I suspect it was one of them what went to a group of poor reviewers but could you take a look at this submission and advise if there is any improvements that I can make?
I would just resubmit but dont upgrade. Nominations looks fine to me
I assume this bowling alley is a one off and not part of a chain?
If so, all I can think of to change would be to drop 'hyperspot' (which is overstating it a tad). Also the 'for adults' bit in the last line. Over sensitive reviewers might see that as falling foul of the 'no adult orientated businesses' rule.
Remember, it is only recently that the guidelines were changed/clarified to encourage players to submit local businesses. Reviewers have spent years instantly 1* this kind of submission as generic business and it will take a while for attitudes to change.
Hollywood Bowl is most definitely a big chain for bowling in the UK.
You can still try to resubmit even if it is a chain if it is important to the local community, but that will make it harder. If there are any events they host for the community, you can include that in the supporting information. Sometimes on businesses it is easier to get some kind of art inside approved if there is anything cool to submit.
If it is the only bowling alley in town it doesn’t really matter if its a chain or not. If there are 3 of them it would be a bit more difficult. They do fit the criteria very well. Social aspect and exercise from bowling
