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

Incredible production quality that really immerses you in the experience and let's you live out a movie-like adventure. We did all three and had so much fun! We were a group of two and it was fine, though a group of 4 is probably ideal...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

Had a great time solving all 3 adventures. We had a party of 5 with 3 teenagers ages 16-17, and everyone had a blast. It's an excellent exercise in teamwork and the movie-set like props added to the overall excitement. The staff deserve 5 Stars...More
