it transpired that we all had different expectations of what we might be doing in a room for one hour. However we pulled things together to complete the challenge with a little bit of help with just 43 seconds to go. This is a very memorable experience and our 12 year old is already asking is she can have a... More

I'm from the United States and had done one similar in Orlando, Florida called the Escape Room. So when I found this one on trip advisor, I HAD to try this one out while we were in Cape Town and I must say, we were all quite impressed and had LOADS of fun! This Hint Hunt was way more cohesive... More

We had so much fun working our way through the Zen Room puzzle. We finished it! (With a little help from the hints on the screen.) Totally worth your time!

Hint Hunt is an extraordinary experience. I have played both the games they have to offer and enjoyed both thoroughly. I would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town. Great way to spend an hour!

We took our indoor cricket team to play as a team building experience. We had such an awesome time from start to finish. We were made feel welcome and those with claustrophobia were reassured nothing is too over bearing. Our game master Sascha was amazing. We recommend that everyone has her :)

If you looking for new and fresh, this is it! In a age of techno HintHunt is all about team work, communicating and using your head, and I don't mean in a boring way. I absolutely loved it, so much fun! Defiantly going to play The Zen room next. HintHunt just do it!

Hint hunt was the highlight of my Cape Town experience. Best 60 minutes of my life. Everyone needs to play this awesome live escape game. Such friendly staff too. Hint Hunt definitely deserves more than 5 stars... it's such a lot of fun :)

I did this as part of my bachelorette weekend away in cape town, and we absolutely loved it! I can't wait to go back and try the Zen room. The clues and the room were so well-planned out, you almost feel like you're solving a real crime. Fans of point & click games like Broken Sword will love this!
