Score FREE family fun at the bowling alley this summer! 🎳

If you’re looking to get your kids involved in something new, look no further because we have a great option for you – and it’s free!

The annual Kids Bowl Free Program offers kids (whose age does not exceed the limit set by the participating bowling center) the opportunity to bowl absolutely free throughout the entire summer – that’s a $200+ value per kiddo!

This is a fun, cheap option to get you and your kiddos out of the house for some good old-fashioned fun! The program is offered at over 1,500 bowling centers in the US and Canada, so there is a good chance you’ll have this program at a bowling alley near you!


Snag some fun your kiddos will love! This is a great way to get your kiddos to have fun and meet new friends! Plus it gets them actively embracing a new way of burning energy during those long summer months. It’s a new adventure with A/C so no need to worry about the outside heat!

Let’s get those kids registered! Each child will snag coupons for two free games of bowling daily throughout the entire summer!

To register your kids, head over here and select a bowling center near you. Do not be discouraged if your location has not opened yet.

Note that registration openings will depend on your location. Make sure to enter your email to get notified if your location has not opened up just yet.

But wait, there are more ways to save!

The Kids Bowl Free program also offers a great deal for parents and older siblings! You can snag an optional Family Pass which allows up to four adults to bowl two free games right alongside the kids all summer long!

Even sweeter, score 10% off your family pass with code WELCOME10 at checkout!

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.

Psst! Shoe rental options for your specific bowling center should be displayed 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, it is recommended you call your center about this option. If you are interested in purchasing bowling shoes for your kiddo, consider heading to and grabbing these Classic Kids Rental Bowling Shoes.

    Thanks so much for posting about this again this year!! We did this last year with our kiddos since my husband works on base right next to the bowling alley and it turned out to be such a great way for my husband to meet up with us and spend some quick over his lunch hour bowling for free with the kids! 😁

      You’re so welcome, shpootsen45! 🤗 Love that you were able to enjoy some family time with this freebie! 🎳❤️

    Thanks for the heads up! It said registration for my location isn’t open yet, but it let me enter my email to be notified when it does. 🤞

      You’re most welcome, Emily! ❤️ So glad that you were able to enter your email to get a notification when registration is available for your location! 🎳

    Question…Does the bowling alley require you to rent bowling shoes or is it optional?

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question, Debbie! I would suggest calling your local bowling alley to find out if they require shoe rental. This can vary by location. 🤗 ❤️
