HintHunt – The escape Game
A mind-boggling, brain-twisting live team escape game that delights the mental muscles and makes for a brilliant Mother City memory.
The escape game is a fun and unique game designed for a small group of 3-5 people – which is groundbreaking as a team building activity. The team must work together for 60 minutes to solve a mountain of puzzle and mysteries in a tiny room, that will ultimately lead to escape.
Go Rock Climbing
They are not wet and slippery because it’s all inside. CityRock facilities include a large bouldering area (bouldering is climbing 3-4 metres high with a rope) and high walls for roped climbing. However, they also cater to a different audience – from first-time kids to experienced outdoor climbers and everyone in between.
Play golf in a cave
Cave gold is an indoor 18-hole putt-putt course inside a man-made cave, with an assortment of tricky angles, uneven surfaces, steep hills and awkward obstacles. However, it shares its space with the Kids Scratch Patch Kids play area in the V&A Waterfront.
Visit the Labia
The oldest independent cinema in Africa and shows independent art films. Various film festivals are also run here and they have great two for one special (including a meal at restaurants in the neighbourhood) on different nights for the week.
Best of all, they have a fully-stocked bar at the cinema, so grab your popcorn and a warming glass of red and forget about the grey day outside.
