If you just want to be indoors, your kids may like $2 Tuesday at AMF Bowling Centers (please check if you local center is participating). Enjoy $2 games and $2 shoe rentals. You can have the staff set up bumpers to help the little ones get the balls down the lanes instead of in the gutters. And you can also ask for a guardrail to help kids bowl in a straight line. AMF Bowling Centers are located throughout Long Island.
