“No Twilight Please”
Review of Spare Time Bowling

Spare Time Bowling
Ranked #1 of 2 Fun & Games in Groton
Attraction details
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Came in with the family on a Saturday night. My request was to have a lane on the non 'twilight side. I wanted to place my family where people weren't drinking or rap music wasn't playing with explicit lyrics.
They are clearly advertising on the marquee behind the counter $4.59 per game and $3.99 per shoe rental. We only wanted one game as it was already 11pm. Clerk tells me the price would be almost $70 because they want to get people to bowl on the 'twilight' side and the manager was adamant about it. I said that's fine but we can leave. They did accommodate. I had my wife and son with me so we didn't want the party side. I also noticed a double couple and fifth wheel came to the quiet side too. It was a good time. We didn't eat or have drinks, as we were visiting for the wknd and had hotel fever

This is a great place to go bowling. The customer service is incredible. We have spent hours bowling here and their bar is also very good as well. We had our 7 year olds birthday party here in January and they did a great job and the kids had a good time and it was well worth the money. There arcade is very small not really worth mentioning, but they also do leagues which I have also participated in and had a great time. Definitely recommend going here for a fun night out, birthday party, or a family outing
