Notice

We have decided to close voluntarily for two weeks, starting Saturday, November 21. As both Provincial and Federal health officials urge Canadians to significantly reduce their social interactions with those outside their household and to stay home as much as possible, we are taking this step to keep both our customers and staff safe. It is our hope that doing so will help us to resume normal business activities as soon as possible. Our current plan is to reopen on Monday, December 7. Please do your part to stop the spread. Stay safe, and stay healthy! We will see you again soon!


As part of the Province of British Columbia's Restart Plan, Sports and Recreation facilities are permitted to reopen with certain restrictions.  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 COVID-19 Action Plan HERE. We are also following the Bowling Centre Best Practices, as compiled by Bowl Canada - view HERE


Per Public Health Order, MASKS ARE NOW MANDATORY.


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


Pursuant to the Province of BC Health Orders, group size is limited to 6 patrons, and each group must remain at least 6 feet from other groups.  This also applies to parties of more than 6 people.  For example, if a group of 8 people (or any number greater than 6) wishes to bowl, the group will be separated into two groups, and these two groups must remain at least 6 feet apart at all times.  This is the same rule as in all restaurants in the Province of BC.
