Deep Space

Ever teleport to an abandoned starship?

After no contact for years, there’s been a distress signal from the abandoned starship, Nebulous! You have just 30 minutes to teleport aboard the craft, figure out what happened and get back safely.

But be prepared to battle an asteroid storm, rewire the engines, refuel the power supply and stop an evil Artificial Intelligence in time to save the world!

ABOUT 5 WITS

5 Wits was created during 2004 in Boston, MA. The concept — to give customers a live-action, immersive experience within a realistic, hands-on setting. Rather than watching an action movie or playing a video game, customers get the chance to be the action hero in that movie or video game. Customers’ responses determine how each adventure will unfold, and their choices determine how the story ends. It’s a very unique experience, unlike any other around.

Our adventures include Tomb, Espionage, 20,000 Leagues, Drago’s Castle and Deep Space.

5 Wits currently operates in Foxboro, MA; Syracuse, NY and West Nyack, NY. New adventures and new locations are under development now!

Each adventure is in a self-contained, physical space that requires your hands-on interaction to progress. Every adventure has multiple rooms, with several unique puzzles to discover as you travel through them. Your adventure awaits!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ADVENTURES

How physical are the adventures? What should I wear?

Each adventure is in a self-contained, physical space that requires your hands-on interaction to progress.

Every show has multiple rooms, with several unique puzzles to discover as you travel through them. However, you’ll never be forced to do anything beyond your physical ability, whatever that may be. While our adventures require your physical interaction, at no time will you be diving out of the way of boulders, climbing cargo nets or swimming through tunnels!

Our only dress recommendations are closed toe shoes and comfortable clothing.

How long are the adventures? How often do they start? How many people in a group?

The lengths of our adventures vary, but are approximately half an hour (NY locations) to an hour long (MA location), and depend on your group’s performance.

New adventures begin every 15 minutes throughout the day. As one group moves deeper into their exploration, a new group can enter. In this way we can accommodate very large groups with rolling starts, and can take up to 12 people on each expedition.

Are your adventures scary? What ages are they appropriate for?

While each of our family friendly adventures is designed to be intense, they are intended to thrill and challenge, not to frighten you.

There are some moments of temporary darkness and some loud sound effects in each experience, so we suggest that parents of young children, generally below the age of 7, should use their discretion.

While a 5 Wits’ experience is appropriate for all ages, an expedition full of adults is very different than an expedition full of children. The challenges are difficult and exciting for adults. We work hard to make sure everyone has an exceptional experience and our staff is always happy to make recommendations on the best days and times that would suit your friends or family.

Children under 13 MUST be accompanied by an adult 18 years or older.

Do you offer food? Are there food options in the neighborhood?

We offer snacks and drinks, and we’re also within walking distance of many great restaurants!

Who builds these things?

All of our attractions are designed and built by our sister company, 5 Wits Productions.

5 Wits Productions builds museum exhibits, interactive theme park attractions, and theatrical effects that have been enjoyed all over the world. Want to learn more? Visit 5witsproductions.com to find out more!

TICKETS

How do I buy tickets?

Tickets are available online on our Tickets page. You can also purchase tickets in-store, or call us at (855) 955-WITS.

Is this general admission, or do we need reservations?

Upon arriving, guests are able to choose their preferred adventure and then await their start time.

Wait time varies depending on the day, but our staff will fit groups into the adventures as quickly as possible. Up to 12 guests will enter the adventure at a time, and guests may be paired with other families.

What is the best time to visit?

Anytime! 5 Wits adventures run seven days a week, with many times every day.

However, depending on the makeup of your group and what you are looking for, some times might work better than others. Weekends and school vacation periods tend to be very busy, with lots of families and kids looking for an adventure! If that’s not your style, we’d recommend coming in on a weekday, when the atmosphere tends to be a little quieter.

How do combo tickets work?

A combo ticket allows you to enjoy several of our adventures for one low price. Call us at (855) 955-WITS for pricing options.
