Donald MacLaren Sr. has been a life-long bowler and always had an interest in bringing an entertainment venture to his hometown of Tewksbury with his son. On February 10, 2014, that idea was born to what is now Wamesit Lanes. The original site of the Motel Caswell where Wamesit Lanes sits, gave the opportunity to thrive in a premiere location. With the help of local contractors, we are proud to say, “we were built by Tewksbury, For Tewksbury”. On November 9, 2015, we celebrated our Grand Opening.
The Wamesit Lanes Family Entertainment Center is a fun, positive, family-friendly destination. We are the first and only luxury candlepin and tenpin center in the world. We offer high quality year-round entertainment for thousands of area residents of all ages.
The name comes from the original Wamesit Bowl that once stood on the lot of Home Depot, with the intention to bring back history. The Wamesit Native American tribe once inhabited the area where Tewksbury is now located. Wamesit Lanes pays homage to the important part of local history within the name and a replication of the Pow-Wow Oak Tree.
To exceed the expectations of our guest on every level at all times.
