It’s a cold stormy night and you’re trapped in a creepy motel room… how do you get out? Just when you thought it was all over, Breakout Philippines comes out with another exciting and “frustratingly fun” room to escape from: Room 13!

“After getting an eerie feeling that you are being watched, you and your friends try to leave the room. The doorknob falls off. You try to force your way out but all exits are sealed tight. This isn’t some unfortunate accident. There’s more to this room than you thought. The nightmare has become a reality. You are trapped inside. You have 45 minutes to Plan as team, Solve puzzles and Escape before time expires. Will you be able to #Breakout or be #TrappedForever? “

Breakout Philippines Room 13


For those unfamiliar with the concept of Breakout Philippines, it’s basically a REAL-LIFE escape room game. Breakout is an interactive game where participants will have to team up to find clues and solve logic puzzles based on various story lines and themed rooms. Read more about it here


Since it first opened last May 2014, Breakout Philippines has had several fully booked weekends with people dying to try their luck at escaping either Adarna’s Lair or the Prison Room. Well, this August, Breakout Philippines is opening up a brand new room for you to trap yourselves in. (That sounded wrong. haha)


For Room 13, a total of 8 players are allowed to play. Before going in, you are given a short briefing of what to expect as well as things to do or to NOT do. Kristine, gave our briefing at 8:30pm last Saturday and despite having given these briefings several times already, she was still full of zest and energy! Good work Kristine! Your energy definitely made us all the more excited.


Breakout Ph : The team looking really excited of what’s to come!


After blindfolded, we were led up to the 2nd floor where Room 13 is located. There we were asked to put on some blind folds before entering the room itself in order to focus the senses. We listened to an audio recording of the room’s history and soon after removed our blindfolds. A CCTV with built in mic and speakers is placed inside the room so that the marshals are able to watch you from the outside and warn you if you’re about to do something crazy (like break a lock or electrocute yourself). A huge timer is also found inside to warn you of your remaining time left.


I’m not about to give any spoilers but I HIGHLY recommend any of the 3 rooms to friends, office mates and families! It’s a fun game that will allow you to test your wits, memory and teamwork. Room 13 is said to be the easiest among the 3 rooms but I can guarantee it is still full of excitement and surprises! All I can say is EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED and DON’T TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED.

  • You have to collect items, identify clues, solve mysteries, and break puzzles within 45 minutes.

  • What do you get if you successfully Breakout? The prize is the priceless moment when everything falls into place and you finally find the solution.

The fastest ones will also earn a spot in our Hall of Fame and you will be honored… Your parents will be so proud.
  • If you don’t escape, we will keep you in the room forever. Just kidding. Keeping you in the room against your will is breaking the law.

“Failure is just one step closer to success!” Feel free to play again. Breakout Philippines’ offers a membership card that can get you up to 50% off your second try of the same room!
