Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s deal: for $5, you get two games of bowling and one pair of rental shoes at Anchor Lanes (up to a $12 value). Anchor Lanes was recently voted the best bowling lanes in Columbia by the Free Times. This deal is not valid for bowling on Friday and Saturday after 10:00 p.m., which is reserved exclusively for werewolf league play.

Anchor Lanes maintains 40 polished lanes to allow for unfettered pin pummeling and projectile-heaving recreation. All lanes feature automatic scoring, so contestants will waste less time mastering the complex algorithms and theorems of bowling scores (such as Fermat's Last Frame) and instead waste more time devising mildly offensive pseudonyms to display on the scoreboard. For more than 20 years, this smoke-free bowling alley has been the consistent cure for family- or friend-fueled boredom. Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battling, bowling has zero barriers to entry and a shallow earning curve, so bring along buddies of any age or skill level and gift them with their own Groupons to Anchor Lanes.

Reviews

The Free Times named Anchor Lanes Best Bowling Lanes in Columbia in 2009, and it was voted runner-up in 2010. Six Yahoo! Locals give the alley an average of four stars:

  • We love this place!!! Great atmosphere, helpful staff, and Hal in the pro shop is very knowledgable [sic] and helpful. – red
  • We enjoy coming here, and being new to bowling, we have found the staff quite helpful. – LB

Anchor Lanes

Anchor Lanes houses a scintillating slate of activities that pleases laid-back guests and diehard competitors alike. In addition to bowling with traditional or bumper lanes, the alley fosters a festive atmosphere with its children's-birthday-party packages, which include food, bowling, decorations, entertainment, and cleanup. During Anchor Lanes's Rock-N-Glow, the lights fade, the music revs up, and lasers cut through dense patches of fog like the headlights of a runaway roller-coaster car. When the lanes aren't illuminated in the cool blue hue of black light, dedicated bowlers of any age can hone and flaunt their skills during league play.
