Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you enjoy escape rooms, try this out. My boyfriend and I really enjoy escape rooms but feared that 5 Wits would be boring in comparision and more centered for kids but they make the immersive expereince actually immersive. For two adults who frequent escape rooms and immersize puzzle games it was on the easier side, but didn't change the fact that they are highly themed and well executed. Can't wait to go back and try the other two rooms.

This place is a waste of time and money. We did the espionage adventure. Start out entering the door into...... the hallway that leads to the bathroom. Then wait in the hallway to enter a room with a couple of simple pattern games, then another room to break a code, unfortunately, of the four screens one did not light up at all and had to use it completely dark then another screen panel was installed upside down. Overall, boring and waste of time. Save your money and do something more fun.

Our family group ranging from kids ages 9-15 and middle aged adults alike had a blast at 5 Wits. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Immersive experience with great sets, animatronics and story. Really enjoyed the puzzles, which created opportunities for both individual problem-solving and team based collaboration. If you are looking for a private, safe, and engaging group activity that is fun for the whole family, 5 Wits is the place to be!

Fantastic 13th Birthday Party! Scott was absolutely amazing answering all of my questions a few days prior and advising which adventures the girls would like the best. The girls loved solving the puzzles and working their way through the challenges.

My wife and I had a great time doing all three adventures at the Arlington location (Tomb, Espionage, and Drago’s Castle). As escape room enthusiasts, we weren’t sure what to expect. But, 5 Wits combines all the fun of working out puzzles with the adrenaline of running around a playground!! The sets and mechanics were absolutely amazing and worth playing just to see. We want to give a particular shout out to Scott. He was friendly and very supportive, and it was great talking with him between games. We absolutely recommend trying out all the games here.

We held our daughters 13th Birtday party here. She and her friends had a GREAT time. The 2 Adventures were great fun for the girls and the time for cake and gifts in between was just enought. I love that 5 Wits even had all the little extras on hand (candles, lighter, cake cutter etc) that were needed in the event we had forgotten. Our party host did a great job and made sure we were well taken care of. I was unsure how a group of 12-13 yr old girls would like this but they LOVED it. One of our best party ideas yet.

If you haven't been to 5 Wits, you should try it. We (my husband, daughter who is 10 and I) have a lot of fun solving puzzles and trying to achieve the challenge.
