Why Do Bowling Prices Vary per Location?

Round1 prices may vary by location due to the overall cost of running a specific location. Operating a Round1 in a big city could be more expensive compared to a smaller town. So, if you live in or near California, your local Round1 may charge relatively steep prices compared to a location in Kentucky.

Also, the time and day you decide to go to Round1 can dramatically affect the price you’ll pay to bowl. Prices will almost always be higher on the weekend or around a holiday when more families will be out and looking to celebrate.

The bowling lanes include timed games, so the kids will play video games afterward.

How to Find Out the Exact Price to Bowl at Round1

Price variation can make it difficult to know exactly how much you’ll pay for a Round1 bowling session. Luckily, you’ve got a few options to get exact pricing or prepare for any price hikes:

  • Visit your nearest location or click here, enter your city, and choose your activities. For example, the closest Round 1 near me is in the Cumberland Mall in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • Call the Round1 location you’re interested in visiting to ask about bowling prices. The front desk should be able to give you an accurate estimate of your costs.
  • Go online and book your party. Before you make the decision to book, you will be provided with the prices for the specific location you’ve got in mind.
  • Bring extra money when visiting Round 1 to cover unexpected costs. If you think you might spend $50, consider taking $100 to be ready for any price changes with your game purchase or other offerings.

The Round1 Membership

Round1 has a membership program that can save you money on bowling and other Round1 activities. It costs $5 plus tax and has several levels: Digital, Digital Silver, Digital Gold, and Digital Platinum, which gives you discounts on every game you play. The more you visit, the more you save.

To find out how to get started with a Round1 membership and learn how much you could possibly save, check out this graphic with more information. It could bring your bowling costs down dramatically.

Saturday afternoon and sunday afternoon are great days to sign up for their membership.

All-You-Can-Play Weekday Fun Deal

In addition to the membership, Round1 also offers an All-You-Can-Play Weekday Fun Deal. This deal allows you to play as many games of bowling, billiards, and karaoke as you want for $14.99 per person on weekdays before 5PM (pricing and times vary by location).

If your Round1 location offers this deal and you plan on playing multiple games, it could end up being a much better deal than paying for each game individually.

Other Ways to Save Money on a Bowling Outing

Want to learn more ways to save on your bowling outing at Round1? This section will share with you some easy ways to do just that!

  • Round up a group of friends and split the cost of bowling and food with them.
  • Limit the number of games you play if money is tight.
  • Ask the staff at the front desk about promotions and deals that you can take advantage of.
  • Eat before you get to Round1. You cannot bring outside food and drinks into the building, so you should eat beforehand. The food there can be expensive. For example, a 5-piece chicken tender order is $8.99, and it’s an extra $5.50 if you want the combo meal that includes french fries and a fountain drink.

How Many Hours Should You Purchase for Spark Bowling?

If you’re trying to sort out how many hours of Spark bowling you need to purchase, it’s important to know how long is a game of bowling. A typical game takes about 20 minutes for 2 people, though it can vary depending on each player’s bowling speed and (more importantly) how many people are playing.

But based on the average, if you and one other person want to bowl and pay for one hour of play, you could finish about 3 games. For a larger party of 6, it could take an hour to finish one game.

There is enough room for several groups to gather on thursday evening.

Does Round1 Accept Cash?

Yes, Round1 accepts cash as a payment method at all locations. In addition to cash, they also accept major debit and credit cards and digital payment options like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Pay. If you’re considering using a different form of payment, such as a check, Chime, or gift card, call the specific Round1 location ahead of time to confirm if your preferred payment method is accepted. You don’t want to show up and not be able to pay.

Round1 busiest days are friday evening, saturday evening and sunday evening.

How to Prepare for Your Bowling Outing at Round1

If you’ve decided that you want to go through with a bowling outing at Round1, that’s great! But before you go, there are a few things you should do to prepare:

  • Call ahead and make sure your local Round1 has bowling lanes available. 
  • Confirm who is coming with you and if a shoe rental is needed.
  • Bring cash or cards for payment, as well as extra money.
  • Decide all the activities you’ll want to play.
  • Bring your ID so that Round1 staff members can verify your age.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that are suitable for bowling. Customers won’t be let in if they’re not wearing a shirt or shoes. Also, ensure that your clothes are neither too tight nor too baggy.
  • Look over the House Rules beforehand to ensure that you won’t accidentally break any of them.

How to Roll Your First Strike

If you’ve never gotten a strike before, you’ll be glad to know that you can improve your odds of rolling one (or more) with a few tips and some practice.

Here are a few beginner tips to start with:

  • Make sure you’re holding the bowling ball correctly. Your fingers should fit comfortably in the holes, and your thumb shouldn’t be too tight or loose. If you’ve got a bad fit, choose a different ball.
  • Aim for the pocket. For right-handed bowlers, it’s the spot between pins 1 and 3, and for left-handed bowlers, it’s the spot between pins 1 and 2. Hitting the pocket will set off a domino-type reaction, drastically increasing your chances of knocking down all the pins.
  • Keep your arm straight as you swing, and release the ball at about eye level for a smooth release. If you release it too early or too late, it could veer off course and go in the gutter.
  • Follow through with your throw to help your ball go in the intended direction.
