Can you breakout

Are you into Mystery games? Fan of Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew or CSI? If you said yes, then this post is for you!

Introducing, Breakout Philippines, the first real escape room game in the Philippines! My friends and I are Nancy Drew enthusiasts, and we played a lot of the interactive Nancy Drew mystery games in College. So it was a no brainer, we HAD to try Breakout!

The concept for Breakout is very simple. You get locked in one of their themed rooms, have to solve puzzles/ tests within 45 minutes and get out of the room! Pretty simple, right?

Going in, my friends and I were determined to get outta there in the fastest time. Our target was to be out in 20 minutes or less. Not that we were confident of our skills, we just like setting targets for ourselves so we can perform better. We got out that first room in less than ten and felt like we were on a roll but the second room was were we got stumped. We were so bumped out because we knew exactly what to do, but we just couldn't find one clue we needed to get out :(

We don't want to spoil the experience for anyone, but believe us when we say it was very enjoyable! The challenges were tough but easy enough to solve. The time limit was our greatest enemy and the pressure can get to you. It requires a lot of teamwork and keenness to detail, which most assume they already possess but you won't really know until it is tested during the game.

We booked online through their website and since we were a group of five, we only had to pay 400php each which we did through bank deposit. We couldn't get through their online booking system so we just emailed them instead and they replied a few hours after, which was very convenient for all of us :)

We really enjoyed the game so much that after our experience, we booked another date so we can try the other room :P

Thank you to the Breakout team for the amazing experience! See you again in a few weeks! ;)
