10 Most Awesome Live Escape Game / Mystery Room Experience in Manila in 2014!

I love Live Escape Game / Mystery Rooms ever since we tried Mystery Manila’s Justice for Manila. It’s very addicting and a great challenging bonding session with your friends and family. Have you tried it?

It’s great to have two competing pioneers BreakOut Philippines by OutBreak Manila vs. Mystery Manila that continuous to elevate this live game genre in Manila. We tried all the Mystery Rooms and we solved most of it except for BreakOut Philippine’s Adarna’s Lair.  My personal favorite is Rebecca’s Room by Mystery Manila.

Here’s our top 10 Most Awesome Live Escape Game / Mystery Room Experience in Manila in 2014:

 

1. ADARNA’S LAIR @BreakOutPH

Breakout Manila - Adarna's Lair-12.jpgADARNA’S LAIR is the hardest Breakout Philippine’s real life escape room game experience. You play as detectives and find a cure for the initial spreading of the Zombie Outbreak in Manila. You only have 45mins until Dr. Adarna arrives or become a zombie bait.

I must admit this was the most challenging room we encountered, but also the most elaborate in terms of production setup and fun in terms of solving the puzzles.

We “almost” solved Adarna’s Lair, and here’s why we failed…

ADARNA’S LAIR
You are a detective trying to discover more about the virus during the initial spreading of the Zombie Outbreak in Manila. Succeeding rumors of Dr. Adarna being involved with the Outbreak, you investigate his house to look for solid evidence and perhaps a way to stop the infection before it becomes too late.

Upon entering the premises, you get a feeling you are not alone. You start hearing sounds you only hear in nightmares. Can you find the information you need and breakout before you become zombie bait?

New Year’s Eve Manila 2015: Awesome Guide to New Year’s Eve Party in Manila!

12/30/15 Update: New Year’s Eve Manila 2016: Awesome Guide to a Dazzling New Year! 

New Year's Eve Party by Marksim Pasko
(Copyright by Marksim Pasko)

New Year’s Eve (NYE) Parties in Manila is getting exciting in 2015.  You can decide to celebrate in a hotel – Sofitel, Solaire, Manila Peninsula or Best Western, or in the malls – Mall of Asia GMA 7 Countdown and Eastwood Quezon City Countdown.  This year, TV5 is joining the NYE celebration with a Happy sa 2015 QC Countdown and the City of Manila with Sulong Manila 2015 Countdown.

Bonifacio Global City will be the center of the club party scene and after parties for New Year’s Eve. Check out VASK’s Glamorous Black and Gold Affair and the after party at VALKYRIE. Hop on to RAVEN, HYVE, VYNE and SKYE or catch the sunrise at the new club PANGAEA at City of Dreams.

Like us, we would escape the party scene in Manila either go to the Philippine Arena’s 2015 Philippine Countdown in the North or to Taal Vista’s New Year’s Eve Bash in the South. 

Here’s the Awesome Guide to New Year’s Eve Party in Manila to welcome 2015:
