It is a first time ever experience for me so the hour just flew by!

PROS: It is real fun to see your kids work out the clues before you do considering you are the "smart: one in the room :(
CONS: I felt that some clues, or the connection between them, is quite vague and without the help of the staff one can easily get stuck.
I bit pricey for a single hour R690.00

We enjoyed playing JMs office! We also played two rooms in Cape Town but think the JMs office is more fun and doable for two people.

I went to this escape room a few month ago, and still have not found anything in Joburg that I enjoyed this much.
The challenges are surprising, hard and really fun to solve.
There's a lot of fun to be had in a rather unassuming room, and the problems are varied from math puzzles, translations to normal deductions.

I did this with a friend and we both had such a thrill.
I'd recommend this to ANYONE in town, big groups or small.

The Johannesburg branch of Hint Hunt escape room had the most challenging room I have been to among the twenty or so I have visited. While none of the clues were impossible, we required constant string of hints to barely escape in time with a few seconds remaining. The room had a good variety of clues and almost everything we came across was used in one way or another.

Me and my husband did the JM's Office. It was so much fun for the both us. Definitely a great "couple's team building"
1 hour goes by so quickly, we were busy with the very last clue when the timer stopped.
The clues and layout is so perfect and well thought out.
We will return for the Zen room.

Hint Hunt Illovo, Jhb, SA - an absolute must-do and winner of group activities. Be surprized how clever you and friends can be solving puzzle-after-puzzle, room-by-room in just 60 minutes!
They offer two very interesting rooms: "JM's Office" and "Zen Room". After adrenalin rushing to get all the hidden clues in the first puzzle in under 60 min, we couldn't resist buying tikets for the second even more interesting Japan experience, and almost didn't make it!
You will never forget Hint Hunt once being there.
