The newly reconstructed bowling alley has many new features.
"We have new state-of-the-art lighting and a new state-of-the- art scoring system. All the lanes are brand new and the machines are newer than we had before," Stewart said. "It’s running much smoother, much better."
Other new features at the Smithtown Lanes include an automatic bumper system for those bowlers who need a little help.
“I am proud of the work AMF Smithtown has put into reconstruction,” said Bowlmor AMF CEO Tom Shannon. “They are coming back better and stronger than before.”
Bowlmor AMF, the operator and owner of AMF Smithtown Lanes, has not released details on how much the reconstruction and renovations of the bowling alley has cost.
The reopening is generating buzz among residents and league bowlers, according to Stewart, as leagues continue being transferred back to the Smithtown location from nearby Centereach, Commack and Sayville lanes.
"We’ve gotten quite a few open bowlers who have stumbled by or were watching the doors
waiting for us to open," Stewart said. "They are very excited."
A grand opening celebration is the works, but an exact date and time won't likely be announced until later this week, according to Stewart.
