Stage 3 Is Here!  What's Changed?? Now that BC has entered into Stage 3 of the Restart Plan 2.0, there are some important changes to how we operate.

  • We are now able to operate at up to 50% capacity (i.e. 75 people, excluding staff)
  • We are now able accommodate groups of more than 6 people
  • We will continue to leave an empty lane between separate parties when possible. 
    • There is no longer a requirement to ensure that groups are separated, but we will try our best to ensure spacing between groups 
  • While we ARE able to serve food and beverages again, patrons must remain seated when consuming food and beverages, and may stand when it is their turn to bowl.  
  • Masks are no longer required, but are recommended in indoor public places for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated.


As part of the Province of British Columbia's Restart Plan 2.0, Sports and Recreation facilities are permitted to be open 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


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

Brechin Lanes 5 Pin Bowling Centre is your home for family FUN and family entertainment in Nanaimo, BC!

Brechin Lanes is a great place to have fun times with family and friends. At Brechin Lanes you can have a great time at prices that won’t break your family’s budget. We have plenty of bumper bowling lanes just for kids! Bumpers are great to keep the bowling balls out of the gutters and smiles on the faces of your small children.

We also have our COOL Glow Bowling where you bowl with the lights down – great music turned up and awesome special effects lighting…it looks like a nightclub!

When looking for family fun in Nanaimo look no further than Brechin Lanes!
