5 Wits Set to Open October 20th at Plymouth Meeting Mall

5 Wits Plymouth Meeting, a live-action entertainment destination, is scheduled to open at Plymouth Meeting Mall on Friday, October 20th. 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.

Participants 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.

“Players at 5 Wits enjoy being part of an adventure, solving puzzles and engaging with challenges,” said Matt DuPlessie, founder and president of The 5 Wits Companies. He founded 5 Wits in 2003 after managing several museum and theme park design projects, including Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Today, there are 5 Wits venues in Foxboro, Mass., and throughout New York State.

“5 Wits puts players physically in the center of action. It’s immersive, it’s realistic, and it’s unlike any other form of entertainment,” DuPlessie said. John Pandiscio, Director of Marketing and Advertising for 5 Wits, agreed. “This is a totally unique addition to the Greater Philadelphia entertainment scene,” he said. “5 Wits is similar to an escape room, but with greater realism, higher quality and more compelling storytelling. The changing locations and challenges make visitors feel like they’re
heroes in their own action film or video game. This is truly the future of entertainment.”

Three 5 Wits adventures are scheduled for the Plymouth Meeting location:

• Drago’s Castle: In this medieval-themed adventure, you’ll team up with a tough and
smart princess to catch a dragon. Escape the dungeon, solve ancient riddles, and watch out for the dragon while exploring the castle!
• Tomb: Enter a 3,000-year-old tomb to take on an angry Pharaoh. Solve ancient puzzles in hieroglyphics and match the Pharaoh at his own game. If you fail, you’ll be trapped in his burial chamber for all eternity!
• Espionage: The clock is ticking and world security is on the line as you infiltrate enemy headquarters to avert a global catastrophe. Dodge lasers, crawl through vents and disarm a missile in this action-packed spy thriller!

5 Wits Plymouth Meeting will celebrate its grand opening Saturday, November 4th with special promotions and giveaways. The venue is available for corporate team-building exercises, field trips, birthday parties and other private events. Adventures are suitable for anyone age seven and older.
