Giveaway Goodness: 5 Wits

Looking for an indoor adventure? Read on to learn more about 5 Wits via Lindsey + enter to win a ticket giveaway!

My children, husband, and I recently headed to Patriot Place in Foxboro to experience 5 Wits, a "cutting-edge, live-action entertainment venue that immerses participants in realistic, hands-on adventures." There are two adventure experiences at 5 Wits, one called Espionage and one called 20,000 Leagues.

Each adventures takes about an hour and immerses you in a high-stakes, drama-filled experience of trying to solve a mystery. In Espionage, you're cracking codes, dodging lasers, and trying to find a corporate mole. In 20,000 Leagues you're solving geography puzzles, building gears that work together to drive a motor, and tweaking a chemistry experiment in order to try to return to the surface of the ocean. In both cases, the 5 Wits team is energetic and well-trained and the technology that underlies each adventure is well thought out and compelling.

During the brief break between the two adventures, we figured out that 5 Wits refers to using all five senses to solve the mysteries. I asked my children what they liked best about 5 Wits, and this is what they had to say:

Whit (9): "I thought it was really exciting!  You had to actually put your mind to things and it was so much more interesting and interactive than a regular museum."

Grace (12): "I thought that it was a one-of-a-kind experience and a lot of fun! The people there were super nice."
