Drago's Castle At 5 Wits

Taking place in painstakingly detailed, theme park-style environments, 5 Wits adventures feature synchronized sound and lighting, elaborate special effects, and characters that respond to your presence and performance. Drago’s Castle is a high fantasy adventure taking place in an ancient castle, with magic, dungeons, and hidden passageways. A mighty and terrifying dragon has broken out of the storybook world and is roaming free in the castle. You’ll need to team up with a princess to navigate the castle’s corridors, break free of the dungeon, and find the book with the power to seal the beast back in its pages. The princess will be a powerful ally on your quest, but take care – if she uses too much of her magic helping you, that won’t spell a storybook ending when it comes time to face the dragon!
