Under the umbrella of The Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey, an eclectic group of alleys work together to fill the region with the thunder of scattering pins. At most of Bowling Proprietors' bowling centers, bowlers keep track of pummeled pins with automatic scoring, and bumpers, which arrive at the call of a button, keep balls on course without filling the gutters with retired VCRs. Snack bars at some locations bolster ravenous bowlers, and game rooms in select centers keep hand-eye coordination in peak condition. Free WiFi is available in some centers so that winners can exercise bragging rights.
The Day of the Undead: Rahway Zombie Apocalypse features a sight usually only seen in horror movies?zombie hordes shuffling around the city, searching everywhere for food. During this real-life adventure game at 11 a.m. on November 1, hundreds of participants dressed as zombies follow a series of clues hidden in everyday places around the city to try to uncover a zombie feast. The clues are tricky and must be solved before sundown (5:56 p.m.), and the journey must take place entirely on foot (hopping into cars and onto birds' backs are not allowed).
Not everyone will complete the challenge, but those who do have a chance to win one of three $250 gift cards. Plus, the Rahway Library screens the movies of the dead that day, and later in the evening, Rahway's zombie pub crawl kicks off at Meatballs and Brews.

The entire facility is non-smoking, preserving precious, performance-enhancing air. See here for lane hours.
Partygoers expect a little friendly competition at birthday parties, whether it's to see who can hit the pinata the hardest or who can eat their cake the slowest. FunKart Party Company amps up these games with the roar of tiny engines zipping around a track. After traveling to the party site, staff members set up a 12'x16' raceway with room for up to six remote control cars. Partygoers take control of the cars, which have no slots, so they're free to drive them as intensely as they want, cutting off their opponents, doing donuts at each turn, or driving backwards to see if the miles will come off the tiny odometer. Cars race at scale speeds of up to 200 mph and the raceway can be set up either indoors or out.
