New SC Petro truck stop features bowling alley

Being built off I-77 near Columbia, South Carolina, the new truck stop will feature a Belt Lanes 16-lane bowling alley.

Hey, there ya go. I was in a bowling league years ago. I might bowl at a truck stop.

What a great way to kill some time, get mild exercise and fraternize with other drivers. Cool!

This is awesome, I was an avid bowler but now that I'm out on the road I can't commit to a league like I used to do. I can only hope when I'm on home time that someone needs a substitute and i can go do it.

Kind of sucks they are catering to 4 wheelers more than trucks. I don't think I have ever seen more than 50 cars ata bowling alley, never seen one more than half full... yet this one is going to have 300 carspots and a little over 100 truck spots... they're seriously expecting 3x as many cars? and even if that's the case what are 300 people (assuming each car brought 1 person) going to do with only 16 lanes. I believe each bowling lane is a max of 4 people... 16 x 4 is 64.... so 64 people can bowl at a time, what do the other 240or so do?

Well, when I bowled the place was full every night for leagues, and there was 2 lanes for two teams, and 4 or 5 bowlers per team. Also it says that there's a 276 seat restaurant.
