Manila Life, Mystery Rooms

DEBBY’S DOLL: Annabelle-inspired Horror Theme Room @MysteryManila @CenturyMall

Mystery Manila: Debby's Doll
Debby’s Doll is one of my favorite horror theme rooms from Mystery Manila. The story revolves around an old possessed doll your little sister finds in the new house your family has moved into. Strange insidious things have started to happen and it’s up to you to save your sister from the mysterious entity before it’s too late.

Mystery Manila is a simulated escape room experience that can be played by up to 6 players. You and your friends bust your brains to solve a mystery by carefully piecing together complex clues under a fun and challenging time constraint of 60 minutes.

Here’s what to expect from Debby’s Doll…

Shaolin Temple

When you speak about China, one of the things that comes to mind is Kung Fu! Journey with us to Zhengzhou–the birthplace of Shaolin Kung Fu–as we get to know the cradle of Zen Buddhism and the ancient Chinese martial arts.

Dengfeng Shaolin Temple was once hidden thousands of years ago (459 AD) inside the dense jungle of the Songshan mountain. The reconstructed World Cultural & Natural Heritage site is now a destination where people come to visit the temple and where young students and tourists alike come to train in martial arts.

Here's what to expect inside the Shaolin capital…

Crime of The Century is one of the rooms in Mystery Manila where your team takes on the role of a bomb squad, tasked to locate and diffuse a ticking time bomb inside Century City Mall.

The bomb squad must be able to locate the time bomb–which could be anywhere–within a 90-minute time limit! This is unique from the rest of Mystery Manila’s other rooms because the whole mall serves as one huge room.
