A bowling alley is aiming for a strike in the next LEGO Ideas review

A functioning bowling alley might just be the next LEGO Ideas set, as another project has reached 10,000 supporters and reached the LEGO Ideas review.

A trip to the bowling lanes might seem like a distant memory at the moment but thankfully, one LEGO Ideas project is bringing us back to the smooth-soled shoes and rows of pins.

LEGOParadise has now had a second submission gather enough support to be considered as a real LEGO set with a fully-working bowling alley, all you need to do is build and bowl, the model does the rest.

Thanks to a YouTube video, the features of the build can be seen in action. Not only will the model return your bowling ball after a successful strike but it will also reset the pins, after a minor manual input. LEGOParadise previously had a working waterfall reach the review but failed to go any further on LEGO Ideas. Thankfully, it is a part of the BrickLink Designer Program.

This is now the 41st project in the current round of the LEGO Ideas review, with a selection of potential sets that don’t make us envious of the LEGO Ideas judges and the decision they’ll need to make. Here is every submission in the latest round so far:
