If you’re looking for more ways to beat the heat this summer while keeping the kids occupied, several bowling centers are offering free bowling (not including shoe rental) this summer. This year is also the first year for the Kids Skate Free program.
Kids Bowl Free
This summer, kids can bowl free (2 games per person, per day) at participating bowling centers through the Kids Bowl Free program. You’ll register at a participating bowling center near you, then log in to your Kids Bowl Free account weekly to print your coupons.
When you sign up, you’ll also have the opportunity to purchase a family pass for $24.95 that allows up to four adult family members to bowl 2 games per person, per day throughout the summer, too. For our local readers, there are several participating Minnesota locations.
AMF Bowling is also allowing kids 15 and under to bowl for free this summer through their Summer Unplugged program. Register your email address and you’ll get a weekly voucher for two free games per child, per day through September 3. Shoe rental is not included. Find an AMF Bowling location near you.
Brunswick Bowling also has a free bowling promotion going on this summer. Students 18 and younger get one free game of bowling every day in June, July and August. Kids ages 13-18 can create their own Brunswick Zone profile, but parents will need to add kids ages 12 and under to the parents’ account. Find a Brunswick Zone location near you.
Kids Skate Free
This year is the first year for the Kids Skate Free program, which allows kids to roller skate for free during specified times (year-round – this is not specifically a summer program). Age limit requirements vary by location. Skate rental is not included, but you may bring your own skates if you have them. Check the Kids Skate Free FAQ for more information and find a participating Kids Skate Free location near you.
For our Minnesota readers, there is a participating location in Woodbury. For this specific location, passes are valid for children 12 years and younger and can be used on Fridays from 4:30-9:30pm and Sundays from 12-4pm.
