“Great team fun. Definitely going again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

This was a great experience, great introduction from staff, super friendly. The room was set up excellently. I would definitely recommended this for team events, but also for groups of friends who want to do something different. Great value.

“Excellent day out for the family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Organised as a surprise event of the family - everyone loved it. I was surprised and pleased how the teenagers threw themselves into the series of tasks and puzzles and we worked well as a team. Came out feeling we'd achieved, even though we didn't manage to escape from the room in the given time. Felt like we'd had a good day out - whereas the event is only an hour. Would highly recommend for families or team bonding!

Aaw, thank you so much for your posting, BunniesRgo! We love to read that families managed to have fun together at HintHunt, by working together and bonding through this brain training. It's not an easy task to find a proper and satisfying activity for the whole family, specially in a word of computer games and tablets. It looks like you succeeded!

“Phenomenal. could not recommend higher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Hadnt even heard of this until I bought a groupon voucher for it one day - and since this one - ive been to a couple of other similar ones round the country.

none of them really compare with regards to how complex and well thought out it all was though.

only downside is that the place is very difficult to find

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

This place is good. You'll need to reserve in advance.
You have about an hour to solve the clues, the staff do help to make sure you are not completely lost.
Worth going in a group.

“From ages 14 - 64, everybody had a great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

What a wonderfully different day out with my family! We were a group of seven so we got two rooms at the same time. Had a terrific time and everybody in the family, grandparents, parents, kids and a boyfriend, had great fun while communicating a lot and exercising the brain.

Tons of thanks to the HintHunt team who helped us out with our booking and made some arrangements so our whole party could come together and enjoy themselves.

You need to talk together and help each other out, I find that very refreshing in these latest times of smart phones, tablets and computers. Nice to look up from the screens and do something fun together.

Recommend 100%!
