This 48,000-square-foot entertainment complex is centered on bowling, but that’s not all it has to offer.
Even people with little interest in knocking down pins enjoy the party here, which features LED lighting and a killer sound system. The main bowling room has 16 lanes, a bar, a bistro and lots of space.

Then there are the chic VIP lanes. Managers say they are the only white lanes in the country. The color makes it possible to project anything on them, from different hues to company logos. The LED lights, wraparound screens and HD projectors are perfect for viewing concerts, sporting events or anything else you prefer.
VIP bowlers can be shut off from the rest of the complex by garage-like doors. You have your own bar and eight lanes, so you really don’t need to go anywhere else.
Perhaps the most unique bowling experience can be found in Pin Boyz, another private room. Only this one has a 1908 theme, and the pins in the four lanes are reset by hand, just like in the old days. The employees dress in period costumes, and there are museum pieces like an old Victrola, wooden bowling balls and more.
The pool table, a 1908 original, was the inspiration for the room’s theme. An adjoining room makes this space perfect for parties, presentations or even corporate gatherings where both meeting space and fun space is desired.
Just remember: Pin Boyz must be reserved in advance.

When you walk into to HeadPinz, you can’t help but notice the Game Zone; it’s lit up like Vegas, with popular video and arcade games. Purchase a Passport to Fun card, and play as much as you want. The card keeps track of all points earned. Cash them in at the redemption center for stuffed animals, skateboards, electronics and more.
Laser Tag is perhaps the most popular game here, with waits that can stretch up to two hours. Twenty-five people at a time can participate in a 15-minute tag session. Meanwhile, the aerial ropes course gives adventure-seekers a bird's-eye view of the laser tag action. The ropes course is suspended 12 feet above the Game Zone.
Another one-of-a-kind feature is the JukinBox. Its lighted dance floor resembles a Twister board, and you can choose any genre of music to play to.
Aside from bowling and gaming, HeadPinz has four bars, including Nemo’s Sports Bistro, with both indoor and outdoor seating. They’ve hired a chef who actually prepares things like lamb, not just pizza and burgers as one might anticipate.
Although, the pizza here is delicious, with two ovens continuously cranking out pies. The hit for big parties is the 48-inch pizza.
The owners have thought of just about everything for this new hot spot. There's so much to do under one roof. No matter what your age, you’ll enjoy the unique nighttime scene at HeadPinz Fort Myers.
