Join the HintHunt Family


HintHunt created a new Genre in Social Gaming. Our top-rated Escape Concept is the winner on Tripadvisor’s #1 Social Experience globally. 

What is HintHunt?

Our Concept

HintHunt is an exciting yet challenging live escape game that has been perfectly designed for groups of 3-5 people. Players are locked in a themed room and must put together the hidden clues they find to overcome various puzzles they encounter in order to escape the room before the 60 minute timer hits 0! 

Our Future

HintHunt’s mission is to become the world’s leading innovative producer and provider in the interactive gaming industry. HintHunt aims to accomplish this through engaging all 5 senses with the experiences they provide which in turn lead to absolute involuntary moments of “wow” that bring back childhood joys through technology and human interactions.

Our History

Founded in early 2012, HintHunt revitalised the concept of live escape games by bringing them out of a worn and torn basement and transforming it into a globally acceptable high street experience, thereby making them the pioneer in raising the quality of escape games.
Now that the industry is well known and adjusted to the new standards, we have decided to raise the bar once again to stay ahead of the competition. HintHunt has become the very first live escape game to franchise, allowing us to expand our reach to various cities around the world and provide over a 100,000 smiles per year.
As of 2015 HintHunt introduced the next generation of live entertainment which allows multiple play modes. By masterfully merging the online and offline world, HintHunt has opened up a range of fresh and amazing possibilities not just for the players but operators alike.
