Optional uChoose™ Themes
Deliver a constant stream of fun with this huge collection of fast-paced, humorous, perfectly timed graphics designed for every age. With uChoose Theme Selection, bowlers can choose their own themed environments right at the lane, and themes are applied instantaneously so bowlers don’t have to wait. Choose from an array of creative new themes designed for every age and skill level—from kids to adults and from casual to competitive bowlers. And now every frame of every theme is rendered in full 1920×1080p resolution for the most vivid possible picture.
The themes below are available in addition to the Standard Themes.
Competition That’s Friendly and Fun!
Our Interactive Games dramatically enhance open-play fun and league competition by allowing bowlers to compete against each other from lane to lane. In-center marketing materials come included.
Race your car to the finish line by achieving goals — strikes, spares, etc. But watch out. If you cross the foul line, the car moves backward. First car to cross the finish line wins!
Here, the computer randomly selects goals—strikes, spares, etc. Points are only awarded for goals when they are displayed and the lane with the most points at the end of the time period wins.
With Perfection, your bowlers decide by setting their own list of goals—strikes, spares, etc. The game will display the list of goals still needed to win and the first lane to complete all goals wins.
Each team simply selects one of three doors to reveal their prize.
The lane that bowls a strike the fastest after being cued wins. All participating lanes and times of strikes are displayed.
Here, the required number of strikes is set at the start with each strike moving the rope in the team’s direction. The first team to reach the required number of strikes wins.
As bowlers achieve center-defined goals, this special pin walks from lane to lane.

Build Awareness, Build Sales
The Brunswick Digital Signage system can help you drive incremental revenue and improve customer service by allowing you to better communicate with your customers and cross-sell products and services. Digital Signage software lets you display everything from a live waiting-list to ads for your latest promotions. And with available new Samsung monitors, now everything on the screen is displayed in HD.
The system’s intuitive user interface makes it easy to input and update display content and establish or modify display schedules. It comes with an extensive library of customizable ad templates, marketing and promotional videos, and promotional material for open bowling, league bowling, Cosmic Bowling®, snack bar, parties, pro shop and more.
Display lane assignments and advertises products and services with continuous scrolling text messaging, as well as wait lists and price menus in real time. Will also display live scoring to create added excitement during competitive play, rewarding competitive bowlers by showing high scores after each game or over the entire season.
Digital Signage even generates additional income streams through sales of advertising to other local businesses. Ads are automatically tracked and verified on the system with “proof of play” reports. Off-site flexibility allows you to manage your marketing from anywhere with full accessibility to your system via the Internet.
Online and On Target
This newly enhanced feature gives you a direct line to droves of Internet-age convenience-cravers, letting them make reservations at your center online, anytime. Guests can share these reservations online via social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, giving you bonus buzz. And customers can now make Internet reservations from your Facebook page or with the app using only their Facebook sign-in info, instead of having to set up a log-in for your site. They can even coordinate their Internet Reservations with evite to send online invitations to group events at your center. And the entire app is designed and optimized for smart phones – a Brunswick exclusive.
This system also lets bowlers add food, beverages or a specific party package to their online reservation. If lanes are all full at the time, customers can add their names to the waiting list, and track their spot in line.
Of course you maintain final control and can restrict reservations availability by days, time periods and/or lanes. Finally, the app accelerates revenues (and minimizes no-shows) by letting you collect deposits or full payments with reservations.
The Next Best Thing To Being There
Online scoring allows visitors to your web site from anywhere to view live scoring action for any pair of lanes in your center. Your bowlers will love the high-tech convenience of allowing family and friends to follow their progress online during a tournament or league final. It’s also a great way to reach potential customers and share the fun and excitement of bowling with the whole family.

Better Management Brings Costs Down and Productivity Up

League & Tournament
Keeps Record Keeping Under Control
This system allows users to efficiently handle the additional record keeping and administration that go along with hosting bowling leagues and tournament play.
It integrates with Brunswick and CDE League & Tournament applications and provides easy league accounting and record keeping, including prize fund tracking.
It also gives you the ability to create “Lite Leagues” for leagues that don’t use your administrative services, or for regular non-league clubs and groups.
Better For You…and Your Customer
When it comes to managing your facility, it’s all about interface. Successful interaction between staff, customers, equipment and systems can and does make a critical difference in the success of your business. So, why leave it to chance? Brunswick interface offerings provide seamless interaction with leading restaurant, bar and entertainment center systems, allowing you to better leverage your existing investment and increase operational efficiency. Better interface made easy…it just makes sense.
Lockers & Rental Control
Easy Management, Easy Revenue!
Now you can effortlessly manage traffic for time-based products, turning valuable assets into a non-stop revenue stream. When it comes to lockers, user-defined color-coding allows you to check status (vacant, reserved, overdue, rented, expired and storage) at a glance.
“Banks” of lockers can be created to closely match your center’s layout and the system will even notify you of maintenance problems and generates invoice or utilization reports.
For billiards management, the screen layout can be designed to match your center’s table layout and the universal AC power controller can even control lighting from the front desk.
