Founded in Japan in 2007, escape rooms have become one of the largest trends in indoor entertainment in the United States within the last few years. Thankfully, Maui has recently welcomed Mystery Maui to its list of daytime – and even better, after dark – island offerings.
While you don’t have to be a seasoned detective to solve the mystery in this new, centrally-located Wailuku escape room, it presents the perfect degree of difficulty to uncover the clues and escape the room within the 60 minutes you’re allotted.
Who Can Participate
The best thing about Mystery Maui’s escape rooms? They’re open for all ages! While kids 13 years of age and under are required to participate with at least one parent or other adult, there’s no reason why the whole family can’t enjoy the experience on your next trip to The Valley Isle.
In fact, we suggest this escape room activity to spice up your next date night, as a way to have fun and team-build with coworkers, or for a memorable girls night out. Considering Maui is one of the top wedding destinations in the world, this would also be a highlight for wedding parties or those traveling to Maui with a friend group.
Rooms are open for private groups ranging from 2 to 6 people, and larger groups are welcome to book two rooms simultaneously and compete to see who solves the mystery first.
Escape Room Details
Wondering how an escape room actually works? Don’t stress; it’s straightforward, and you’ll have plenty of help from your dedicated game marshal if you need further assistance along the way.
First, guests must choose between two unique mystery cases: a pop superstar who’s planning an invite-only concert at her home, or a chef who’s gone missing from his ramen shop.
After arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation time, you’ll be shown around the escape room area and given a quick orientation from your game marshal. Then, once the doors close, you’ll have 60 minutes to solve the mystery with your initial 3 clues, as well as uncover others in the process. Still having trouble moving forward? Let your game marshal know and they’ll give you a little nudge in the right direction.
A true test of your teamwork abilities, the ultimate goal of the escape room is to have FUN! Owners Kit and Deron are extremely creative, and impressively crafted the entire mystery storyline from their own imaginations, thoughtfully incorporating clever hints, themed music, entertaining decor and more on their own to ensure you never have another escape room encounter like it.
