The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a bowling package for five at Franklin Lanes (up to a $79.15 total value). The package includes:
- Three games of bowling for five (up to a $56.25 value)
- Five shoe rentals (a $13.75 value)
- Five medium soft drinks (a $9.15 value)
Operated since 1942, Franklin Lanes' modern incarnation sports Brunswick pro lanes that tempt rock-rollers of all skill levels. Twenty lengths of polished wood welcome rollicking groups, as bowlers send spheres on trips through pin formations or past the stationary bikes that power the ball return. On weekends, Franklin Lanes goes phosphorescent, as neon-splattered cosmic lights cast a rave-light glow on games and gamers. Shoe rentals ensure that feet remain stylish and floor surfaces remain unscathed, and optional bumper lanes prevent untimely ball demises. Weary bowlers cool off with quaffs of medium soft drinks between rolls, lubricating palates for celebratory yelps or philosophical epithets about parental origins.
Franklin Bowling Lanes
Bright-colored balls have sent pins crashing at Franklin Bowling Lanes for years. Since then, the bowling center has seen several upgrades, including 20 Brunswick Pro Lanes, which replaced the originals. Optional bumpers pop into action to help young bowlers or adults who learned physics from Wile E. Coyote’s correspondence school.
