Spend some FREE family fun at the bowling alley this summer! 🎳

If you’re looking to get your kids off their devices, look no further because we have a great option for you – and it’s free!

This annual Kids Bowl Free Program offers kids (whose age does not exceed the limit made by the participating bowling center) the opportunity to bowl absolutely free throughout the entire summer – that’s a $500+ value per child!

Worried about bowling and the coronavirus? Each center is making a decision based upon their ability to open again safely and taking many things into consideration such as how they can sanitize touch points, create distancing and many other logistical issues. Read more here.

This program is offered at over 1,500 bowling centers in all 50 states in the US and Canada, so there is a good chance you’ll have this program at a bowling alley near you!

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.

Note that when you click on a bowling alley location, you will either see a registration form or a place for you to submit your email to be notified when registration is open at that particular center. Not all locations are available to register at this time.

But wait, there are more ways to save!

This program also offers a great deal for parents and older siblings with the optional Family Pass which allows up to 4 adults to bowl two free games right alongside the kids all summer long.

After you sign your child up to bowl for free, you will be directed to a page offering the Family Pass – 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 signed up to bowl along with your child.

The Family Pass is just $29.95 (one-time payment) but you can use promo code JUNE15 to get 15% off a Family Pass for a limited time. This pass is valid for the entire length of the Kids Bowl Free program at your local bowling center and note that the starting price of the Family Pass may vary by region.

    Not a single alley near us is participating 😔

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Sorry to hear that, Kimberly.

    yikes! No way would I take my kids into a closed environment with tons of other people! We are not “going out”/inside for several more months.

      Most bowling alleys are dead during the weekdays. Avoid league nights and weekends and I’m sure you won’t have problems social distancing. And you can always call them in advance to see how busy they are.

    • Stacy P

      Same, no way. I have seen and felt this virus first hand. No way absolutely not.

    • Joni

      I agree but my dad who is An avid bowler went during the day and it wasn’t busy. There were lanes blocked for social distancing and he and the person he went with wore masks. He said they cleaned. I wish he wouldn’t go since he is high risk but I can’t stop him. I did appreciate the extra care the bowling alley is taking.

    We’ve done this the last few years. Whenever we’ve been there the alley is nearly empty. If that is the case again I would be fine taking my kids there. We are going stir crazy being at home so looking forward to doing some activities as the summer progresses.

    • rochellemcgee

      Same. It was rare for me to have anyone one in either of the two ones adjacent to me. It’s a great program; I’m usually signed up by now but just forgot.

  4. Becky

    Love this program! Our local bowling alley is almost always empty on summer afternoons and my kids love bowling there!

  5. Trey

    FANTASTIC!!!! THANK YOU H2S!!!!! 🙂 My kiddos will be THRILLED!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are so welcome! ENJOY!

  6. Monkey

    We did this last year and the local alley was not packed. We ended up not finishing because my toddler had a melt down. The bowling alley was nice enough to give us a couple game tokens to offset the free round and that brightened his day.

  7. Tonya S

    I signed up for the family pass 2 years ago in NM and was very disappointed. They have leagues all day on Saturday so we could never use it. I would call every Saturday at 9 am and they would tell me it was booked. We never bowled once! 😡

    • rochellemcgee

      Why didn’t you try another day or time? It’s good for the entire summer. Seems weird to be upset that they couldn’t accommodate you when you kept trying to return on the same day where the lanes are already rented out well in advance.

  8. nicolecoleman

    Can I use other bowling alleys or does it have to be the one I registered at? I’d like to try others as well

    • Jodi

      You have to register for a specific alley you will use the passes at, so no you can’t use multiple bowling alleys.

  9. Skasper

    I doubt bowling alleys will open here in WA before the end of summer and this was one of our favorite activities last summer!

  10. llaundawillingham

    sites are very limited, i wouldn’t worry about crowds, EVERYONE has to abide by the rules. I live in a very large city in central california, none in my city, crazy, I know we have TONS of bowling alleys, so I find it strange that there isn’t even one in our city, guess a sign of the times, alas
