Like clowns who craft balloon animals, bowlers partake in a family-friendly activity that hones coordination and requires quirky footwear. Trade poppable giraffes for pins with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get three games of bowling and shoe rental at Paladium Bowl in Alice (up to an $11.95 value).
Paladium Bowl pairs eager ball hurlers of all ages with one of 16 lanes equipped with high-tech bowling accouterments. Automatic pinsetters save players the time it would take for pins to reorganize themselves, while nearly sentient Steltronic score-keeping systems render writing utensils obsolete. After donning stylish bowling shoes and participating in 30 frames' worth of pin devastation, guests can browse equipment, shoes, bowling bags, and balls at the full-service pro shop, or condition their reflexes, like Pavlov's dogs, with Paladium’s video games. Conquer hunger pangs at the snack bar, which showcases a trove of homestyle rations, including homemade chili prepared on the premises, as well as liquid refreshments ranging from sodas to wine coolers (this Groupon is not valid for food, drink, or merchandise).
