    Splitsville news - Splitsville bowling, dining, music and nightlife center coming to Downtown Disney West Side

    Disney have today announced that this fall, construction will begin on Splitsville, a 50,000-square-foot upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife. To make way for this experience, RIDEMAKERZ, currently located on the West Side in the former Virign Megastore building, will move to the Marketplace. Head below for a look at the concept art for the building exterior.

    Splitsville currently operate four other locations in the USA, including two in Florida, at Miami and Tampa.

    Re: Splitsville

    So basically... Splitsville is a one-building version of what was many buildings for "Pleasure Island". If it failed once... ???

    All rolled into one big area. And honestly, who doesn't spend tons of cash to arrange a Disney World vacation... and then goes bowling?

    I actually quite like this idea - it seems like a good fit for the old Virgin Megastore building.

    I agree. Not everyone has a bowling alley near them, so a game or two on holiday would be fun. DF and I, rarely go bowling so this would be fun for us.

    I doubt we would go bowling while on a WDW vacation, but I'm sure there are others that may take a break from the parks on a rainy day for this.

    Re: Splitsville

    When I lived in Philadelphia I used to go to one of these fancy bowling alleys and it wa definitely fun. However I can't see myself bowling on a WDW vacation... Especially because I'd probably only consider it on a rainy day, and then it will be packed!

    Re: Splitsville

    Imagine flying halfway across the world... To roll a bowling ball... I can do that at home... But maybe they are trying to hit the younger generation... Personally I think Disney lost Pleasure Island when they stopped making it a hard ticket event... Making people pay to get into the area kept the "problems" away in my opinion...

    Re: Splitsville

    I'm sure people will enjoy it but it just seems to me, if alllll the clubs and fun "non-Disney" stuff to do at Pleasure Island didn't work, why would a place like this? I think the biggest "users" of this place will be Cast Members and locals. Which, as long as they make enough, is enough to keep it there for the rest of us I suppose.

    See, now I would think that not having a bowling area near you would tend to raise property values.

    Heck, come to think of it, I'll take anything that'll keep a few more people out of the parks for a while, rain or otherwise.
