If life is just a bowl of cherries, then duckpin bowling is a life of launching three-pound cherry-flavored gumballs. Experience life's sweetest pastime with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two hours of bowling, shoe rental for up to six people, a grande platter of nachos, and a pitcher of Pepsi at Glen Burnie Bowling. This Groupon cannot be redeemed during Glow Bowling.
Glen Burnie Bowling's pinmeisters have kept the traditional Baltimore art of duckpin bowling alive for more than 50 years, maintaining a proud legacy of smaller, easy-to-throw balls and lighter pins. Bowl for two hours with a posse of up to six people, outfitted with rental shoes and a smattering of tossable orbs of destruction. Celebrate duckpin decimation and gutter-dodging throws with Pepsi-pitcher toasts, and fuel continued dominance with a grande platter of nachos from the GB Ducks Cafe. Duckpin bowling proffers an alternative to regular bowling and its cumbersome boulderesque balls and depleted uranium pins. The light, small balls are easier for kids to throw, making for enhanced family bowling and less time spent waiting for a ten-pound orb to finally creep to the end of the lane.
Glen Burnie Bowling Center
Things are a little smaller at Glen Burnie Bowling Center, though the facility itself encompasses 30 lanes and a full-service snack bar, named GB Ducks Cafe. The petite objects in question are the pins and balls themselves. Glen Burnie celebrates the tradition of duckpin bowling, which incorporates lighter pins and smaller, easy-to-throw balls that almost never hatch into dragons. The objects collide during league games and open play. The smaller equipment also accommodates kids, and young bowlers can start playing in leagues as early as four years old. The coaches and instructors who oversee these programs hold certifications from the National Duckpin Youth Association.
