    Hi im planning on going to one for my 32nd birthday. I like creepy things, any in particular that you recommend. Party of approx 20

      Secret Studio is definitely the one – they can accommodate parties of up to 26 I think, you can all play the same game (which is great for chatting afterwards without having to keep things secret), it’s nicely creepy (without being gory or scary) and it’s one of the best games in London. No doubts in my mind that it’s the one you should choose.

    I loved Secret Studio – my favourite of the ones I’ve played.
    I’m looking for another game in London in similar vein – creepy, atmospheric, with some good surprises.
    Any recommendations?
    Thanks very much! Great site!

      AI Escape in South London is a very different type of creepy and atmospheric but I think would still meet your definition. It’s a good game but worth mentioning that it deals with mental health topics.

      Other options: Psychopath’s Den at AIM Escape is a potentially decent option. We played early on and they were still having some teething issues. I doubt you’ll think it’s as good as Secret Studio but it has some nice moments.

      Poppa Plock is creepy and funny at the same time. Personally I found the game frustrating but I played with a full team because, at the time, it was a public booking system. You can now book as a 2 or 3 I think which would change the experience immensely.

      I’ve not played but Komnata and London Escaped both have games that might fit the bill and they definitely have a focus on set design. Not sure about the puzzles though – I’ve heard mixed comments.
