At the turn of the 20th century, bowling alleys routinely locked their doors for the summer, forcing bowlers to brainstorm alternatives. And so, in the early 1900s, a group of bowlers decided to tweak their pastime to accommodate off-season play, shrinking both bowling balls and pins. Modified rules allowed bowlers to roll their scaled-down balls three times per turn. And upon impact, the lighter-weight balls caused pint-size pins to skitter like a flock of ducks. Thus, duckpin bowling was born.

The accessible sport spread throughout the world and, near the peak of its popularity, found a home at Johnson's Duckpin Lanes in 1955. After undergoing renovations in 2009, the alley's synthetic lanes continue to delight duckpin bowlers all year long. The alley also entertains guests with an arcade, onsite snack bar, as well as personalized birthday parties, which unfold on weekdays and during weekend sessions of Glo & Bowl.

Designed specifically for kids 12 and under, Monkey Joes is lined wall-to-wall with inflatables. Little ones leap across slides, jumps, and obstacle courses while enjoying a combination of fun and fitness, much like bench pressing a comedian. A team of trained staff members supervises the youngsters, so parents––who receive complimentary entry––can take a load off in one of the facility's leather chairs or work with staffers to throw the perfect birthday party in a private room.

And while fun may be their forte, these professionals name safety as their number-one priority. They corral kids aged 3 and under in a toddler-specific area and––when the day is done––use a micro-misting device to spray a safe, non-toxic cleaning solution that eliminates 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses on contact.
