We can thank Archduke Leopold Wilhelm, the inventor of bowling, for introducing sayings such as “The pin is mightier than the sword” and “Fortune favors the bowled” into our cultural lexicon. Heed his words of wisdom with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get two hours of unlimited bowling and shoe rentals for up to six people, as well as 30 game tokens (an $84.90 total value), at Playdrome Bowling & Entertainment Center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
Playdrome entertains its guests with 36 pin-toppling lanes. Each lane features automatic scoring, plasma TVs, and comfortable seating, with bumpers available for wayward balls and misguided pin-missiles. On Friday and Saturday nights, Playdrome hosts Future Bowl Laser Light & Sound Show, which bathes the lanes in a laser light show as glow-in-the-dark balls and pins collide to the cadence of a live DJ.
Guests can also hone their ticket-hoarding abilities with several skill and arcade games, as well as skee-ball and air hockey, in Playdrome's video arcade, Game Mania. In addition to assisting bowlers in the fight against upright pins, the clamoring concourse also features a regulation-size billiards table, as well as the Raxx Bar and Grill to reward claustrophobic fingers with a coating of barbecue sauce after a job well done.
