Games in Rio – Bowling, Darts and Go Kart
LAre you looking for where you can play games in Rio, like darts or bowling? Or perhaps you want to go Go-karting? It’s nice to try to get out once a week to play pool with friends for exemple. Go to our Pool in Rio page to learn more about that.
Boliche (in Portuguese) is not a really big game in Rio. You will find it in some of the shopping malls. It is more for the wealthier and it is quite expensive. The connection with American culture is strong. The place we have listed is in Barra de Tijuca and accessible by bus from Zona Sul.
