Surprise and delight are at the core of everything we do. We like to completely disregard all comfort zones (kidding, sort of). We all have our limits, but we’ve become experts at recognizing how and where to push boundaries to create genuinely incredible experiences for people.
Since day one Mystery has sought out the best of the best—from our team, to the vendors, creators, and magic makers we call partners. Our world is full of some bad*ss, talented people, and that’s who we work with. Period.
What do a first date, a really cool job interview, and skydiving all have in common? The unknown. Well, more like a desired outcome and excitement paired with those butterflies you get with the unknown. We strike just the right balance to achieve that feeling each time.
Whether it’s intentionally using your company’s colors to provide a moment of recognition or connecting you to the perfect event for your uniquely blended team, some real magic happens when you feel like something was crafted just for you.
A lot of hard work on our end makes magic easy for you. By pairing our experts and our technology with some basic information from you, we’re able to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences sure to score you major brownie points.
Mystery (then “Thrilla”) kicks off in private beta. A night out you don’t have to plan.
Mystery Launches just before Valentine’s Day. 1,000s sign up, friends pitch in, and the worst snowstorm in a decade leads to LOTS of cancellations. 💔
A year later we turned an idea into a scalable business. We raised money from incredible investors, hired amazing people, built deep customer love on both sides of our marketplace and created truly special technology to power the whole thing.
A surprise night out wasn’t what people needed anymore. Our suppliers needed our help, and our customers needed something to do. Putting half a million back into local businesses during this time is still something we’re extremely proud of.
COVID changed the workplace forever. Teams were less connected, everyone felt less motivated, and no one had an answer other than really terrible virtual events.
We launched products for businesses that bring people together through magical experiences. Over 150 companies signed up in the first month and hundreds more would soon follow in the months to come.
We’re delighting more people than ever before. We’ve found product fit (again) with B2B and are focused on scaling magical experiences across enterprise. Everything we know about experience design, advanced logistics, and automation is being used to bring teams together at scale. That’s pretty cool.
If these last couple years have taught us anything, it’s that you can’t predict what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone beyond that. But we’re ready and excited to bring surprise and delight wherever we go. There are worse ways to spend your nine-to-five.
Want in on all the surprise and delight? It's pretty fun over here if we do say so ourselves.
