The three holes on a bowling ball represent the three phases of bowling: wind-up, release, and genuflection. Send a ball properly on its way with today's Groupon: for $15, you get six games of bowling plus two pairs of rental shoes at Royal Pin (up to a $30.30 value). Customers can use this Groupon to allow one player to play six games, or two players to play three games each. This Groupon is valid at all four Royal Pin locations: Expo, Southern, Western, and Woodland. Although this Groupon can be redeemed during cosmic-bowling hours, it does not entitle the players to unlimited bowling.
Royal Pin furnishes its alley kingdom with fast, synthetic bowling lanes, modern scoring systems, and snacks. Hurl a tri-holed sphere down the waxy way of Royal Pin's smooth, slick lanes and hold steady for celebratory fist pumping. When the last pin falls, strut back to the Brunswick automatic-scoring table for a pin-toppling high-five that will echo throughout the alley. Royal Pin's cosmic bowling rolls out a glow-in-the-dark party atmosphere in which families discuss prism theory, lovers slow-dance under stenciled stars, and Martians cry woefully for their home planet.
Royal Pin’s lanes provide bowlers of all skill levels and shoe sizes the chance to feel comfortably competitive or vigorously relaxed. Parents and children can take deeply focused breaths before each approach, as all four Royal Pin alleys are smoke free, except for bar areas at the Expo, Western, and Woodland locations. It's recommended that users reserve a lane online, but walk-in customers can pass the time waiting by indulging in a variety of extrabowlicular activities—not included in today's Groupon—such as lounges for lounging, pro shops for shopping, pool tables for mastering non-Euclidean geometry, and snack bars.
Royal Pin offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Royal Pin’s four bowling centers boast a total of 270 gleaming lanes, but their widely varied facilities offer far more than games of tenpins. At all four locations, cosmic-bowling nights create a psychedelic atmosphere with fog, music, and black lights.
The Woodland location, though, was voted Best Bowling in Indianapolis 2012 by CityVoter and ups the ante with flat screens above the lanes and cushy couches where players recline while waiting their turn to take a ride through the pinsetter. Its adjacent outdoor mini-golf course, Pirate's Quest Mini Golf, sends putters on a salty adventure with 18 Lilliputian fairways populated by streams, waterfalls, and a pirate ship. In addition, the location recently received a makeover, with a new midway, lounge, bar and restaurant. In that same center, there's also the two-story Pirate's Quest laser tag, which combines the excitement of laser tag and swashbuckling.
At the Expo location, the theme relates to another exciting frontier: space. In Laser Storm tag, players battle for rights to moon territories. Besides their alleys, Royal Pin also manages the 5-acre Greatimes Family Fun Park, where kids zip around a go-cart track, bounce through a multilevel playland, or pilot bumper boats equipped with blaster squirt guns and highly sensitive grownup detectors.
