This is our last stop in Maui, Hawaii. Submerged Maui is uniquely located in the Wailea Beach Resort - Marriott. The drive to the escape room had us enter into this little hidden oasis of Wailea accompanied by beautiful golf courses. As we pull up to the hotel, the beautiful open air lobby got our attention right away. Valet is complimentary if you are here to play Submerged and they will validate it for you. The hotel also has other vendors like souvenir shops, Starbucks, and restaurants. You can definitely relax and spend some time here. You can walk to the beach from the stairs of the hotel in the back. Submerged Maui has a desk just to the left of the valet area. We envied the owner's everyday working condition as we don't mind NOT escaping from here ever.
Once we enter the submarine structure, we were debriefed with a video explaining our mission. We were suppose to retrieve the Pele's Stone to complete our mission. As our adventure began in the deep sea, there were numerous exciting puzzles which led to different "effects" that would happen as we completed the puzzles. This definitely felt like a film production quality set design. The sound, lights, lazers, fog effects all played its part perfectly. The game puzzle pieces used were all well made as well and there was a good mixture of key locks and the puzzles were not difficult as the instruction book was quite clear to follow. We felt that this escape room was meant for players to have fun rather than challenge them with difficult puzzles so that they can't escape. We enjoyed this as it was the story that intrigued us with this well designed room. We were able to escape with time left to spare so whether you come with a small group of experts or a large group of newbies, you'll all be able to enjoy the game.
Currently, the owner doesn't have another room in the works but we look forward to trying anything that they will come up with in the near future! Check out our YouTube video above for a sneak peek of the location, interview with the owner, the room and more!
ETR Overall rating: 10/10
