Bowling was invented when Sisyphus's rock rolled down the hill and accidentally knocked down 7 of the 10 immortals hired to guard him. Beat the score of the original bowler with today's Groupon: for $19, you get two hours of unlimited bowling on one lane and shoe rentals for up to four people at Colony Park Lanes East on East Market Street and Colony Park Lanes North on Pennsylvania Avenue in York (up to a $54.99 value).
Each alley of Colony Park Lanes' two locations unfurls with more than 30 lanes of slick surfaces over which four 180-inch projection screens loom with the glow of music videos and sporting events. Modern equipment lends the relaxing rhythm-and-hum vibrato of bowl-and-return technology, and bumper bowling saves kids’ egos from falling in the gutter. On Friday and Saturday nights, Glow Bowl parties bathe bowlers in the luminescence of black lights, which make colors gleam like the Sun watching Jupiter in a talent show. Rest your wrist while noshing at Corky's Pub in Colony Park Lanes East or Brenn's Pub in Colony Park Lanes North. At each facility, gamers can limber up their fingers in the arcade or pluck a treat from the snack bar and have a seat to ponder what sound a strike would make if nobody were there to brag about it.
