Underhand bowling techniques add spin to the ball, increase control, and keep the game from becoming a round of indoor shot put. Don't dent the walls with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a bowling package for up to six at Country Club Lanes, which includes:
- 1.5 hours of bowling for up to six people
- Six shoe rentals
- A $10 food voucher
- $15 toward the prize arcade
- A teddy bear
Bowlers have gleefully lobbed their gleaming three-holed orbs at Country Club Lanes’ 48 sets of pins for more than 50 years. With today’s deal, up to six friends or family members can don six included sets of shoes before taking to the lanes to settle long-standing game-night Parcheesi beefs once and for all. An automatic bumper system can level the playing field among combatants with different skill levels, and 13 plasma TVs inform midgame players about current sports happenings and upcoming clown-shoe sales. As the moon shines down from its perch in the evening sky, the lanes, too, light up with an unearthly glow for glo-bowl, a nightly engagement in which players bask in UV light while swaying to DJ-spun music.
After the game, hungry sextets can redeem their food voucher for nachos, sodas, and sandwiches at the snack bar or feed their included teddy bear a pot of imaginary honey. Then, shoot $15 worth of basket- or skee-balls in the prize arcade, whose ticket-dispensing diversions culminate in the selection of a prize from a trophy wall stocked with plush toys and electric thumb warmers.
Country Club Lanes
Among the 48 professional bowling lanes, two video arcades, two billiard rooms, and a futuristic laser-tag arena, Country Club Lanes’ activities run the gamut of fun, social diversions for families or friends. While maintaining its retro appeal with neon lights and colorful carpets, the alley updates its lanes with additions such as automatic bumpers and a gallery of plasma TVs. Open bowling hours run 24 hours a day with a kitchen open until 1 a.m., allowing guests to fix their late-night bowling cravings and finally escape Freddy Krueger by trapping his claws in a ball’s tiny holes.
