Like racecars, bowling balls are engineered for speed, surviving collisions, and distracting competitors with garish corporate logos. Fight a winning battle with today's Groupon: for $25, you get all-you-can-play bowling for three hours for up to four people at Colonial Lanes (up to a $52 value).
Colonial Lanes houses 32 gleaming 10-pin lanes for sphere-smashing target practice and games of fetch with mechanized ball returns, earning high marks from Orlando CityVoters. Bowlers hoof up in the included rental bowling shoes for as long as hearts desire, making use of an automatic scoring system to keep games honest and free of complex calculus theorems. Kids can ease balls’ precarious journeys with optional bumpers. On Saturday nights, Colonial Lanes' Thunder Alley offers a light-and-sound-filled spectacle to accompany the crack of pins meeting their destiny.
Colonial Lanes' prices vary throughout the week.
