Apart from the unbelievable bowling alley, the place also has really amazing food and an island-themed bar if you are looking to sip on some cocktail.
In what can only be termed as a sheer spectacle, there is a new bowling alley 'underwater' that could be the ideal place for your next weekend trip. Do you enjoy bowling and enjoy spending quality time with your kids? Well, you are in for a major surprise, thanks to a place that has a restaurant, bar and a 12-lane bowling alley -- all 'underwater' in Bridgeport, Connecticut, reports Timeout.
The underwater-themed place is called Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill and it could be your ideal getaway trip for not only your kids but also for yourself. Imagine an indoor activity involving bowling and you are accompanied by stingrays and sea turtles! It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Even if your aspiring mermaids and mermen (or marine biologists) want to enjoy the underwater experience, take them on this ride that is considered a marvel of a thing!
Wait, before you get too excited, it is not exactly underwater, however, the atmosphere and the decor of the place will make you feel like you are playing a game of bowling with sea creatures!
The kitschy undersea decor brings about the perfect mix of themed lighting, backdrops and custom bowling balls that tends to look like an octopus or mermaid. The place is also equipped with wooden lanes having faux sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater critters.
"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 website description reads.
Now if are really looking forward to going to this place and having a good time, do not worry. We have got all the details here! You can go bowling from Monday to Friday (11 am–5 pm at $25/hour per lane). It is also available from Sunday – Thursday after 5 pm ($30/hr per lane) and Fri 5 pm–Sunday until 5 pm ($35/hr per lane). (At the time of publication, prices may vary!)
And also a few reminders, in case you are seeking this adventure. If you are going as a group of friends, we'd like to notify that not more than eight people are allowed in a single bowling lane at a given time. You will also have to shell out $4.25 per pair of shoes for rent and $3.50 per pair for socks. If you do not fancy bowling, there is also billiards available at this location.
The place has become a popular spot for many tourists and locals who enjoy a good game of bowling. Many of them even took to Twitter to share their experiences. "Went bowling tonight to celebrate my friend's little brother's birthday at an underwater themed bowling alley. Pretty cool! C:"
Meanwhile, another added, "There’s a pretty good #Groupon for 6 to go bowling. 2hrs and comes with 2 jugs of pop and 2 pizzas. Cool underwater decor."
Apart from the unbelievable bowling alley, the place also has really amazing food and an island-themed bar if you are looking to sip on some cocktail. And with the booze, you can also enjoy the view of tropical fishes swimming in a 750-gallon saltwater aquarium.
