At $3.75 per game plus a $3.75 shoe rental fee on weekdays from 9am-5pm, you can’t beat Shell Lanes’ prices. Yes, this bowling alley is located outside of Manhattan and isn’t as classy looking as Bowlmor, Lucky Strike, or Chelsea Piers but if you’re on a budget and just have the urge to knock down some pins, jump on the F train to Avenue X to find Shell Lanes just a couple blocks away.

If you’re a weekend early bird, Shell Lanes has unlimited bowling from 9am-12pm for just $18. But be sure to get there a little early to make sure you get a lane.

Shell Lanes is also equipped with a bar, a small cafe, and a Pro Shop for you pros out there! You’re sure to have a good time at Shell Lanes. And when you’re done bowling, why not head over to Coney Island? It’s just a short subway ride away!
