Not a lot about this place, I believe the bowling part shut down in 2009 and then the crystal maze part shut down in 2010. Oakwood own this place and have no plans for it besides letting it rot away. Whoever is trying to look after this place is attempting to keep people out. Heard about this place from a different site, easy to find, such a pain in the arse to get into as there's a very tight gap to try and squeeze through..

Thee maze is bigger than first thought, only uploaded a few pictures of that.

Well you are right there isn't much information on this place... but I did some quick research and according to westerntelegraph.co.uk the place closed at the end of 2011.

That said nice report and some good pics there!

Nice effort for getting out there @jw94. What camera are you using? if its one that has options to control the shutter speed than a bit of light painting would do you very well :)

Thats a cool find, there can't be many abandoned bowling alleys in the UK!

Reminds me of the sort of place you'd go for a tenth birthday party in the 90s.  Nice one, shame its been so trashed!
