Great fun
Mar 2018 • Family
This was a lot of fun and the room was awesome. We have probably done 8 or 10 escape rooms all over the country and we thought this was one of the best
We did the most difficult room and we found the staff really nice and super helpful ... just helpful enough !

Jail Break
Mar 2018 • Family
This room was fantastic! Definitely one of the best escape rooms I have done before! Geoff Simons, Hugo, and Xavier were there to answer all of our questions, very helpful! I would definitely recommend doing an escape room at the Escape Countdown you will not regret it!

Our first escape!
Dec 2017 • Family
We were looking for something fun to do on a Saturday afternoon and stopped in without a booking. We were quickly helped by the friendly staff and chose a room at our level and appropriate for our kids. The North Pole Escape was challenging but not frustrating and we escaped with 45 seconds to spare. Highly recommended!

Prison Break Fun!

We’ve been to about 12 escape rooms and this one was our top 5! Our game Master “size 17” was wonderful and the facility was great.

Wonderful Evening in Paris ...
Oct 2017 • Couples
Surprised my wife with a delightful evening of fun and puzzles while we spent an “Evening in Paris”. Pedro was our host and provided us with an just the right atmosphere. While we did not quite make it out, the time was well worth it. We plan to return and make it a family event. We had so much fun. Thanks for the “escape”, if only for an hour.

So much fun!
Oct 2017 • Couples
My wife and I took a day off from work to do fun things while the kids were at school. We had never done an escape room so I called and the staff was very friendly helping us choose a room (we did the Paris room for couples). The place is clean and the staff are very helpful. You can hold up a help sign if you choose to and they will give you a hint if you are stuck. We absolutely loved it and will definitely do again.

Bad Customer Service
Sep 2017 • Friends
Tried to go a little before eight, and didn't get helped for another 10-15 minutes. Finally, one of the people working there said we could do one of two they had open. A couple of minutes later, some one else came out and said we could not do either because they closed at eight, even though sign out side clearly said "Open".

Thanks for stopping in, we would like to apologize again as we did in person. The sign was accidentally left on while we were cleaning up. We do close at 8pm on weekdays and generally stay after 8 to clean up. The Manager was notified that night and we were unable to help facilitate your walk in for that day. We do apologize and hope you come back to try one of our Escape Rooms. We do recommend booking online prior to coming to ensure we are open and also the room you want is available. Please email us so we can help earn your business! Email us at tampa@escapecountdown.com Thanks again and I hope we can change your mind on your 1 star review! -The Escape Countdown Team

Mad Hatter & Escape from Gaspar Island
Jun 2017 • Friends
We are huge escape game fans and have experienced 20+ games across Florida.

The Escape Countdown staff was very friendly and engaged in the game! We played two of the escape games - the Mad Hatter and the Escape from Gaspar Island.

Escape from Gaspar Island
The game involved a variety of different types of puzzles and clues - including both riddles and hands-on problem solving. It had a fun theme and the staff was helpful to provide tips along the way. Overall a fun theme - recommended for beginners/intermediate.

Mad Hatter
The game theme and design was simple. The puzzles focused on word play riddles and mind games. There were quite a few red herrings within the rooms. Overall the Mad Hatter was an average game and would suggest it for beginner level.

Last minute extra time to spend...
Apr 2017 • Family
Our flight was delayed by a few hours so not enough for the big attractions but enough to try to solve the puzzles! My 13 y/o daughter, 78 y/o mother and myself were able to work together and get a lot of laughs. It was an awesome memory and extremely fun!

Bachelorette party fun
Mar 2017 • Friends
We did the "Escape from Gaspar Island" room for my friend's bachelorette party and had a great time. You feel very immersed in the experience and everyone's adrenaline was pumping when we were down to the last two minutes and escaped!
