In bowling, the perfect strike requires a careful calculation of force, spin, and positioning—but Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond injects fun into the physics lesson with 24 gleaming lanes ready to take whatever you can throw at them, provided you've donned the proper fluorescent footwear (each rented shoe half-red, half-green).
Healthy competition and the joy of yelling 'strike!' are pretty entertaining all on their own, but Zodo's doesn't stop there—Glow Bowling's atmospheric touches include black lights, a live DJ, and fog. Twice-daily happy hours and 40 on-tap beers keep spirits high, and a menu of gourmet pizza, fresh salads, burgers, and more creative fare provide more sustenance than a feast of felled pins.
The sound of crashing pins draws equally loud cheers from players at Ventura Bowling Center as their progress is tallied via an automatic scoring system. Arcade games and dartboards entice them to take a break from alleyways, while hunger draws them toward the snack bar. Meanwhile, a full onsite bar supplies players with enough bubbly soda and ice-cold beer to celebrate a big win or an impressive moonwalk made possible by a pair of smooth-soled bowling shoes.
Duckpin-hunting season opens in festive fashion at Harley’s Camarillo Bowl, where two party packages outfit pintsized players with up to two hours of bowling and a litany of celebration essentials. The Extravaganza package offers up 90 minutes of pin-pummeling merriment on the bumper-optional lanes as well as access to the party room for one hour; the Atomic package dims the lights and cranks up the music for two full hours of bass-driven bowling amid black lights, glowing pins, and a complete absence of gravity. Both options include stylish tri-toned alley kicks and arcade tokens for all party-goers, along with lightweight balls that can be thrown with ease by the tiniest of hands or the strongest of feet. A complete party setup puts taste buds on the guest list with plates of cheese or pepperoni pizza and bottomless fountains of soda, fruit punch, and pink lemonade.
The clatter of toppling pins resounds through the walls of the 89 locations of Bowling Centers of Southern California, which are scattered across Southern California, Nevada, and Hawaii. Each alley abounds with modern lanes and equipment, and many boast concession stands, lounges, and game rooms. The family-friendly centers host regular public bowling sessions and league tournaments. Many of the centers also host private birthday parties, which science has proven to be more fun than birthday parties covered by the paparazzi.
