If life is just a bowl of cherries, then bowling is a life of launching 12-pound cherry-flavored gum balls. Experience life's sweetest pastime with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of bowling and snack bar fare at Northrock Lanes.
As Kansas’ largest bowling center, Northrock Lanes thrills pin-pummelers with 48 automatically scoring lanes, including several suited for bumper bowling, and a conglomeration of snack-bar fare. Celebrate National Bowling Week by grabbing five friends or a traditional oompah quintet for a game ($3.99). Slip on pairs of two-tone bowling shoes ($3) before selecting an orb light enough to heave granny-style at unsuspecting gutters. After constructing an architecturally unsound bowling-ball pyramid, weary athletes can fuel up with a plate of nachos ($2.75), a Texas corn dog ($3.50), or a large fountain drink ($2.50).
A sprawling row of 48 bowling lanes sets the stage for friendly competition at Northrock Lanes. As automatic scoring keeps track of spares and strikes, bumpers keep balls and falling leaves from clogging the gutters. Meanwhile, the kitchen serves up snacks such as burgers, chicken, and pizza, and a pro shop helmed by a former collegiate bowler and current Newman University coach keeps players stocked with the latest equipment.
