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 Groupon: for $20, you get two hours of bowling, shoes, pizza, and a pitcher of soda for up to four people ($40 value) at Tippy Bowl in Ballston Spa.
Tippy Bowl, named The Saratogian's "Best of Bowling" in 2009, boasts brightly colored walls, 14 classic lanes, a fully-stocked snack bar, and opportunities for families and friends to come together to strap on a pair of fashionable shoes. Up to four bowling bipeds can enjoy two hours of ball heaving, pizza munching, soda slurping, and repeated attempts to trick stoic bowling pins into smiling and losing their jobs. After unplugging thumbs, head over to Tippy Bowl's newly renovated snack bar for a treat, or unwind in the lounge, replete with Direct TV sports channels and freedom from taunting 7–10 splits.
Tippy Bowl appreciates the value of education and supports local schools, offering several student-focused programs, including free bowling passes for perfect attendance, reading improvement, and best-constructed papier-mâché replica of a horse.
