Bowling is a really fun activity to do with kids! It can get REALLY costly, though. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways that you can let your kids experience the thrill of the lanes without melting your wallet.
Milan Lanes, Milan offers regular bowling for .99/person/game Sunday, Tues-Thurs 11 AM-10 PM and Fri/Sat 11 AM-7 PM. Shoe rental is just $2/person.
There's also a national program called "Kids Bowl Free". With this program you sign up your child(ren) at an alley *Note-your coupons are only good at the alley you choose at signup. They aren't transferable to any other alley.* and get 2 games of bowling per day FREE. You do still have to pay if you need to rent shoes, though many alleys are offering a season pass for shoe rentals. There's also an option to add a family pass. For $26.95 you can add up to 4 adults and they'll get the same 2 games/day free. Many of our local alleys participate in this national program. Miller Time, Davenport allows you to use your Kids Bowl Free coupons Tuesday-Sunday from 12-6 PM, and offers a $25/person or $50/family shoe pass good from now through August 16. At BowlMor in Davenport, kids can bowl from now through August 15 Monday-Friday 11-8 PM. Quad City Family Entertainment Center, Moline participates in Kids Bowl Free. You can bowl there now-September 1 from open-5 PM. Both BowlMor and QCFEC also offer shoe passes.
Think your kids are too little to carry a heavy ball? Most alleys have these great ramps that you can set up for them. You carry the ball to the top and they get to push it down the lane. Even 2 year olds can have fun with that! Grab some friends and give bowling a try this summer.
