Let's Bowl, Let's Bowl Let's Rock & Roll
I have always had a great time when I have visited Strike Bowling in central Surfers Paradise, which is a fair few times now. It has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and loads of entertainment on offer all under one roof.
Strike Bowling Bar
Of course nothing is ever cheap, especially if you have a large group, so any deals that are on offer will always help the bank balance. Luckily, Strike have a range of weekly deals that can save you some dollars, but don't reduce or cut short the fun.
It is a perfect place for couples and first dates, groups of mates, family get-togethers and parties offering bowling of course, but also pool tables ($3), a large games room, ping pong table, drinks and food, music and large AV screens, and also karaoke rooms.
The food is great, just pizza and bar snacks but really good, the drinks are pretty pricey but I guess no more so than anywhere else on the Gold Coast. So if you are heading there for a few drinks, I would recommend taking advantage of one of the drink deals.
So what are the deals?
Mondays from 5pm Spend just $6 on food or drink and get a free game of bowling. Not bad when you consider usually a game at that time would be $14.
Tuesdays All Day This is the 888 deal. All bowling is $8 a game, cocktails (usually around $12) are just $8 and pizza is $8 too (usually around $10). A great deal that saves you money across the board. Beers and Cider are around $7.50 so if you are not a fan of cocktails it won't save you money on drinks.
Wednesdays from 5pm This is a mega offer. It includes unlimited bowling, karaoke and pool for just $20 per person. A really good deal and perfect for a midweek night out with a group of mates.
Thursdays from 8pm
A little later in the evening than the other deals, this is the buckets and balls deal. Bowling is just $7 and then food on offer is Thai Buckets at $12 and buckets of beer and cider is $20.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays – everyday prices Day bowling (10am - 4pm) is 1 game $12 and 2 games $20 Night bowling (4pm – late) is 1 game $16 and 2 games $28
Karaoke is $50 per hour.
The only deal on offer Friday to Sunday 10-5pm is a family package $38, which is valid for 2 adults & 2 children. Children must be under 14 years.
A place with bags of atmosphere and fun. Also if you fancy something sweet after a hard night of bowling and pool then just outside is Chocolateria San Churro offering chocolate treats, doughnuts and coffee. A yummy indulgent way to end a great night out.
