NEW CASTLE ” A new name, ownership, menu and entertainment lineup are just some of the changes being made at the former New Castle SuperBowl ” now called Burning Mountain SuperBowl.

“We’re under new management and ownership,” said Tammy Klein, marketing director for the bowling alley. “We’ll have new programs such as Happy Hour bowling Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. Buy one game and get one free.”

The bowling alley is now owned and operated by the Balcomb family, who bought out their former partners, the Steeles.

A Saturday special called “A Time to Spare” will be a family event that includes two hours of bowling, shoe rental, four large sodas and four plates of barbecue for $75.

Old favorites and weekend specials will still be offered, including the cosmic bowling and light show from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; and kids cosmic bowling from 2-4 p.m. on Saturdays and 1-3 p.m. on Sundays; children’s birthday party spare and strike packages; and a Thursday night Wrinkle program for seniors. League bowling is offered five nights a week with Saturday morning for youth bowling leagues beginning in October.

A new barbecue menu features Big Hoss BBQ from Boulder with brisket, pulled pork, ribs and more.

The building is also undergoing some remodeling.

“I think we definitely needed some changes ” it needed to be invigorated,” said Bo Balcomb, who is manager and co-owner of the facility.

Music will now be offered once a month through promoter Noreen Nolan of New Castle. The first band, Ralph Dinosaur and the Fabulous Volcanoes, of Durango, will perform from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 7, in the bar area. No one under 21 is allowed.

“It will be good music and a good time,” Nolan said.

Comedy will also begin in January, with a special dinner/comedy package planned for Valentine’s Day.

Hours are Monday, 3-11 p.m.; Tuesday, 3 p.m. – 1 a.m.; Wednesday, 1 p.m. – 12 a.m.; Thursday, 1 p.m. – 1 a.m.; Friday, 3 p.m. – 1 a.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. – 1 a.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
