Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two inches of height needed to load your ball into a regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin puncher with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two hours of bowling (up to a $39.98 value) and shoes (a $3.25 value/person) for six people at Bedroxx Bowling (up to a $64.89 total value with tax). Lane rental costs vary throughout the week, so plan ahead to get the best value from your Groupon.
Earning accolades from the Arizona Daily Star and Tucson Weekly, Bedroxx Bowling puts a prehistoric twist on family-friendly activities with 30 retro bowling and handicap accessible lanes, billiards tables, foosball, and an arcade. TV screens hover over lanes with the flickering glow of music videos and sports games while bumpers pen in wayward bowling balls. Lace up alley-appropriate footwear before employing an automatic scoring system to tally strikes, spares, and prehistoric turkeys.
Bedrock-inspired décor transports patrons to cavemen's first bachelor pad, with naturalistic radiance highlighting stony walls. The Leopard Lounge slings suds atop a rocky bar trimmed with flat-screen TVs, and the Snack Shack fills bellies with savory Bedroxx pizza ($3.50+). Guests can also smack spheres on pool tables illuminated by turtle-shell light fixtures or triumph over computerized competitors at the arcade.
At Bedroxx Bowling, stone columns and prehistoric cave-like structures carry the weight of the Flintstones-esque theme, while 30 state-of-the-art bowling lanes and a veritable maze of amusements balance the decor with modern entertainment amenities. Inside the 44,000-square-foot entertainment center—which won Tucson Weekly's Readers Pick award for Best Bowling Alley in 2010–2011—every corner teems with activity. Bowlers pummel pins and avoid bumpers like an elitist avoids the common cold during 10-frame competitions. Overhead screens flare up with music videos, video games flash and beep in the video arcade room. Winners at the Toy Box game center can redeem their hard-earned tickets for a host of prizes and then celebrate with nachos, hot dogs, and Bedroxx pizza at the snack shack.
