Welcome to Val Lanes Recreation Center!

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.

  In addition to automatic scoring and and bumpers, we recently installed new AMF SPL 11 synthetic lanes. These represent the latest technology in bowling lane surfaces and provide higher scores and beautiful aesthetics in our bowling center. We are always improving and reinvesting in our business to keep you coming back for more!
