    push it down when it touches the deck the pins release the ball shooter is like a pin ball one. the lane is 8 ft
    long , it was made for kids ,, but it play's so real a lot for fun..Click image for larger version

              So I know this is an old post but maybe someone can help me out. How is the lane actually made? Cause it looks like a sanded down 2x4 or 2x6 or something lol
