Played this game as one of the taster sessions.It was one of the most original, exciting and memorable escape games I've ever played. Writing this review in 2022, but I can still remember the story, and how the game panned out and have highly recommended it to many, many others. Not for the feint-hearted (including myself), but honestly, having set zero expectations helped, as there was huge sense of euphoria when we managed to escape, like no other time I have since experienced in escape games. I've since heard that the game has changed since it moved from its original location in Holborn so would love to try it out again

Fantastic room for start to finish. From arriving at the secret door, to talking to the gamesmaster, to the room itself and the debrief. A lot of love and attention has gone to making this challenging room. Loved the set design too. One of my all time favourites.

Reviews by escape room review sites

This room was a cut above the rest from the moment we arrived. Set up and run by enthusiasts from an actual film studio, the props and theming were outstanding and the room has a couple of moments in particular that really stand out.
One puzzle was fiddly and frustrating - although we'd missed a clue that would have made it much more approachable. Nonetheless, this is without doubt in the top rank of London's escape rooms.
Outside the room We visited Secret Studio during their preview period, where they offered a 50% discount in exchange for spending 10 minutes talking about the room afterwards. As the exitgames blog said at the time – they give you a discount for that?! I'd have happily spent half an hour talking to them… We arrived at

It’s true what they say, you never forget your first, and fortunately for us that was ‘Escape in time’. A really solid game with some very memorable moments.
We head to a TV studio in East London to find out the production values of this escape room.
The last Escape Room we did on our One-Day-London Escape Room Tour was a mystery-themed game located in an old film editing studio. To keep the thrill level high, we made our appointment at “Secret Studio” in London shortly before midnight. Let’s start our Review.

An exciting room that stepped up the tension well through the game, with a few standout elements making the room easy to recommend, though let down a little in places, mostly by poor organisational choices and the occasional unthemed puzzle.
