Set your strike ball loose on any of the 32 spacious lanes at Crazy Pinz, all of which are surrounded by a mass quantity of flat-screens and projection screens. As you catch a sports game on the surrounding videoscape, track your real-life championship with the center's state-of-the-art scoring system. Though not included in the Groupon, if hunger and thirst start splitting your stomach, pick up some spare eats at Coconutz, a full-service eatery on site, or squelch desires for deliciousness at the Snack Shack, a stop-'n'-go destination dedicated to fueling today's unsung American heroes—children.

Competitors and friends converge to fill their spare time with strikes and high-fives, and to scatter pins atop Georgetown Bowl's 40 lanes. Automatic-scoring systems track points as bowlers chase the elusive 300-point gutter ball seven days a week—including on Beer Bash Friday, when all-you-can drink drafts supplement two hours of unlimited bowling. Inside the Sports Gallery Lounge, four big-screen TVs broadcast both professional and college games, and at the snack bar, bites of wings, wraps, and pizza help players refuel between frames. Beyond the lanes and video arcade, the full-service pro shop's industry veteran, Trace Chamberlin, helps upgrade equipment by re-drilling holes to fit their owners' fingers or rolled-up treasure maps pointing to the center pin.

Interstate Lanes complements its 40 bowling lanes with several classic avenues of entertainment, from the video arcade's flashing lights to the lounge equipped with billiard tables. As bowlers attempt to topple sets of pins, automatic scoring systems keep track of their feats, and bumpers prevent balls from triggering gutters' traumatic memories of serving in a giant mousetrap. Beyond open-bowling hours, the alley hosts competitive leagues for men, women, and children, and an onsite kitchen fires up bites such as chicken wings, specialty burgers, and freshly baked pizzas.

Lido Lanes is a family-friendly bowling center offering a safe, clean environment for bowlers of all ages and skill levels. Each of the 16 waxen alleys sports a seating area, slimming lighting for weight-conscious bowling balls, and an automatic scoring system that spares bowlers the hassle of learning the game's complex scoring algorithms and theorems (such as Fermat's Last Frame). Along with stylish shoes, the spoils of your tribe's lane domination treat you to one tantalizing appetizer from Lido Lanes' bar and grill. Onion rings (a $3.40 value) provide circular sustenance, and deluxe nachos (a $4.90 value) roll in on spinning rims to satisfy the barbarian hunger generated by your three brawny ball battles. To accompany its guttural symphony of shattered strikes and exploding turkeys, Lido Lanes invites live bands, such as Chicago blues bands, country signers, and Irish bands, to rock out on the lanes during Rock N Bowl night.

Bowlero Lanes opened its doors in 1958. Since then, thanks to a few renovations, the bowling alley is still going strong. In addition to 32 bowling lanes, the alley has an arcade, pool tables, and a full-service bar and lounge that recently received new flatscreen TVs. The array of activities makes Bowlero Lanes a popular destination for events such as birthday parties, fundraisers, and fantasy bowling drafts.
