We had a blast in outer space! My children are 9 and 15. They both liked it. The 4 of us worked together and had fun. We are looking forward to returning and trying another themed adventure very soon!

We went to do one and ended up doing all three. Recommend a minimum of four people especially for Tomb and Deep Space. Also one tall person is helpful. The technology enhances the experience. We have done other escape rooms before, and these were tops.

Although a tad overpriced, our visit to 5 Wits was very enjoyable. The staff is very nice and helpful, and the place is clean and inviting. We did 2 of the adventures, Draco's Castle and Tomb with our 13yo daughter and all of us thought...More

I was pleasantly surprised on the "disneyesque" type of entertainment. Three of us were able to do the session alone which was preferable to being with a group of other people you don't know. Very interactive and enjoyable. We did the tomb and plan on...More

If you enjoy adventures and puzzle solving like you see in video games like Legend of Zelda or Uncharted, well, you'll get an experience similar to that. I tried the 'easy' and the 'intermediate' one which was the 'tomb' and the 'castle' one respectively, if...More

Hi Toyia, We recommend ages 7 and up. There are moments of darkness and load sound effects in the adventures which can frighten some younger children.
