Queue Handling & Paging for Bowling Centers

Manage wait times for Lanes in your Center

Manage your busy centers walk-ins

Accept Booking Traffic Light


Delay Booking Traffic Light


Decline Booking Traffic Light


On a busy weekend, league night or school break when your lanes are full and wait times are long, how do you accommodate every walk-in?  Worse still what happens when an advance booking turns up on time only to be asked to wait?

Now you can manage the flow of arriving bowlers, matching walk-ins to lane availability whilst turning lanes faster.  We're the only wait list that gives you real-time visibility of; accept, decline or delay.

Set your Bowlers Free!

Nearby: Bowling wait times can be both unpredictable and long, chances are there are restaurants and shops near your center that can serve as a waiting room - it doesn't feel like waiting when you're set free, meaning you'll convert more walk-ins.

In Center: Naturally you want to keep the guest within your center, spending money on; your arcades, eating in your diner or having a drink at your bar.  Maybe give them a Nudge via SMS Text message to incentivize this.

Optionally Call your Bowlers when their Lane's ready

They'll hear it, even in a noisy arcade, bar, deli.

Unlike a single beep SMS Text notification, which many other Text only paging solutions rely on to notify the bowler when you're ready for them.

​Second Guest is the only paging solution with a patent-pending interactive automated call as the Page, meaning you're not left second guessing if the party  will return!

Estimated wait times are just that - an estimate!

With Second Guest your bowlers are placed in a holding pattern, you can pull forward or push back their wait time at the touch of a button and your bowlers are kept updated.  You can then land them on their lane at the perfect time.

It's a win-win!
