| Location Information
Barney's Bowlarama is bowling alley on the edge of Springfield. It is owned by Barney Gumble's Uncle Al Gumble.
The Bowl-O-Rama was destroyed when a fire in downtown Springfield destroyed it, alongside Symphony Hall, the Springfield Museum of Natural History, and the Springfield Arts Center. However, it was rebuilt quickly, and subsequently destroyed in other episodes, such as when it was picked up by a hurricane and moved on top of a thin rock formation.
The church sermons were held here after Homer won a court case to own the First Church of Springfield.
Every week, they had a league night, which includes various teams of 4 bowlers each.
- The Pin Pals are a team that consists of Homer and his pals.
- Holy Rollers are a team that consists of religious characters. They dress up like monks and have a choir.
- The Stereotypes are a team that consists of stereotypical characters (who were just dying to have Apu on their team, but Apu declined)
