Secret Studio is an exciting retro-themed mystery escape game! ‘I don’t know what on earth that means’, we hear you say. Well here’s what happens…

You and your friends/family are locked inside the headquarters of ‘Secret Studio Films’, a (fictional) down-at-heel schlock movie production office that hasn’t seen a lick of paint since 1979.

You have an hour to solve the puzzles inside the room and unlock the mystery to escape! You’ll start by searching, seeing what you can find and how things fit together to make sense.

The retro technology will delight you along the way – a journey back in time for the younger players (‘how did people used to manage in the old days?!’) and a trip down memory lane for Mum and Dad (marvel at your teen’s attempts at the dial phone!) You work together as a team to try and beat the clock.

There are also spooky scary bits and a few surprises in store… we don’t want to say much about these because that would ruin the surprise thing but we can accommodate the jumpy ones among you – see ‘Who can do it?’

You’ll have fun! We can (practically) guarantee it! And that’s all we can really tell you for now. That’s why it’s called SECRET Studio…

Secret Studio costs £30 per person, but remember to check out our OFFERS page.

You can pay by Credit or Debit card.  

You need at least 3 people to play the game.

Most people can experience Secret Studio.

Children aged fourteen or over are welcome. We do ask that each team has at least one person over sixteen.

All team members need to be able to understand and read English.

There is the odd surprise! Let us know when you arrive if you really don’t like shocks, and we’ll tailor the experience.

Also tell us if you’re claustrophobic; we should be able to make it work for you.

There is no excessively physical activity.

To solve the mysteries at least one team member needs reasonably good eyesight.

Although we play music and effects, audio is not essential to the experience.

We do have wheelchair access, but are only able to accommodate 1-2 wheelchair users at a time. We’re very embarrassed about this.

Any group of between 3 and 25 people can play at the same time.

We have 4 rooms. Each room is designed for up to 6 players (one room can fit 7 at a squeeze). So larger groups split into teams and race!

Don’t worry, nobody else will be in your room(s), so you won’t be playing with strangers.

If there’s more than 25 of you, you can play consecutively. We’ll keep track of your times so it’s still a fair race! AND we can arrange for the first group to sit with the GamesMaster and watch on spycam while the second group plays. This is a great laugh. But you will need to think of something for your second group to be doing while the first group plays – they can’t watch because it will spoil the surprise!

To book for more than 25 players, let us know on the contact form.

There are three flavours of Secret Studio: ‘Difficult’, ‘Impossibly Difficult’ and (coming soon) ‘The Sequel – for returning players’.

There’s no easy option. Less than 50% of people escape in time on their first attempt.

If you’re an experienced escape-gamer you might like to select ‘Impossibly Difficult’. Otherwise we strongly recommend you go for the easiest version. Which is, of course, Difficult!

Secret Studio’s exact location is a highly guarded secret. But here’s a clue or two…

We’re on Wentworth Street, London, E1 7SA, a stone’s throw from Brick Lane.

The studio is a few minutes walk from Aldgate East Underground station and on the 15, 25, 67, 115, 135, 205 and 254 bus routes.

Don’t worry, once you’ve booked we’ll give you a fighting chance of finding us.

The Secret Studio experience will last around 90 minutes, including a short briefing beforehand, and a chat about how it went afterwards.

You’ll have 60 minutes to solve the Studio’s mysteries and escape. It’s not easy. Less than 50 percent of people escape in the time. If you’re close and we’re feeling generous, we might give you a few extra minutes. Otherwise, you’ll just have to come back (we’re sure you’ll want to). We’ll give you a bit of a discount second time round, but be warned: we mix things up a bit when you return.

You can add extra people, but there’s a maximum of six per room (seven with a bit of a squeeze). If you’re not sure how many rooms you’ve booked, just check your booking confirmation.

To add people, just reply to your booking confirmation telling us how many you would like to add.

This is a live experience, so cancellation isn’t possible. But we want to be as flexible as we can. If you want to change your booking, let us know by replying to your booking confirmation. We’ll try our best to find another customer to take your game. The more notice we have, the greater the chances! We need to charge £10 for each change, to cover our admin costs. Sorry about that.

No. Only your group will be in the room(s). So you will just be playing with yourselves, so to speak.
Secret Studio is haunted, so there are a few surprises. If you really don’t like shocks, ask your GamesMaster for a Joker Card when you arrive. This will allow you to avoid the scarey bits. But the Joker Card contains spoilers, so only ask for it if you really are apprehensive.
We do have wheelchair access, but are only able to accommodate 1-2 wheelchair users at a time. We’re very embarrassed about this.

There is no excessively physical activity.

To solve the mysteries at least one team member needs reasonably good eyesight.

Although we play music and effects, audio is not essential to the experience.

There is the odd surprise! Let us know when you arrive if you really don’t like shocks, and we’ll tailor the experience.

Tell us if you’re claustrophobic; we should be able to make it work for you.

We certainly do.

Just send us an email telling us how many players, the name of the recipient and the address you’d like us to send it to (or if it’s urgent, we can email you a PDF).

It also helps if you can tell us what the gift is for, so we can personalise the card a bit.

We’ll then send you an invoice by email. You can pay this by credit card or PayPal account. Then we’ll send a shiny gift-voucher card.

The cost is simply our normal price of £30 per person.

Oh and by the way, the voucher will have no expiry date; we know how annoying it is to finally get round to using that gift, only to discover it ran out last week!
