HintHunt® is a new simple and fun live escape game, designed for small groups of 3-5 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.


How many? What size? How old? When and why? How much?
If you’d like to learn more about group sizes, room dimensions, prices & age limits … this section must have your answer! However if you can’t find it, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line!

HintHunt Rooms

HintHunt has 6 game rooms at the moment. Two John Monroes Office rooms (the first HintHunt creation), two Zen Rooms and two Submarines. All games are designed around the same concept (60 min escape challenge) and are excellent for competition.

Regarding the size of the rooms – we’d like to keep the mystery around it, but none of them are too tiny or too big (imagine around 10 square metres with minimal furniture). Claustrophobic people have been playing HintHunt without a problem – but certainly we could help instantly, should any kind of emergency arise.

Team sizes

Minimum 3 – maximum 5 (Submarine room) & 6 (Zen room, John Monroe Office) people can play in each room. We have tested both ends of these limits – in case of duos the game might become too complicated to enjoy and above 6 the place becomes too crowded, so please stick to the advised team sizes of 3, 4, 5 or 6.

… what if it’s just the 2 of us?

We wouldn’t want to be too demanding about the team size, but it is good to know before booking that with only 2 people the game becomes a bit too difficult, which might spoil the fun part. Therefore we usually advise people to bring at least 3 members play HintHunt. Certainly, if you decide to take this risk and are willing to pay the HH Minimum fee of R600.00 we will do everything we can to make the most of your game experience.

Gift vouchers

If you’d like to give the game experience as a gift to your friends or relatives, HintHunt’s gift voucher is the answer. If you’d like to buy one, please email capetown@hinthunt.com for details. The gift vouchers are valid for 6 months (more precisely: vouchers must be redeemed for a HintHunt game that takes place within 180 days after purchase date).

Age limits

The minimum age of HintHunt is 9 years if coming with parents or 15 in case no adults are around. The main reason of this limit is the complexity of the game. (It’s also good to know that expecting women have enjoyed HintHunt many times before – no scary stuff or physical excercise is expected during the game.)


If you’d like to simply reserve one game, please use our booking system to find an appropriate slot.

If you feel like bringing more friends and would like to book two rooms at the same time, please turn to our booking system and look for parallel availabilities in two of our rooms. You’ll see a time-shift between the timetables, but we can make sure both your teams start together if the bookings are under the same name. (Usually a double John Monroe game creates the most popular experience, mainly because of its exciting competitive atmosphere.)


When the big day arrives and you come to HintHunt with your friends, families or colleagues – please try to arrive at least 15mins before the game.

Games and instructions are rotating constantly so early birdies might need to wait a little, while late birds might cause delays for other teams. Which is not cool.

The effective game time will be 60 minutes, however we need a couple of minutes before each session to complete the introduction and instructions.


HintHunt ticket price is R200.00 per person and vary depending on team sizes and peak times. Please have a look at our booking site to find out more.

Please also be aware that HintHunt is a live event and therefore once the booking is confirmed, refunds, cancellations or reschedules are not accepted.
