Rosemount Bowl in North Perth is a bowling institution, and despite its precarious location above a pool hall and near a tattoo parlour, it is very kid-friendly and offers great birthday packages.



Current prices (May 2016) for the kidsí party packages are $22 per child for one game, and $27 per child for two games. There doesnít seem to be a minimum or maximum number and the parties would be suitable for children aged 6 or older, although kids as young as three or four could certainly bowl with the assistance of an adult.

There are a number of features which make Rosemount a great party for kids, and not just the fact that bowling shoes look much cuter in the small sizes, and they have Velcro flaps instead of laces for the littlies.



There are Ďball wallsí in each lane which you can flip up to prevent the balls going in the gutters and there are also special ramps for children who donít have the strength (or inclination) to lift the heavy balls. Simply line the ramp up in the right direction, place the ball at the top and give it a good push.

Add to this the fact that the entire space is lit with fluoro and disco lights and there is a juke box, arcade games and video screens.



The party package includes the game, shoe hire, crisps and drinks during the game, and then a sit down meal afterwards with your choice of burgers, hot dogs, pizza or chicken nuggets (one choice per party). You also get big bowls of hot chips, ice-cream and a lolly tub for each child.

The servings are generous and tasty and everything is done for you, from the party table decorated with age and gender appropriate decorations, to the fact that you donít even need to provide party bags. The staff keep an eye on your bowling games and your food is timed to be ready when you finish your last frame.



While a bowling party might seem an obvious choice for older kids, they also work just as well for younger children, as there is plenty of space available for parents who need to stay (including a space with comfy couches), catering can be arranged for parents and there is a fully licenced bar as well.

The downside is that since it is located upstairs, it is not very pram friendly, and there is limited space for pram parking inside anyway.

We handed out party bags with an assortment of glow sticks (necklaces, earrings, glasses etc) at the beginning of the party and bought some cupcakes so we could sing happy birthday, but otherwise everything was sorted for us.

Bring some $1 and $2 coins for the arcade games (save your money for the awesome robot game near the bar) and donít forget to remind your guests to bring their socks.
