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 $25, you get one bowling lane for one hour and shoe rentals for up to six people at Century Bowling (up to a $50 value).
Anchored in the Calgary Century Casino, this concourse hosts 10- and 5-pin bowling in a fully renovated facility. After furnishing their soles in colourful rental kicks, seasoned and amateur duckpinners can launch their perforated weapons while electronic scoring systems keep tally to prevent leader board miscalculations and illegible trash talk. In addition to accommodating the six-pack with its own private seating area, Century Bowling also outfits many of its gutters with automatic bumpers to help usher errant orbs to their wooden pack of prey. During cosmic black-light bowling, players can hunt strikes to the tune of a funky soundtrack while alleys framed in fluorescent lights guide overhead party jets to a smooth landing. The super centre nourishes its peg hunters with pizza and hot dogs (not included with this Groupon) from an on-site kiosk that also compensates team mascots with draft beers and highballs.
Century Bowling offers other bowling specials throughout the week; plan ahead to ensure you are redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
To a soundtrack of upbeat music, players at Century Bowling take aim at pins under standard lighting or the glow of black lights. Computerized scoring flashes across above-lane screens, and automatic bumpers help newer players keep their balls on course without installing thumbhole GPS systems. From their lanes’ seating area, players can snack on pizza, hot dogs, and appetizers between turns or sip on draft and bottled beers or mixed drinks.
