Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added two inches of height needed to load your ball into regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin-puncher with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get four games of bowling (up to a $17.40 value) plus two shoe rentals (up to a $6 value) at Buffaloe Lanes. Your Groupon is good for any of four locations—Fayetteville Road in South Raleigh, Oak Forest Drive in North Raleigh, High House Road in Cary, and West Jackson Boulevard in Erwin. Although Buffaloe Lanes offers discounted bowling at select times during the week, your Groupon is valid anytime except after 10:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Families safely get their roll on at Buffaloe Lanes, an alcohol-free, smoke-free bowling center designed for seasoned strikers and amateur youngsters alike. Each of the four locations boasts ample lane space in addition to accompanying arcade areas, which means you'll have two chances to dominate any pompous, tiny-fingered toddlers. After everyone's bowled a nearly imperfect game, feel free to celebrate under the bubbling joy of snack-bar sodas and eats.
An outing at Buffaloe Lanes provides opportunities for athletic growth, familial bonding, and subtle sparking of a friendly rivalry. With bumpers at the ready on all lanes, players of all ages and skill levels can try their three-fingered hand at the sport. If your bowling party has four or more people, feel free to combine two Groupons in one visit, and if your bowling party manages to form a totem pole under a giant trench coat, please, be honest and disassemble.
