Escape Room –  5336-0087-0140

Barney’s Rainbow Deathrun – 4750-4070-3194

Best hide and seek Fortnite maps

Hide and seek is one of the oldest games going and it remains fun – even in games! Fortnite has a mode for just this and there are lots of maps that are made with the game in mind – like the ones below. Now excuse us while we head off to play the Honey, I Shrunk the Skins one.

Ruined Remains 2.0 – 5636-1824-2208

A single hunter vs a bunch of time travellers is the name of the game here in this infection based hide and seek game. The real fun is that the hunter can turn the opposition which means that you will always be left with doubt as to whether you can trust someone who is meant to be on your team.

Honey, I Shrunk the Skins – 7133-6656-4742

This is a fun one and as the name, a spin on the popular movie series, suggests, you will be hiding and seeking in a world that is far bigger than you are used to – or you a far smaller than you are used to. Either way, this is great fun and one we keep being drawn back to.

Hide and Seek Mansion – 2984-0520-2397

As you would expect, this is a large location (well, it is a mansion) and with that comes all sorts of places that you can hide. There are so many in fact that we could not even begin to list them all and it definitely is a map that lends itself perfectly to a good old game of Hide and Seek.

Underwater Labs Hide & Seek – 8860-9125-6937

Like the mansion, the scope of this one makes it best played with a large group of players as there are many places that you can hold up in the hope of not being discovered. From spots under rugs to an actual water tank, the job of the people doing the seeking can be quite tough here!
