  • Actual cost per game to center

    Now that I feel my parts inventory is where it should be I will have a figure I can work with. How much does a well maintained A2 cost to run per game? I know a lot of centers have budgets but that is not really what I am looking for. Has anyone like Brunswick ever calculated how much it cost per game just in man hours and parts? I know that lane conditioning and power consumption would have to be added in along with resurfacing, screening and new pins every year.
    If you have ever figured this out I would be interested in your studies.

    I just finished last years year around for 3 of our centers,we spent 2 cent a games for pinsetters parts and modifications.We have 116
    A-2's. Call if any questions.The pinsetters are in great shape and we are currently running between 2500-2600 fps for the 3 centers.

    Hope this Helps
