Addicted to the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and enigmas of all kinds? The Hint Hunt is for you!

Actually, Live escape game, though new in Paris, tends to become the new fashionable activity that can be played with family members of all ages, friends or colleagues. At first, i was doubtful when i saw it was topping the list of attractions in Paris in Tripadvisor. So, i decided to give a try at HintHunt. And guess what? It really was.

Imagine yourself stuck with your team in a room. Your goal: to succeed to get out in less than 60 minutes by solving a series of enigmas, breaking codes and deciphering messages.

Within the same concept, you have the choice between 2 puzzles:

– The enigma of the office of James Murdock (JM Office) located 62 rue Beaubourg (a murder mystery room). A perfect introduction to the concept in a Parisian atmosphere of the 90s.

– The enigma of the Japanese Zen Room (Zen Room) located 58 rue Beaubourg (a perfect location in the 3rd arrondissement at the heart of Paris, where Paristay has a number of the finest Vacation rentals. )

HintHunt with its two rooms is a guarantee of excitement, joy, fun and also fear. A game that will bring euphoria and adrenaline to the table!

I’m not going to spoil the surprise for you, just keep in mind three rules: inspect every corner to find clues, think about the usefulness of your findings, and most importantly communicate with your teammates. This is a real fun activity that can better bond your relations with your family, friends and businesses. If your kids are always playing Detective Conan (and who isn’t?), they will LOVE it!

The game is designed for teams of 3 to 5 people . You will need to focus your efforts, use all your brains and constantly communicate to share your discoveries. If you block completely, the master of the game will give you some hints on the screen.

In short, run ahead it’s very fun, very clever and unique. Will you take the challenge and go above your limits?

PS: Do not forget to leave a comment to tell us  in how much time you have succeeded to solve the enigma and get out. The record till now is 54 minutes!
