How do I play The Escape Hunt Experience? To answer this now would give away the whole surprise so let’s just say it is one of the most exhilarating ways to spend 90 minutes with your friends. The adventure lasts 60 minutes but you should arrive 10 minutes before for your briefing and afterwards we offer you refreshments and a time for feedback and discussion so allow 90 minutes in total (or more if you want to just hang out with us). The adventure itself involves escaping from a room where a crime has been committed. Solve the mystery and escape. Sounds simple? Just try!
So how long does the adventure last? Each adventure is 60 minutes long and you need to arrive 10 minutes before for the briefing. Afterwards, the de-briefing, discussion and refreshments will take around 30 minutes.
Can I play on my own? Our games are all designed for 2 – 5 players and these are the recommended numbers of players but if you really want to play alone you can! We are happy to accommodate you as a solo player but remember it will be hard work! It is also a lot of extra work for our game masters, so we need to still need to charge our minimum rate of 2 players.
So how many people should play? We have tested all sorts of numbers but the ideal is a group of 2 – 5 players. For this reason we are quite strict about these team sizes now as we want to ensure that each and every Escape Hunt experience is excellent.
Do we need to be really strong? Physical strength is not needed at all. We have designed our adventures to be as accessible for the most petite person to a body builder and every age group. You need skills other than brawn like good searching skills and logical reasoning. Moving our solid teak furniture is not required…
Are there any age limits for Escape Hunt? We have tried the adventures with all ages and it is equalled enjoyable for all age groups. For practical reasons, since this is a group activity and we need a certain level of maturity, we limit the minimum age to 7 years old but there is no maximum age. We love kids but this is an adult game and therefore younger children really will not enjoy it. Also, there must be at least one player of over 16 years of age playing in the room at all times.
Do I need to use English? Yes, the whole The Escape Hunt Experience concept is in English.
Will it be too difficult for me? It all depends upon how well you follow the brief, work in a team and put your best effort into the adventure. Each adventure is designed to be tough, but not impossible. Our Game Masters are there to help you all the time as they play in the room with you.
What if I don’t “escape”? Then you and your team are eaten alive. Only kidding! You will still enjoy yourself whether you escape or not; we will make sure of that!
What if I don’t enjoy myself? We take very possible care to ensure that your experience with us is highly enjoyable and meets your expectations. If however, in the unlikely event we fail to provide you with the five star experience we promise, We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and with us the customer is always right so we will deal with any issue you might encounter and do whatever it takes to ensure you have an excellent experience.
Do I need to wear any special clothes or bring anything? Please come in your usual clothes as we do not require any physical activity out of the ordinary. It is your brain we are after so please make sure to bring that! Otherwise, we provide everything.
Can I come back and play again? Absolutely. We have three entirely different adventures (2 rooms of each of Jewel Heist at the Resort, Trapped at the Spa and Murder at Home) and we change the adventures at regular intervals so you’ll be able to test your skills over and over again!
Where is The Escape Hunt Experience? We are in the middle of Manila At 5773 Ebro St., Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City.
Can I get there by MRT ? Yes you can. You would need to Get off at Buendia station, then take a jeep along Buendia Ave Going to Makati Ave. then its just a short walk from there.
Can I drive to you? Again, no problem as we have ample parking, when coming from Makati Ave. Turn Right onto Jupiter, then Left onto Polaris street, When you see Alba Restaurant turn left onto Durban St. then right onto Ebro St.
Can our company do team building here? Absolutely. We have a separate division dedicated especially to corporate and special events. Please contact us for details of a private corporate event in our adventure base in Manila or a themed event at your workplace (coming soon). In our game centre we specialize in team building exercises by playing the games first as groups and then seminar sessions afterwards to build on corporate objectives such as ice breaking, group puzzles, IQ testing, evaluation as well as having fun!
What kind of corporate events can we do? The idea is learning through play. We aim to assess, discuss, analyze and teach. We do all of the above for teamwork, leadership, personal motivation, team structure, empowerment, initiative building, ongoing corporate and individual improvement. We use game-play to challenge people individually and in group settings.
We observe the individual and group interaction and provide profiling based on this and subsequent seminar discussion. We set discussion tasks and assess ability to solve these real world tasks also. Finally we discuss findings at individual and management level and provide a verbal and written assessment (output) as required. All work is based on a combination of sound organizational psychology principles and practical change management tools.
What is the best program? Our experience shows that the ideal program is a combination of escape game play followed by group work but you can choose to play one game only or a game followed by another game. This can all be adapted for group sizes between 24 and 72, for different times of the day and to suit corporate needs, but follows the following format for a typical 3 hour event:
How many people can you accommodate? We are able to accommodate up to 72 people at a time in our 6 inside game rooms. We handle group sizes from 18 to 72 easily and more by special arrangement.
What is all this based on? Our founder is a qualified psychologist who specialized and practised in organizational (work) psychology. He used these skills coupled with a broad commercial background to consult for many companies over his career. He brings these skills to our Escape Hunt corporate challenges to make something truly unique.
How can we organize our corporate event? We deal with our corporate clients directly. We prefer to deal directly with you rather than via a travel agent, organizer or event planner. In our experience, these third parties cannot communicate the options effectively and so much detail gets lost. For this reason we strongly urge you to contact us directly.
Who have you worked with recently? We run around 2 – 3 events each week and clients are both local to Manila and from all over Asia. Due to confidentiality agreements we are not able to provide a list of current of past clients.
When can I play The Escape Hunt Experience? Located in central Makati on Ebro Street, we are open for business every day of the year with 7 games a day from 11:30am until 10:00pm on weekdays and 10:00am until 10:00pm on weekends. You can play whenever we have free slots, either by booking online on this website or call us on 02 751 9124 (+63 2 751 9124 from abroad).
What hours are you open? We are open from 11:30am until 10:00pm during weekdays and 10:00am until 10:00pm on weekends. Our first adventure starts each day at 11:30am on weekdays and 10am on weekends and the last at 8:30pm. We close after de-briefing and serving drinks to the last adventurers around 10:00pm.
What if I arrive late? This is a LIVE adventure concept so unfortunately if you arrive late, you may NOT be able to play and/or you may be required to play in a reduced amount of time. It’s extremely important to arrive on time, as there will be other adventurers booked in after you as well. The best way to avoid arriving late is to always plan for traffic.
Do I need to book in advance? Yes, we operate a sophisticated booking and calendar system here on our website and via Facebook. Bookings always fill up quickly, so be sure to check regularly as we open new booking periods daily. All our promotions and discounts are ONLY available online! Therefore we highly recommend booking online to get the slot you want.
Can't I just turn up and play with friends? There may be a limited number of game slots each day for last minute bookings and walk-ins. You will need to arrive as early as possible in the day in order to reserve for later that day, as these will be on a first-come, first-served basis. For this reason, we STRONGLY recommend booking ahead!
How do I book? Booking is really simple. Go to out bookings page and follow these simple steps:
1. Choose your group size. We allow from 2 – 5 players. Less than 2 means you want to play alone. It’s hard, but you can if you really want to try, but keep in mind you will still need to pay for 2 players. More than 5 players is possible too – just book 2 or more rooms and spread your team across those rooms. You will start at the same time and play against each other head-to-head.
2. Choose your room theme. There is a description on the booking site and more information in our FAQs here on another page but all games are great to play.
3. Choose your preferred date and time. By clicking on all the games you get more choice of date and time. The chances are you will find a free slot on one of the rooms, so check them all one by one!
4. Choose the game and pay. You should have no problems paying either by credit card or PayPal using our online system and the payment system from PayPal but if you have any problems please let us know. Please note that PayPal has its own rules for taking payments which we cannot control.
Important notes: To book multiple rooms select them one by one and then pay together at checkout. To book more than 4 months ahead or for any other general questions, please contact us directly.

What adventures will I find at The Escape Hunt Experience? We have 6 rooms at Escape Hunt split into 3 different adventures. Each has an exciting and different theme. We have two “Jewel Heist at the Resort” rooms, two “Trapped at the Spa” rooms and two “Murder at Home” rooms. All games are played in English. Each theme has an entirely different set of puzzles and codes so you can come back to play the other room later and still enjoy the experience equally. Difficulty level varies with Jewel Heist at the Resort being the easiest and Murder at Home being the most challenging.
Can we play against each other in different adventures? Our 6 game rooms are separate but are “twinned” into 3 pairs with the same mystery to solve to allow for two teams to compete against each other head-to-head. This way you can book as group of up to 10 people, split into 2 groups and then compete against each other. So, if you have an urge to compete, try it for up to 30 people!
Can you tell us more about the adventures? All 6 rooms are set in Manila, Philippines but the stories are different. In the jewel heist room, set in a beach resort, you will unravel the mystery of the missing jewels, In the trapped at the spa you have to find your way out of a Spa. Murder at Home, is set in a traditional house from the 80's, find out who committed the murder and escape in time! In each case there are several suspects, lots of clues and a great storyline. Be prepared for mystery, ghosts and much more.
What is The Escape Hunt Experience? The Escape Hunt Experience is an international company with Head Office operations in Bangkok and the brain-child of the CEO and founder. In his long career, he has been a marketeer, business consultant and entrepreneur in several fields. He decided to launch The Escape Hunt Experience because he saw a real opportunity to create something highly original and beneficial to all walks of society. Being based in Bangkok and seeing a lack of indoor daytime entertainment, he launched the concept there first. Seeing the way “experiential entertainment” is taking off around the world, he decided early on to build the business as a highly scalable one, which would translate to every local culture around the world. The Escape Hunt Experience is unique in style and concept and the first “escape game” of its kind and continues to set new standards around the world as it grows into a global branch network with branches everywhere.
What makes The Escape Hunt Experience so special as an adventure? There are many things you can do with your time these days but none are as special as The Escape Hunt Experience because it is not only fun yet safe, educational yet light-hearted, challenging yet cooperative, competitive yet relaxing – the list goes on.
How does The Escape Hunt Experience differ from other “escape games” I have seen online? Firstly, Escape Hunt is LIVE – that means no online play and all real-time action. You are IN the game! Secondly, the concept and execution is beyond anything you will ever see elsewhere, we promise!
Has a lot of thought gone into this? A lot! The founder and CEO, has a background in Psychology, Languages and Education from Cambridge University where he gained a starred first Masters Degree. He then specialised in IQ testing, teamwork design, cognitive and group psychology and went on to work with this in industry. What you see here is the result of many years of research and life experience, coupled with a desire to create something special in his favourite city and home, Bangkok.
