This is the perfect place to go spend some quality time with your friends and family and soak up the experience.
We all wish we could spend more time with our families. This is especially true for people with kids. Going to an aquarium is always fun because kids love them. Bowling is fun too, especially as a family activity! But, have you ever thought of how it would be with the two of them combined? No, this is not me messing with your imagination, there actually is a place where you can enjoy a game of bowling at a place that has a restaurant, bar, and a 12-lane bowling alley, and it is all underwater in Bridgeport, Connecticut, according to a report by Timeout.
The beautiful place is called Uncle Bucks Fish Bowl and Grill, and it looks like the place to hang out with your kids. The best part is that it's not just your kids that will have fun. It's designed in a way that everyone who visits Uncle Bucks will surely have a lot of fun! It's like an indoor aquarium where you can actually go bowling and have stingrays and sea turtles as witnesses to your game!
Kids have a lot of career choices growing up. If they want to be mermen or mermaids or even marine biologists, this is where you need to take them to! The bright and shiny undersea decor delivers perfectly with themed lighting, backdrops, custom bowling balls that look like an octopus or mermaid. It also comes with wooden lanes having faux sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater critters. This really is too good to be true!
So, if you're really looking at planning a mini-vacay, or a full-blown extended family holiday here, and don't know anything about it, don't fret! We've got all the deets here! You can bowl from Monday to Friday (11 am–5 pm at $25/hour per lane). It is also available from Sunday – Thursday after 5 pm ($30/hr per lane) and Fri 5 pm–Sunday until 5 pm ($35/hr per lane) (at the time of publication, prices may vary!).
Also, it's important to note that not more than eight people will be assigned a single lane. You will have to pay $4.25 per pair of shoes rented and $3.50 per pair of socks. If bowling is not really your thing, but you still want to visit this beautiful place and experience it, then don't worry, you will not feel left out. There is also billiards available at this location!
"Many full lanes of bowling offer a unique underwater ocean experience! Custom bowling balls that bear the likeness of octopus, mermaids, camouflage and more! “Dock” wooden lanes feature underwater scenery of sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and other saltwater species! Handpainted murals and fish hanging from the ceiling bring everything together for a deep sea dive like no other. You have to see it to believe it!" the website description reads.
Ever since the place has been opened up, it's been flocking with visitors hoping to get a sight of this marvelous place.

The amazing underwater bowling alley also comes with amazing food and beverage menu! Their food menu has a decent list of American fare, and if you're in need of some alcohol ( only for the adults) then there's an island-themed bar for you to get yourself a cocktail or two. An entire day with too many people can get a bit stressful, we know. It is an aquarium, so you can also pick some tropical fishes swimming in a 750-gallon saltwater aquarium.
According to Des Moines Register, Uncle Buck's general manager Kyle Holdorf at Altoona said that his themed arcade sits in the former dining area and will have 50 gaming machines. Machines will include games like Tomb Raider, Jurassic Park, and Halo. For the old school people in the group, there are other classic arcade games like basketball shooting machines and skee ball. "A lot of the stuff you would expect in an arcade, we'll be featuring," Holdorf said. Time to plan out a holiday!
