Tuesday, August 22, 2017 Alexis Mendoza 0 Comments

If your barkada is getting tired of doing the usual activities like watching a movie or eating out then Breakout is the perfect out-of-the-box bonding experience that you are looking for!


Fresh from our Breakout experience at SM City North EDSA a few months ago, we headed to Breakout's newest branch at Greenbelt 5 to check out and try their newest rooms. Located at the 3rd level of Greenbelt 5, Breakout's newest location still features the familiar black box type lobby with wood accents and features 4 exciting new rooms for your team to try.

In case you're not familiar with Breakout and how the game works, Breakout Philippines lets you live in different scenarios with well-crafted storylines full of unexpected twists and turns that you have to solve in order to escape. Immerse yourself in an interactive game where you need to find clues and solve logic puzzles based on various storylines and themed rooms. 

The goal is to ESCAPE THE ROOM IN 45 MINUTES. Players are encouraged to PLAN as a team, SOLVE puzzles collaboratively in order to ESCAPE before time expires. 

Get locked-up in these rooms...

There are a total of 4 new rooms that will be available at Breakout's newest branch in Makati although only 3 are available as of this writing. Here's a quick look at the backstories of each room so you can plan ahead and pick which rooms are you going to try first.


News has been going around that a ward in a particular asylum bears witness to a series of inexplicable deaths of the patients admitted there. To put an end to the mystery, the asylum was temporarily closed down so authorities can conduct further investigation.

Now, you and your team of journalists were tasked to write a story about the case, so you joined the probe and went to the asylum to do some research and see for yourselves. But upon entering, you smell the faint but unmistakable scent of the asylum… and then you hear the door lock itself shut behind you. 

Will you be able to shed light on the case and help put a stop to the horrifying events? You have 45 minutes to do so, or you will be trapped forever in a perpetual state of Paranoia


In your neighborhood, there was a popular dress shop owned by a newlywed couple. They ran their business with passion, and their love for each other was reflected on each and every dress they created. 

However, not even a year into their wedding, the wife got extremely ill and died. Her husband, wilting in his grief, became so uninspired with his craft that the once bright and welcoming shop soon turned gloomy and desolate. Because of this, people eventually stopped visiting the shop and he lost his business. The once loyal patrons started wondering though, why was there no funeral for the wife? What if she is still alive? Where was the husband now? 

Will your curiosity get you in trouble or will it shed light to the town’s unanswered questions? You have 45 minutes to unveil the secrets behind this shop, and Breakout.


You had a sleepover with your brother and cousins and played Truth or Dare. After intense rounds of Dares, your brother opted to be different and tried Truth. After much prodding, he ended up sharing “confidential information” that he was actually a spy for a secret organization.

Of course this was a wild claim and nobody believed him… until the next day. You wake up and notice that your brother is missing. More than that, the room is bolted from the outside and you can’t get out. You find a note by the printer, it seems to be a list of to do's. What's going on? 

You have 45 minutes. Can you complete the list and breakout or will you be trapped forever?

Lastly, as mentioned earlier, there's an upcoming fourth room that will open soon and before it even open, here's a quick look on what you can expect from the fourth room. You should expect this to open really soon!


Thousands of feet above the pure blue ocean, you and your friends are in a plane, headed to your long-awaited vacation. Minutes away from paradise, the plane begins to experience extreme turbulence. As the turbulence continues... 

Black. You realize that you are on a sandy beach in the middle of nowhere. You see your friends, the plane wreckage, and nothing else. You and your friends seem to be the only survivors. What happened? Where are the other passengers and cabin crew? Will you be rescued? What is this place? Where are you? 

You have 45 minutes. Will you survive or will you be trapped on the Island forever? 

The Experience: #TrappedForever

We tried a couple of the rooms on our visit, first was Paranoia. The experience was surreal and really immersive, it will really need the heads of everyone in order to progress into the game. Unfortunately, time got the best of us and we didn't came out victorious in this room.

The second room we tried is Corpse Bride, the backstory itself is quite interesting while the gameplay also immersed us deeply into the story. What's great about this room is that you're slowly uncovering layer after layer of the story about the couple. But just like the first room we tried, time got the best of us and we didn't come our successful BUT we reached 70% progress which is not bad.

If you're excited to give their rooms a try, make sure to reserve your rooms right away by heading to their website

Secret Lives: Breakout Experience That Comes To YOU!

If the 45 minutes experience isn't enough for you then you'll be glad to know that you can experience something that can last up to a month and it's called Secret Lives.

Secret Lives is Breakout's most immersive concept to date and the goal is to complete your mission within 30 days. It might sound easy but it'll keep you busy throughout the length of your mission.

You'll receive packages filled with objects, clues, and puzzles that draw you into an interactive experience. Get ready for maps, encoded letters, encrypted flash drives, forensic evidence, photographs, and much more. The package is delivered to the location of your choice. That means you will be able to solve our puzzles in your own SPACE and PACE!

I just started my mission and just received my first set of clues. I'm not going to reveal any further details from this but I just have to say that I'm just a few days into my mission and it already got me hooked. My friends even help out so I can decipher the clues and message left by the characters.
