The Castaways Hotel and Casino (1/2)

Initially built in 1959, the Castaways bowling alley quickly became the showstopper of the Las Vegas hotel. Boasting a US-record of over a hundred lanes, for years it was the unquestionable king of American lanes everywhere and attracted thousands of visitors every single year. Regularly hosting televised competitions that proved to be equally appealing to audiences across the globe, the bowling alley at Castaways did a lot to heighten the boom surrounding Las Vegas in the twentieth century. 

Sadly the business fell on bad ownership and was shut down in the early 2000s. By 2006 it had been demolished and now there is only a portable casino present where the proud complex once stood.
