Bowling was invented in Ancient Greece to settle the dispute over whether the Parthenon's columns could withstand the force of a rolling snowball. Test the laws of physics with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three games of bowling (up to a $9.15 value/person) and shoe rental (a $2 value/person) for up to five players at Bowlarama (up to a $55.75 total value). This deal is valid at all three Halifax–area locations on Desmond Avenue, Dentith Road, and in Dartmouth. Children 15 and under can bowl two games for free at the Desmond Avenue location until August 31.
Bowlarama welcomes rollers of all ages to challenge each other in matches of traditional 10-pin bowling. Once fitted into rental shoes, groups of up to five players suppress pin rebellions on one of 18–24 lanes. Players aim their sights down narrow, hardwood fairways at murals depicting neon bowling balls and the Norse god of strikes. Keep eyes active on overhanging flat screen TVs or hands focused in matches of pool, air hockey, and video games (amenities vary depending on location). In addition to food and bar services, each Bowlarama hosts cosmic bowling events.
