“Fiendishly Difficult Family Fun!”
Review of HintHunt

HintHunt
Ranked #4 of 378 Fun & Games in London
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I booked this for SWMBO and our three kids as part of a couple of days in London.

Getting to the venue is very straight forward, turn left out of Euston station and walk for 5 minutes and it's on the right hand side about 5 mins away.

We chose the Zen room, where we had to decipher some clues and solve problems to effect our escape within 1 hour. There were plenty of hints to keep us going when we were running down some blind alleys!

We escaped with 13 seconds to spare!

A great way to spend an hour or so when you're in London!!

Dear Nick,
we are very happy you had a great time with your family at HintHunt. Looks like you used your time pretty wisely if escaped in the last minute.. But why get out earlier if you payed for 1 hour?? :))
PS: First sentence of your review got me thinking... I had to get help from he -who knows everything (Google), and it made me laugh for a good hour or so. IMMD LoL ;-)

Our party consisted of 2 50-somethings and 3 teenagers. This was one of the few attractions we visited in London which we ALL enjoyed. We did the Zen room and everyone wants to go back to do the other room as soon as possible.

We've been to Clue Quest before this game which is very similar so we wanted to play it again only a different puzzle.. For this experience we came to the game late, therfore we were to push the whole schedule behind because the day was fully booked. I guess the hint hunt person that was with us wanted us to not be any more late, thus giving us so many helping hints in order for us to finish... Bottom line is we only really solved the first third of the game and the rest was following instructions..

Still love the game, and would recommend it to people :)

Yes, that's true, Lubna H, we are pretty much fully booked - thanks to our lovely and wonderful reviewers like yourself and their tons of recommendations. Also true that unfortunately we have only limited tolerance for lateness as most of the pre-booked places all around the world. Glad to hear you loved the game though and hope to see you back soon- on time ;-)

Can't recommend this enough. Went as a group of 4 friends and escaped James Murdoch's office with 4 minutes to spare. Had a great welcome from the staff and a thoroughly awesome time. So much so that we've just booked ourselves into the Zen room for another challenge in October. Can't wait!

Dear Laura A,
Wooow, looks like you've got luxurious amount of time to spare in JM's Office. We're ready to challenge you again in our Zen room! I can guarantee it is NOT designed to find your inner peace! :)) So please do come back and even break your own record! We are waiting for you.. ;-)

We visited as an office team of 15 so had 3 rooms. It was fantastic! Won't give anything away but the challenges are great fun, anyone can join in & you feel really exhilarated at the end (even though none of us escaped!!) everyone has given feedback that it was great fun & we hope the rooms will be revamped so we can go again. Really fab entertainment!

Dear loobylooLondon,
Thank you very much for sharing your positive experience with us, and still not spoiling the fun for future gamers! We don't change the rooms, but we create new rooms instead, you prepare yourself for the next challenge! ;-)
