If life is just a bowl of cherries, then bowling is a life of launching 12-pound cherry-flavored gumballs. Experience life's sweetest pastime with today's Groupon: for $18, you get two hours of bowling ($13 per hour), shoe rental for up to five people ($2 per person), and one pitcher of beer or soda ($8 for beer, $6 for soda) at Mallwitz's Island Lanes, located in the heart of Grand Island (up to a $44 value).
Family-friendly vibes pulse like cosmic strobes within the walls of Mallwitz's Island Lanes, a locally owned and operated bowling alley that's been facilitating old-fashioned fun since 1980. Spend a good chunk of your day or night taunting your friends and taking out frustrations on a group of hapless pinheads. Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battles, bowling has zero barriers to entry and a shallow learning curve. In addition to the entertainment that spans the 24 action-packed lanes, Mallwitz's houses a full bar and restaurant to keep players energized and players' fingers full enough to fit the ball holes. Quench your thirst with the pitcher of cold beer or soda that's included in this Groupon, or spring for a round of the alley's acclaimed chicken wings for a spicy break to your sport.
Must be 21 years or older to redeem for beer.
Mallwitz's Island Lanes
A vintage photo of Mallwitz’s Island Lanes, presumably from the 1980s, shows a much different alley than the one that stands today. Its patrons are dressed and coiffed for the times, bright yellows and reds flash across the walls, and strikes and spares are scrawled by hand. A modern-day snapshot illustrates the transformation that has occurred since the center's 1980 opening: 24 lanes feature computerized scoring systems and freshly oiled surfaces that glisten in the muted glow of black lights like a newborn’s head after his first waxing. Other contemporary touches include a full bar, complete with a food menu headlined by popular wings.
