The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Bowling

82 Comments

MALL – BOWLING ALLEY – TEEN AND ADULT SIMS – PRIZES: MALL SHOPS, JUICE BAR AND 5LPs

 

Once you complete the Catwalk Model hobby, build the stores and clean up areas 3 and 4 of the mall (see my guide to the mall for more details) you will be able to build the bowling alley and then your teen and adult sims can bowl.

There are 4 lanes in the bowling alley so you can have 4 sims bowling at once, click on a bowling lane and select:

  • Let’s bowl!- 6 hours 30 minutes

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the bowling collectibles. Every time your sims bowl their bowling hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the bowling collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL Let’s Bowl!
1-2 133%
2-3 49%
3-4 29%
4-5 23%
5-6 16%

For example you would need to bowl 7 times to reach level 6 from level 5

NOTE: it says 133% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what bowling collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP UNLOCKS 2nd+ TIMES LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Gutter Baller Gutter Ball and Ball Dump are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 7-10 Split Single and Big Five are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Spare Setter Big Ears and 7-10 Split are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Spinking Cranker and Down are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Punch Out Queen Striker is now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 The Perfect Baller Spare, Turkey and Perfect Game are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!

1LP

NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed bowling collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete the 2nd and 4th row you will unlock a new mall store, after this time you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

Stores:

Find all three in the second row to unlock:

  • Dreams (teen females)- S80,000 -20 hours to build

Find all three in the fourth row to unlock:

  • Classy Clothing (adult female)- S125,000 -16 hours to build

Check out my Guide to the Mall post for more information on these stores

 

The rewards for completing this collection are the juice bar and 5LPs:

  • The first time you complete the bowling collection you unlock the Juice Bar:

imageNOTE: you need to press the upstairs button at the mall to get the icon to build the juice bar, if you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The icon should appear now.

What can you do with the juice bar?
You can have a sim mix juice for 10 hours and teen, adult and senior sims can sit at the table and wait for drink order for 10 minutes, they will then take 8 minutes to drink it.
Teens can sit at the stools and hang out for 10 minutes
image

  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs

  1. This hobby is bugged for me I keep getting the same two over and over again. It is very annoying.

  2. Once you unlock the dream for teens, where do you buy them?

  3. Not related to this post, but can somebody help me please? I’ve added a new sim called Layla Silver, but before I got out from the “add a new sim” thing, I usually tap confirm it without looking twice. So when I did that, I saw the name had changed into Layla Roetingger. So now my sim’s name is Layla Roetingger. I hate this name! I don’t want to spend 12LPs just to change the surname! 😦

  6. Are you going to write a post for the new castle/medieval/royalty quest stuff?

  7. If you start a new collection for the Bowling Hobby are there any new rewards after earning all the different moves again?

  8. I unlocked all of the parts of the shoping mall, except the last one. I also build all of the shops, but i cant unlock the last part, which also unlocks the bowling hobby. I cleaned the whole mall, so i dont understand why i cant unlock the last part. Do you know something that might help?

  9. In the bowling alley, what is the purpose of servicing the counter at the entrance? I understand the servicing the burger bar so other sims can eat but this servicing I’m not sure what it should be used for?

  10. I have completed the catwalk hobby but the bowling still hasn’t unlocked. It says I need to win the “grand prize” in the catwalk hobby. What is the grand prize that I need to win in order to unlock bowling?

    • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

  11. My bowling alley is not able to be opened. I’ve completed the catwalk hobby 5 times (did it for the pajama contest) cleaned all areas of the mall and built all the stores (except the 2 that need the bowling hobby to be completed) it does not give me the option to build the bowling alley. I’m frustrated.

    • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

  12. Please help! I completed the cat walking hobby and got all the sleepwear but it won’t let me open the bowling alley. Do I have to do the catwalk hobby all over? Thank you

    • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

  13. I had the bowling hobby collection done like weeks ago. And I didn’t build the juice bar yet cause I was building a horse stable at the time. I just went to the mall to see if I can build the juice bar and I couldn’t find the lock for the juice bar. Is the juice bar over already?

  14. Ive completed all the bowling hobby but i cannot find the icon for building the juice bar. I also opened all the shops already in the mall. How do you build the juice bar? Thanks!

    • you need to go up a floor (using the floor arrow button) to get the option to build the juice bar

      • I’m not seeing an upstairs option at the mall. I already have Pickle Sauce built but I can’t unlock the escalator to the Juice Bar section. I just finally completed the bowling hobby.

      • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  15. I have finally finished the bowling hobby && built the last store but the space for the juice bar is still empty. I tried waiting a few days and the option to buy it is not there. Was there a time limit on that hobby to be able to access the juice bar?

  16. I completed the bowling hobby and got the message saying that I unlocked the juice bar but it’s not there. I did have about 5 boxes left in the mall so maybe that’s part of the issue? Do I need to build all the stores first?

  17. I had two of my sims do the bowling hobby so I could finish it faster. I completed the hobby almost two weeks ago and it said I unlocked the juice bar, but the juice bar icon isn’t where the juice bar should be. It’s just an empty floor. Is the juice bar no longer an option?

  18. I had two sims do the bowling hobby, and when they finished, it said that I unlocked the juice bar. However, in the space where the juice bar should be, there is no hovering icon. So, I don’t have the option to build the juice bar. What can I do about this?

  19. I completed all of the bowling level actions and built all of the shops in the mall but I don’t have any option to build the juice bar (I don’t even see the lock sign). Have you heard of this glitch?

  20. I completed the bowling hobby yesterday, but the juice bar didn’t unlock. Is there anything I need to do to unlock it?

  21. I completed the bowling hobby but did not receive the juice bar. Why is this?

  22. I finished the bowling hobby but for some reason i can’t find the button to build the juice bar. Do I have to build all the malls?

  23. Hi, I finished the catwalk model hobby and I can’t access to the bowling hobby, I need to build all the stores to access? Tank you for your help.

  24. How long did it roughly take you to get all the shots I still have 3 more to collect and I’ve been doing this for weeks now with no luck just keep getting the easy ones like single and gutter really is annoying

    • I can’t remember exactly, probably about 2 weeks, some are just harder to find than others the only advice I can really give you is just keep on going, you will get them eventually.

      • I can’t find the the icon to second floor at all but I really wanna build the juice bar!!!! Ur blog I s amazing

      • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.
        Thanks!

  25. I completed the bowling hobby but haven’t built the juice bar, I don’t have an arrow to go upstairs though..

    • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  26. I was completed bowling hobby, but i cant unlock juice bar? What is happend?

    • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  27. I just finished the bowling hobby and got a message that the juice bar is unlocked, but I can’t build it in any way and there is no button for going to the second floor of the mall :/ Does anybody else have this problem?

    • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  28. I found a solution on the Sims Freeplay Support site! This issue is listed there as a known problem as of yesterday and the solution is to tap on one of the benches on the second floor.

    I had to take a Sim to the mall, trap a bench and choose “rest from shopping”, then the icon for building the juice bar appeared 😀

  29. Hi, I’ve completed the bowling quest and can’t build the juice bar. I’ve read your advice for others that you need to go up a level. I don’t have the icon to do that?
    I’ve check the restaurant and it’s there to go up to the second floor but not at the mall?
    It wasn’t there when I built the burger bar either and I’ve built that?
    I’m not sue what I’m missing 😦
    Thanks for all your blogs they are so useful.

    • If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  30. I have completed the bowling hobby and have the mall cleaned up. I have tried to access the burger bar since, as well as build the juice bar, but both sets of escalators are blocked. How do I open the escalators to access the second floor?

  31. how do you unlock memory lane i unlocked the wish fountain but when i get to memory lane it still has a grey lock on it and it says i have to have 8 stores but i’ve built all the stores they let me everything else wont unlock someone please let me know how to unlock this freakin memory lane.

  32. I’ve had 2 Sims bowling and they are level 6 but they still only get gutter ball or other level 1 or 2 shots. It’s so frustrating, especially after 6 1/2 hours. Is there a bug?
    Thanks for your posts, just looking at the hobbies list I’ve realise how many more there are I’ve not got access to yet!

    • No there isn’t a bug, the bowling hobby just seems to take a while! I think I got gutter ball about 20 times in a row!
      You’re welcome! To be honest there are still hobbies missing from that list that I haven’t done yet either!

  33. problems in 3 missions:
    – Makeup Artist Hobby – Grand prize won: Completed level 6 but still i can`t open the coin fountain (requirements are not checked)
    – Fashion hunter hobby – Grand prize won: completed level 6 but still i can`t open the simtown cinema (requirements are not checked)
    – survivalist hobby – grand prize won: completed leve 6 but still i can`t open the suspension bridge (requirements are not checked)

    off all the 3 missions it looks like it not reconized that i already did all the requirements..

    • I think you should contact EA to see why you haven’t been able to unlock any of these, hopefully they will be able to sort it out for you as unfortunately I am unable to fix technical issues

  34. Have they fixed the glitch about not being able to start the bowling hobby? I unlocked that portion of the mall, but it still says I have to complete the catwalk grand prize to unlock bowling… I completed the catwalk hobby multiple times when the sleepwear prize was going on. Frustrating…

  35. I don’t think preteens can have smoothies at the juice bar anymore. I sent my preteen to a neighbor’s sunset mall. With no one servicing the burger bar or juice bar, my preteen could still wait for burger, but it says en only adults seniors and teens can have juice. Btw, yes, I am clicking the tables and not the actual bar itself.

  36. I have completed the Juice bar but I can’t seem to be able to build the escalator beside it. I have had this issue for over 6 months now. What am I doing wrong?

    • Do you mean the one that goes up to the floor above? Have you tried building the escalator on the other side?

      • @sparkle The escalator leads to the 2nd floor off-the-wall mall close to the movie theater. But you must-have completed building the opposite 2nd floor side close to the kiddie playground first

  37. I’ve been playing this hobby for months and it still hasn’t given me the last 3 icons! Am I doing something wrong?
    This happened with my figure skating hobby too and I had to use LP’s…
