In his first design for 5 Wits, Mathew DuPlessie channeled the fedora-wearing, whip-cracking swagger of Indiana Jones. Called Tomb, this interactive entertainment experience threw its participants into ancient Egypt to solve riddles and clues from a supernatural pharaoh. Since then, DuPlessie, a graduate of MIT and Harvard Business School, has opened up two new adventures that combine the immersive special effects of a Hollywood movie with the interactive role-play of a video game. "It's hands-on entertainment," the former designer for Disney World and Universal Studios told the Patriot Ledger, "that forces people to get off their rear end."
Thus far, all of his adventures have worked to immerse the mind and the senses?the Shakespearean origins of the company's name. Taken from Much Ado About Nothing, "five wits" refers to the Bard's nod to memory, imagination, fantasy, common sense, and estimation. Though the scenarios are meant to thrill and challenge players, none are meant to frighten, nor are they designed to be beyond the reach of those with average physical ability and psychic powers.
Offering drop-in activities and group parties, The Kid’s Place unleashes children’s imaginations and gives them a place and the tools to express themselves through art. Owner Samara Lamm brings her experience as a child-psychology major and nursery school teacher into The Kid’s Place’s daily activities. She stimulates minds by challenging youth to mine for gemstones and by teaching them how to tie-dye T-shirts and white tuxedos. Visitors can also build mosaic pictures out of glass or hand-paint ceramic plates with holiday messages and handprints. Group parties also get the kids interacting socially with freeze dancing, games, and edible art options for those aged three and up.
At Kids’ Fun Stop, children can ride on toys, play house, or dress up for imaginative play. A children's fire engine truck is one of the center’s play structures, which kids aged 6 or younger can climb and pretend to ride. The engine has plentiful company in the spacious play area, which encompasses a climbing structure, large spiral slide, and a rock cave. Kids create masterpieces at the art table, and children aged 2 or younger can spend time in a separate baby area. Parents can oversee playtime while humming along to the kid-friendly music or surfing the web on free WiFi.
