Jack's House

300 United States Highway 25 South
Brainerd, MN 56401


Our Family entertainment center is named “Jack’s House” in honor of Jack O. Almer. Jacks’ wife, Shirley, daughter Ginger, son Mike, along with Jack’s son-in-law Kevin, built this facility in 2003, which embodied Jack’s fun loving spirit. Jack and Shirley’s bowing ownership began in 1982 with the purchase of Wadena Lanes in Wadena, MN. Since that time, our family has increased the number of lanes from 10 to 36 including both centers.  We are sure that both, Jack and Shirley, are having a good laugh as our family continues in their tradition of insuring a great time for all of our guest. Enjoy yourself, and let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your visit with us more enjoyable.  Thanks for helping us keep Jack and Shirley’s spirit alive here at Jack’s House.
