This is not your traditional escape room. You will have 5-minute intervals in each of four rooms to solve a puzzle, and then you rotate, so you get to each room 3 times. Once you solve the puzzles in each room, you have to solve a crossword, and all of them help you unlock a big box you're carrying around. This escape room is great! So fun and puzzles are clever. Great decor, feels real! It's an escape experience you wouldn't want to miss!

This was my first escape room. Really fun but could have been better. Scenery felt like a house more than a kingdom. Technology used well, puzzles for the most part were good. Average escape room. Worth a visit but if you're over an hour away not worth it.
Panacea is an amazing escape room! It has no locks, cabinets open when you do something with objects. You have to master the Seven Principles Of Alchemy to win, so that means seven different major puzzles. Despite only having seven main puzzles, it provided a challenge. Panacea is my favorite room in the Boston area, although if you're around Boston I highly recommend going to 5 Wits in Foxboro. Highly recommend!
A world class room that will blow your mind. Book a flight now.

Like I say as always, 5 Wits is not an escape room. It's an amazing adventure with an actual story. Don't let the fact that it's not an escape room drive you away. It's amazing! The theming is so immersive, you feel like you're actually a spy! In Espionage, the evil CABAL corporation is launching a missile, and you will need to sneak into their base and defuse it before it launches! This adventure is one of my favorites! The theming made me feel like an actual spy and had a sense of urgency. Nothing felt like a puzzle, even though there were many. This is an experience unlike any other. Worth over 5 hours of driving. Highly recommend!
Never mind, it's closed forever 😭
I will start in the same way I always do with 5 Wits. 5 Wits is not an escape room. It's an adventure, focused more on the storyline and adventuring. However, don't let this disappoint you. 5 Wits is amazing! There are no locks, the scenery is so great you can't convince yourself it's fake, and the puzzles are fantastic! Tomb is where you go into an ancient Egyptian tomb, but the Pharaoh is not happy with your arrival! Can you outwit his puzzles before you meet your fate? I know, it's another Egyptian theme, but it is fantastic! There's all sorts of cool technology and lights, and it feels like you're in the moment! There are multiple rooms, and the computer adjusts the level of difficulty depending on how well you are doing. Recommend strongly!
As always, what I first will say is that 5 Wits is not really an escape room, more of an adventure. However, don't let this disappoint you. This is amazing! The theming is fantastic and unlike some other escape rooms, it has a storyline! 5 Wits is worth a giant trip over 5 hours. Drago's Castle is a medieval theme where you have to call back a dragon to a castle before it terrorizes the kingdom. There are no locks, and it's so fun! Great for kids, and a computer adjusts the challenge level depending on how you're doing. Since it's more of an adventure, it's on the easier side, but you will still have loads of fun! Infinity percent if possible!
So first off, I will say that 5 Wits isn't really an escape room. It's more of an experience. That being said, this is amazing! There are three rooms (four, if you count a small teleporter) and it is extremely immersive. It's more of a story/puzzle adventure than an escape room, and it's super fun. Incredible. Blew my mind. Looks like something out of a movie. Highly recommend.
