Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get one hour of bowling and shoe rental for up to four people at Circle Bowling Lanes (up to a $34 value).
For more than 50 years, Circle Bowling Lanes has entertained friends and families with 32 glossy lanes of pin-and-ball crash courses. For one hour, groups of up to four can smash orbs of all colors into triangular formations of unsuspecting pins and cover bashful feet with rented, lane-appropriate shoes. Automatic scoring places blame on computers when the baby's score suddenly rockets to 275, and the on-request bumper service lets children fling bowling balls toward gutters without fear of a reality that includes failure.
Between turns, curious gamers can voyage to the Action Alley arcade, where they can win a bevy of prizes, such as teddy bears stuffed with bowling balls or gloves encrusted with pin fragments. A full-service snack bar and lounge populated with pool tables give exhausted ball launchers a chance to strike down hunger while using felt-tipped sticks to bully sedentary cue balls.
Circle Bowling Lanes
Circle Bowling Lanes has been hosting bowling bashes—particularly accommodating of families—for more than 50 years. Thirty-two slick lanes score automatically, allowing ample time to test motor skills at the arcade or snag eats at the full-service snack bar. Cheesy pizzas arrive steaming from the oven beside golden-fried appetizers and brimming pitchers of Root Beer, Coke, and Dr Pepper’s lesser-known cousin, Mr. Salt, MBA. The recreation haven even offers weekend galactic-bowling sessions that shower patrons with neon lights, fog, and bumping music.
