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

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts! We're glad you had a fantastic time and we'd love to see you again in the future. 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....

Our family of 4 went on my 11 year old daughter's birthday, at 7pm on a Thursday eve. When deciding between the Nemo and the Espionage adventure I specifically said we wanted the "least crowded one", but got no feed back on which one was more or less booked up. We joined a birthday party group of eight young adults.... More

My boys, ages 7 and 8 LOVED this! It is like nothing we have ever done before! My 8 year old loved figuring out the puzzles and codes to crack. The 7 year old was a little freaked out by some of the pitch black parts, and he was really nervous that we would be "caught". Lol! So I really... More

Hi Paula, We're glad to hear you guys had a good time! (We here at 5 Wits think crawling through lasers is pretty neat as well.) Thanks for coming by to check us out, and please do keep us mind if your boys are in the market for an awesome birthday party in the coming year. The shows are always... More

I'd rate this as somewhere between average and very good. My 11 year old went to an Espionage B-Day party a few months back and enjoyed it. For something a little different on vacation last week, I took her to 20,000 Leagues. She had fun on this adventure as well. We went mid-afternoon on a weekday. It was pleasantly uncrowded... More

I took my three munchkins (11, 9, 4) to Espionage as a different rainy day activity. Basically, you are spies being guided on secret mission. You have to dodge laser beams, solve puzzles, safecrack, climb through an air shaft, etc. The oldest loved everything about it, the middle one really liked the puzzle solving/role playing but got a bit overwhelmed...

Both Espionage and 20,000 leagues are filled with puzzles that are fun for the whole family. While the event is a little pricey we enjoyed Espionage enough to immediately sign up for 20,000. The location is also a little off the typical summer beaten path. Our boys loved it though and used their brains by accident. We like summer activities... More

My husband and I went, and we knew ahead of time that it was geared towards children. But, we wanted to check it out anyways. What makes this average is the price. $18 per person is a lot to ask for this, even if you bring kids with you. It is well thought out, but the price is unrealistic, if... More

Espionage Just finished my forth time through and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. If you always wanted to know what it's like to be a spy and do various things such as maneuver around lasers, crack a safe, decode a password, and defuse a bomb then this is for you. It's like living an episode of... More

Our group of 10 took a private 20,000 Leagues adventure. we were mostly adults with 2 older teens. It was quite entertaining and our guide Asia was really good and she got all of us participating. I think younger kids would really enjoy both of these adventures. The adventures are about a hour long. with adventures starting every 15mins. I... More
