship with competitors from over 15 countries taking part.

“The new BES X system is an exciting development for the centre which will undoubtable enhance the bowling experience for our customers.  The introduction of new games and animations is expected to create a new dimension of fun to the bowling game which will have customers coming back again and again to try a new game or challenge.  Families can also enjoy the new bumper rails which can be used for selected bowlers to help children or those new to bowling build their confidence so they can feel part of the game.
“I would encourage people to trial the new BES X system for themselves as it makes the perfect activity for a family day out or group activity this summer, plus you can enjoy the choice of other activities within the centre for hours of endless fun.”
