The three-holed bowling ball’s perpetually surprised expression comes from the adrenaline rush as it speeds toward pins, followed by unexpected plot twists in books read during its journey back to bowlers. Surprise yourself with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get three games of bowling, shoe rental, hot dogs, and sodas for two at Rose Bowl (up to a $36.50 value).
Rose Bowl is an epicenter of thunderous bowling, with smooth, waxed lanes leading to a cacophony of tumbled pins and victorious bowling balls. Grab a friend or pitching simulator and embark upon a tri-part quest to send bowling pins shrieking into the wings while walking in rental shoes (a $6 value) for sudden empathetic insights. Three games (up to a $22.50 value) offer enough time for a mini tournament, kept infallibly up to date by computerized scoring equipment and an atomic clock on the roof. Players can slake their voracious appetites with two juicy hot dogs (a $5 value), cold sodas (a $3 value), and a celebratory chicken dance to lord over vanquished foes. For an additional charge, players ages 21 and older can try their chances at the Oregon Lottery in the sports lounge.
Though Rose Bowl sometimes offers specials on bowling, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
PinbusterZ Family Fun Center
No matter if you're a serious league player or a kid learning how to bowl, PinbustterZ Family Fun Center has a lane that suits your needs. That's because the alley features 16 full-scale lanes where adults can refine their aim and curve-ball throwing, while the nearby cosmic alley keeps kids occupied. These glow-in-the-dark lanes are shortened so that growing arms can send balls whirring all the way to the pins without the hinderance of gutters or sand traps. In the nearby arcade, kids can further develop hand-eye coordination as they toss balls into skee balls machines, try their skills at Frogger, or braid their tickets into a friendship shirt.
