Your guide to what to do and where to go this Freedom Day in Cape Town
Have a Happy Birthday at HintHunt
Trade Table Dancing and Bottle Service for a Birthday You’re Sure to Remember
They say growing old is mandatory, and that growing up is optional. So, for your birthday, why not indulge your inner child during a round of this thrilling live-action escape game. Created to bend your mind with cryptic riddles, puzzles, quandaries and conundrums; HintHunt is your answer to good, honest and guileless fun.
It works like this: groups between three and six participants are locked in a room for one hour and are required to channel their inner Sherlock Holmes to decipher mysteries and teasers in order to secure their freedom before the allocated time is up.
Voted the city’s leading attraction in 2014, you can expect to be tricked, treated, tested and time for what is sure to be a good time guaranteed for all party members and, of course, the guest of honor.
Pick between the six replica rooms that have four different challenges hidden inside. Solve a murder in the detective-themed John Monroe’s Office challenge, investigate a crime in the Japanese-inspired Zen rooms, and save a submarine in either Torpedo or Deep Down- in the Submarine rooms. Numerous rooms offering the same challenges means different groups can enter at the same time and compete to see who makes it out first (if they even make it out at all!).
HintHunt, geared towards igniting your curiosity, is thought provoking and challenging. It’s highly entertaining, and players inevitably leave the game feeling pumped up, invigorated and, well, ready to keep the party going. If this is the case, you could follow the game with drinks at the in-house bar.
BOOKING AND PRICING FOR A BIRTHDAY AT HINTHUNT CAPE TOWN
The price of games depends on which challenge you decide to do and how many participants play in a room. Both the Zen and Submarine rooms are considered a little more difficult and it’s advised first-timers attempt the John Monroe Office.
However, if you’re gung ho about completing the most challenging room you can go for it! Prices range between R200 - R300 per person.
When picking the room you want to tackle, enquire the cost of each. Bookings must be made in advance as this popular game is always busy. To make a reservation, visit HintHunt’s website and click through to the online booking system – it’s quick, easy and convenient, or call +27 (0)21 448 9864.
