There are no reservations at this location - it is first come, first serve. It is a ~30 minute adventure, and while it is not a typical 'escape room', it is the best crossover experience currently in the North East market for beginners.

The Venue   


Venue / Lobby Info:

This mall has a ferris wheel, bowling alley, movie theater, and gokarts within. It is truly a weekend destination. 5 Wits is located on the upper level. The lobby had props, t-shirts, and random items for sale. There is no available seating. Upon entry to the venue, you notice the three doors 'leading to each adventure' as well as a token box next to the door. Upon entry, you purchase the tokens for the adventures you wish to play, and stand by the door for the next adventure to begin.

Public Restrooms: Yes

Refreshments: Yes

Notes for People with Disabilities:

The mall itself is ADA compliant. This room has a bypass built into the adventure for those who can't/won't crawl. Please call ahead for any particular necessary accommodations. There is one place to sit in the mid-point of the game.

The Game   


Game Introduction: An interactive book tells the story, I cannot provide more information.

Operator Intro: Exciting - takes you into the story

Theme: Fantasy / Fiction

Narrative: other

Main room first glance: Wow!

This is one of those experiences where I cannot divulge information without giving critical components away.

Flow: Excellent flow - flawless and coherent

The rooms are designed where you solve a few puzzles to move onto the next room. It is concise, clear, and beautifully orchestrated.

Puzzles: Well thought of. Intriguing

While simple enough for a 7-8 year old to complete, the puzzles found within are a lot of fun! This room uses a lot of color puzzles.

Game Strengths:

Fun, fast, beautiful adventure for a family or group of friends to enjoy. Accessible to smaller children while still being entertaining to adults.

Game Weaknesses:

On a busy night, you can be waiting several hours to play, or play in a group much larger than preferred.

Final Thoughts:

If you have a group of inexperienced players that you wish to introduce to escape rooms, 5 Wits is the perfect place to begin that journey. We have attended this facility on multiple occasions, and the staff has always been respectful and pleasant. The rooms are repeatable, with Easter eggs to be found for more experienced players!! In this room, one Easter egg causes a funny sound effect! We found 2 Easter Eggs within this game so far, and will continue to look for more.
