Like joggers crossing a highway, bowlers should avoid nearby bumpers and resist the temptation to chase wayward balls into neighbouring lanes. Roll carefully with today's Groupon to Galaxie Bowling in Aylmer. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get two games of bowling, plus shoe rentals, for up to four people (a $40 value).
- For $37, you get a two-hour lane rental for up to six bowlers, plus a large popcorn and pitcher of pop (a $74 value; shoe rental at $2 per person is not included).
At Galaxie Bowl, players pummel pins on eight 10-pin bowling lanes and twelve 5-pin bowling lanes. After selecting their three-holed pin-crusher, competitors enter their names and DNA sequences into a score-keeping computer and send orbs trundling down a narrow path toward their illuminated targets. Boulder-chuckers claiming a lane for themselves and family or friends for two hours can pull a no-look throw with one hand while the other sneaks fistfuls of popcorn. Mouths fatigued from explaining the intricacies of bowling math and its relation to the turkey can subsequently be quenched by a cooling pitcher of pop. All bowlers can instead choose to toss hard rubber balls at shorter pins in games of five-pin bowling or synchronize follow-throughs with adrenalin-pumping beats during Rock 'n' Bowl.
Among Galaxie Bowling’s 24 gleaming lanes—including 12 5-pin lanes, 8 10-pin lanes, and 4 duckpin lanes—the wooden crash of felled pins and jubilant whoops from victorious players fills the air. The brightly lit space beckons players of all ages to partake in pin pummelling throughout the day, and mirror-ball-illuminated Rock ‘n’ Bowl sessions on select evenings enable orb lobbers to show off their disco-inspired backswings. Affable libation specialists bustle about the bar ensuring that no glass reaches a state of emptiness while staffers manning the on-site snack bar proffer munchables that recharge the batteries of players and nacho-powered cyborgs alike. To further bolster their entertaining ambience, Galaxie maintains a fleet of 15 video-poker terminals for arms exhausted from extensive turkey tossing.
