I received a Kids Bowl Free Family Pass to try out with my family. All opinions are my own.
Are you looking for a fun way to keep your kiddos entertained and to get out of the house this summer? Kids Bowl Free is a fun program for families with kids age 15 and under (up to 6 kids) to receive coupons for 2 free games of bowling daily throughout the summer. Shoe rental is not included and cost may vary between centers.
Registration is free and easy. Simply sign up your kids under your email address and you will receive your weekly coupons by email. You also have the option to purchase a Family Pass starting at $24.95 which will allow 4 people to bowl along with your kids for 2 free games (older siblings or parents) daily. Then bring the coupons to your local center (yes, you need to print them out).
We recently tried out the Family Pass at our local Bowling center. Since I am too pregnant to bowl, my hubby and our two kiddos bowled while I cheered from the sidelines.
Here is the cost breakdown for one visit at our local center (cost may vary per center):
Shoe rental $4.50 per child(2 kids)+ $4.95 per adult (1)
Game Fee $4.35 per person (3 people) x2 = $26.10
Kids Bowl Free Savings: $26.10
This was a pretty significant savings as we only had to pay the cost to rent the shoes. (You can bring your own if you have them and it would be totally free) Mind you, this is not something we could afford to do every day for the whole summer as a family of 4. But it is well worth the savings if you visit just a few times over the course of the summer.
My family really enjoyed bowling (although they were a little out of practice). My preschooler cheered every time she knocked down pins. Even my teen had a blast and was smiling (who knew bowling with your family was actually fun).
It's not too late to sign up your kids for the program. Go to Kidsbowlfree.com and find your local participating center (US & Canada).
