Overview

HintHunt is a new simple and fun escape game, designed for small groups of 3-6 people. You get 60 minutes to climb a mountain of puzzles and mysteries in a tiny room. The goal is simple yet challenging: get out in time! Else ... You could be trapped inside forever! During this engaging and challenging game team members truly live and breathe in union for an hour.

HintHunt is a definite must-do in Joburg! Both rooms were tons of fun and it was quite an exciting challenge. The staff are amazing and it was an experience that I’d love to have again. Hopefully they introduce some new rooms in the future :)

We have been to several escape rooms around the world, Prague, USA and Budapest and HintHunt is the best one yet! We did it for our year-end. Such awesome fun and something different I would highly recommend it.

A great hour spent. Having done a room in Cape Town we were keen to do as such in Jozi. Warm welcome and friendly staff. The place is spotless. Another good room with amazing clues. I am noting though that prices are slowly creeping upwards.More
