  • The props and decorations were top of the line. This is a generation 3 game that means it has no locks, and all electronics. The room itself was amazing but it wasn't an escape room. There were no clu...  more »

  • 5wits is an awesome place to be if you are looking to have a great time with friends. the adventures are not just for kids either.

  • This was a really fun experience for two adults (25). You're thrown into a well put together world and you have to figure out what to do. My only complaint would be the space mission was really really loud, and hints are given a bit too soon. Otherwise it's totally worth a visit (hint, take advantage of their buy one get one deal when you go to certain restaurants in the mall, it makes it significantly cheaper, $30 for two people for all four adventures)
  • You have to be lucky or show up at the right time to have a decent experience without paying a high premium. Rather than queue groups, the staff will try to group up to 12 random people into one puzzle area. They'll have you enter into the back area with your own group -- wait a few moments -- and then send ANOTHER group in behind you. It feels very deceptive. Why is this a problem? The puzzles themselves are amusing and mostly fun, but most are designed for groups of 4 or 5 and you generally want to *win* the puzzle. If you're grouped up with a bunch of kids or a large group it turns into a zoo. We turned around and got a refund after we got grouped up with a family and their kids -- we didn't want to spoil the fun for them as a bunch of strangers took over the controls. With large groups several people will have to sit out on puzzles or watch someone else complete the puzzle. Boring, not fun, and certainly not worth the price at that point. They offer a "private" pass, but the price is outrageously high. You're charged an extra $7 per person -- easily doubling whatever price you paid to begin with. Insane. The staff was fortunately understanding of our situation and were quite pleasant. I wish they were more upfront on how the queueing works. In summary: I would avoid unless you have a larger group of friends or family... or you're willing to pay double the entrance price for a private session.
  • This place is incredible. So much fun to do each adventure and the staff is fantastic. Buy all 4, it's the best deal and you can come back to do them later. The thing I was most impressed by is the superb production quality. It really felt like an attraction at a mega theme park, like Universal Studios. Can't wait to go back!
  • This is a unique place it's so cool! They have some cool simulations
  • Simulation options are very creative, exciting, and fun. Go be a secret agent for a day and be challenged.
