After Neil Armstrong discovered space, he quickly moved on to other, more impressive feats, including his invention of zero-gravity golf and regular-gravity flag-raising. Tip your solar shield to ol' Neil with today's deal: for $25, you get two hours of cosmic bowling plus rental shoes for up to six people at Rab's Country Lanes in Staten Island (up to an $82 value). This Groupon is redeemable during any cosmic bowling hours, which are Friday and Saturday nights from 12:30 a.m. to 3 a.m., and during occasional other times throughout the week (call the bowling center to inquire about additional cosmic bowling sessions).
Listed as one of Bowlers Journal International's "95 Centers You Must Visit Before You Die," Rab's Country Lanes takes the spectacle of bowling to the next logical plateau: outer space. During two light-laden hours of cosmic bowling, rolling crews can strike, spare, and slam-dance their way through frame after frame of audio-assisted action. As the on-screen music videos melt the alley atmosphere into night-club harmony, friends can forgo their perfect game aspirations, opting instead to soak in the sensationalized pick-ups and signature celebration moves of all involved bowlers.
Before, during, or after the lane-lounging, guests can partake in other on-site activities such as pool, darts, and karaoke, among others. Because the lanes are open until the clocks strike wee, the two-hour cosmic session could prove to be a prime option for a triple-date after-party, pre-breakfast bash, or a timely wake-up call for all the Count Choculas in town.
Must redeem in one visit.

Rab's Country Lanes seems to stretch endlessly into the horizon, housing 48 lanes, each with touchscreen computers and 42-inch LCD monitors hanging overhead. Late night cosmic bowling adds dazzling fluorescence to the alleyscape, and automatic bumpers keep the game fair for children and people who just stepped off rollercoasters. In the laser maze, aspiring spies can slither through a web of lasers, attempting to clear the course without tripping the alarm. Gennaro's snack bar refuels indoor athletes with pizza, burgers, and coffee.
