Bowling is like taking a road test: the only way to win is to knock over more obstacles than everyone else. Cruise to victory with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two games of bowling for one person and one pair of rental shoes at Sunset Lanes Bowling in San Marcos (up to a $11 value). Celebrate a day of family fun and enjoy sweet thunderous music of crashing pins at Sunset Lanes, which has housed competitive boulder-throwers for 52 years. Now liberated from the pencil-tallying age, Sunset has since outfitted its facility with state-of-the-art scoring equipment, automatic ball returns, and grass-fed bowling pins.
Depending on the day, Sunset offers specials that may match or exceed the value of this Groupon.
Sunset Bowling Lanes
Sunset Bowling Lanes opened in 1959 with 24 solid-wood lanes and a stockpile of miniature pencils to keep track of spares and strikes. The alley has since upgraded to computerized scoring systems while also maintaining the charm of classic tenpin entertainment. In addition to its open bowling and league opportunities, Sunset Bowling Lanes hosts events such as college nights—which provide students with discounts so they can save up for books or exam mulligans—and keeps its patrons fueled for the eternal turkey hunt with burgers and drinks from the snack bar.
