Galaxy Strikes, a new 18-lane bowling alley located in the Warrenton Village Shopping Center, celebrated its grand opening Oct. 8. 
Galaxy Strikes Bowling Center celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday and offered some of their first visitors free bowling for the afternoon.
The new 18-lane, sci-fi-themed bowling alley, located at 251 W. Lee Hwy., Suite 650 in Warrenton, was formerly a Peebles and, for a brief period, Gordman’s department store. It is now the only bowling alley in town after Broadview Lanes closed in 2013.
Alec Burnett, president of the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce, was disappointed the building was left empty for so many years. But Burnett said he was excited when he found out Brett and Patti Mills, owners of Galaxy Strikes, decided to lease the space for their new business.
“I just couldn’t be happier to have a business like this in this space because I see this kind of next generation of this iconic location,” Burnett said.
Brett Mills said opening a bowling alley has been his lifelong dream.
“It’s been a long-time coming,” he said during the ceremony. “I’ve been dreaming about this since I was in high school, and I figured if I didn’t quit what I was doing and do it now, it was never going to happen.”

In addition to bowling, Galaxy Strikes also features an arcade and nine-hole mini golf course. The arcade currently houses about nine different games to choose from, but Patti Mills said more are on the way.
“Seven more games are coming. It’s just what the country is going through right now,” she said. “Everything is backed up.”

There is also a jukebox where people can stream music and a small restaurant that offers grilled sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, and a selection of craft wine and beer.
Many people, including Adam Parezo, who lives in Woodbridge but spends a lot of time with his fiancé in Warrenton, said they believe the bowling alley is a welcome addition.
“The community needed some form of entertainment to bring everybody in,” Parezo told FauquierNow. “Good family fun. Lots of options. I think this was definitely needed for the community.”
Denise King, who lives in Vint Hill, said she was excited about the business opening because it has also given people in the community with special needs the opportunity to have jobs and gather together.
“And we have a group of six special needs kids that are here … that work with Special Olympics, and it gives them a great opportunity for something to do together as a group,” King said.” It’s a wonderful environment, and we all are encouraged by the hope that our kids can grow and have jobs themselves.”
People may join several types of leagues at the new alley, including senior, ladies, youth, doubles and mixed, which are hosted various times throughout the week.
Galaxy Strikes features 18 lanes of bowling with special monitors people can use to purchase food and games. 
But if you’re just coming with your friends, it’s $5 per person for one game, or $19.85 per lane for one hour of bowling up to six people. Galaxy Strikes also offers “Glow Bowling” from 8 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, which is $24.95 per lane.
On their first visit, patrons must purchase a “Fun Card,” which requires a one-time $3 activation fee. People can use the card to pay for bowling, mini-golf, arcade games, food and beverages. The card may be used for future visits.
