Here is the best escape game room Johannesburg

With just 60 minutes to escape, it’s an enthusiastic scramble of theories! The underlining element throughout HintHunt escape is definitely their surprise bit. So whether or not you can actually escape, it really doesn’t matter, because either way you will be WOWED…!” 

We had 5 minutes remaining and desperately wanted to escape! At this stage we were not sure we were going to. At least I wasn’t. The clues were everywhere! But, in the end we were scrambling, perhaps even fumbling!

There strategy works. Their service works. Therefore I can honestly see why HintHunt has remained at the top of the pile being rated Tripadvisor’s number 1 attraction in London, Paris, Cape Town and Dubai. And it is fast becoming the favoured venue in Johannesburg.

The Escape game craze took Europe by storm with hundreds of games opening within a short space of time. As a result HintHunt began as a concept in the garage of 2 Hungarian gentlemen. After 6 months of designing, planning, building and testing, they opened their first branch in London. In 2013 their partnership brought HintHunt to Cape Town making it Africa’s original Live Escape game.

The standard approach to escape games globally is to open a few rooms in a space which has a low rental cost. But HintHunt realised that they could offer far more than just an escape game! Having opened in premium locations they offer functions venues, catering and bar services and additional activities which can be coupled with the HintHunt experience.


What ever you do, don’t give up! We didn’t, and it was only when the clock struck 00:00 that the door buzzed alight and opened. And what an exciting feeling! The game requires great communication, a variety of skill sets and the ability to work under pressure in order to succeed. Each member has an important role to play in the game.

I think in the end teams come out having accomplished a great deal and having learned about themselves and their colleagues. This while having the most fun. It truly is a unique experience and one which is memorable for all the right reasons.
