Date with zombies

Did we think we will survive the night? Of course! But did we?

It was intense! We have yet to figure out the right combination of the padlock that would set us free from inside the metal container. Meanwhile, the chained walker was beginning to get agitated, and we ran out of chocolate bars to distract it (yes, a chocolate-loving zombie. Imagine that…). I was resigned to our fate. We will be eaten alive by the walker in 3…2…CLICK!

Our official time: 14 minutes and 59 nerve-wracking seconds!

I was fortunate enough to join the team of When In Manila to play Breakout PhilippinesThe Walking Dead Escape Game last Saturday, October 11. There were five of us in the team: a TWD geek, a competitive spirit, the competitive player’s supportive friend, a teammate who has not seen a single TWD episode, and someone who tagged along for the thrill. Yeah, putting us all together to achieve one goal seemed fun. We were all psyched to win an O+ phone each; but teaming up to solve riddles and escape did not exactly work for us. Nonetheless, the entire experience was “spooktacular”.

One of us suggested that it would have been great to have some (if not all) characters from the hit TV series to be seen walking the grounds of the game area.  Of course I don’t expect Breakout Philippines to bring The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus and company all the way here (but why not!); just their distinguishing character marks will do. Imagine seeing Daryl with his signature bow, Carl with his cowboy hat, and Michonne with her distinct sword! An afterthought, of course, since the event had its last run yesterday, October 12. Who knows, a re-run might happen if Philippine fans want it enough? I certainly wouldn’t mind getting another crack at it! Ahem, Breakout Philippines 😉

Sucks to be you, walker!
