The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: windup, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon to ibowl.ca Family Fun Center in Cambridge. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get $25 worth of cosmic bowling and mini golf.
• For $165, you get a one-hour rental of the entire bowling alley, which includes use of the mini-golf course, a pool table, and the jukebox (a $339 value, including HST).
Nestled within the walls of a former shoe factory, ibowl.ca Family Fun Center unrolls 7,000 square feet of smile-inducing recreation, from bowling and mini golf to an arcade. Amid the glow of cosmic bowling, ball slingers hurl volcanic-glass spheres down eight gleaming lanes and aim toward 5- or 10-pin sets (up to a $4.87 value for students/seniors; $7.30/game, including shoes, plus HST). An automated scoring system tracks every strike, spare, or gutter-ball, and optional lane bumpers keep balls in and invading Visigoths out. Sporting an around-the-world theme, the nine-hole mini-golf course challenges putters' resolve against obstacles such as igloos, Indian palaces, and an invisible flamingo colony (up to $3.32/round for students/seniors; $4.42/round for adults, plus HST).
One-hour alley rentals let buyers host up to 56 people and include unlimited play on all eight lanes, shoe rental for each bowler, access to the mini-golf course and the pool table, and use of the jukebox. Hosts can order off the catering menu (up to $9.50/person, plus HST), and can make a magnanimous gesture toward friends or a peace offering toward offended bowling pins.
ibowl Family Fun Center
The rattle of scattered bowling pins echoes throughout the 7,000-square-foot ibowl Family Fun Center, a former shoe factory that has been repurposed for bowling, miniature golf, and other games. Inspired by an around-the-world theme, the nine-hole miniature-golf course takes putters globetrotting around igloos and pint-sized models of the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower populated with Lilliputian tourists complaining about jet lag. Bowling balls barrel toward sets of 5 or 10 pins at the centre's bowling lanes, which boast automatic scoring and optional bumpers. The mini-game emporium also features air hockey, foosball, and pool tables, allowing competitors to prove who has the superior hand-eye coordination without entering juggling competitions with a meat cleaver.
