Nobody takes fun more seriously than we do!


Our Story

We’ve been in the business of providing family-friendly entertainment for more than six decades. It’s safe to say that nobody takes fun more seriously than we do!

We got our start in 1958 when James A. Ryan opened an eight-lane bowling alley under a post office in Needham, MA. Today, we’ve grown to 10 locations throughout New England with a diverse mix of traditional and cutting-edge gaming options.

While our offerings may vary by location, one thing is for certain. You’ll be greeted with a warm welcome from our team and a relaxed family vibe at every Ryan’s center. We treat our customers like members of our family. In fact, our staff consists of many generations of family members carrying on the Ryan’s tradition. We’re not franchise. We’re not big box. We’re locally owned and operated with a humble headquarters just over the Bourne Bridge on Cape Cod.



In our role as an amusement game operator, we are a recognized leader in the industry. We supply and service games to family entertainment centers, hotels, sports bars, campgrounds, and restaurants.

Our service department is on duty seven days a week ensuring maximum revenues for our location partners.

In The Community

Giving back to the communities where we operate is at the heart of our culture. From fundraisers to scholarships, we support our neighbors in numerous ways.  


We’re proud to offer $10,000 in scholarships annually to students who have an interest in pursuing a career in the hospitality industry. Ten scholarships, each in the amount of $1,000, are available in the communities where we operate. We partner with The Cape Cod Foundation to run this program. Find out how to apply here. 

Fundraising Events

Whether it’s an afternoon of bowling for “bigs” and “littles” from the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program or a special evening where we donate proceeds back to a nonprofit, we offer creative ways to raise money, increase fun, and make friends. Learn more here.  


We often contribute donations of Ryan’s Cards for all kinds of fundraising events in our communities.  If you’re a 501(c)(3) organization seeking a donation for a fundraiser, please email a detailed request to donations@ryanfamily.com.

Community Spotlight

Battle of the Badges

Annually, we host the Battle of the Badges event at Ryan’s South Yarmouth in conjunction with WCOD radio. This event brings first responders together to compete in bowling, cornhole and axe throwing for local charities. It’s become a wonderful community event that allows first responders and their families the opportunity to play, eat and compete. No stress involved!
