Brooklyn Bowl upped the alley ante when it opened, and now Bowlmor Lanes throws in its chips with this Coney Island–themed venue. By day, Carnival is a family-friendly spot with face painters and concession stands selling cotton candy and hot dogs. By night, it becomes a bar, furnished with both an actual dunk tank and a drink named after one: a $70, two-gallon monster of vodka, Malibu Rum, gin and juice.
