If you’re looking for a scarier and more horrifying horror house experience, then this theatrical horror house is for you. Don’t forget to knock and be ready for an intense thrilling experience.
You might have been to horror houses before and usually, it’s just a bunch of mechanical things and scary displays in the dark that will make you jolt a little. Then, Bahay Trese took it up a notch –it has theatrical performances to intensify your horror experience!
I admit, I’ve never been a fan of katatakutan or anything associated with horror because I’m easily scared. Heck, I don’t even watch that much horror movies.
Even if I don’t believe much in folklore and mystical creatures, I’m still afraid of them (or least don’t want to meet them in real life). However, with my prior experience on horror houses, I was confident that I’ll do just fine in entering this horror house. After all, mechanical horror house is mediocre.
I WAS confident. And I WAS wrong all along. It doesn’t operate with mechanical horror displays, it has its own actors and they do it live! (And doing it live #shookt me. It was intense)
Conceived at Friday the 13th
It was February 13, 1945 when the streak of continuous reports and crimes during the Japanese occupation abruptly stopped and continued the day after. The killings were documented continuously on all days except that day.
This historical mystery served as an inspiration for the minds behind Bahay Trese. Now on their third season, they present “Ang Pagdurusa ni Geronima,” another story of one of the unappeased spirits in the haunted mansion.
Bahay Trese is not for faint hearts
Imagine that you are one of the survivors of the Japanese occupation and you seek shelter in the house. The horror house is so immersive, I was too involved in it. Unfortunately, you can’t document the experience inside to preserve the mystery, but be ready for an intense vocal exercise!
The whole place is structured into a house. You can notice how intricate their design is. Be prepared to go all over the place to find the exits. Do the suggested activities by the guide and you’ll be safe.
Believe me, don’t wear skirts. Also, if you can’t really continue the journey, they’ll provide a safeword for you. To be honest, I screamed “Ayoko naaaa!” once at the climax of the story. Then, I remembered I needed to finish it (so I can be proud of myself) so I awkwardly laughed and said “Joke lang po,”
Intense Action and Reactions
One thing I really commend about the whole Bahay Trese experience is the intricate acting that makes the guests feel really involved in the story. The cast and crew can really adjust on how the audience responds. With those reactions, they improvise. They were members of esteemed theater organizations, so you can expect great acting from them.
I was shouting and I was literally on the verge of crying while I was inside. It was forbidden to shout expletives so I was just shouting “Mama,” and “Oh my god”. You will certainly feel the adrenaline with the activities you will do.
You’ll definitely be able to exercise your vocal chords here because you’ll be screaming a lot. Drink lots of water because your throat will feel dry.
Perfect for Families and Barkadas
We entered fresh, but we left haggard. This attraction is totally great for groups of people. If you wanted to spend your weekend with your family and barkadas, go for it!
However, it is restricted to children under 13 years old and those who have heart ailments and asthma. You’re required to read the guidelines before you take on the challenge.
If you’re brave enough to go inside the house, it is definitely worth the try. Luckily, I survived.
Surely, this horror house experience is definitely one of the scariest encounters I’ve had inside a horror house. If you want to be spooked to the max, you should visit this attraction.
Bahay Trese is a World of Fun attraction at the 4th floor of Sta. Lucia East Mall Bldg. 3 in Cainta, Rizal. The house opened its doors last Oct. 13, 2017 and will run until January, 14, 2018. They are open on Fridays to Sundays from 3 pm to 9 pm.
