Brunswick Zone has been a trusted name in bowling for more than a century, whether the occasion is a night out with friends or an afternoon with the kids. Patrons can enjoy a game of traditional bowling fun while sampling snack bar treats, or they can discover the excitement and interactive entertainment of Brunswick Cosmic Bowling – a full-sensory sports experience featuring black-lit lanes, dance-worthy music, and whirling neon lights.
36 shiny, synthetic lanes await bowlers of all ages at Apple Valley Bowl, each one equipped with automatic scoring and bumpers to accommodate the youngsters. The alley's size and convenient extras—such as the onsite snack bar—make Apple Valley a popular spot for birthday parties and league bowlers, though small groups will also find special events scheduled throughout the week. And, for serious bowlers looking to improve their game, the attached Bowlwinkle's pro shop stocks everything they need to increase their pin-shattering prowess, except for pin homing devices.

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.
