Need a break from Chuck E Cheese?
My family and I have attended over 4 kids' birthday parties at Tucson Bowl and each was was a hit. Upon arrival, the kids were given bowling shoes of their size after telling the attendant. Then they were instructed by the parents to bowl. I believe they (the birthday person, family, and friends) have the lanes for 2 hours minimum. Then the employees who's the mommy/daddy helper comes over with whatever food mommy/daddy ordered. This is usually pizza and sodas. They also have cake. By this time, the kids are hungry and thirsty. You'll have enough time to open presents. If time permits, or mommy/daddy buys more bowling time, you may bowl some more. At the end, the attendees are given goodie bags by Tucson Bowl. Of course, this is based on how many kids mommy/daddy paid for to attend the party.
For anyone who's not a bowler, there's an arcade room and a TV room. I believe they still have a Karaoke Night, too!
