How to Plan a Birthday Party at a Bowling Alley February 4, 2020

How to Plan a Birthday Party at a Bowling Alley, ,

A bowling alley is an amazing venue for throwing a birthday party for your child. However, a little planning and organization can mean the difference between a good party and a great one. Here’s a guide on how to make the best of your bowling alley celebration. 

How to Plan a Bowling Alley Birthday Party

1. Choose an Alley With Bumpers

One of the first steps is to make sure you’re picking a bowling alley that has an option to use bumpers. Since kids are still learning how to bowl and developing their strength, the bumpers will ensure that every ball has a chance.

It can be a major disappointment if most of the bowls end up in the gutter; however, the bumpers will keep them in play and the kids’ spirits high. 

2. Scope Out the Food Options

Ideally, the alley can provide a kid-friendly food like pizza that everyone can enjoy. That way, lunch or dinner can be a seamless part of the party!

3. Assign an Adult to Each Lane

You want to give the kids some space while also monitoring the situation. By loosely assigning an adult to each lane, you can have someone keep an eye on the situation while still offering the kids a sense of freedom and independence.
