Main Event, the fastest growing social and family entertainment brand in the country, is celebrating National Bowling Day by inviting guests to attempt to break the world record for “the fastest time to arrange 10 bowling pins,” plus FREE bowling with any bowling purchase

PLANO, Texas (August 6, 2020) – In celebration of National Bowling Day on Saturday, Aug. 8, Main Event is offering everyone in America the chance to set a bowling world record and win FREE bowling at Main Event for a YEAR.

The current fastest time is 31.60 seconds, with the guest that sets the fastest time across all Main Event centers being crowned the winner. The contest is available from the time each location opens until 2 p.m.
