TEN bowling lanes, nine mini-golf holes, four karaoke rooms, two escape rooms and a fully-licensed bar and open rooftop – welcome to Cannington’s newest attraction.

Strike Bowling will officially open its doors at Westfield Carousel tomorrow, its 15th location nationally.

More than a regular bowling alley, Strike features nine holes of putt-putt fun courtesy of long-time partners Holey Moley, while karaoke and escape rooms are also set to prove a popular attraction.

Holey Moley brand manager Maleik Edwards said the lure of Cannington’s large catchment area and Westfield Carousel’s recent re-development proved vital when they investigated expansion.

“We always look for areas that will work really well for not just one of our brands, but all of our brands,” he said.

“Westfield Carousel is an amazing opportunity because it means we can cater to a wide demographic.

“Us being part of the area provides an amazing entertainment anchor, but we can also best service the other areas and suburbs of Perth.”

The latest Strike Bowling will feature a brand new food and drink menu and Mr Edwards said they aimed to have a little something of everything to suit everyone.

“We try to aim to be super inclusive for everyone, from ages 8 to 18, to 80,” he said.

“We want everyone to have a great time, either coming here and doing the escape rooms or karaoke, all the way through to your next buck’s night or even just coming for a drink and a nibble.

“We offer an experience that is not only bowling, not only golf but also has amazing food and amazing cocktails.”
