Post here any real life secret passageways you know about. There is a pretty cool one in my grandfather's house. Maybe I'll make a short youtube video of it.

But then they wouldn't be a secret anymore.

Do it!

If I ever have my own house built, it will be rife with secret passages :D

Just make sure there is an audible dong when you enter one.

And don't forget to make some clues like a misaligned paint or wallpaper or a light reflecting off of it in a certain way.

In my family home. There was this crawl space that connected two attics allowing you to traverse over the staircase and make a sneaky escape from someone you might be playing chase with.

My high school has catacombs, although I've never seen them. I'll have to try though.

My dong isn't audible. Is that a problem?

That wasn't very secret. You can see the hinges on the bookcase.

I remember a friend's house that had a hollow section of wall behind a picture and a hidden room behind a swivelling bookcase.

My old house has an underground crawl space that takes you from the basement to the backyard.

If it continues for more than four hours, you should see a doctor.

I have an about 0,5m x 1m rectangular tunnel going under the terrace and directly connecting garden with the cellar. I also have almost invisible back enterance to the greenhouse. In my primary school, there was an always closed locker-room functioning as a storage and with a mysterious dark tunnel leading to nowhere.

That's pretty awesome.

Also, I'm reminded of The Amazing Johnathan who I've seen some parts of his house on TV and he's got all kinds of secret passages and rooms in there :)

There are secret areas hidden throughout the city. They're military strategic points, such as nuclear bombardment shelters.

That's incredible.

I wonder how long those tunnels will exist before making them permanently inaccessible becomes a more financially viable option than keeping them maintained? :(

I'm designing a BSP/level/map which is based on the interior of my actual house for Heretic2, and although the real house doesn't have any secrets I'm definitely going to take creative liberties and throw some into the level. :p

The hospital for the insane that I was in had underground tunnels. We used to traffic candy and snacks by making use of these tunnels.

What often happens with tunnels like that is it becomes most financially viable to use them for something like pipes or cables. I remember reading an article a while ago about a company in NYC that was trying to repurpose old pneumatic-mail tubes into fibre conduits. I don't know how far that got.

Awesome! Could it possibly be the same hospital where The Prodigy filmed their official music video for the song "Take Me To The Hospital" ?
I love that song and that video!

The enormous abandoned Beijing bomb shelter is pretty wicked, described in further detail with photos here at #1.
