Glow-in-the-dark bowling alley lanes at Monster Mini Golf.

Mini bowling is a scaled-down version of traditional bowling. It consists of a shorter lane raised 15” off the floor, with smaller pins and lighter bowling balls, making it great for little and big monsters alike.

Since it’s well suited for all ages and sizes and easy to play, and Monster Mini Golf is a family-friendly location, it only made sense that we added some bowling lanes to our facilities, adding a fun twist!

Our glow-in-the-dark bowling alley adds an extra element to your neon adventure with us. Once you’ve completed 18 holes of monster madness on our indoor mini golf course, you can bowl as many frames as you’d like!

The best part? No bowling experience is necessary! However, we have some bowling tips for beginners and how to avoid common bowling mistakes. So, let’s dive in and go over how to play and what to avoid

How To Play Mini Bowling

The goal is similar to regular bowling. For each frame, you have two tries to knock down all ten pins set in a triangle shape.

  • There is no limit to the number of people in your party
  • There are five frames to a game
  • Each player gets two tries per frame to knock all ten pins down
  • The player with the highest score wins!

Games last about four minutes on average per person, making swiping your game card for another round easy!

Common Bowling Mistakes and How To Avoid Them

1. Poor Approach

Incorrect footwork or inconsistent approach leads to a lack of accuracy and power in your throw. You’ll want to be mindful of where your feet are when you approach the lanes and use your legs to help power your throw rather than solely relying on arm strength.

2. Wrist Break

A lot of bowlers bend their wrists when they’re holding a ball, and this can cause inaccuracy. Keep your wrist straight and firm. You can ensure that every throw goes where intended with a little focus.

3. Incorrect Bowling Technique

Learning a good bowling technique can be tricky, but once you master it, you’ll always be stable at the foul line, which will help with your overall ball release. Finding your center position for your slide foot is critical. Stepping in as you enter your slide will help your foot regain center position.

4. Lack of Focus

It’s easy to get distracted, especially if others are bowling around you. Be mindful of your approach — especially where your feet and legs are — and ensure a good follow-through by keeping your head down and eyes on the target.

5. Ignoring Lane Conditions

The lane condition can change throughout the game, so keep in mind that if you’re having difficulty, try changing your starting position. A different angle to your approach may help make up for any lane conditions you experience.
