I have completed over 30 escape rooms and Countdown is by far the most creative and best constructed escape room I have ever played. We did the castle and abduction rooms back to back. Each room was very unique in both clues and decor. The...More

SO fun! I've done almost every room now. Each one is totally different but full of fun and surprises. The castle is tough but really fun! Love the customer service and the uniqueness of it all. Cheaper and way better than Breakout Games.

We had a good time breaking out of the castle! We all worked together and really enjoyed ourselves. Wanted to do another one but decided to save it for another day!

I love this place! I’ve already played each game once and some of them twice. Some games have more mental puzzles and some are more physical. Each room is very detailed. It’s really fun to go as a group, probably best to have around 5-6...More
