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 $25, you get two hours of bowling and shoes for up to six people at Concord Lanes (a $50 value). Concord Lanes, nestled in the jowls of the nine-acre Family Fun Center, unites 32 lanes to create a brightly lit bowling epicenter. Adjacent to the alley is the Coyote Canyon Saloon and Café, where low-energy bowlers can refuel with pizza, burgers, and draft beers, or take a break with a game of pool or Name That Presidential Accountant.
Although there are not many online reviews available for Concord Lanes, three Yelpers give it a four-star average:
At this 9-acre family fun center, orb-tossers young and old drive spheres down 32 glossy lanes, and miniature-golf enthusiasts putt their way around a desert-themed 18-hole course. Tepees, outcroppings, and an active waterfall cover the pint-size fairways and greens, creating a unique layout that was named Best Miniature Golf in 2011 by the Riverfront Times.
Nearby, nine batting cages hurl baseballs and softballs at varying speeds, and three sand volleyball courts await bouts of friendly competition. Overlooking the sandy courts, an outdoor deck invites guests to lounge in the sun with casual fare from the cafe. The indoor section pumps jukebox tunes as pool balls sink into the pockets of the billiards table or a passing kleptomaniac.
