The ad is from the 60's. I know that's a crappy answer but I'll have to go back to the library and write the year down. It was from the first time I found any ads so I was freaking out and forgot to take notes. Here is another ad, this one is from the 80's and it's no longer open 24 Hours



My sister worked there in the early 80's and I went in there a couple of times. I don't remember any of those Puffy Tiki Snow People being there then.

WOW. I must have missed this place the first time the post was going around. Another great googie bowling alley with a Tiki twist. Here is a great old B & W photo I found showing the sign, the building and the Tiki things.

Found this Tropicana Lanes postcard where the "Polynesian atmosphere prevails throughout this fabulous 56 lane community bowling center." Uh hum. Besides the ferns I don't quite see the Polynesian atmosphere prevailing here. Regardless, I have to give them some credit for this fine lobby. At least what might have been the lobby...
