The Vault of Secrets is a new feature added in Geometry Dash World and that was later added in Update 2.1. It contains 5 new icons, 1 new level, 1 secret coin, 2 new colours and a secret room. It can be found at the top right corner of the creator menu.
The Vault of Secrets has a dark purple background and a field of text above the Keymaster. It has a purple face with small horns, a triangle with small circles on each face on its forehead, blue eyes, small jagged teeth and a padlock. Pressing it will cycle through different phrases. Wrong answers have orange text while hints are provided with green text to help the player.
Upon entering "The Challenge", you will be given a short level to play. This level introduces a handful of 2.1 mechanics not seen anywhere else, such as the Spider and both dash orbs. Upon completing, you will be rewarded with 3 Stars, some Mana Orbs, and access to The Basement. In The Basement, there is a chest with an icon. However, after waiting a few seconds, you will see glowing eyes (as seen in the end of the trailer) behind jail bars asking for you to release him using three keys. Only one of them is available in Geometry Dash World and is obtained by opening 50 of the chests in the Treasure Room. The second and third keys are only available in the full version; the orange key is obtained from a chest in the Chamber of Time, and the blue key is a reward from the Chaos Gauntlet.
Breaking all three of the locks will reveal more of the creature in the prison, having a toothy grin and a small, stubby but humanoid body that strongly resembles Gengar. It will announce its objective to destroy Geometry Dash, thanks to the player by their username for their efforts, and then leaves, revealing a chest behind. Noticing the commotion, the Keymaster comes down only to realise that the jail is open, causing him to break down and scream in agony. The chest can then be opened, revealing an icon, death effect, and a purple key. This purple key is used to access the demon gauntlet.

How to Unlock
To gain access to The Basement, the player must have unlocked the Vault of Secrets and finish The Challenge. Upon beating the level, the Keymaster will claim he has an award for the player and prompts them to access The Basement.
The basement has a dark purple background with a locked cage, an animated torch on the left, 3 locks with blue, green, and orange keyholes, and a chest at the bottom-right corner. Once the player unlocks the chest given as a reward by The Gatekeeper, a pair of green glowing eyes appears inside the locked cage, revealing a monster that was locked inside the cage by RobTop; the creature requests that the player frees them in exchange for a reward.

- The green key is part of a reward of the first golden chest inside the Treasure Room, which is unlocked once 50 Keymaster Chests are opened.
- The orange key is gained once the player opens the chest inside the Chamber of Time.
- The blue key is received as a reward once the player beats the "Chaos Gauntlet" inside the Gauntlets.
