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 $6, you get three games of bowling, plus one shoe rental (up to a $13.50 value), at Forward Lanes, located in Squirrel Hill. If this Groupon is redeemed on a Monday or Tuesday night, customers will also get a medium soft drink. Forward Lanes is a retro, 1960s-style pin emporium boasting a bevy of recently updated amenities, including a new scoring system, synthetic bowling lanes, and canopied modern seating. Enjoy streamlined gameplay with an efficient ball return and pin-reset mechanism that's as well oiled as the chest of a cable-news pundit. Between games, saddle up to the snack bar for a recharging sip, or lead a full-scale assault on the vending machine for your favorite snack.
Though Forward Lanes offers discounted bowling pricing during certain times, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
- Forwardlanes [sic] is my home away from home. It's a beautifully maintained local alley. I love the owners. Reasonably priced beer and food. Great selection of house bowling balls, comprised of dozens of donated balls that are much nicer than the average house balls. – erckoger, Citysearch
- Can't beat the price. And the service is great. Went on a weekday afternoon and did not have to wait for a lane at all. Fun times will be shared by everyone! – Kevin H., Yelp
The old and the new come together seamlessly at Forward Lanes. Though the ball returns date back to the 1960s, they send balls back to their bowlers with hardly a squeak or shudder. Modern improvements, such as automatic scoring, allow players to enjoy the game without stopping every frame to call their one friend who still remembers the addition tables. Bowlers can refresh themselves with snacks from the small food menu and vending machine or quench their thirst with available beer, coolers, and soft drinks.
