At Brechin Lanes and Escapism Escape Rooms, we have worked hard to get the measures in place so that we can once again open to the public in a manner that is safe for all.  View our Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. We are also following the Bowling Centre Best Practices, as compiled by Bowl Canada - view HERE


Both bowling and escape rooms will be available by reservation only.
