Kids Bowl Free in Albuquerque

Summer Program Keeps Kids Active

Kids bowl free all summer at three Albuquerque bowling lanes, through the Kids Bowl Free program available nationwide. Bowling offers families a chance to get active and have fun in the cool of the indoors.

Register online for the Kids Bowl Free program at the bowling alley of your choice. The lane will email you coupons each week. Each registered child gets two free games of bowling each day. Shoe rental fees are not included. Family passes are offered for adult family members as well. Programs start at about $25 to keep grown-ups bowling all summer long.

Bowling in Albuquerque is a great way for kids to let off steam in the summer when the temperatures outside are high. As summers get warmer and we top or near the 100 degrees mark, bowling indoors is a great way for kids to expend some energy and be active without being under the blazing sun. 

There are three area bowling alleys that participate in the Kids Bowl Free program. The bowling alleys see the program as a win-win, as it introduces kids to bowling, and allows the businesses to give back to the community.
