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 $10, you get $20 worth of bowling, beer, and snack bar fare at Lunar Bowl in Blue Springs.
Lunar Bowl hosts pin-toppling sessions on 32 lanes that sport Brunswick synthetics, touch automated scoring systems, and electronic bumper settings to help those with gutter-diving balls compete in the big leagues. After strapping themselves into a pair of stock bowling shoes ($3 for adults, $2 for kids 12 and younger), players slide spheres across a slick hardwood battleground during a match ($4–$5 per game per person), racking up points that can later be redeemed for a sixth sense. Every Friday and Saturday night, Lunar Bowl undergoes a stellar makeover with cosmic bowling ($18 or $20 a session/person, $2.25 for shoe rental), a late-night bowling extravaganza rife with lights. The alley's in-house bar, The Blue Moon, stuffs empty stomachs with a cornucopia of snackables such as a cheeseburger ($3.75) or 12 chicken wings ($9), and more than 20 different beers help tongues stay properly moisturized.
Lunar Bowl casts a nebular net across rounds of pin punishment, which unravel daily across 32 bowling lanes. The non-smoking, the 38,000-square-foot facility has played host to the PBA National Tour twice, including the tour's nationally televised finals and nontelevised slip 'n' slide experiments in the 11th frame. The center's celestial theme soars over into The Blue Moon Lounge, where bowlers can take a break from strikes and spares to watch big games or create deep-space shadow puppets on a 150-inch HD projector screen. Lunar Bowl drifts further into intergalactic realms with laser-lit cosmic bowling and a newly built arcade buzzing with the chimes of new high scores.
