If you’re looking for smart ways to keep your child entertained this summer we have a great option for you – and it’s free!

Kids can bowl FREE all summer long through the Kids Bowl Free Program! With the average game costing between $3.25 and $5 and the fact that kids can play up to 2 free games per day, this works out to at least a $400 value per kid. Awesome!

There are more than 1,500 bowling centers in the US and Canada offering Kids Bowl Free, which is a great way to get your kids out of the house for some old-fashioned fun. Note that the age limit for the Kids Bowl Free program is set by participating bowling centers and may vary.

To register your kids, head to the Kids Bowl Free website and select a bowling center near you. Each child will snag coupons for two free bowling games daily throughout the entire summer!

Note that registration availability will vary based on your location. If your location has not opened for reservations, make sure to enter your email address to get notified.

The whole family can save on bowling, too!

Parents and older siblings can also take advantage of the Kids Bowl Free program with an optional Family Pass. This pass allows up to four adults to bowl two free games each day right alongside the kids! It starts at just $34.95.

After you sign your child up to bowl for free, you will be directed to a page offering Family Passes – you do not need to purchase this for your child to bowl free as he or she has already been signed up (look at the very top of the page where it says congratulations). This is purely an option to get the rest of your family discounted bowling so you can play along with your child.

Don’t forget your bowling shoes.

Shoe rentals are not included in the pass. You can find shoe rental options for your bowling center on the right-hand side of the registration page. Keep in mind that each center’s policy is different, and some centers even offer an unlimited shoe rental pass for the summer. For more information, call your center about this option.

    I signed up for this last year but never used it. They sent me a coupon for this year to sign up my family. I had it in my cart and was figuring out if it was worth it, and they sent me another code for $11 off, a better deal than the first. I think I paid $30 or less for my whole family (2 kids and 2 adults) and my parents to bowl free all summer long. My mom and I took the kids the other day. You do have to rent shoes. But for 2 games, we paid $18 for shoes and that was it. Loved it. I even won one game!!

      WOW! How awesome that you scored a coupon for this year, Lpmousse! Thanks a bunch for sharing this tip to keep an eye out for! 🥰 Congrats on winning a game! 🎳 Sounds like a great and affordable time!

      Awesome that you’ve enjoyed the free summer bowling program in the past, rn404. Your son must be thrilled to have one more summer of fun at the bowling alley before he turns 16! 🎳 Have a great time tomorrow! ❤️

    We have gone 6 times already. We go to a USAF base bowling alley and it’s about 30 mins away or we would go more! Ours offers a summer card for $20/person for shoes as well!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Sweet! Love that you’ve been able to go quite a few times already this summer! 🙌 What a great deal on the shoes for the summer too at your location.
