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 deal: For $5, you get two games of open bowling and rental shoes at one of five Rockford-area bowling centers: Don Carter Lanes in Rockford, Park Lanes in Loves Park, Viking Lanes in South Beloit, Forest Hill Lanes in Loves Park, and Cherry Bowl (an $11 value) in Rockford.
People from all areas of bowling expertise can find a niche in one of the Rockford-area lanes, each of which feature clean facilities and a vintage bowling vibe. With this deal, you'll get two games of bowling plus shoe rental, the perfect activity for friends, families, or to settle a dispute between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Among the five locations, you'll find an extensive pro shop, a family-friendly gaming center, and a pub that's slinging beer and deep fried fuel to keep competitive juices flowing. Today's deal is good whenever there's an open lane, but call early for special events like weekend cosmic bowling, when the alleys dim the lights and feature energizing DJ music and trippy lightshows.

Rockford-Area Bowling Centers
Each facility in the family of Rockford-Area Bowling Centers enlivens the classic game of bowling with its own signature amenities. On Friday evenings, the staff at Don Carter Lanes temporarily extinguishes its warm, vintagey glow and replaces it with a dimly lit club atmosphere as DJs from 97 ZOK descend upon the alley, pumping out beats that mingle in the air along with a light and fog show. For supplementary entertainment, the Don Carter location also offers a gaming center, and the Park Lanes alley recharges guests with beer and deep-fried fuel at its onsite pub. The Cherry Bowl location keeps serious bowlers properly outfitted with a pro shop, saving them the hassle of paper-mâchéing their own heads to form makeshift bowling balls.
