MORE: Bowlero coming to Village at Leesburg, taking over KingPinz space

Bowlmor, the largest owner and operator of bowling entertainment venues in the world, plans to locate its newest concept, Bowlero, at the Village at Leesburg.

The new entertainment facility will take over the space currently occupied by KingPinz. Bowlero's offerings sound similar to KingPinz, featuring bowling, arcade games and “inventive eats,” according to today's announcement.

KingPinz's final day of business will be Tuesday. A Village at Leesburg spokesperson said the space will be closed temporarily for renovations. An opening date for Bowlero has not been set.

Bowlmor AMF, the parent company of Bowlero, is the largest operator of bowling centers in the world, with more than 300 locations worldwide. The company specializes in corporate and special events, as well as league and walk-in retail bowling, according to a new release. The company was created in 2013 following the merger of Bowlmor, an upscale bowling and entertainment company, and AMF Bowling Worldwide.


I just found out Kingpinz closed! I have have giftcards from there that I got for Christmas. Now what do I do??

I just found out Kingpinz closed! I have giftcards from Christmas! Is there any way to find out if Bowlero will honor these?

I hope they put some pinball machines and retro arcade games in.  Us adults need to have some fun, too!

You want fun bowling—go to Village Lanes.  KingPinz, and it sounds like this new place as well, are upscale and overpriced with crummy food and bad service.  KingPinz was another manifestation of the Top Golf phenomenon that emphasizes glitz and charges out the wazoo for it. 

I’ll pass and when I feel like really bowling I’ll take my kids and go to Catoctin Circle and have a great time for just a few bucks.

Surprised Kingpinz lasted as long as they did. Service was slow and bowling rates were too high. Hopefully Bowlero will be an improvement.

Operative terms like “inventive eats” are not a great idea from a promo standpoint but I’m grateful for the change of venue.  All kingpins offered was bowling, arcade games and non-original eats.
