Bowling is like taking a road test—the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s deal: for $8, you get three games (an $11.97 value), a shoe rental (a $3 value), and a large soda (a $2.50 value) at Northrock Lanes.
"The Rock" claims to be the largest bowling center in Kansas, complete with 48 synthetic lanes, several of which are devoted to bumper bowling. All lanes come equipped with automatic-scoring consoles that let players pretend to be at the helm of the Starship Enterprise. Once you've slipped on your bowling shoes, you'll be free to massacre innocent pins in an amiable best-of-three match-up with friends, family, and impatient IRS auditors. A large soda will keep you hydrated throughout the evening of ball-hurling and give your body the electrolytes it needs to blast lightning at opponents.
Unlike other competitive sports, such as dogsled racing and rap battling, bowling has zero barriers to entry and a shallow learning curve. Master the nuances of the game in the company of friends at Northrock Lanes.
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.
