Montgomery County dignitaries welcomed a unique entertainment destination to Plymouth Meeting Mall at a recent ribbon-cutting and VIP reception.
5 Wits was recently voted one of the top 5 escape rooms in the country by USA Today 10Best. The new, 4,000-square-foot venue at Plymouth Meeting, located across from Legoland Discovery Center, is an immersive, hands-on experience that allows players to become action heroes in one of three adventures. Players work together as a team to solve a series of fun, physical challenges and puzzles, interacting with realistic, computer-controlled special effects like a collapsing ceiling in an Egyptian tomb, or a dragon lurking inside a medieval castle. Players’ responses determine how the adventure unfolds, resulting in a different experience each time, according to a 5 Wits press release.
5 Wits Founder, CEO and President Matthew DuPlessie was joined by several local VIPs at the grand opening reception, including Vincent Vizzo, Vice-President of Leasing for Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT); Martin Kalos, President of the Eastern Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce; Lisa Karl, Vice President of Sales and Strategic Partnerships for the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board; Jessica Willingham, Director of Arts and Culture for Valley Forge Tourism; and Kate Harper, Pennsylvania State Representative.
More than 200 guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, beverages and tours of each 5 Wits Adventure:
- Drago’s Castle: In this medieval-themed adventure, players team up with a tough and smart princess to catch a dragon. They’ll need to escape the dungeon, solve ancient riddles, and watch out for the dragon while exploring the castle.
- Tomb: Players enter a 3,000-year-old tomb inhabited by an angry Pharaoh, where they are challenged to solve ancient puzzles in hieroglyphics and match the Pharaoh at his own game. Those who fail may be trapped in the burial chamber for all eternity!
- Espionage: The clock is ticking and world security is on the line as players infiltrate enemy headquarters to avert a global catastrophe. They’ll dodge lasers, crawl through vents and disarm a missile in this action-packed spy thriller!
