Toppling a bowling pin releases aggression that might have otherwise been directed toward an innocent Jenga tower or a bystander with poor balance. Knock down pompous pins with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one hour of family bowling for up to six people, with shoe rentals included (up to a $29.95 total value), at North Bowl Lanes in North Attleboro.
North Bowl Lanes sets up 40 synthetic lanes and large projection screens amid brightly colored walls and lounge seating. Families, friends, and strangers who bonded after being trapped in an elevator together can don pairs of bowling shoes and hand-select an orb as light as 6 pounds to toss toward its pin-toppling destiny. Computerized scoring ensures accuracy and deters corruption, and automatic bumpers prevent bowling balls from rolling into pedestrians. Between frames, players can gaze at large projection screens hanging over the bowling alley while reclining on lounge seating and looking over their team's playbook. Although not included with this Groupon, the on-site grill dishes up burgers ($6.95+) and brick-oven-pizza slices ($2.00+) for midframe refueling. For added entertainment, North Bowl Lanes frequently hosts weekly events including live music, karaoke, and fundraising events.
North Bowl Lanes
North Bowl Lanes welcomes gamers of all ages daily to enjoy 40 lanes of ten-pin bowling and 35 arcade games with a prize center. Like the timeless Cinderella story, the alley keeps its doors open until midnight Monday through Thursday, whereupon the bowling balls turn back into pumpkins and players must return their rental shoes. At The All Star Pub Grill, chefs serve up hand-tossed pizzas and burgers, and bartenders tap a rotating selection of twelve beers and mix a full spectrum of specialty cocktails.
