Just had a birthday party organized beautifully by the Assistant manager Theresa. Her and her staff were thoughtful and well verse in the art of customer service. The two individuals who were assigned to help us, Marcus and JJ, were great. I appreciated both. All of our party guests were delighted with the bowling and the food (about 30 kids with a few adults). I would not hesitate to revisit this bowling ally and plan on doing so. We had a great time. Thank you.

I went here for my best friend’s birthday and The lanes totally broke down on us before anyone got to bowl a second game. So we had to comletely stat over. It turns out that While we were down I had to get a new bag for my ball and 1 of the guys in the pro shop, I think his name was Stan, helped me out. Management is decent they could be a little better in Assiting us. Overall its nice but could use a little more FUN. I would give it a 4 out of 10

New Management and Monitors. Getting a lot better. Thumb up here also.

Comment Date: 3/8/2011 Name: A Bowler
AMF should leave their good Managers in place. The new one is clueless. The Manager – Tammie Bates was finally getting the place in shape and they got rid of her! She was getting rid of the old dead weight. The twins had run the place down. Seems like AMF wants people that have not a clue so that they will be their puppets. Bring back Tammie Bates!

its a lot better
2 thumbs up

last stop on my tour of DC. New manager, better operation than before . What happened to the “twins”…never saw them more than a foot apart.

New GM….hopefully this one will actually show up for work. Lots of room to improve. Good luck

Comment Date: 7/1/2008 Name: Anonymous
Removed the pro shop.I guess AMF needed more room for food supplies.Just turn it into a restaurant and be done with it.No decent management, crappy scores, high prices and poor service:what more could anyone possibly want?

Comment Date: 5/25/2008 Name: Looking for a home
I guess AMF just posts operating hour signs for fun.Two Saturdays in a month I went here only to find them closing at Midnight instead of the posted 1 am.I guess the managers don’t care if they upset customers.They were busy both nights but closed anyway. Where is the supervisor for this place? Maybe they should come out on a weekend to see what is going on? Good news,the crappy food manager is gone can only hope the manager is next.Maybe then it will return to being a decent place to bowl.Probably not, it will still be run by AMF.

Comment Date: 4/21/2008 Name: Anonymous
Went there for the last time.The lanes are horrible for lefties for the first time ever.Nobody seems to care. Manager never in, food manager is a joke.I’m going to Greenway where they just spent a ton of money.It’s beautiful and the lanes play “fair” for both right and left handed bowlers.

Comment Date: 4/19/2008 Name: Anonymous
Some nice improvements…too bad the managers spend more time with each other than the customers…Get rid of the stool behind the desk.

Anyone ever seen any leagues at the National bowling Stadium……uhhhhh NO! ! ! ! AMF shoud shut this hole down……remodel it to cater tournement play only i mean christ you share or rather own the property a farting hotel sits on and share the parking lot……you have everthing you could need in one square mile and you right off a major highway……AMF get your heads out of eachothers butts and see what im seeing and you will also agree it need attention! ! ! ! Because for gods sake you sure as heck cant keep leagues in there! ! !

Pretty bad that someone considers a donut shop as a good reason to go somewhere. What was that line about bowlers in Kingpin? “It’s such an honor to be in the presence of so many great athletes.”

Comment Date: 11/10/2009 Name: love to bowl
last time I checked the “owners” were the corporation known as AMF….too bad about Krispy Kreme they made the trip there worthwhile. I see the center is doing very well…stop by on a monday and try to get a lane after 6pm…oh that’s right, they are closed due to a lack of interest.I guess Bowl America has lanes.

Comment Date: 9/24/2009 Name: charles a
This is one of the sites for the 2009 TNBA Eastern Regional. This center will host the men’s doubles. The other sites for the Eastern Regional are: AMF Woodlawn Lanes(All Teams); AMF Kings Point Lanes(Women’s Doubles); and AMF Dundalk Lanes(Mixed Doubles).

Comment Date: 8/20/2009 Name: anon
AMF Centers don’t have “owners.” Do you think it’s a franchise? Go bowl at Bowl America, hopefully they’ve been able to pass their USBC lane certification, they failed the current one.

Comment Date: 8/20/2009 Name: Anonymous
Uh, Krispy Kreme is closed. Guess you didnt get the memo about that.

Comment Date: 7/16/2009 Name: love to bowl
Unbelievable.Recycled employees.Ms. RUDE (Heather) is back.I guess it helps to be related to the GM.I guess nepotism is alive and well at AMF.The center is in need of new ownership.I have a great suggestion…close the bowl and EXPAND the donut shop!!!

the pro shop at this house is the best one in glen burnie.ihighly recommend it

This place rocks yes its money but the service is good stop talking crap and go some where else

“Gee” Probably doesn’t work there anymore if they were employed before they converted the center into a 300 brand location. They rarely, if ever, retain staff if the center turns into a 300 location.

Comment Date: 12/30/2009 Name: Anonymous
I agreee with the idea why it decided to change when we did so well as Shady grove lanes! I HOPE that goes beck to the origianl “Shady Gorve Lanes” like it was before now!!!!!

Does Gee still work @ this Alley?

Comment Date: 6/3/2009 Name: Anonymous
They took out all the arcade games and made everything look like a lounge. You no longer pay up front, your entire party is calculated together and they will only split the check once. They said it is for the tax reasons. What? Hello! 6% of $15 twice is the same as 6% of $30 once… Lame, this place used to be a lot of fun and that’s all gone now. The new style and atmosphere reminds me of a strip club; and I’m not joking at all.

Comment Date: 4/21/2008 Name: Anonymous
What in the world is AMF thinking? Loyal league customers are shown the door just so AMF can (hopefully)make more money? Good luck. I hope everyone BOYCOTTS this place. See me at Gaithersburg .

Comment Date: 7/14/2007 Name: denny h
AMF shady grove is a nice bowling alley with pretty decent staff it seems like everytime i go there theres some one new behind the counter at the register. Food is pretty good. Lanes Are usually on the dryer side but, before league i would say its a true medium oil shot. Machines seem to break down once in a while ive had to move several times cause of the ball return or the pins werent being spotted properly. As for going there for open play i would have to say this make sure you bring a ball for dry and lighter conditions nothing really aggressive is needed at this house nothing more then a absolute inferno or ebonite crossfire just examples for equipment choices. Another thing is the pin carry it can get tricky getting the corners out sometimes it seems like the carry can be tough or stubborn but overall nice house synthetic lanes.

Comment Date: 7/7/2007 Name: Anonymous
great staff, great pro shop, and the lanes are always true. this AMF is a medium oil house, but they only get oil once a day, so expect drier conditions in the afternoon

Comment Date: 12/22/2006 Name: L
This is a nice place with very nice and courteous staff. Synthetic lanes very nice. Pro shop is run like an old mom and pop store. Ridiculous

Comment Date: 11/11/2006 Name: ..
but what you dont see is what is behind the counters…bugs and water problems..its just gross

Comment Date: 3/12/2006 Name: Anonymous
Went for the cosmic bowl, the DJ needs to learn how to choose a good flow of songs he was really jumping around.
Warning: If you hate hip-hop, you probably should not go! Maybe management should do like a hip-hop night, dance night, etc.

Comment Date: 8/6/2005 Name: rossta
Place is good, could use more balls and a touch up here and there. Good price and atmosphere and rarely a wait without it ever being empty which is always nice.

Comment Date: 4/4/2005 Name: bowling mom

Nice place to bowl with a good pro shop. They also offer lessons and have great coaches.

Comment Date: 10/13/2004 Name: Melissa L Dupree
Nice place to bowl. I especially like cosmic bowl on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ is fabulous. You can’t bowl because you want to just dance on the lanes. I am going to spread the word about this place.

Comment Date: 7/26/2004 Name: bowled over
Nice lanes. Lots of fun and good location. Restrooms are gross … and need renovation. Overall the place needs a good cleaning. Especially the floors and carpets.

Comment Date: 5/24/2004 Name: Anonymous
I agree they definitely could use more balls but it is really a great place to bowl.

Comment Date: 2/6/2004 Name: Anonymous
This place isn’t that bad…located in a good area it’s almost always crowded. Could use better service and more bowling balls. Lanes are almost always spotless…There is a Best Buy, Home Depot and Red Lobster right near it too.

Comment Date: 1/24/2004 Name: Anonymous
It’s a good bowling area. Good lanes. The lanes are pretty fast. The area around is good, there is a Red Lobster next to it and a Best Buy.

I dont like how this center practices business.5 dollar special month of January mon-fri for 2 hours. They upped it to 8 dollars in the middle of Jan.Still cheap but very ignorant on behalf of management for pulling this stunt.Managers dont belong in this business. Not helping the game !!

Comment Date: 12/7/2011 Name: Dave Borders
Practice rates during day awesome. Decent shot overall but staff makes you feel a little unwelcome.
Would practice again there but dont like the female manager there she seems rude.

Comment Date: 3/23/2011 Name: here for now…..
The brightest spot in this center right now is Cheryl.. she knows her stuff and is very very friendly. As for the rest of the staff, the kid at the front desk (I think his name is Travis) has the personality of the counter her constantly leans on, the new manager (Maybe Max) you never see him, he is a ghost. Everything is changing (and not for the good) and I am starting to see the old Southdale again. They dont care about the bowlers any more. Give me your money and get out is how I see it now…. COME ON AMF get back to the managers that care about the leagues and the bowlers…

Comment Date: 3/17/2011 Name: Jason….Thats all you need to know! ! !
I have heard that the guy who drilled there before he sold it to Marty is drilling again and if you ask around you could get his cell and get the same equipment as any pro shop can!And prob alot cheaper! ! ! !

Comment Date: 3/15/2011 Name: AKA No one special
As far as the Pro Shop in the center, they do not know how to speake to people, have given them several chances to redeam themselves and well thats not happening. Very poor business people…. As the center goes, it has improved 100%, they really need to bring Shirley back the new manager thinks he is special and is not. The staff there is very helpful and polite. I have been ther through the lowest of lows and now they are rebuilding and doing a wonderful job. Congrats to AMF Southdale, welcome back…..

Comment Date: 3/12/2011 Name: Better Ball Driller! ! ! !
Charlie and Marty good ball drillers……Please im laughing so hard…….Ask ***** who drilled her ILLEGAL BALL and several other I have checked! ! ! ! Anyone who gets thier stuff drilled there should take it to someone and have the weights checked before they decide to take it to a tourney!

Comment Date: 12/11/2010 Name: southdale s*cks
what kind of house pattern is this?the lane machine broke last week and they just now supposedly get it fixed but i dont think you can call it fixed.heavy oil from gutter to gutter all the way to the pins.bowl america is your best bet,new pins and a new lane oiler.sweet,sweet victory bowl america.

Comment Date: 9/23/2010 Name: Jimi
Boy has this alley really turned around. It has been a little while since I was there and boy did I get a big surprise. The new manager, Shirley, really seems to care about this center and the customers. Her employees are polite and helpful and the center is very clean and friendly. It won’t take me so long to come back. This place has made me want to come back more.

Comment Date: 7/21/2010 Name: rk
I have left two previous comments about this place.i feel as tho i should leave a third because this alley has really turned around for the better.they have continued the league discount,they redid the approaches and the lane conditioner machine is running properly.bravo amf

Barbara’s legs are without reproach; however, this website is not about Barbara’s great legs, it is about her husbands excellent ball drilling and fair prices!

She had TREMENDOUS stems and he is a great bowler!!!

Comment Date: 12/12/2009 Name: Cal Crosson
The owner of the ball driller section is top rate. I remember his wife had the best legs in the summer leagues at Ft Meade. (LOL) Seriously, he is a great guy and it is a good place to get your bowling ball drilled.

Comment Date: 6/17/2009 Name: Edward N Good DiToto
I just had a bowling ball drilled by Charley, the new ball driller. Excellent. Also I saw the new manager and he is trying to make this a fun and good place to bowl. I will start coming up here and hopefully they will make this a good place again. As I say, the ball driller Charley is top of the line!!!

Comment Date: 5/16/2009 Name: Unknown
I would say that their lanes are about dry to medium b/c i went in there yesterday and I was doing above my average but i bowl at severna park so their lanes are more oiled nd here i can get more reaction but at my home alley i do worse. I guess i just have to get use to my home lanes and then i might say they need to oil more

Comment Date: 4/21/2009 Name: rck
the only problem i have with this bowling center is the machine they use to oil the lanes.my bowling ball practically has sparks coming off the back of it.and thats during leagues when they should be at there most oiliest

Comment Date: 4/14/2009 Name: hope its not true
i heard amf southdale is closing. i recommend going to severna park lanes for tenpins.bring your small kids for duckpins. great place to bowl.

Comment Date: 3/19/2009 Name: Dan

Well where do I start! {Deleted rant} This center has finally found a center manager who is worth something and has every intention of making this a family freindly enviorment and has done a great job so far! Granted the food prices are still up there and I would never recomend you eat here unless your a millionaire but hey you have to give a little to get a little. The lanes have been running at thier best and many sections of lanes have been replaced! I will continue to bowl here, this place is really turnning around for the good of the game. They have even opened a billard room which was the old kiddie room, which will be having APA and possably BCA pool leagues starting next session.All around the center is now moving in the right direction and has the right people in place to be a sucessfull place of business! To all who left…. Give it a try and see for yourself!

AMF should sell this center to the guys who run Severna Park Lanes! They know how to run a center! It’s a shame this place could be Great!

Comment Date: 1/31/2009 Name: Just a few thoughts….
Lately there has been a large push to sell food and drinks from the bar. Sure I see the need, but please provide some much more needed attention to developing a family friendly atmosphere. Promote the good that is happening in your center. What am I talking about?
Bring back some sort of community to the center. Many centers post Season High Scores, i.e. Averages, High Games and High Sets. This center does not do this. This is sad, especially when it comes to the youth bowlers. I remember several years ago they posted season highs for men, women and children atop the lanes. Remember, there are many bowling alleys in the area, and your also competing with little league, peewee football and cheerleading. Might be a good idea to represent and market the Center’s achievements. Post these achievements in the MD Gazzette. Create a website where the adult bowlers and youth bowlers can see their scores. Just a thought………

Can someone tell me why AMF keeps this place OPEN? Incompetent staff, filthy center.

Just had to add my two cents.The center is a joke but it would be worse if Blue ran it….nice man, not a manager.The current manager isn’t the answer ….sloppy,slovenly and ignorant doesn’t make it Good luck to this place

Comment Date: 6/21/2008 Name: CABH
This center is for the birds.Its a shame that the Pro Shop in the center suffers due to lack of bowlers. This center does not promote Leagues as they should, they bring in managers that know nothing. The only good thing going for the center is James Blue. This man knows every facet of the center, excellent with people and is a league organizer. He is over worked and under paid and has no title, this man could turn this place around.

Comment Date: 6/15/2008 Name: rk
bluu is the best thing that place has going for it.they need to invest some money on those lanes,there never oiled right and the machines are constantly breaking down.if anyone that works there reads this,,,please tell your manager to shut down for 1 month and put some money back into that place please for the love of god.

Comment Date: 5/31/2008 Name: JP
Why does AMF continue to pretend to be a bowling chain? Just take out the lanes and put in booths for people to buy burgers and pizza.The CEO came from California pizza, maybe he misses it? This center has gone to the dogs. The new “manager” doesn’t have a clue.Where’s PAT the former mechanic? At least he had the machines running better. One word: BOYCOTT. Until it becomes a bowling center again.

Comment Date: 5/25/2008 Name: Former Customer
Another new manager. Can’t AMF do ANYTHING right? This place is a JOKE and now they bring in a Bigger JOKE as a manager. GOODBYE…. see me at Severna Park

This bowling center needs alot of help. Its really outdated and nasty. The lanes are constantly breaking down and the scorekeeping devices are total dinosaur junk. They constantly raise the prices and do not put back in the facility. They need to start taking care of the customer instead of fatting their pockets. They need to shut down for a month or two in the summer and redo the entire place including new carpet as well as redoing those nasty god forsaking bathrooms. This place needs a total health inspection. The only thing this place has is Mr. Blue and the New Girls there. GOOD LUCK>>>

I’ve been bowling at AMF southdale for 5 years on the saturday morning youth leauge. I will not go back for the 07-08 year. Last season we had 4 teams, we had around 18 my first year. The service is not good, it takes forever to get anything done, the lanes brake all the time. It’s dirty and the people that bowl there for the most part are ignorant. Mr. Blue is the best person that has worked there, he is always nice and has a smile for you, thats what we need these days. Overall, AMF Southdale would be a good place to take your family, but dont waste your money..

Comment Date: 4/3/2007 Name: Anonymous
Total Joke…Don’t waste your money…
Snackbar and Bar is horrible and the service s*cks… The Lanes are a total nightmare…
Let’s not forget the Nasty and Dirty Bathrooms.
Health inspector should shut this dump down…

Not one of the best places in the area to bowl in leagues. Lanes are constantly breaking down and need resurfaced. Also getting service anywhere is very slow. AMF needs to invest some major money in this house.

Comment Date: 9/9/2006 Name: Anonymous
Your right about Mr. Blue, he is one of the better workers. But the food has gotten alot better over the past year.

Comment Date: 7/13/2006 Name: Anonymous
If it werent for James Blue we would never go there. They allow lound and obnoxious behavior and the language used is horrible

Comment Date: 3/7/2006 Name: Anonymous
Been bowling here for years, don’t get in the food line when other people are in it because it will take forever. But the bowling is awesome and it’s a nice friendly enviroment.

The center seems to be SLOWLY making improvments. I did notice the new lane machine they recently purchased. The problem there as with most AMF centers is the constant turnover in management. As soon as you get used to one guy, he is gone and somebody else is there. Why the constant merry go round in this area? Change is often a good thing but this constant change is a sign of deeper problems.

There’s nothing wrong with the lanes at Capitol Plaza, they are spending a few dollars to keep it nice. The staff is ok, they treat me and my family very respectful.

Comment Date: 7/15/2010 Name: Just me
The bowling Center is old and they try to update but not in the right way. The paint over anything that just does not cut it. The staff is not very customer service friendly unless you bowling up there almost daily and the know you. the management has worked to change this appearance of special treatment for those individuals who have nothing to do but hand out at the bowling alley.

another “inner city” center. Bowl America closed all of theirs for a reason. Not too nice of a center. suggest Riverdale instead

Nice place, clean, modern and very upscale. However, way too expensive and very over priced.
Food, drink and games way over the top. We could never make this place a regular place to take the kids. This is only a couple times a year place to go with a big fmaily.

Comment Date: 1/16/2012 Name: Jay Evens
Was there New Years eve.. kids off all ages drinking it up. 21 years of age seemed like it didnt apply there that night. Seemed like adults were buying beer by the tray full and handing it out to all the under 21 kids in their groups.

maybe they get more comments because they are busier.been to other centers that dont care. employees at severna park are very helpful. price wise its your choice to go or not

Comment Date: 12/22/2011 Name: Ashley Brady
i called to see if they had any open lanes. They put me on hold and never came back to take my call. I called back and they asked, can you hold please? before i could say no, i was placed on hold again. They are either understaffed, playing games or just dont want to deal with customer calls. I called glen burnie bowl, they answered and told me they had open lanes. Took the kids there for a couple of games of ducks. Not as nice as severna park. but, all around cheaper and they took my call. food, drinks and couple of games didnt break the bank there. If you neek ducks for the kids to bowl, Glen burnie is the better bet for whats its going to cost you.

Comment Date: 12/14/2011 Name: Anonymous
Very expensive for a family of four. For food, drinks and bowling it is comparative to taking family to a professional football game or baseball game at camdem yards. Unless you show up at some weird time of day when a “special” is going on. Bottom line, very expensive, very over priced, and very over-rated. This place can not be a regular place for you to take your family for a family night out. The place is nice, no doubt. Family value? Think not.

Comment Date: 11/26/2011 Name: Dawn B.
Severna Park Lanes should take a good look at itself and whats going on. No other centers get nearly as much bashing and the trash talking that is going on here. Take a sample look at some other Maryland centers on this site. Not nearly the same trash on any of the others. Why is this? I think Severna Park Lanes management, ownership and employees bring this trash on to them self. In essence, they ask for it. It’s obvious that the management, employees and owners are half the ones posting on here with rebuttals and fueding with the others and thus fueling the fire for more trash and bash on here. Severn Park Lanes, grow up! By posting on here anonymously to argue with others about your center, you’re no better. I’m a local bowler who stumbled across this site by accident looking for aother local bowling web site. After just browsing real quick, I could not believe the stuff I reading. I could not help just to post a quick note of what I was observing.

Yes, they’re nice to you as they are running your credit card three times in hopes you dont notice when the bill comes.

Comment Date: 1/21/2011 Name: Bob
Severna Park lanes is a fun enjoyable place to be. Many people have said that the service isnt that great but you just have to realize that they may also have to be dealing with something else at the same time so you have to be patient. When I go there, they are normally nice and friendly to me. It may be your attitude towards them that make them the way you say they are. All that I know is that the bowling alley itself is a great place to have fun and bowl!

Comment Date: 12/28/2010 Name: Jamal Thomas
The front desk seem to be blunt and cold toward us and i felt it was because we were people of color. Then I watched to see how other people were treated, white people. They were greeted and helped much better then us. It was so obvious. Then I looked around and seen not one African American working there. Pattern? Ive read other posts on here with people that has same problem. You think in this day prejudice is not at stong. What do they care what color I am? I am spending my money there. I guess they were afraid we were going to steal something or hold them up. Thats how they made me feel. We were humiliatted. I guess they dont see much color in Severna Park area in general. We will stick to Glen Burnie area bowling from now on.

Comment Date: 12/22/2010 Name: Mindy
Same with me. I got doulble charged also. I just called credit card company and they handeled it. Use cash only at this place. Once, is a mistake maybe but seems like a tred to me. for each person who notices it, how many people dont? How many persons do you think dont pay attention and thats money their ripping off and goes right in their pocket. I dont know how these people can rest at night knowing they rip people off in hopes they dont notice. Make sure you have your signed recipt and hang on to it or use cash!! They charge too much already. thats not enough?

Comment Date: 12/21/2010 Name: The Kerns Family
They also double charged my credit card also. Twice for same amount same day! I called there and they did not want to help me or look into it either. I had to call Visa and place a fraud alert and dispute for this merhcant.

Comment Date: 12/5/2010 Name: Cathy
Severna Park lanes charged me twice for the same amoumt back to back. Went there to try to straighten it out. Counter was no help and didnt really even kmow how to handle it. Call and spoke to manager or owner and again, they didnt want to help or look into it for me. So i had to go through Citi Bank and dispute the charge. BEWARE. I dont know if this was on purpose or not. But I’m thinking it was now by the way I was treated. BEWARE OF THE SCAM they pull there.
So they are either totally incompetant from the bottom to the top manger or they are scam artist.
Dont take the chance.

They are Jewish! They just held a bowling session open to Jewish people only. They said it was a Hanukka gift for their fellow jew’s in the County. They featured liviot, soofganit and the lighting of the Menorah. There was a story featured in a local news paper this past Saturday with a picture of the owner with the article. Looked very nice.

I’m here to set the story straight! This bowling center is here to Stay! I don’t know where you guys get your information from but I spoke with the owner and he assured me that the bowling center is not going to be a Wawa. These folks operate clean family oriented value priced centers. Furthermore this website has no way of validating anything that is posted so things should not be taken so seriously.

Comment Date: 8/28/2009 Name: Annie B
It’s a bowling alley folks, let’s keep some perspective. For the many, many, families who use SP Lanes for family fun, the place is great. It’s bright, clean, and smoke free. Sure, the food may be a little costly–so eat before you go. We’ve held 3 birthday parties there and have never encountered anything by polite and respectful staff. Our “Birthday Party” helpers have always been cheerful. I’m not sure what all the grousing is about. Support local business or not, but don’t tear them down because they are not the “Ritz Carlton” of the area’s bowling alleys.

Comment Date: 8/20/2009 Name: Matt
I bowl there on Thursdays. I’ll ask tonight about the closing situation. As far as I know, they are still open. Signed up for next season and everything. Roy, if you want a good bowling alley, go to Crofton Bowling Centre. It may be a drive but the quality is SOOO much better than the Severna Park/Greenway/Annapolis franchise. Unfortunatly I was talked into bowling there this season (on Saturday) while I bowl on another league on Thursdays at Crofton. What people who comment on both of these alleys, as well as any other, is that lanes need to be reset. meaning reoiled, stuff in the back needs worked on, etc. It takes alot to maintain an alley. If you walk in and see half the lanes empty but at the desk they say no free lanes, chances are somethings going on in back that needs to be fixed. That being said, I still would not suggest this alley. The staff is lazy. They are usually high school kids or freshmen college kids looking to make a quick buck on an easy job.

Comment Date: 6/19/2009 Name: pin chaser
No. but we’ve been told by management what’s going on and what will happen in the future. some workers will relocate to annapolis and greenway and some will not. they said they recieved a offer for the property and it was one they could not turn down. its going to be a big wawa gas station from what we have been told. i think they are going to relocate the duck pin lanes.

Will the same slack-jaw employees work at the wawa as the lanes?

Comment Date: 6/7/2009 Name: Severna Park
Actually, Wild Goose Holding Company (a.k.a. Wawa) has owned the actual real estate there since the fall of 2008 and was planning to start construction for a Wawa super gas center there in the summer of 2009. Wawa has decided to hold off on redevelopment and construction due to the recent increase of the economic down turn in the begininning of 2009. Wawa has stated that they are going to reevaluate the situation in the fall of 2009 and set a tentative construction and redevelopment time line then.

I don’t get it. Place is ok. It is not that bad. Clean and new equipment and sofa seats. I came in to bowl and not live there. What’s the deal here? Sounds like someone out there is out to close the place? Just what bowling needs … another dark facility. Think about before you say anything like is posted. Been to so many facilities that this place has nothing to be ashamed about. The additions show they care.

these lanes are closed? Too bad

So sad to hear the lanes are closed. The good news is that its reopening soon up the road where amf is, only there keeping the name and the prices are lower and the people are friendly.

They/re tearing Severna Park Lanes down and putting up a wal-mart or a synagogue or something. Now where go to be ripped off and harassed?

Lost, I did not want to advertise my ally on your site and sorry to hear about the foreclosure of Severna Park Lanes. Since your closed AMF of Glen Burnie on Ritchie Highway is great place to fill the void and we never overcharge.

gus, where is amp lanes?if you are the manager, you should make sure you get it right, at least.

Comment Date: 4/7/2009 Name: Anonymous
Hmmmm hey all Severna Park Lanes is CLOSED has been since this past fall, maybe time to quit smoking your breakfast LOL

Whoa Roy you seriously had a bad experience there and you don�t appear to be plugging any other bowling ally. I hate that you have a bad taste in your mouth and would like to make it better. Come down to AMP in Pasadena and we will give you a free rental and 4 free game for you and a guest. Our games cost half the price and the courteous staff is more than happy to serve your bowling needs. Just ask for Gus and I will take care of you.

Who said the vulgar language was used when I was there in-person? I don�t work at a bowling. If I did I would promote it. The last time I had such poor customer service was 3 years ago at a Circuit city. It took a year to resolve in my flavor and we all know where Circuit city is now. You�re ten times more likely to tell about a bad customer service experience then a good one. Why don�t you first apologize and try to resolve this dreadful experience I had at Severna Park Lanes. I know this will not come effortlessly. The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain. This not the only forum I have enlighten others on the experience they will encounter at Severna Park Lanes.

roy munson,
why did you not mention the vulgar language in your first post.what center go you work at?

Comment Date: 3/30/2009 Name: Wilson Davies
I would have to agree on how Claudia Angel feels about Severna Park Lanes. The employees there are very rude. My ball got damaged there and i heard from a lot of others about ball damage as well. They fix the ball for you but the ball is never the same once it is damaged. And I heard a lot about the guy who I believe his name is {Name Deleted} always bothers women there and scares away customers. I don�t know the guy personally but he seems very drunk, loud and rude to the customers. If you want to bowl somewhere nice I heard good feedback from Greenway bowl and Crofton.

Employees at this �establishment� (and I use that term loosely) used vulgar language at me when I inquired about the bill. The employee questioned my intelligence and told me � If you don’t like it don’t come back.� My question is that if your dog is not in the fight�..why are you picking one? If I want to warn people, I will warn them. If you look at past entries to this forum clearly I am not the only one. That is if you can filter the �BS� ads posted by the interested party i.e. you ED T.

Learn and practice bowlers ettiquette. By the way, the folks at this place are a little brusque, but it’s a bowling alley for crissakes, not a day care center.

Comment Date: 3/27/2009 Name: EdT
Hey Roy, you have lost any credibility you might have had.I don’t have a dog in this fight….appears YOU however have a personal grudge against this center. If you really expect people to believe you paid $40 for 3 games you are way off base.( OR REALLY STUPID) If you don’t like this center for some reason…don’t go there but please spare everyone your lies and BS. By the way, I don’t work for these guys as you seem to think since you refer to “my pizza”,,,,like I said I don’t have a dog in this fight. Have a nice day.

I did not have a good time at all here and to top it off the overpriced bill—-even with the coupon. The lanes the warped and the staff rude, beware!!!

Comment Date: 3/25/2009 Name: Roy Munson
Hey ED T. it was three games and thanks for overcharging me…..pay back is fun. The Pizza at 7-11, that sat out overnight, taste better than yours. Ed thanks for hiring “special” employees, it�s good to see Corky from life goes on get a job in these hard economic times. It�s too bad that he scares the bejesus out of the little kids.

Just want to say I Love This Place! My Family and I go every Saturday Night! The Staff are great! The Pizza is awesome!

Has anyone been there on Wednesdays they have a Great Special From 3pm to 5pm its only $5.00 per person Unlimited bowling for 2 Hours. I go every Wednesday! What a Deal!

Comment Date: 3/20/2009 Name: Nancy Passwaters
My family enjoys this bowling center. We have had birthday parties there and have always found the staff courteous and helpful.

Comment Date: 3/19/2009 Name: ED T.
Hey Roy, how many games did you and your date bowl for $40 with a coupon? At $4.35 a game that would be 10 games plus your free ones. Just how much did you expect to pay for about 14 games? Apparently you don’t get out much. And for Claudia…maybe YOU should stay with your teenaged daughter? No excuse for allowing drunks to bother them but a little parental supervision couldn’t hurt.

Comment Date: 3/16/2009 Name: Roy Munson
The lanes are nice and staff is okay…. but the price is not right. Compared to other larger established lanes Severna Park Lanes are prices are gouged. In these times we are looking for deals not rip-offs. I don’t work at any lanes, unlike the last entry ad for Severna Park Lanes.

I would just like to say that I dropped my daughter and her three friends off for Galaxy Bowl . There ages range from 15-17. They were sexually harassed by some druken patrons there. When they approached the “people”,and I use that term losely, that worked there about this, they would not do anyhting about it. It was the person that collected their money and a “girl” behind the counter serving drinks. My daughter called me to pick them up early and was ashamed to tell me what had happened until we arrived home. I am furious that this happened.You think that this overpriced establishment are going to keep our kids safe. Hah! What a joke!!!

Comment Date: 3/15/2009 Name: ernie mccrackin
i have gone there a few times because its convenient and thats it. prices are grossly high and the staff acts as if it s a huge task to help you.im not sure if it is because of the fact it is ran by the people belonging to the crazy place known as antioch on rt 2. i think thats the reasoning behind the lack of asistance and cash only everywhere. hurray for money laundering!

Comment Date: 3/5/2009 Name: Anonymous
i bowled there a few weeks ago,and was not overchrged,was charged correctly for food and beverages(price menus are posted),and employees helped me and my family have a great time.p.s. the game prices are also posted at the front desk.i have bowled at southdale and their prices are higher,and the place is dirty,employees seem indifferent(maybe not all),but most.

Comment Date: 2/23/2009 Name: Roy Munson
I went there this weekend for the first time this weekend and had a great time with my date until I paid the bill. The reason I went there is because I had a coupon from the Entertainment book for matching free games up to 4. I hate to pay the bill without the coupon because the price paid was more than double I am used to at other lanes�.over $40!

I just Called The Severna Park Lanes and they were very rude. They mocked me and yelled at me. I will never again use their lanes

Comment Date: 12/28/2008 Name: Greg
I have gone to this bowling alley three times. For all the people supporting it, you must work there. They do not tell you the price to bowl, will misquote you if you ask, and overcharge on beverages and beer. You can say whatever you want to say about the other local bowling alleys, but at the very least they will be upfront to their customers and you will not have to worry about being ripped off for a night bowling. As for me, I will avoid this alley like the plague.

What a concept….ask for the information you want to know.Wow! There is a LOT to recommend for this center…just drive a few minutes up the road to Southdale to compare and then make a quick u-turn and say THANK YOU to Severna Park when you get back.Nice, clean, friendly …

Comment Date: 6/10/2008 Name: Anonymous
how about looking at the sign when you go in, or maybe even ask

Comment Date: 4/27/2008 Name: Anonymous
How about listing all the costs for bowling? Not just Galaxy Bowling.

Severna Park bowl now accepts credit cards! Welcome to the 21st Century!

It is okay. Good place to bowl.

Comment Date: 5/10/2007 Name: Anonymous
Galaxy Bowl starts at 11. It’s $15 per person, but you get shoes and can bowl all the games you can until it ends.

The Over weight Attendant No Longer Works at the Center. The last time I was in everyone was very nice and helpful. My family and I had a wonderful time. They Offer good old fashioned fun with good value. They have Tenpin bowling as well as Duckpin. That is so COOL!

Comment Date: 4/3/2006 Name: mrs. bozinovic
The overweight attendant at the front desk ignored me while he talked on the phone and my family and I were waiting to be helped. He was eating a cheeseburger and was very rude when my son lost a quarter in one of the arcade games. He said it wasn’t his problem to give us another quarter. The facilities are nice, a bit overpriced, but the staff act like they could care less about the customers. I was thinking of joining a league, but I have changed my mind.

This is a great place to take your kids; it is CLEAN; they don’t allow anyone to just linger around unless they are actually bowling (I’ve actually seen them ask someone to leave). The kids love the interactive score keeper; but don’t forget to bring your CASH; they don’t take credit cards!

Comment Date: 9/14/2005 Name: Anonymous
It would be nice if the humidity was lower in the building. It always seems sticky when we are there. We see too many people falling on the approches.

What time does galaxy bowling start?

Comment Date: 8/30/2005 Name: Matt
The Severna Park lanes are a lot of fun. However, the prices are a little higher than they should be. There should either be more specials or prices should be lowered altogether.

Comment Date: 8/16/2005 Name: Holly
Watch out …. their advertisement for the
“school’s out special” all you can bowl for 2 hours for only $8 per person”
is deceiving.
This is only for kids, not for adults.
They tell you when you actually book a lane, but it is on none of their flyers!!

Comment Date: 7/14/2005 Name: Bowler
This is fun and when they turn off the lights and turn on the other ones…awesome!
