Are you looking for a new hobby? Over the past few years, all sorts of new activities have been popping up, and there are a few that have become incredibly popular. Escape rooms, rock climbing, and axe throwing are three activities that have become popular recently, and it’s easy to see why! Challenge yourself to something new and exciting. You’ll either have an exhilarating day, and you may even pick up a new hobby to do regularly. 



Solve puzzles, find clues, and beat the clock at one of Nanaimo’s escape rooms. Escape rooms have been one of the most popular things to do over the past few years and it’s easy to see why. They’re fun, challenging, and immersive, and a great way to step out of your usual routine. Nanaimo has some great escape rooms including Breakout Nanaimo and Exit Nanaimo. Step into a broken lab, abandoned cabin, lost ship, or zombie apocalypse and see if you can break your way out in an hour! Book your spot online to play!



If you’re looking for a physical activity that’s fun and challenging, look no further than rock climbing. The Romper Room is a rock climbing gym that has over 7,500 square feet of climbing surfaces for anyone from a beginner to a seasoned rock climber. There are easy-to-scale walls, and walls with ledges and crevices, plus training sessions for first-time climbers. Rock climbing is a great, safe, way to spend a day. They’re currently accepting bookings, so make a reservation before you go in. 



Another unique up-and-coming activity is axe throwing! Go to Axe & Grind to bring out your inner lumberjack and try your hand at this new sport. The purpose is simple- try and throw your axe at the dartboard and hit the middle. A staff member will teach you the proper safe technique before you start, and then you’ll be ready to throw. Don’t be surprised if it’s addicting to play! Axe & grind is currently accepting bookings online.


At the end of your exhilarating day, stop at the Best Western Dorchester Nanaimo. Located downtown, the Best Western offers a central location, comfortable amenities, and beautiful waterfront views.
