LOCATION-HOW TO REACH HURGHADA BOWLING CENTER?
Hurghada Bowling center is located in El Kawthar area, near El Mamsha and Sindbad hotel (google maps location, click here).
Most of the taxis know Bowling center and bowling street in Hurghada because there is only one bowling center in the city. So it’s not very hard to find.
OPENING HOURS-WHEN TO VISIT BOWLING CENTER?
Opening hours daily from 04.00 pm (16.00) till 02.00 am.
Fridays are most likely to be very busy there because it’s a weekend for Egyptians. Most of the offices and banks are closed on Fridays in Egypt and people go out with their families.

Last time I visited Hurghada Bowling Center on Sunday around 06.00 (18.00) o’clock.
It was a good time to visit; there weren’t too many people around. Food came fast and there was space for running and playing. Just to clarify, I wasn’t the one running around the bowling center. But there is room for that, in case you like it.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM HURGHADA BOWLING CENTER-MY VISIT
Actually, this time I wasn’t even able to bowl myself because I had to keep company for my baby girl. For the smallest kids, bowling is not the best or safest activity.
Imagine a toddler with a bowl running on the track! For sure you might see it in Egypt.
Luckily, there are some other activities for the smaller kids in Hurghada Bowling Center.
There is a place, let us call it a playing corner, this is a small area where kids can play different games (picture below). One round cost 15 Egyptian pounds LE. (in price list baby food coin). First, you buy a coin (counter/token) from the cashier for 15 LE. You put the coin inside a machine and enjoy. Simple and easy!
My daughter sat on this machine below for four rounds, and one round was quite long. She wasn’t happy to leave after four long rounds, but I was.
You can also play PlayStation, air hockey or a car race. Here is a price list is from 2019.
There is also an area outside with tables and kids playing area.
Parents can have coffee while kids playing outside. Excellent!
In case you get hungry after bowling and playing, you find a big restaurant/cafeteria in Hurghada Bowling Center. You can order anything from spaghetti to burgers.
I had a cheeseburger with french fries and coleslaw (picture below).
It was a very good cheeseburger meal for 36 Egyptian pounds (to convert, click here). Price and quality meet in this meal. Even, if you go with a big family, you won’t be ripped off with these prices.
The dessert menu looked delicious, but unfortunately, I didn’t have time to have a dessert this time. Next time.
NEXT: MY PERSONAL BOWLING STORY
HOW DID I BECOME THE WORST BOWLER AFTER BEING THE BEST?
At the end a personal bowling story from Hurghada Bowling Center.
Though I didn’t bowl last time, I have been bowling there A LOT. Years ago, I spent one month in Hurghada working in constructions (this is another story to tell someday) with my friend.
In the evenings, my friend and I, went bowling and we became very good at it. Moreover, we thought we were professionals.
Bowling was so easy, and we both were so good at it.
After I flew back home, I wanted to show my new bowling skills to my friends back home. We went bowling and I sucked. I was the worst bowler ever.
-But I was good in Egypt -Yeah, right. No one believed me. For years I have been thinking: -What happened? Why bowling is so easy in Egypt?
Now I know. Last time in Hurghada bowling center it hit me! Lanes are shorter here in Egypt! This is why my bowling is much harder back home.
What is the conclusion here? From now on, the only place I bowl is Hurghada bowling center. That’s where I’m at my best!
What about you? Are you good at bowling? In or outside Egypt?
