Cleaning and Sanitation Practices

at Midway Lanes

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Midway Lanes has been taking extra precautions in relation to our cleaning and sanitizing habits. Since our closure on March 16th, 2020, we have torn apart every inch of our Bowling Center and The Fun Zone Entertainment Center with great attention to detail. As we begin to go back to normal life together, we hope to inform all of our loyal customers of all the procedures and sanitation practices we will continue to implement on a daily basis and also while customers are in our facility. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our employees and our bowlers. Below is a breakdown of our current practices and procedures.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns

in relation to any of our practices.

PLEASE WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES

We ask that everyone please respect each others personal space and try to maintain 6 feet in distance

This will stay in effect until the State of New York deems it unnecessary in public places. All of our staff will be wearing masks at all times and receiving temperature checks at the beginning of their shifts.

Here is an overview of the cleaning and disinfecting

accomplished prior to reopening

LET US INTRODUCE OUR NEW

BEST FRIEND, MICRO STRIKER!

AN ADVANCED HOUSE BALL 

AND MULTI PURPOSE CLEANER FOR BOWLING CENTERS

With the growing concern over sanitation due to COVID-19, our team of engineers and chemists have been focused on solutions that may face the bowling industry in coming months. One concern is the use of shared items like rental shoes and bowling balls. To encourage all bowlers to feel safe returning to Bowling Centers, we are working hard to provide options for Bowling Centers to show that they are taking steps to protect the health and safety of their customers.  

MICRO STRIKER'S PARTNER IN CRIME, THE ELECTROSTATIC STERILIZATION SPRAYER!

THE WHAT AND THE HOW OF HOW WE KEEP OUR BARRIERS BETWEEN THE LANES CLEAN AND SANITIZED

This machine creates a very fine water fog of our Micro Striker Cleaning Solution to neutralize bacteria. The core of this Battery Sprayer is a specially designed anion generator that continuously produces a high concentration of anions which are negatively charged. Most of the dust and bacteria particles in the air are positively charged so the high concentration of anions created can neutralize positively charged bacteria and particles in the air and on surfaces quickly and easily. Once bacteria and other particles are met with the anions, their weight is increased and they fall to the ground neutralized. 

Please keep an eye out for our Sanitation Stations of disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer

LET US INTRODUCE OUR OTHER NEW BEST FRIEND, THE JAYHAWK BOWLING BALL DETOX MACHINE!

JUST 30 SECONDS COMPLETELY DISINFECTS AND CLEANS YOUR BALL INSIDE AND OUT!

This machine uses ultra-sonic cleaning to generate millions of microscopic bubbles that get into the pores of a bowling ball, unlike other standard methods. It safely removes all oil and grime within 30 seconds!

WE HAVE DISPOSABLE

HEADPHONE AND GOGGLE

PROTECTIVE COVERS

Our BRAND NEW Cyber Zone has a few pieces of equipment that need special attention to ensure they are as sanitary as possible for each user. Along with using sanitizing wipes on all our equipment, we've also purchased protective covers to help cut down on the transfer of germs and other bacteria.

BRAND NEW MERV-13

AIR FILTERS INSTALLED

When you walk in our doors we want our customers to know that we have taken every precaution possible to ensure the health, safety and well-being of each and every person. One of the many ways we are doing this is by installing BRAND NEW MERV-13 air filters throughout our entire facility to ensure the air circulating throughout our family entertainment center is as clean as possible. These air filters are used within hospital inpatient and general surgery facilities and filter out a large array of particles such as:

- Viruses (Including Covid-19 Particles)

- Cough and Sneeze Particles

- Dust and Lint

- Dust Mites

- Mold

- Pollen

- Smoke

- Smog

- Pet Dander

- Bacteria
