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 $18, you get one hour of bowling on one lane and shoe rentals for up to six people at Collins Bowling Center (up to a $43 value) in Eastland and Southland.
The twin alleys of Collins Bowling Center, established more than 50 years ago, stand in unison as a nostalgic institution of pin-felling that entices bowlers with expertly maintained lanes and a family-friendly atmosphere. Before bowling off steam frame by frame, players must first don a pair of bowling shoes that enables the precise footwork necessary to perfectly pitch a regulation 500-pound ball. Bowling sextets then take to the lanes, tossing miniature globes down slick lanes as automated scoring systems keep tally of fallen pins. After engaging in light-hearted competition, bowlers retire to the pro shop, where they can peruse customized bowling equipment or brag to the cashier over the one time they bowled a 301.
Though Collins Bowling Center offers discounted games during certain times of the week, today's deal is the best value for up to six players.
Collins Bowling Centers
Collins Bowling Centers continues a tradition that began more than 50 years ago with spacious lanes primed for open-bowling sessions, league play, and inclusive children's birthday parties. The group maintains two Lexington locations: Eastland Bowling Lanes and Southland Bowling Lanes. Aside from offering pin-blasting action throughout the week, both alleyways encourage guests to sign up for bowling lessons at the pro shop, grab a drink at the lounge, or reunite tokens with their estranged relatives in the onsite arcade.
