Games are definitely fun but what if they are educational at the same time? An underwater themed bowling alley in Connecticut is just the place for a perfect weekend.
Parents are always complaining about how their kids never want to step out of their house. Always stuck to their television and computer screens, kids have no idea of how it feels to do something fun outside the radius of their computer screens. For parents who want to take their kids to a fun educational place, a unique 12-lane bowling alley has opened up in Bridgeport Connecticut, according to TimeOut.
Calling itself Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill, this underwater themed restaurant bar and bowling alley will blow your mind and will not only be a fun trip for your kids but also you. The blue restaurant with sea turtles and sharks is also the perfect spot for anyone interested in marine life.
The restaurant with its lighting and ocean-themed backdrop in combination with its custom-made bowling alley that looks like an octopus or mermaid delivers a perfect undersea experience for its customers. The wooden bowling alley that has faux turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater critters adds to the unique character of the place.
The official website of this underwater restaurant-cum-bowling alley promises to offer the best underwater ocean experience. The website says, "Many full lanes of bowling offer a unique underwater ocean experience! Custom bowling balls that bear the likeness of octopus, mermaids, camouflage and more! “Dock” wooden lanes feature underwater scenery of sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater species! Handpainted murals and fish hanging from the ceiling bring everything together for a deep sea dive like no other. You have to see it to believe it!"
The bowling alley is open from Monday to Friday from 11 am to 5 pm at $25/hour per lane. It is also available from Sunday to Thursday after 5 pm at $30/hr per lane and Fri 5 pm–Sunday until 5 pm at $35/hr per lane. However, the website requires you to notify in advance in case of a group. The website has also added that not more than eight people are allowed at a single lane. The place will also have a charge of $4.25 for a pair of rented shoes and $3.50 per for a pair of socks. Apart from bowling, the place also has billiards.
