Kids Bowl Free – Sign Up Now

Category : Arlington, entertainment, family, Featured, free

It’s almost summer, which means it’s time again to participate in the Kids Bowl Free program! Simply visit their website and select a bowling center near you, then register your children. They’ll receive 2 free games of bowling each day all summer long! Note that shoe rental isn’t included in this discount, so you will need to pay a couple of bucks for those (or bring your own bowling shoes). This is good for kids 15 and under. The coupons will be sent to your email weekly. Note that some bowling lanes only allow the coupons to be used during certain hours, so check those out before you pick your venue.

If you’d like, after you register you’ll also have the option of purchasing a Family Pass. With this pass, you’ll also get 2 free games of bowling each day for up to 4 adults. This is a good option for parents, grandparents or older siblings. The pass is $28.95, but if you use the coupon code Memorial14 at checkout, you’ll get 14 percent off, making it just $24.90. (Coupon code is good through May 26.)

In Fort Worth, participating lanes include Cowtown Bowling Palace and Cityview Lanes. In Arlington, there’s Putt Putt Golf and Alley Cats, and Pin Center Bowl in Cleburne. See all participating lanes in Texas here.
