MIT Mystery Hunt 2005 was the 25th iteration of the MIT Mystery Hunt. It was run by Setec Astronomy, the winners of the 2004 Mystery Hunt. The hunt was set in the city of Normalville, which was celebrating their Centennial Celebration, when a series of meteor showers interrupted the celebration. Teams were tasked to collect these meteor fragments, getting pieces of a superhero outfit in the process. There were six different colors of puzzles, and each color corresponded to a round. Moreover, each round has two metas, one using one set of answers, and another using both the first set as well as a second set (marked with stars).
