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.

Your Groupon is good at two locations: Golf Masters in Walpole and Golf Masters Airport Golf in North Attleboro. You do not need to use the entire amount of your Groupon in one visit. The $125 will be converted into Golf Masters value cards for use over time towards the following slate of possibilities:

City Golf's managing owner and head golf professional, Gary Parker, brings a Class A PGA certification and more than two decades of teaching experience to City Golf, earning him Boston magazine's Best Golf Pro in 2007. Gary and his team of PGA-certified aces preside over year-round golfing activities inside City Golf Walpole and City Golf Boston's studios and their modern golf-training facilities, including a brand new downtown Boston location. Pros tailor instruction to individuals during lessons to help straighten out swings with the assistance of Dartfish video swing analysis, which reveals every ill-timed motion, errant clubface position, and argyle-clad poltergeist affecting each shot. A virtual-reality simulator recreates the environments of more than 30 legendary courses, and a 280-square-foot putting green challengers players' ability to read breaking greens.

A fourth location in Brighton is set to open in September of 2013. The 5,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility will include four virtual golf simulators, an indoor driving range, a 2,000 square foot putting green, and teaching areas hosting PGA video lessons.

Fresh air fills kids’ lungs as they race through the myriad outdoor activities at Funway Foxboro, powering them through afternoon marathons of inflatable castles and miniature greens. A waterfall cascades over the mini-golf course, which overlooks a pool churning in the wake of bumper boats bouncing off each other as they collide. Conversely, go-karters try to avoid impact with their fellow drivers as they speed along, and pitching machines vainly attempt to sneak baseballs past sluggers at the batting cages. At both the rock-climbing wall and inflatable moon bounce, visitors can conquer gravity without traveling back in time to hand Isaac Newton a hard hat. Everything from Dippin’ Dots to pizza refuels guests at the concession hut, where Funway Foxboro also hosts birthday parties featuring surprise appearances from its mascot, Funway Fox.
