Dream-Bowl Palace is Committed to the Best in Bowling

MUSKEGON, Mich., June 28, 2018 – Dream-Bowl Palace in suburban Munich, Germany, covers more than 59,000 sq. ft. and boasts 52 lanes, making it the largest bowling center in Europe.

The center, opened in late 2009, features Brunswick Bowling Pro Lane™ lanes, GS-X™ pinsetters, and Frameworx® furniture. After using Brunswick’s Vector® Plus scoring for almost nine years, Dream-Bowl Palace is updating to Brunswick’s Sync™ scoring and management system.

“For us, Sync is the best option” said Martin Knöbl, manager of Dream-Bowl Palace. “I like Sync’s marketing tool very much, as well as the various games. With so many different choices of games, bowlers will bowl longer and come more often.”

Dream-Bowl Palace has hosted the Brunswick Euro Challenge (BEC) games since 2013, and Brunswick recently renewed the center’s contract through 2021.

“Most of the participants in the BEC are competing in tournaments all over the world,” said Knöbl. “They’re used to the most modern bowling centers. We want to keep up with the latest and best in the industry, so it is a ‘must-do’ to install Sync.”

“We built our bowling center to accommodate European and world championship events,” said Knöbl. “We ‘live’ bowling and are committed to growing the sport of bowling in Germany.”

The 2018 Brunswick Euro Challenge broke its tour record for the second year in a row, with a staggering 1,279 entries. The BEC attracts a mix of promising amateur players and PBA stars from Europe, Asia and the U.S. It was the fourth stop in the 2018 European Bowling Tour (EBT) and only one of two EBT Platinum tournaments.

Dream-Bowl is the second-largest bowling chain in Germany.

“We updated our other Dream-Bowl centers to Sync two years ago, and we want to have all the centers on the same scoring standard,” said Knöbl.

Brunswick’s Sync is the fastest-selling scoring and management system in the world. Sync combines the most advanced scoring features with a powerful suite of center management and marketing tools, all in one seamlessly integrated system. Sync centers experience the year-over-year revenue increases and optimized efficiencies that come from running the industry’s most reliable, comprehensive management system.
