This is a great time for anyone who is keen on puzzles and problem solving. It was fun & challenging and has really great atmosphere and detail. I felt like I was in an rpg or hidden object game. I will definitely be going back for the other games. Highly recommended.

When you are in Cape Town this must definitely go onto the "to-do" list. It is something completely different and original. It challenges you to think outside the box and work as a team. I did not think we would be able to complete it but managed to escape with just 15 seconds remaining. So much fun.

An amazing, fun-filled game which gets one thinking. Also, it's perfect for team building or even to have a great laugh with friends whilst figuring out the mysteries. Thanx to our gamesmater Fabian.

After having experienced escape rooms all over the world, I can tell HintHunt has still a long way to become a good one. We did escape, but we received too many hints from the staff. And that was not because the riddles were tough, but just because there were too many false friends. You will spend your time just looking... More

HintHuntSA, Manager at HintHunt South Africa, responded to this review

Thank you for the feedback. Although I think that based on the overwhelming odds in favour of HintHunt being amazing, coupled with the fact that it seems poor reviews are very common with you, we feel this comment rather unfair. Not sure what you mean about 'false friends or hints?' At no point do we EVER provide false HINTS. I... More

Have played both rooms in this amazing, one of a kind game. Zen room wouldn't let me out but great time had by all as we played with unbelievable energy and great fun. Most exciting, family fun hour you can have.
