Ah, the beautiful island of Maui. Everywhere that you look is picturesque. Our cruise ship had to tender and you want to make sure which side of the island it's docked as this could be either a very short trip or a very long one. Mystery Maui Escape Room is around 10 minutes from the airport but is about a 40 minute drive from where our cruise ship docked on the West side of the island at the Lahaina Pier. We enjoyed the scenic drive and arrived at Mystery Maui bright and early. There's a clear sign for you to turn into into the back parking lot and you'll see a big sign for it. As we entered the second floor, the lobby area is very nicely designed with a beautiful graffiti mural. They also have a very comfortable waiting area with puzzles for their guests.
Currently they have two rooms with the third room in the making. We only had time to try one of them and being the foodies that we are, we had to go with "The Ramen Shop". Instantly, we felt very hungry when we entered the room. Other than the smell of the ramen, we felt completely immersed by the room design. The story was that a well known Ramen chef - Masato is missing and we had to find out what happened to him. The storyline was very clear as well as game flow. The room was definitely doable by two people but it's spacious enough for four. There are puzzles that can be tackled simultaneously although you may be able to complete it rather quickly with four people if you have played many escape rooms before. We also took a sneak peek of their other room "Stella Superstar!" which had a complete opposite feel of the bright and happy vibe in the Ramen Shop. This room's set design felt more eerie and "dark" from the beginning. The theme for this room is the superstar Stella invited you to her home for a private performance of her new song but soon you'll discover this is too good to be true. Hmm....I wonder what's going to happen? We can't wait to return to test out that room one day! The owners are super talented and they build all their rooms in-house. We can't wait to see what they create next! Check out our YouTube video above for a sneak peek of the location, interview with the owner, the room and more!
