HintHunt is a new simple and fun escape game, designed for small groups of 3-6 people. You get 60 minutes to climb a mountain of puzzles and mysteries in a tiny room. The goal is simple yet challenging: get out in time! Else ... You could be trapped inside forever! During this engaging and challenging game team members truly live and breathe in union for an hour.

I found the hint hunt rooms very fun and exciting to be in. The various puzzles and challenges were incredibly fun to do and the clues were very helpful. For a team building exercise I highly recommend the Hint Hunt.
