Venue says Exclusive offer for Time Out readers: use promo code 'escapetime' for 20% off any game booked before Nov 30. Three great games to choose.

A magician has disappeared during a magic trick and his apartment’s about to be bulldozed. You’ve got one hour inside it to find his book of secrets and discover where the hell he vanished to (while, we imagine, hoping the Magic Circle don’t mind you ruining his trick).

That’s the premise of this magic-based escape game, which throws actual magicians’ tricks in alongside the usual selection of logic challenges and combinations to crack. It’s an enjoyably hands-on game, featuring multiple rooms packed with so many impressively designed bits of kit to play with that you’ll feel a bit like a grown-up kid in a toy shop.

The number of different tasks that team members can work on separately means that your team will soon be tearing around the room simultaneously piecing together clues in a whirl of literal escapism. One of the better recent openings within the world of escape games. You might even say that it’s a kind of magic.

Really good fun new London Escape Room. Lots and lots of puzzles to solve and an inventive story that differs from a lot I have played. Great value and great fun. It's a tough one and one that feels real, not too clinical and not too much use of objects and puzzles that don't fit the story. In fact, as far as immersion goes its one of the best I've played as it leads you logically along. (some games feel like you are just solving out of place puzzles) This one has reasoning and it adds to the game. We only just escaped, but we were stubborn in not asking for clues, although hints did come our way when we were stumped. Go play, go escape.

Like a mental workout? Watched the Crystal Maze back in the day? Then you'll really enjoy this. We played "Book of Secrets" and the hour just whizzed by. Plenty of puzzles to keep you thoroughly engaged and (thankfully, given we were all novices) there's also some timely hints if you need them, although they don't spoonfeed you the answer so when you do work something out after receiving a hint, there's still a definite sense of achievement and satisfaction. We were a group of three and probably could have done with another pair of hands/brain but the company also offers a game specifically designed for two so you don't have to gather a big group for this. Two of our group were in their 70s and also thoroughly enjoyed themselves so it's really suitable for all. Oh, and despite having lived in London for years, I'd never been to Mile End so we all enjoyed a nice walk in the sun through the nearby park afterwards and found a new area to explore. Well worth it!

We did the two person escape game and it was a massive amount of fun. The headphones you wear to get immersed into the sounds of the underground are a great addition to the atmosphere! The location for this game is in a different place to the 2-6 person ones, when you arrive it feels and looks a tad temporary but as soon as you’re in the room you’re completely immersed! Really great fun, will definitely visit again.

Great fun, thoroughly recommend it. Challenging without being frustrating and time whizzed by. All five of us really enjoyed it and can't wait for the new ones they say they are working on.

As one review said 'A master class in Escape Rooms' we had to check this one out - and oh yes it's up there with the very best games in London - mainly because it tells a great story, it's fun, it make sense and at the same time the puzzles test every aspect of challenge, team work and lateral thinking. Attention to detail, amazing customer service and a really fun time to be had here. The reviews were right - it's one of the best games in London.

Absolutely stunning design, detail, challenge and fun. You really must go and do this ! Hosting excellent and interactive which just adds to a superb experience. Support the success of these guys they so deserve it.

Could well be the best game in town. So different, a coherent story that leads you through some inventive and fun challenges and puzzles. Not easy and lots and lots to do. We played in a team of 5 - in Ultimate Mode (so a few useful hints came our way). The magic is wonderful and very surprising - it's not overly electronic without reason - in fact everything has a reason that is part of the story. Probably the most memorable game I've played as we were still talking about it a few days later there really is so much going on. Play it while you can I say

Wow! This was excellent.

A huge congratulations to Clue Adventures. Finding The Book of Secrets was great fun!

This is a fantastic escape room! It's full of really great, challenging puzzles with a fabulous magical theme. We played in a team of four and just manged to get out in time with only about two minutes to spare!
Highly recommended.

A very challenging and enjoyable escape game. The storyline was engaging and was a consistent thread throughout the game which helps you to feel immersed. We were a fairly experienced team of three and could have done with another brain to help with the range of puzzles. The puzzles were all really cleverly done, very inventive and many original ideas - the touches of magic were very special! We will return to play any future games they have.

A very witty, thought provoking and entertaining experience! Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish and made extra special by our great host, Paul. We loved being a part of the story line and trying to solve the variety of puzzles. Magical!

The best game I've played in London. Hands-On, fun, packed solid with clue, not overly techy and so different. Staff are wonderful and game is organised and logical - it's not easy but they are not meant to be - Highly Recommended. 

This was a brilliant escape room adventure. There were 5 in our group, including our son, who slightly younger than the recommended 14 year+, actually proved to be better at solving the puzzles than the adults were! 

We all enjoyed the experience and found the puzzles challenging and fun. The storyline was very well thought out too. 

Our host was superb, he explained everything very well. 

Can't wait to do another Clue Adventure escape room in the future. Definitely recommend.

5 of us visited yesterday and we all had a fantastic time - can't recommend this highly enough.

There were a large variety of different challenges you had to solve, which were suitable for different ages and abilities.

Paul, the host, was excellent; really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. 

The room has been devised by 3 people, including a consultant on "The Crystal Maze"; all VERY well thought out! (Won't go into any details though as don't want to spoil it for anyone)

Good location too - easy to get to on the tube.

Book this up!!! You definitely won't regret it.


Played this new Escape Game with a team from work. It great fun, but you do leave mentally drained. The puzzles come thick and fast and you really need to remember what you've seen as you go along. A good set up with videos and music introducing the game. Clue appear on a book on a screen in the room. We needed a few. The puzzle range from logic to more mental (Crystal Maze style) and lead you to more locks, doors and more puzzles. The time flew, it was really good fun and certainly forced us to work together (far better than we actually do at work). I'd say it would suit friends, older families, work colleagues and people looking for unusual things to do around town. The game we played was Book of Secrets based in Mile End.
