Bowling alleys provide comforting, lively atmospheres for families, groups of friends, and those nurtured into adulthood by thunder. Strike a thunderclap and mark it 10 with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two hours of bowling and shoe rentals for up to five people from Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey (up to a $75 value).

Operating under the umbrella of the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America, a national nonprofit organization, the Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey aggregates clean, family-friendly alleys for pin-crushing action. Five friends or one unbalanced foursquare team can infiltrate one of eight bowling alleys, where they will be fitted for shoes and directed toward an oil-slick alley. The 42 pin-crowned aisles at Jersey Lanes intersperse smooth synthetic rolling surfaces with kid-friendly automatic bumpers, and Majestic Lanes' advanced Art QubicaAMF scoring keeps competition fair and free from the hazards of miniature pencils and mathematic conundrums. Weary wrist flingers can refuel with lunch from Garwood Lanes' lunch menu, or grab a bite and a drink at Jersey Lanes' snack bar and cocktail lounge (though food is not included in this Groupon). With five bowlers, two hours is approximately enough time for two full games and an infinite number of high-fives.
Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey
Under the umbrella of The Bowling Proprietors' Association of North Jersey, an eclectic group of alleys work together to fill the region with the thunder of scattering pins. At most of Bowling Proprietors' bowling centers, bowlers keep track of pummeled pins with automatic scoring, and bumpers, which arrive at the call of a button, keep balls on course without filling the gutters with retired VCRs. Snack bars at some locations bolster ravenous bowlers, and game rooms in select centers keep hand-eye coordination in peak condition. Free WiFi is available in some centers so that winners can exercise bragging rights.
