Where are we going today?

Are you ready to take on 5 Wits? We hope so - you might need to be brave!

5 Wits in Foxboro is an adventure with a twist. It's a cutting edge, live-action entertainment venue for older kids and adults, which gives you the chance to immerse yourself in realistic, hands-on adventures, which will challenge everyone to prove really what they have to face the battle!

There are two adventure that you can experience. Tough decision - would you rather than on the giant squid in 20,000 Leagues, or save the world in Espionage? See - we told you that you would need to be brave!

Espionage sees you trained as spies, where you then have to infiltrate and take down an evil corporation that are determined to stop you in your tracks at every turn.

20,000 Leagues will see you caught up in the mystery of Captain Nemo's lost ship, when your tour group will accidentally discover the legendary Nautilus.

With each expedition you will be accompanied by a trained cast member, but no mistake about it - YOU are the start of the show!

Each of the adventures at 5 Wit are self contained, and each requires a physical, and hands-on interaction. Each of them have multiple rooms and several unique puzzles that you will have to discover, and will certainly challenge you! You might have to climb cargo nets, swim through tunnels, or dive out of the way of boulders!

Each adventure is also just under an hour, but don't worry - they are designed to challenge you, not scare you, so they are family friendly. Parents with kids under 7 years should use discretion. 

So, are you ready to head to Foxboro and take on your mission at 5 Wits? Good luck team - we know you can do it!

    5 Wits is a great idea/concept and can be awesome but only if you are doing the adventure with a good group of people.

    20,000 Leagues was the first adventure we went on and it was the three of us, two children, and about ten adults. This group was awesome! The adults all let the kids do the code cracking and the kids were well behaved and had a good time. The adults in the group assisted the children in showing them the little secrets they may have been missing.

    Espionage was the second adventure and it was the three of us, four kids, and eight...Read More

    upon arrival the lady at the desk asked me if we were ready to start a game in less than a minute. I accepted, because duh, we were there to play. What she didnt tell me was that my group of 4 was to join a group of 5 including a young child. this was not fun for us. I wish the desk clerk had been more clear.
    the puzzles were few and far between. the only interesting puzzle I found was at the end of the espionage show. It is their version of Master Mind, the code breaking game I played as a child. There was a safe to crack but the family we were...Read More

    Awesome, awesome, awesome. The effects are downright fabulous. My school group is still trying to figure one effect out. It's mind-boggling, the guides are funny, and breath-stopping turns make you yearn for more.

Espionage was the second adventure and it was the three of us, four kids, and eight adults. More than half of the adults in this group were literally running to the codes to get there before the kids. Two of the boys who were around ten were so poorly behaved and were mocking the adventure guide, pushing the young kids and adults out of the way, and the list goes on and on all while their mom and dad let it all happen.

Basically it is great if you have a great group and horrible if you have parents who allow their children to do as they please or adults who act like children.

the puzzles were few and far between. the only interesting puzzle I found was at the end of the espionage show. It is their version of Master Mind, the code breaking game I played as a child. There was a safe to crack but the family we were with did that puzzle while we watched.
there were just 5 puzzles in all. I expected more.
It was boring, I don't recommend going with more than 4 people. I feel like they should know that and that they ripped us off by sticking us in a group of 9 so they wouldn't have to run 2 groups through separately!
