Become a human bowling ball and win 5k, because human bowling is now a thing

What a time to be alive. 

The twisted minds behind Melbourne's mini-golf bar have turned their attention to a new novelty: a bowling alley in which you, dear reader, act as the bowling ball. 

Yep, human bowling is an actual thing. And it's about time too. Who hasn't at least once in their life wanted to throw themselves down the lane just to see what would happen? 

No? Just me then. 

Anyhoo, here's the gist of what'll go down. Punters nominate themselves to be one of ten human bowling bowls before hurtling down a giant slip and slide. As for the winner, besides from eternal glory, they'll also score a $5,000 cash prize. 

At the end of the night, the lane will be opened up for everyone to slide down. 

And before you say, "I'm going to need a solid drink before doing that", don't stress. There'll be free vodka Red Bulls all night. There's also pizza and DJs, too.  

For a shot at winning 5k, becoming a human bowling ball, and finally winning your father's respect -- follow this link. It's all going down at Strike King Street Wharf on March 15.
