Disney World announces new bowling complex for Downtown Disney
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Orlando's adding mini-golf to its CityWalk. So Walt Disney World is seeing that and countering with bowling at Downtown Disney.Tweet

Disney announced today that construction will begin this fall on a Splitsville, a four-location chain with current outlets in Tampa, Miami, Texas and Virginia. Splitsville will be going into the West Side building that now houses Ridemarkerz, which will move to the Marketplace.
Splitsville is not simply a bowling alley, but, in Disney's words, "a 50,000-square-foot upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife."
Sounds like this place will try to do for bowling what Dave & Buster's did for video arcades. Thoughts?
