A residential bowling alley is the perfect complement to any home recreation area. Who doesn’t love bowling? Especially if you’re skilled enough not to need the bumpers or wipe out with those sketchy, who-knows-where-they’ve-been shoes, it can be a great time. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a bowling lane in your backyard?
Imgur user Makguyver87 decided to fabricate his own lane in his backyard for his buddies and family, and it looks pretty awesome! We think this is the most amazing backyard bowling set up of all time.
He started building it because their local bowling alley closed down, and with what he called “Redgreen-ing/Macguyvering” he was able to make a pretty sweet lane. But as you know, the point of bowling is to knock down the pins, but who wants to set them up again after every turn? His brilliant idea was to create a pulley system to pull the pins back up that I love so much .
