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.

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

We had our team building here today. The day kicked off with Minute to Win It, followed by HintHunt. Great fun had by all although we could not solve the crime in time. Well worth it.

This was really the most fun I've had in a while. Definitely worth it. Something everyone with an active mind and a love for problem solving should do at least once.
