Bowling is a model for interpersonal relationships—the ball is your scream and the pins are other people’s opinions. Make a striking statement with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a bowling night for six people at Sunshine Bowling Lanes (up to a $71 total value), including:
- Two hours of bowling (up to a $12 value/hour)
- Six bowling-shoe rentals (up to a $3.50 value per person)
- Six sodas (a $3 value each)
- One large basket of popcorn (an $8 value)
Seated at the end of one of Sunshine Bowling Lanes’ 32 gleaming avenues, six bowlers can snack on popcorn and prepare their rolling arms for a two-hour bowling spree. As the pin-smashing action unfolds, automated-scorekeeping computers take care of the math, displaying scores, ball speed, and excitement-enhancing graphics so bowling buddies can focus on unleashing their speediest throws and most melodic songs about bowling shoes. Popcorn and sodas keep energy levels up as the bowling becomes faster and furiouser, while giant projectors keep the atmosphere energized with music videos. Lanes come in a variety of family-friendly configurations, with standard bumper-free alleys for confident players, and lanes with a gentle pinwards slope, ideal for kids who got stuck with the square ball. Prices fluctuate throughout the week, so be sure to check Sunshine’s schedule to determine when redeeming a Groupon nets the best value.
