Taken the kiddos bowling in Singapore? Bowling is a great family-friendly activity. Some alleys even have kid-friendly features like bumpers and ramps for the littlest bowlers!
Bowling in Singapore makes a fun indoor sport that’s also a family bonding activity, especially when it’s raining or too hot to enjoy an outdoor park or playground. Older kids love the independence of having their own bowling lane with a few friends so it makes a super birthday party venue but it’s also a fun activity for little kids as young as three. Some of the most family-friendly bowling in Singapore offers side bumpers for kids, ramps as well as children’s bowling shoes.
Here’s our pick of the best kid-friendly bowling in Singapore!

Best bowling in Singapore for kids:
1. Orchid Bowl
First time taking the kids bowling in Singapore? Orchid Bowl has the essential side bumpers for kids to bowl (otherwise that ball ends up in the gutter more often than not!) and these bumpers can be programmed to only come up when it’s the kids’ turn to bowl. Orchid Bowl stands out from other bowling alleys in Singapore thanks to the Dragon Ramps (available as part of a 1hr bowling package). These plastic dragon-shaped ramps allow kids to slide their ball down so it has more chance to roll straight down the bowling alley and knock some pins down (and it also means kids don’t have to swing the ball which is heavy for little fingers!). Orchid Bowl offers smaller 5-pound bowling balls for little kids and also sports glow-in-the-dark bowling. Orchid Bowl, 1 Orchid Club Road Orchid Country Club #02-37 Singapore 769162, Tel: (+65) 6759 4448, www.orchidbowl.com.sg
2. Singapore Bowling
Singapore Bowling has a top-notch bowling alley with 38 bowling lanes. This spot is actually the bowling centre of choice for the National bowlers – expect it to be pretty snazzy! There are 6 lanes for bowling with kids with bumpers and ramps (book ahead).

Other Singapore bowling alleys to try
- Book ahead to reserve a bowling lane with side bumpers or for very small kids the Dragon Ramp at Orchid Bowl is really the best!
- If the bowling alley doesn’t have shoes small enough for your child to rent (usually around $1.50/pair) they will allow kids to wear their own shoes – just make sure these are covered like trainers (no flip flops/crocs etc). You must wear socks when renting bowling shoes.
- Looking for a deal? The cheapest bowling is at Westwood Bowl at CSC Bukit Batok $4/game for non-members. If you are set on a particular spot, check out when their off peak hours are for the cheaper prices. NTUC Plus! and Passion cards may score you a cheaper bowling deal too.
- Many bowling alleys offer party packages for those looking to celebrate birthdays without the mess at home!
