Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added 2 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 $5, you get two games of bowling and two pairs of rental shoes for open play at Boardman Lanes on Market Street (a $10.50 value).
Boardman Lanes' slick alleys provide pin busters with a family-friendly space for heaving strikes, spares, and the occasional gutter ball. After trading in street sneakers for a pair of rental clogs, sporting pairs can terrorize innocent bowling pins for 10 consecutive frames with multicolored projectiles and stories about the ghost that lives in the ball return.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, Boardman's digs don phosphorescent duds for a kaleidoscopic round of cosmic bowling, allowing bowlers to experience the flashing lights and colorful environs of a rave without the need for repetitive house music or required vinyl tributes to feudal DJ lords.
With an automatic scoring system and available bumper bowling, Boardman Lanes provides strike-seeking action for tykes and grown-ups alike. Engage in a wholesome alternative to typical family-bonding activities such as betting on Uno or drawing mustaches on napping policemen.
At Boardman Lanes, bowling balls thunder down 24 gleaming, waxed lanes. Automatic pin setters and scoring computers allow customers to focus on their games, with little downtime between throws. On Friday and Saturday nights, black lights cast an otherworldly glow during cosmic bowling. The facility also features video games to provide breaks from bowling action and a snack bar to keep players fueled throughout the day.
