Time and Location:
Shooting Gallery Studios, Red Studio (3317 Zapote, Makati City) on Saturday, February 16, from 10 am to 6 pm. Take it one step further, and come in a costume!
The Super Rooms:
It’s all about teamwork! Each of the seven Super Rooms are themed after the superhero siblings from The Umbrella Academy, which is now streaming on Netflix. Take a look at the rooms and the launch party below:
Eric Tai for Luther/Number 1
TV host and rugby player Eric Tai took on the room of Luther, the leader of The Umbrella Academy. As he has spent most of his life in solitude on the moon, his room was themed as a space station, where everything is miniature sized to make you feel super big and super strong.
Andre Paras for Diego/Number 2
True to his vigilante character, Diego’s Super Room was styled as a dark hero’s lair, complete with gadgets and weapons. To solve the puzzle, actor Andre Paras showed off his marksman skills, just like Diego!
Sanya Lopez for Allison/Number 3
To unlock her room, actress Sanya Lopez channelled her inner pop star and flexed her music trivia (and singing!) skills in Allison’s room, whose power is to manipulate reality.
Benjamin Alves for Klaus/Number 4
Like the eccentric and party-loving Klaus, actor and host Benj Alves solved his dive bar-themed room by concocting the perfect cocktail to die for. Klaus’ super power is his ability to talk to the dead.
Brent Manalo for The Boy/Number 5
The Boy possesses unique time-traveling abilities, but somehow has managed to stay (and look) the same age. Model Brent Manalo took on The Boy’s nostalgic-themed room by beating video games from different eras.
Santino Rosales for Ben/Number 6
Ben is super dead – no more spoilers here! Model Santino Rosales impressively unlocked Ben’s room by following instructions on a Ouija Board.
Aryanna Epperson for Vanya/Number 7
Social media personality and vlogger Aryanna Epperson solved the challenge in Vanya’s room by discovering the character’s ultimate source of power.
