Coney’s Magic Bowling Getting More Magic

We hit the new Magic Bowling in early February when we noticed the signage going up and our devoted contributor Deborah Matlack passed by the other day and documented some progress. It was once the home of the B&B Carousell and its sign was painted over because there was apparently no way to remove from the building (to which we would answer: leave it there and figure out a creative solution). In any case, a GL Reader named Electricia fleshed out the story back then: “I think the sign was painted over awhile ago by the building owner, not the owner of this new business. Last week I talked with Alex, the owner of Surf Ave’s Magic Jungle, which is for kids birthday parties, to find out what’s planned for Magic Bowling since everyone was so curious since the sign went up. Alex says Magic Bowling will be a private party place for older kids, and yes there will be bowling among other activities. But it is not a bowling alley and not for grown ups. He said it would be completed in about a month and welcomed us to stop by and have a look then.”
