If you want to have some fun out of the sun for cheap, visit freebowling.amf.com. There are some great deals for kids ages 16 and under. Leave the heat outside; instead go sit in the air conditioned comfort of a participating AMF bowling center near you, listen to some music and create some fun memories.
If your kids are younger, lane bumpers and ball ramps are available to make the game fun and easier. Just remember to bring or wear socks because shoe rental is required for all those who are bowling.
My children love bowling; it’s fun, active, social and local and – best of all – it’s FREE! There are special activities and contests held during this summer long promotion which ends September 5, 2011.
HOW DO I GET THIS:
Just sign up at http://www.amf.com/home , register your kids’ names and get emails with coupons for free bowling (YOU do have to PAY for shoe rentals). Every Sunday you’ll receive weekly coupons all summer long. Within 24 hours of signing up, you will receive an email with a coupon you can print and bring with you. Coupons will also be sent to the address you register with. An example of a coupon is 1 FREE game per person, up to 10 people in your group – so invite your friends and have a ball.
There are so many AMF bowling centers across Long Island. (There are at least 13 listed in a 25 mile radius of my zip code alone).
HOW MUCH AND WHEN:
Free Bowling is available until 8 PM, 7 days a week!
• There are family packages you can sign up for so the whole family can join in on the fun. $19.95 allows four people 17 and older to bowl two free games every day all summer long! Again shoe rental is not included.
• There is a special package called AMF Pizza for up to 6 people includes 2 hours of bowling, shoe rental, 1 pitcher of soda and 1 large pizza. Check your local AMF Bowling center for pricing details.
• Kids meals are available for $2.99 all summer long, which includes 2 chicken tenders, grilled cheese, hot dog or kids sliders with fries and a drink. My kids preferred the chicken tenders meal. The snack bar is always open for refreshments and lane-side tables are available.
