Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Boston: 5 Wits

Visit Boston: 5 Wits

5 Wits is an interactive adventure that's part escape-room, part role-play, part-theater. 

We went to the Patriot Place location to take part in Espionage (another family was assigned to this mission as well).  In this mission, we were led by an agent as we traversed through lasers and air ducts to look for secret codes and solve puzzles to find out who was the mole in the agency.

Unlike an escape room, we did not have a time limit to solve various puzzles, and a staff member was with us the entire time to guide us through the mission, giving us clues when we got "stuck."
The kids seemed to enjoy figuring out the various puzzles and looking for hidden objects.
I personally prefer the more escape room-type experience, where we truly have to figure things out ourselves without prompts from an employee.

Also, because we were with another family, kids from that other family tended to not "share" the experiences with my kids (eg they always tried to be the first to take on a task without letting my kids have a turn).

Overall, I thought the experience was okay, but I hope to take the kids on a real escape room adventure one day.
