About This Deal

A whirlwind adventure is the only way to determine which friends and family members to call if you ever drop your keys into a haunted scorpion nest. Categorize by courage with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one ticket to 20,000 Leagues at 5 Wits in Foxborough (up to an $18 value).

Intrepid gangs of explorers can partake in ultra-interactive adventures at 5 Wits to test sleuthing and problem-solving skills with activities appropriate for both adults and children in a high-tech space. Admission to 20,000 Leagues invites adventurers aboard Captain Nemo's submarine, the Nautilus, to unravel the mysteries of his fateful voyage, such as what caused his disappearance and the total number of baseball players needed to make up that many leagues. An in-character tour guide leads each group through a quest that lasts nearly an hour, though he or she will stay out of the way unless called upon to distract the giant octopus with a juggling contest. The difficulty of the tour is tuned to the age of the participants, ensuring that mind-muscles emerge from the gauntlet thoroughly flexed. Check the schedule for ticket availability; call (508) 698-1600 to make a reservation.

About 5 Wits

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.
