2017 Kids Bowl Free (or Discounted) Summer Programs


Bowling is one of our favorite activities and summer is a great time to get in a lot of bowling!  Be sure to take advantage of one of these offers for free or discounted bowling this summer.

Save even more on your kids bowl free when you don’t have to rent shoes!  Search Ebay for bowling shoes and get a great deal!  I got us each a pair for this year and if we bowl 6 times our shoe cost will be less than if we rented shoes 6 times.  And with our own shoes, we can go more often!  

AMF Bowling Centers

AMF is not doing free summer bowling this year.  Instead, you can buy a summer pass that gets each pass holder THREE games of bowling PER DAY from May 22 to September 4, 2017  The cost is $23.95 for kids 15 and under.  And $28.95 for 16 and up (“and up” includes adults too so the whole family can take part!)  AND shoe rental is included in your pass!  So while it’s not free, if it’s something you see your family using at least once a week, it’s an incredible value!  At once a week, that’s 15 trips to the bowling alley.  Three games per trip is a total of 45 games of bowling.  That comes out to $1.60 to $1.92 per person, per trip or just  $.53 to $.64 per game!   And you don’t even have to pay extra for shoe rentals on each trip!
