NOW OPEN: Escape Hunt Experience Umhlanga

6 rooms. 3 different adventures. 1 escape key.

If you haven’t heard of the all-new Escape Hunt Experience that’s just opened, then you’re in for a treat!

Located in the heart of Umhlanga, the Escape Hunt Experience is one of over 40 different franchises from all over the world!

So… what is it?

That’s exactly the question a group of us had when we decided to try out the experience for ourselves.

With 4 of us in a team, we headed down to Escape Hunt and had to choose between two games: Rampage of the Ripper or Lost in Time. After much pondering, we decided on Rampage of the Ripper.

We were greeted by a friendly Escape Hunt host, who gave us the low down on what to expect, how to play and all the do’s and don’ts.

It was finally time to play!

He led us into a dimly lit room, and shut the door. We were taken back to the 1800’s where the Ripper had us fearing for our lives. With fun props and carefully thought out decor to match, it truly felt as if it was all real!

The timer displaying 60 minutes on the wall then began to count down.

Our mission? We were detectives investigating mysterious killings made by the Ripper and only had an hour to bring back the piece of evidence by solving various riddles – else we’d all become his next victims!

Needless to say, we didn’t make it out in time – but the experience was INCREDIBLE! We laughed, we debated and we ran around frantically. All in all, the experience taught us that teamwork is incredibly important. We also learnt that a few of us had hidden talents we never knew about before!

The Escape Hunt experience is ideal for anyone. Whether you’re looking for an unique date night idea, a family bonding outing or an interactive and fun team-building activity!

A 60 minute game costs R220 per person, but gets cheaper the more people you have in your team. A family special starting from the 1 June on Sundays will get you in for R150pp each!
