SuperPark has officially launched in Cape Town, offering fun options for the entire family, including an exciting Virtual Reality HintHunt experience.

Situated within the V&A Waterfront on Dock Road, opposite the Two Oceans Aquarium, SuperPark is a one-stop adventure destination that offers a wide range of activities to suit every age group.

Tweens, teens and adults can unleash their inner escape artist with the help of HintHunt – a world-famous game that fuses high quality escape games with breathtaking themed room designs.

Escape games require skill, patience and teamwork. Participants are locked inside a themed adventure room and need to figure out the best escape route before the hour runs out, using only the clues provided. Clues are provided to help teams work out how to beat the clock and escape, while a number of mental tasks are required to unravel the mystery.

HintHunt Cape Town offers three themed rooms along with a virtual reality area, with games directed by staff. Each room hosts up to six people per room for each game. Room themes include

  • Submarine – DeepDown. The mission: restart the engine of a sinking submarine and return to the surface
  • Shipwrecked. The mission: escape an ancient shipwreck with the treasure before the ship sinks
  • Submarine – Torpedo. The mission: ready the torpedo and find out why the submarine has vanished from radar.

Many of the games are designed for children of seven years and above if supervised by adults, and 15 years and up if unsupervised.

Also catering to older kids and adults is the virtual reality area, which features over 50 fun titles that cater to just about every sense of adventure. In HintHunt VR games, participants play as avatars instead of themselves. Visitors can play in groups or enjoy single player games such as the popular roller coaster virtual reality experience. The addition of a one way mirror in the room means that people can watch the game from the outside without interfering in the game. This ensures that participants and audiences get to enjoy plenty of laughter, fun and excitement as the action unfolds in virtual reality.

Meanwhile kids and adults of all ages have the chance to discover the fun of PlayDate, which caters to adventure-seekers from 0 to 100 years with a fully equipped adventure park that is safe, supervised and geared towards smaller children as well as older kids, parents and grandparents. PlayDate offers a safe, rewarding space for visitors of all ages to let loose and work off steam. Highlights include the Freestyle Zone, 3D Maze, Game Zone, Mini Golf, High Line Course and many others.

SuperPark is open Monday to Sunday between 10h00 and 19h00, closing at 18h00 during winter. A range of ticket options are available, including one and two-hour sessions and full day passes.
