The weather is bitter, the snow is still coming, and March Break is coming up. If you are getting cabin fever and are looking for something to do with the kids, try bowling! A lot of the alleys in London these days are not like they were back when we were kids. You can easily jump from bowling to other fun activities – make a whole afternoon of it! This is great family fun for all ages.
This is classic bowling at it’s best! Bowlerama offers great deals on games and shoe rentals, as well as Cosmic Bowling, darts, pool, and giant TVs to watch sports when you need a little distraction. They have active bowling leagues for juniors, seniors and adults if you discover that one of you has a talent for the sport! Bowlerama is located on Dundas Street east, between Clarke Road and Veteran’s Memorial Parkway.
Fleetway has everything! Five and ten pin bowling, 18 holes of glow golf, a 40 foot rock climbing wall, Playdium Lite games room, and 14 billiard tables. And DAIRY QUEEN, which just seals the deal, doesn’t it? They have great rates and March Break specials happening all week. At Fleetway, they strive to be inclusive and accessible for all guests. If someone in your family has special needs that aren’t being met be sure to check in with staff to see how they can accommodate you. Their facility is fully wheelchair accessible, including the glow golf and bowling lanes (but not rock climbing – those wheels need to stay on the ground!). Fleetway is an alcohol-free facility. Fleetway is located on Proudfoot Lane, just east of the Oxford and Wonderland intersection.
Palasad has two locations: south by Wonderland and Southdale Roads and north at Oxford and Adelaide. You can choose from ten pin bowling, billiards, ping pong, karaoke, arcade, and even laser tag at the south location. Palasad is also known for it’s restaurant with the wood-fired thin crust pizza, so come hungry. With their large selection of domestic and craft beers on tap, as well as imported and Ontario wines, you may want to leave the kids at home and make this a date night venue instead! Palasad also has special rates for all of March Break.
