Splitsville reservation vs walk-up

It looks like the only way to reserve ahead of time is with priority bowling. For a party of four in the evening, that would be $187.50 for the lane ($125 per hour with a 1 1/2 hour minimum), plus $16 for shoes.

If we do walk-up, it would be $80 ($20 each) for 1 1/4 hours, shoes included.

So, how long's the typical wait for a walk up? Is it so bad that people are willing to pay 2 1/2 times the price for a reservation?

3 of us tried to bowl on Sunday March 3. Prob around 3pm. They told us it was a 2 1/2 hour wait. It didnt appear to be that busy, we got seats at the bar upstairs and down. We grabbed couple drinks and an app. But couldn't bowl. They told us we could make ressies but never mentioned it would up the cost!!
