Like a barbarian gracefully rolling cannonballs toward unsuspecting shrubbery, bowling fuses the art of spin with the ardor for obliteration. Satisfy your barbaric streak with today's Groupon: for $5, you get three games that may be split among three bowlers (up to a $11.25 value) and one shoe rental (a $3 value) at the Orleans Bowling Center inside the Orleans Hotel & Casino (up to a $14.25 total value).
The Orleans Bowling Center, ensconced inside the Orleans Hotel & Casino, tests ball-heaving stamina with 24 hours of daily bowl time. After renting shoes, step up to one of 70 lanes and impress friends, family, or familial mailpersons with your smooth, pin-pulverizing strikes. In between each of three high-stakes games, ball hurlers can unwind in the center's spacious seating area, surrounded by Technicolor backdrops and reptile-themed bowling murals. A quick visit to the on-site snack bar or cocktail lounge slakes thirst, and a stop by the K&K Bowling Services full-service pro shop can yield a spiffy new shirt or an upgrade to the more modern, self-aware bowling balls. The Orleans Bowling Center also boasts a video arcade to keep entertainment at a high between frames.
The Orleans Bowling Center's prices vary throughout the day and week.
According to Boyd Gaming, bowling centers make the perfect complement to casinos. Each different facility boasts automatic scoring, bumpers for kids, and full-service pro shops so bowlers can upgrade to the more modern, self-aware bowling balls. Here's a closer look at their four bowling centers:
