Bowling shoes aren’t just fashionable—they provide the added 2 inches of height needed to load your ball into a regulation-size trebuchet. Lace up and reach for a three-holed pin puncher with today’s Groupon for bowling at Val Lanes Recreation Center in West Des Moines. Shoe rental is not included with this Groupon. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get five rounds of bowling (up to a $24.50 value).
- For $24, you get 10 rounds of bowling (up to a $49 value).
Val Lanes Recreation Center has been in business for more than 50 years, and its knowledgeable staff draws upon a wealth of knowledge and history while overseeing the alley's 36 lanes. Automatic scoring tracks bowlers' progress and ability to silence pins singing 10-part show-tune harmonies during daily open-bowling hours. Automated bumpers buffer gutters against sore egos and upset youngsters, and upbeat rock music serves as a sonic backdrop to the jovial thunder of scattering pins.
Glow-bowling sessions on Fridays and Saturdays cast black lights across patrons in the darkened alley, make pins easier to target, and add drama to spectacular strikes. Though pro-shop services are not included in this Groupon, bowlers may peruse the pro shop's walls of shiny globes or bring in their own orbs for resurfacing, custom fitting, or obedience training.
