Spend a night in the iconic ‘Scooby Doo’ Mystery Machine

“Scooby Doo”, the first live-action feature film featuring the mystery-solving gang from the popular animated series was released in 2002, starring Matthew Lillard as Scooby’s best friend, Shaggy. Twenty years later, Lillard is celebrating the anniversary by hosting three totally groovy overnight stays in the iconic Mystery Machine van (monsters not included).

The Mystery Machine is available for three one-night stays for up to two people on June 24, 25, and 26, 2022 overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, CA.

What can you expect from your night in the Mystery Machine?

Guests will be immersed in Scooby-worthy nostalgia as they live as Shaggy and Scooby Doo in the Mystery Machine, including:

Mystery Machine - Interior
  • A virtual greeting from Matthew Lillard on arrival, who says, “I might even share some of my favorite memories with the kids mingling.”
  • Memories from 2002, including listening to Sugar Ray on a portable CD player by lava lamp glow — guests can even try on Shaggy’s signature puka shell necklace.
  • All-you-can-eat snacks and a choice of dinner selection that includes Shaggy and Scooby’s favorites (like hot dogs and eggplant burgers)
  • Mystery games to test your own mystery-solving skills
  • A night vision of “Scooby-Doo”, complete with popcorn, candy and all the Scooby snacks you can eat.
  • An outdoor setup to take in the ocean view with lounge seating and hammock space, but Lillard promises “no monsters lurking.”

As host, Lillard will greet guests virtually, but an on-site concierge will be on hand upon arrival to assist with check-in and ensure a comfortable stay (including arranging meals).

Scooby fans booking this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity should note that the rules for this stay require strict adherence to local COVID-19 guidelines. On-site staff will follow applicable local, state, and federal policies and Airbnb’s Covid-19 safety practices, which include wearing a mask and practicing social distancing when required by local laws or guidelines and adherence to an enhanced five-step cleaning process.
