Bowling-alley lanes are covered in a thin layer of oil, facilitating a smooth trip for the ball and hilarious pratfalls for would-be pin burglars. Engage in slippery sport with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a bowling outing for up to five people at Center Bowl (up to a $41.25 total value). The package includes:
- One hour of bowling for up to five people (up to a $20 value)
- Up to five pairs of bowling shoes with socks (a $4.25 value/person)
This Groupon is valid during all open bowling times.
Center Bowl beguiles bowlers with 30 lanes, themed pin-toppling events, and more than 50 years of strike-slinging history. Highly polished lanes pander to snazzily shoed patrons with automatic touch-screen scoring systems that effortlessly tally triumphant strikes and intercept top-secret messages from pin insurgents. Beginning bowlers ease into the art of the two-fingered, one-thumb ball toss with lane bumpers, which direct orbs toward expectant pins by covering misdirecting gutters. A midlane stage beckons balladeers during karaoke bowling on Wednesday evenings, which encourages guests to try hands at cadenced crooning in exchange for a free game pass. Thursday night carnival bowling bestows prizes upon bowlers who depose colored pins, and a semiweekly Thunder Alley light show permeates lanes with neon light, fog, and lucky, three-holed balls on Friday and Saturday evenings. An assembly of 16 flat-screen televisions display music videos above the lanes, entertaining waiting bowlers and inspiring poststrike victory-dance choreography.
Center Bowl’s rates fluctuate throughout the week, so plan ahead to ensure you get the best value from your Groupon.
While Center Bowl’s neon marquee has retained its vintage look for over 50 years, the bowling alley's modern innards include 30 updated Brunswick synthetic lanes with touchscreen scoring and automated gutter guards. The lights go dim on weekend nights for neon-bowling sessions, during which bowling balls and toothpaste stains glow in the dark. Between frames, bowlers can refuel at the concessions stand, which doles out pizza, wings, soft drinks, and beer.
