Our second stop on the island of Honolulu was "Solve the Room Hawaii Escape Room". They are located in a building complex and the entrance is all the way to the left. The parking lot is to the right of the building. The escape room is on the 2nd floor with easy elevator access. The elevator opens up to their location as they have the full 2nd floor. The waiting area is very cute with a huge chalkboard for you to represent who you are and where you’re from (which we naturally did). There are also puzzles and games to keep you occupied while you are waiting. Currently, they have five escape room games at this location. We tried their "Prohibition Era Bar" game which sets the tone in an illegal bar during 1924's Prohibition Era. The storyline is that Al Capone came in the bar and shot a guy out of revenge and cops came after to raid the bar but you hid in the bathroom so you wouldn't get caught inside of the illegal bar. The good news is that you didn't get caught, bad news is you are locked inside the bar and now have to find a way to escape before the cops return! As the game starts, you feel like you've entered into a different era and the bar setting with bar supplies definitely adds to the surreal effect.
For escape room enthusiasts, we felt the room was quite clear and easy to follow in terms of the puzzle designs and we were able to escape with two people with plenty of time to spare. For beginners, it could be challenging as there are some aspects of the puzzles that perhaps you would need some hints to get you going. Overall, we had a great time in this room and hopefully we will be able to try their NJ location one day as well! Check out our YouTube video above for a sneak peek at their location!
** UPDATE - We regret to inform you that "Solve The Room Hawaii" has closed its doors.
