I hate escape rooms- so when my boyfriend suggested 5 Wits I was apprehensive. However, it is VERY different from a traditional escape room. The sound effects, lights, props, etc. are so far above any escape rooms. You feel like you are transported into another...More

I heard about this place on room escape review sites, and the 5 Wits reviews were always exclaiming. So we decided to try it out for ourselves and I would say it lived up to the hype. The puzzles and the rooms are very well...More

Our family had a great time working together on all 3 adventures! We quickly realized the value of teamwork and got everyone involved in the action. It was challenging enough to keep the adults interested but not so difficult that it frustrated the kids. Sometimes...More
