Bowl In The Dark At The Wow Alley

You probably have been to many bowling alleys and have played numerous bowling games as a result. And like any ardent sportsman/woman, you are probably looking for something extra, something that will excite you or give you that bowling challenge that you seek. The ultra-modern Wow Alley may just have what you need. We have introduced a ‘bowling in the dark’ theme that we think you and your friends would love. Read on to learn more about this.

Our ‘Wow after dark’ theme

Our cosmic ‘wow after dark’ bowling party experience will be available at our Wow Alley facility on Coconut Creek, FL, on Fridays and Saturdays. The themed experience will begin at 8pm and end at midnight. During this time, the normal bright lights will have been switched off and instead will be replaced by black lights and lasers.

All the facilities and amenities that you love about our alley will, however, remain as is. This includes the alley setup, the music, the video screens, the wine bar, etc. The ‘wow after dark’ theme will only skew the aesthetics of our facility and offer a darker, more intriguing, cosmic alley look and experience.

What the ‘Wow after dark’ experience holds

Now you might be wondering, how would anyone manage to bowl in the dark? Well, to put you at ease, the ‘wow after dark’ experience is not as literal as it sounds. You will not be bowling in complete darkness. Think of the ambience and setting of a nightclub. That’s a better example of the vibe you should expect at our ‘wow after dark’ experience. You will not be at risk of tripping or losing your playing edge on the alley fronts. The lasers and dark lights will be enough to allow you to get around and to play as you normally do. The only difference is that the setting will be stealthier.

Why you absolutely have to try bowling in the dark

You have to try our ‘wow after dark’ bowling experience because it will provide you with a game-play experience like you haven’t had before.  Sure, the normal bowling experience is fun but this is exciting, simply because it’s different. The club-like appearance of the alley is especially great is you are the type that likes to go out. Complete with a bar and lounge seats, the ambience will make you feel as though you are in one – only with bowling available. So give it a try!

How to make bowling in the dark even more fun

Our ‘wow after dark’ cosmic theme offers an exciting experience that all our customers love. But that is not as far as the fun goes. You can make the experience even more exciting in a number of ways. For example, you can wear glow-in-the-dark garments or accessories and stand out among your friends. You could also try competing against your daytime scores to see which environment you perform better in. Try to create more ideas with your friends; the process of doing so is still part of the excitement that is ‘wow after dark.

Liven Up Your Bowling Party With These 5 Ideas

The Wow Alley located on Coconut Creek, FL, is a dream bowling destination for kids, teens, adults, and groups. Boasting a modern bowling facility with 10 alleys, automatic counters, music, giant video screens, food, and even a wine & beer bar, it is easy to see why anyone planning to have a fun time bowling should only have one option in mind. However, as fun as the Wow Alley is slated to be, there are plenty more ideas on how to make your bowling party even more exciting for all those involved. Check out some of these ideas below.

1. Compete against each other

Bowling has always been a competitive sport. It may not be as competitive as athletics or court games but it sure does bring out the needed effect. One way to liven things up a bit, therefore, is to compete against each other. You can do so as individuals while playing on one bowling alley or you can form teams and compete against each other with each team playing on a separate alley. If your party is big enough, you can book the entire Alley and make it an all-out championship war.

2. Make fun bets

If you are used to competing against each other at the bowling alley, you can take things a notch higher and bring the competitive spirit to a new level. You can make this happen by making fun bets. The bets here can be for anything, such favors or treats such as drinks at the bar. You can take bets against individual members or against teams. The losing teams or individuals will then have to pay up their bets at the end. This is guaranteed to make your bowling party more exciting and even more rewarding for the best players.

3.  Organize to have your special music played

The Wow Alley offers great music all day long to participating customers and groups. However, if you are having a bowling party at our facility, you could bring your favorite music and ask to have it played for your guests. This way, your party will enjoy just the right kind of music they like. This could be children’s music or even dance music for the adults. And as you well know, nothing underlines a party better than great music that the people actually like.

4. Bring entertainers to the party

A good party can always use an entertainer. And the same applies to bowling parties too! Talk to us at the Wow Alley and let us know if you would like to bring an entertainer to your bowling party. You could organize to bring in a clown or a face painter for the kids or you could bring in a band for your adult guests. Now that should make it a bowling party to remember!

5. Bowl in the dark

Ever bowled in the dark? Do you think you could pull it off? We have recently introduced our latest attraction – a ‘bowling in the dark’ theme which will be available on Fridays and Saturdays from 8pm to midnight. Experience dark lights, lasers, music, videos, and a whole new bowling ambiance. Planning a night bowling party? Then you absolutely have to try this out.

The Wow Alley’s ‘Best Choice’ Selections for Bowling Balls

Bowling is not only a favored American pastime, but it’s also one some people take very seriously. When it comes to tools for either professional or recreational bowlers, the first tool that comes to mind is your bowling ball. In this week’s blog, we help you discover our ‘Best Choice’ selections for bowling balls. Ready, set, throw!

What Ball Should You Buy and Why?

When it comes to selecting the right bowling ball for you, there are many things to consider. First, you want to buy one that won’t crack or peel when throwing it down the lane. These sportsman’s tools need to be durable and withstand a lot of abuse. One of the best materials to buy is a urethane material with the proper weight. Determining the weight before buying your ball is vital to pick what will work best for you. Balls come in a variety of colors and weight. Pricing can vary greatly so we encourage you to try before you buy. Go to the bowling alley and spend a little time throwing every size ball you find on the shelves to see what feels the most comfortable.

Weight Matters When It Comes to Buying the Right Ball

The balls range in weight from 6-lbs to 16. Women and children will select a ball between 8 and 14 pounds whereas a man is more comfortable between 14-16 lbs. Heavier isn’t always better as many people feel more comfortable throwing a lighter ball. People seeking to do tricks, or throw with a spin, tend to go for lighter balls. Whatever suits you best is what you should choose.

Don’t Go for Looks Alone

One of the nicest balls on the market today is called the Moxy Exothermic Burst Bowling Ball. Not only does it look cool with swirls of color, but it’s also ideal for backend motion. This bowling ball is manufactured with a high resin finish making the ball careening down the lane with the utmost precision. If you want to learn more about very cool choice, then visit this link:

Next, Motiv’s Tribal collection is another top-notch ball that includes a halogen core. This ball is crazy cool and can help you throw a mean hook. The 70×40 @3.75” No Hole is one dynamite tool that will get you the results you want. We highly recommend this ball to be added to your bowling bag.

As with any sport, you need to have the tools necessary for such high performance. If you’re someone who is into the sport and not just an enthusiast, we suggest you visit a pro-shop that specializes in the sport of bowling. However, our staff may help you with more ideas.

Retro First Dates for All Ages

In today’s dating world, there may be times where one could get into a slump. Finding new things to do can often be a challenge. Dinner and a movie are somewhat over rated. Some theories state dinner and a movie to be one of the worst ideas when it comes to first dates. Why? Because you can’t get an opportunity to speak to someone during the show and aren’t first dates meant to be the exploratory phase? Well, we have a few answers for you. In this blog, we state why bowling is an excellent activity for first dates, no matter what your age.

Per the International Bowling Museum, bowling began in 300 AD. If that’s not retro, we don’t know what is! Nonetheless, this ancient past time has been filling hearts with joy ever since they started. Rather than taking a date somewhere over priced and giving your date a ‘bore-into,’ why not introduce your new friend to one of the most fun and oldest sports in the history books? You might just find this to be your new hobby even after you’ve gotten married and had nine kids!

Okay, we’re obviously joking. But, the sport of bowling can be enjoyable, fun and exciting. You can see how your date will be in many future situations such as competitiveness, politeness, and strategic planning. However, why would these attributes entail revealing strong character?

Here are your answers:

Competitiveness in bowling is an excellent approach when you’re at the bowling alley. On a first date basis, this may tell you a lot of whether you’re continuing the relationship. In other words, keep the competition on the lanes!

Polite and etiquette go hand in hand or finger in the ball while bowling. As you know, it’s important to remember to wait for the person who is standing next to you

Strategic planning is another characteristic your date may impress you with when it comes to bowling. This type of aspect can help determine if this person will be on point planning your future family events and such.

Of course, these are just a few reasons to make a night of bowling one of your first dates. No matter if you’re 15 or 50 you can’t go wrong bringing your date-night to the bowling alley. All in all, we think pins and the bowling ball can help build strong relationships even when it’s the very first date.

To reserve your spot on the lanes, contact us directly.

5 Common Misconceptions About Bowling

When it comes to bowling, many people feel this is a game of skill and strength. While that might be true, there are some real misconceptions out there when it comes to knocking down ten pins. This leisure activity offers a multitude of benefits that can make a difference in just about anyone’s life. In this week’s blog, we reveal five common misconceptions about the game you might not have thought.

  1. Bowling isn’t as good as playing a video game
  2. Bowling is too easy
  3. Bowlers should play alone
  4. Ten Pins is an ‘old-school’ game
  5. Bowling is only for adults

There’s a reason why game systems such as Playstation and the Wii have created bowling games. While these might be a lot of fun to play in the comfort of your home, there’s something exciting about wearing funny looking shoes and toting around a bowling ball. Some people may argue bowling isn’t as fun as a video game. On the contrary, this is a way to offer an aerobic activity that is low impact; it’s a way to perfect your skills with strategic planning and form just as any other sport and bowling are a whole lot more fun when you get together with friends and family.

Believe it or not, but, the first games of bowling were played by the Egyptians as they used balls made of porcelain and leather rolling the human-made balls to know over stones and other objects. Since we live today, bowling has become a competitive sport because it requires you to take the proper stance and aim for the center pin. However, when you’re shooting for a straight or some other spare, you need to understand gravity and physics to know where the ball will hit the pins to knock down the ones left standing. That requires skill and makes the game more challenging. Understanding the arrows and dots on the wood lane is another tool people use making the game one that is legendary when it comes to sports.

While bowling is an activity you can play without the company of others, the game does become more fun when there are more people. The camaraderie could be one of the biggest reasons why bowling leagues got started.  We like to say “the more, the merrier,” and we’re sure you would agree after playing with a few of your closest friends.

Ten Pins or bowling is not an old-school game. Today, kids of all ages are enjoying the benefits of this non-contact sport.

Bowling is not just for adults either. We are seeing children as young as three, push the ball down the lane anticipating its destination. Bumper bowling is ideal for mom’s and toddlers, and we’re happy to accommodate.

We hope this clears up any misconceptions you may have had about the game of bowling and bring your family in for this international game of fun!

Teach Your Children to Give During the Holidays

With the way, today’s big world is operating many of our children seem to be getting the wrong impressions on what the holiday season should offer. It seems almost every year the kids are more focused on gifts and playtime and not enough learn the real ideology of the season. In this blog, we point out a few tips that will help your boys and girls remember to help make the world a better place.

Thanksgiving and Family Dinners are always a superb time to discuss how much you appreciate each other. After all, our young ones learn starts at home. Why not teach them to show their gratitude toward people in your family by letting everyone comment on who and why they are thankful? You can start a gratitude jar and decorate it for the holidays and then have each family member pull one of the remarks and read during the dinner. Announcing why we’re gracious is not only fun, it’s 100% heartwarming.

Next up, “Random Acts of Kindness.” It seems we all have a little too much on our plate today to take our mind off and place our energies elsewhere. Remember the old folks that live next door or a charity that has a worthy cause. Get your children involved in philanthropy and doing kind things for others without making a big deal of it. Perhaps they can volunteer to help take out the garbage for the senior woman living alone or bring them to charitable events for kids less fortunate to help open their eyes to helping others.

Hold a food or toy drive within your neighborhood. Anyone can do this activity. When you get, your kids involved, it becomes a unique event. Help them promote giving to other children their age by collecting food or toys, and they bring to a drop off center. Food drives are something you can do any time of year. These are events you can do anytime. The whole idea is to help you son or daughter be open to looking out for the needs of others. We call it humanity, and it makes a huge difference when more of us can be pro-active in the community.

Give your kids the ideas to do nice things for others, and you’ll be teaching them some value and morals important to their success on becoming great citizens.
