Cape Town's most loved group activity

what people say about us

'I've been here three times already and I wish I could get amnesia just to get the feeling again.'
Pravesh V.

'An hour of focused problem solving, fueled by adrenaline, and punctuated with laughter!'

Welcome to HintHunt!

The original live escape game

Today there are two types of people on Earth: the ones who rave about mind-bending live escape games and the ones who have never heard of them. Gradually the first group is eating the second one. Alive. Literally.

Okay, stop. What’s going on?

It is very tricky to describe the concept of a Live Escape Game at first, but once you try it, the genre is obvious! HintHunt provides you with an unforgettable experience when you and your friends solve puzzles, open locks in a fast-paced hour where you will laugh a lot.

Our games are exciting yet challenging and have been perfectly designed for groups of 2-6 people regardless of knowledge or any specific skills. (The ideal number of players can vary according to the games/local legal requirements. Please, find more information on the booking page of your selected location.) Players are locked in our themed room and must put together the hidden clues they find to overcome various mental tasks they encounter in order to escape the room before the 60 minute timer hits 0!

Submarine - DeepDown


You are a team of adventurers who have boarded the lost ship of Captain Kelman. Legend has it that Captain Kelman and his crew plundered the royal vessel and stole Queen Elizabeth's most prized possession: her set of pearls which have been in the Royal family for generations. Should you recover the pearls, you and your team will be handsomely rewarded.

However, a deadly storm is on the horizon and you have just 60 minutes to escape with the pearls before the abandoned ship is hit by the storm and sunk - losing the prized pearls and treasures on board forever!
