Bowling is better with friends, as you have someone there to talk to between turns and to watch your back when pins decide they've had enough. Bring some backup with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two hours of bowling and shoe rental for two people at AMF Bowling Centers (up to a $47.39 average national value during prime bowling hours; this deal's maximum value varies by location from $23.98 to $69.30). This Groupon is valid at all AMF locations and is good any time.
Gleaming lanes, modern equipment, and tempting refreshments satisfy every stripe of striker at AMF Bowling Centers. Spend two rotations of the minute hand gracefully lobbing three-holed marbles at stoic ivory formations as automatic scoring systems and pin-spotters free fingers for celebratory handstands. Bowlers young and old compete to pick up strike- and spare-hitchhikers with an appropriately weighted ball from the center's stable of spheres. Before beginning the pin bombardment, players don the included rental shoes, ensuring their homemade bowling cleats don’t scratch polished surfaces.
Players can curb game-induced cravings with a selection from the wings, pizza, and burgers available at the on-site grill (not included with this Groupon). Most AMF locations stay open late into the night for 10-pin diehards to practice and sleep-bowlers to actually bowl instead of rooting through refrigerators to throw cantaloupes at milk cartons; check your preferred location for specific hours.
Valid at any time. Prime bowling hours are 5 p.m.–9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m.–close on Friday, all day Saturday, and noon–9 p.m. on Sunday; call your local center for pricing.
AMF Bowling Centers
Across nearly three-fourths of the United States, AMF Bowling Centers reverberate year-round as families, friends, and competitors send bowling balls in search of upright pins careening down slick lanes. The company first established itself as an industry leader in 1946, the same year the sport introduced automated pinspotters, which allowed the teens who had previously been hand-setting the pins to focus on perfecting their jazz hands for upcoming street rumbles.
Today, more than 20 million bowlers annually make AMF their battleground for wars against pins. They attempt to knock them down during leagues, club play, and events such as birthday parties and fundraisers.
Between frames, AMF keeps players energized at onsite food zones stocked with wings, pizzas, burgers, and beer.
