Best ten-pin bowling alleys for kids in Singapore

bowling alleys
Spiffy footwear, a bit of friendly competition and even some cosmic lighting: we've found the best bowling alleys in Singapore for families...

Kids are notoriously hard to please, and finding a sport for teens, tykes and toddlers can be a bit of a challenge. Plus, with all this rain around at the moment, we’re not too keen on booking outdoor classes that end up cancelled (the drama of a change in plan for a tot is, at times, pretty award-winning). But if you still fancy keeping the kiddos (and you) active, then we know a fun-packed sport that absolutely fits the bill: ten-pin bowling! A bit of friendly competition and a snazzy pair of shoes is sure to liven up an otherwise dreary weekend, so here are the places you can score a strike at a kid-friendly bowling alley in Singapore…

Kallang Bowl
One of the oldest and largest bowling centres in Singapore, Kallang Bowl has definitely kept up to speed with all the latest bowling tech: all 22 competition lanes are equipped not only with bumpers, but with state-of the art technology and touch screen controls! Look out for league details to ramp things up a notch and book ahead if you can – it gets busy! Once you’re done with bowling, we say head upstairs to cool down with a spin or two around the ice rink at Kallang Ice World.

Orchid Bowl
Orchid Bowl has locations all over Singapore (some of which are in family-friendly shopping malls: the perfect pay off for persuading the kiddos to join you for that essential supermarket dash). Enjoy cosmic bowling – glow-in-the-dark bowling complete with disco lights – during weekdays for a cool after school activity, or head to Orchid Bowl @ E!Hub where smaller tots will love the Highway 66 sessions: miniature bowling with shorter lanes, automated bumpers and lighter bowling balls for tiny hands. There’s also a pretty awesome Dragon Ramp where you can roll your ball down a dragon’s back for (hopefully) a strike or two.

SuperBowl
For hours of affordable family fun, head over to a SuperBowl where prices are low (including at weekend rates) and you’ll find lanes aplenty.

Forte Bowl
If you like your bowling with a bit of ultraviolet light thrown in for good measure, head to Forte Bowl, where you’ll find 20 Brunswick bowling lanes with light effects and high-tech touchscreen consoles. If your kids are night owls (yep: ours), then try out cosmic bowling happening every Saturday night from 10pm to 1am. Or just ditch them for a date night.

Westwood Bowl
Featuring 24 lanes, 180 bowling balls, and 450 lockers for rental, Westwood Bowl has some of the best knock-down adventures to be had around the island. It also has the cheapest rates in Singapore – $3 per game  – perfect for a post-Xmas spend cleanse! This also makes a great option for a birthday party that packs a punch.
