“The Terminus. Is it a safe sanctuary or not? Hundreds of participants got to experience the terminus and try to find a way out a cargo container #BreakoutPH style while a #TWDonFox Zombie Walker scared the hell out of them. Talk about having poise under pressure. Shrieks from the participants enveloped the Terminus yet there was a valiant few who were able to escape on time.”
The last season of the series, The Walking Dead ended in the Terminus with the cliffhanger having Rick and the group getting trapped in a tight spot. That’s where the escape game begins with Breakout Philippines, the country’s first escape game and The Walking Dead teams up to give the people the feel of the Terminus. As any of Breakout Philippines escape games, there were clues and puzzles to be unraveled and a single way to escape. For this one, you’ll have fifteen minutes (20 minutes if you download the McDonalds App) to escape. Of course, what’s the walking dead without it’s walkers. It turns out, there’s one walker inside the cargo container who may hold a clue to your escape and to your survival.
For two day, the area of 34th Street of Bonifacio Global City gave TWD and Outbreak Manila followers a chance to get up close and personal with the walkers while going around the Terminus or trying to escape the container. There were also TWD viewing areas and sponsors giveaways for those who dare to visit the sanctuary The area were enveloped with panic, hysteria and high-pitched shrieks as participants figured a way out of the container even as a walker scares the hell out of them in those 15 frightening minutes. As tight as it was, the room had all the clues needed to breakout. There were safe zones that won’t let you down and there was a walker who may hold the key to your escape. The experienced was made even more realistic by role playing characters leading you to the containers.
At the center of the scarefest were the Outbreak Manila Zombies (OMZs) who have been honed in the numerous Outbreak Manila, Outbreak Missions and Zombie Schools to make their characters realistic and believable. It turns out they are as honored as much as those who participated for being tapped to be part of The Walking Dead Breakout Philippines experience. Here’s a recap on how the OMZs felt being part of the event and their favorite moments.

The trip to the Terminus was a rare chance to simulate the farewell scene from The Walking Dead series last season. A greater majority was not able to go out in time but for sure counting the shrieks and shivers that was heard and felt in BGC, a lot had the scarier time of their lives. With the long wait from the end of the last season, this was one of the best ways to welcome the new season as TWD followers get to start following the new twist, turns and heartbeat-stopping storylines that comes with the new season.
