What Exactly IS Cosmic Bowling?
Picture this: The lights are dimmed. Ear-splitting music rocks the room. The disco ball rolls. Neon lasers flash around the room. Welcome to cosmic bowling – The ultimate glow in the dark bowling experience that will rock your senses!
Cosmic bowling is not just regular 10-pin bowling. The cosmic bowling experience is a rock & roll bowling event for the whole family or a fun-filled evening for friends.
The cosmic bowling tour…
Imagine the pins lighting up. That’s right! In cosmic bowling the pins glow in the dark & so do some of the bowling balls, gutters & more! That is primarily why the game is played in low light conditions. This fluorescent effect gives the entire centre a “cosmic” feel – hence the name cosmic bowling. Many bowling centres offer cosmic bowling for both adults & children. Children especially love the entire glow in the dark bowling experience & are especially entertained when their clothes (whites) glow in the dark! Many bowling alleys may even offer cosmic themed bowling parties for kids birthdays so that is something worth checking out if your child’s birthday is around the corner. At Planet Bowl that offer would be on Sundays; if you book a birthday or corporate event after 4PM, you will feel the Xtreme Bowling Experience!
Cosmic bowling is most popular at night especially since a dance club atmosphere is created. Many centres offer this kind of bowling on events or special occasions like New Years or Halloween which can be extra fun & exciting.
Bright neon lighting, techno music & bowling in the dark may not be for you if you are a professional bowler – you might find the lights & loud music distracting. In this case it’s best to call the centre & go at a time when regular 10-pin bowling is available. However, if you want to introduce your kids to bowling, cosmic bowling is a fun way to get them to start and enjoy bowling!
If you reside in the Greater Toronto Area (Toronto, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Brampton) check out Planet Bowl for our awesome cosmic “Xtreme” bowling nights. The Xtreme glow in the dark party starts Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm & goes all the way till 2am (Also Sundays at 4-Midnight). If you want to inquire about a bowling party, corporate event or have any general questions feel free to give us a call at 416-695-2695 anytime during our business hours or you can email us at [email protected]
Quite simply put, Xtreme bowling at Planet Bowl is all the fun of a club but with a bowling ball. You really have to try it for yourself to see what it’s all about!
Looking to organize a company party or event? Bowling Parties are your answer!
Running out of fresh and unique ideas for that next corporate event you need to organize? Let’s face it – it’s not always easy to please everyone. You need to find something that is fun, let’s all employees participate and work together as a team irrespective of age, gender and ability and you also need to take care of finer details like food and beverages.
But company group events are more than just about having employees hang out together and have a good time. Corporate team building events serve an important purpose. They are essential to promote employee unity, strengthen interpersonal relationships and build trust within the workplace.
Training programs are a rising trend and are increasingly popular amongst companies today. Organizations realize the need for conducting regular interactive group events to inculcate team building skills. These programs DO NOT have to be formal! Agreed that seminars and discussions about team building, leadership and other important work topics have their place but a practical, interactive fun experience will no doubt deliver an unforgettable experience.
Corporate Bowling Parties
If you’re looking to organize a corporate group event for your company, look no further than bowling parties. Bowling parties are not only entertaining; they’re a great way to socialize, encourage group interaction and are made to fit your corporate budget.
With bowling parties, size does not matter! As a small company or a large corporation, you can organize bowling parties and events for your employees. It is advised to make a reservation with your local bowling centre to reserve some lanes for the party in advance. You can reserve your bowling lanes online here at Planet Bowl. You can also order food like fresh hot pizzas and cool beverages to feed your staff.
Organizing teams and randomly assigning people from different levels of the company to each team is a great idea to help co-workers to get to know each other. Inter-staff tournaments add an element of competition making them highly entertaining. One of the plus points of bowling is that it is a sport with a very small learning curve making it easy to learn and play. People of any age, skill and even physical disabilities can bowl.

How To Make Bowling Parties Extra Fun
Kids’ birthday parties in Etobicoke or anywhere become a little fancier year after year, and fancy may easily imply pricey. Holding kids birthday parties in Etobicoke or elsewhere don’t actually have to be costly to be enjoyable. One particular birthday celebration concept that won’t break the bank is bowling parties!
Here are 3 ways to have personalized bowling parties for kids’ birthday parties in Etobicoke or anywhere else:
- Entertaining BEFORE bowling parties start
- Begin the imaginative component of your celebration prior to heading to the bowling alley. A great idea could be to check local party or arts and craft stores for bowling related trinkets. If you are organizing a kids bowling party, find some low-cost bowling t-shirts for the children to put on or find some good iron-on transfers and assist them to iron on their very own bowling images before heading to your local bowling center. This is sure to get the kids ready and in the mood to play.
- Themed pre-game goodies
- With regard to snacks before you head out to the alley, use the shape of the bowling ball to fit the theme. As we all know bowling balls are round, much like cakes, cookies and muffins. Bowling parties can start at home with you making sweet treats with 3 holes to mimic a bowling ball. For kids birthday parties in Etobicoke you’ll have no issue with planning the refreshments when you’re at the alley. At Planet Bowl, our kids bowling packages come with tasty and delicious food that is sure to please young and old! Just contact us to make a reservation and arrange bowling parties as per your convenience.
- Decoration for Bowling Parties
- Accentuate the bowling lanes to create the party mood! It’s best to have a few people go a little ahead of time and set up the bowling lanes so everything is ready when the birthday boy or girl and the guests arrive. Several balloons and a nice sign help inform visitors that a celebration is happening. You might even find some bowling balloons to arrange by your bowling lanes, or just use round balloons in different colours. To get the best experience, don’t simply just decorate your kids bowling parties with typical party decor. Ensure you do it right with a bowling parties theme – this is sure to get all the guests fired up to get involved and every person is sure to have a great time!
