Saturday, August 11, is National Bowling Day, and Jake’s Unlimited is celebrating with free bowling at its just-opened mini bowling attraction. Any guest who mentions the cheat code "free bowl" at the door receives a free mini-bowling experience added to any admissions package. Mini-bowling takes the fun and excitement of regular bowling and delivers it in a compact size featuring shorter lanes, mini-pins and smaller, lighter bowling balls suitable for both kids and adults.
From 7 to 9:30 p.m., guests are invited to shine their own flashlights along the self-paced trails to capture the night-blooming plants and animals that chirp, whirr and whisper in the desert after dark. The nocturnal garden explorers can experience a different adventure every night through activities promoting play, learning and adventure. Admission is $12.95 to $24.95.
