I took my 2 kids, aged 8 and 10, to 5-wits 2 years ago and had a blast. The kids thoroughly enjoyed solving the puzzles. We were on a small group of only about 6 people so they got to be very hands-on. We went back this year and thought it'd be different since there are supposedly several different solutions.... More

Thanks for coming back! While the puzzles are always the same, there are in fact five different endings to our Espionage show - what ending you get depends entirely on your performance. If you haven't yet seen 20,000 Leagues, definitely come check it out! And if you have, check out our Halloween show this fall, 20,000 Leagues Lights OUT. It... More

We you get there, there are two "tour" options: espionage, and 20,000 leagues under the sea. I only did espionage, but a friend who did both explained it to me. In espionage, they create a spy plot where you have to solve physical and mental puzzles to get to the end. For each of the tours you get a guide... More

Thanks for taking the time to check out Espionage! We're glad to hear you enjoyed it. If you're looking for even more mental puzzles, definitely check out 20,000 Leagues. The show gets pretty heavy on them towards the middle, plus there's a fantastic finale! More

Over the years I've actually been through all three of their attractions (Espionage, 20,000 Leagues and Tomb) twice each. Good fun. (Tomb has now moved elsewhere.) I particularly like Espionage. The modern theme works well with the modern technology that is used to run the game, so it all feels fairly 'believable' And the puzzles are well integrated -- they... More

Thanks so much for the repeated visits! We love when our guests come back to visit us again, and we always like hearing what they have to say. We hope to see you again in the future (remember, Espionage has five different endings!) and if you ever find yourself up by Syracuse, NY, check out our sister store there for... More

Just seemed like it was going to be exciting, and it was stupid. The pictures were not accurate, it was disappointing.

I have always wanted to try one of these, so while waiting for my daughters concert to start we decided to give it a try. Definitely more fun for a younger crowd, but I made the best of it. A few puzzles stumped me so i was glad there were others in the party to help. I think it would... More

A great play date or birthday celebration. Entertaining and different every visit. Best to go in a group of 4 or more to maximize the enjoyment. Looking to keep kids entertained on a rainy day? This is it! Options are spy adventure or 20,000 leagues - our favorite is the spy option.

Hi Steven, I'm sorry to hear you felt that way. Our shows are actually intended more for an older crowd, but we often find that the makeup of the group can affect the impression of the experience. We do offer shows every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday that are reserved strictly for guests 18+ so that adult guests can really get... More

Overall, I would say that this was a pretty neat, but overpriced experience. We walked through the 20,000 Leagues adventure for my son's 9th birthday party. Keep in mind that this was nine 9-year-olds, two adult chaperones and the tour guide. Pretty difficult to get everyone organized and on the same page. So it was loud and a little manic... More

Devon, Thank you for choosing to visit 5 Wits for your son's birthday party. We hope that everyone in your party enjoyed the show. We do give our guides a degree of freedom within the show to tailor the experience as best we can to your group, although the show itself does have certain parameters. If you feel that for... More

We did the Espionage attraction, with a nine year old and 13 year old. They loved it! Really took it seriously, enjoyed the guide who did a great acting job and playing along. They talked about all of the different codes that they cracked and how they did it when we got home. They want to go back to do... More

We're glad to hear you all enjoyed our Espionage adventure. We hope to see you back soon for 20,000 Leagues. It is very different from Espionage, but just as much action and fun. Espionage also has 5 different endings depending on your performance, so it might be worth trying that one again as well. Thanks for taking the time to... More

We took 10 eleven year olds to the Espionage show in 11/13. It had been recommended by a friend but we didn't know much about it except what we saw on the website. What a great time! You are immersed in a live espionage drama complete with codes to break, lasers to dodge and a cabal to defeat. You go... More

The shows are always worth a second visit (Espionage even has five different endings), or if you find yourself up near Syracuse, New York, we have a brand new location opening there very soon....
