Bowling + Family Fun
In Austin and Temple

A better experience has arrived. Spare Time Texas is here to bring you clean, fun family entertainment the Texas way – Big and bold!

Bowl better with our well-maintained lanes, modern amenities, and fun, programmable mini-games. Want to play “HORSE”, bowling-style? You can do that! Want to practice with a specific pin setup, like a 7-10 split? You can do that! Want to enjoy a Texas craft cocktail and made-to-order, gourmet sandwich while you bowl? You can do that! The possibilities are endless!

When you need a break from bowling or even if you’re just not that into bowling, give our 2-story Laser Tag arena or Game Room with 50+ unique arcade experiences a try. Earn some tickets. Win some cool prizes. Have a drink at the bar. Enjoy a family meal in our restaurant. Watch some live sports. There’s so much to do!

Make us your regular hangout. Spare Time Texas offers a wide array of bowling clubs and leagues with an outstanding community of bowlers. We even offer Free Bowling Lessons to young beginners looking to advance their technique and get into the sport. With specials offered every day of the week, there’s always an opportunity to maximize your fun. Join our meClub to stay informed of exciting special events, exclusive offers, and more!

Need to host a party or liven up an offsite meeting? We have event space for that! Booking an event at our center means that all of you and your guest’s needs are covered from start to finish. Try our expertly executed birthday party packages, our professionally facilitated team-building events, or something more laid back and informal. Whether you’re inviting 5 guests or 500, we’ll make sure it’s a famously fun and unforgettable event!
