Escape rooms require you to fully engage your inner survivor.  You and your friends are locked in a room with one hour to find clues, solve puzzles, and break codes to escape.  We are all logicians, sleuths, and critical thinkers; we just seldom get trapped in a psycho’s lair with one hour to escape so that we may fully express our talents.

Countdown Louisville provides you, and your friends, with an unparalleled escape room arena of sights and sounds designed to make you the main character in a real world adventure . Countdown Louisville escape rooms are challenging and, most of all, fun.

Family & Friends

Nothing brings families together like being locked in a psycho’s lair.

Real Teamwork

You won’t know what your team can accomplish until you tell them that 70% of all people that attempt to escape fail.  Quick thinking logicians will appear out of no where, leaders will emerge, and team mates will work together because they genuinely want to succeed.

Level Up Live

Your feet are on the playing floor and every second counts.

Designed for teams

Develop team spirit and trust through the challenge and fun-pressure of a ticking clock.  This will be the fastest hour your group ever spends together, they’ll love every minute, and talk about it for years.

No, and sort of. There’s nothing  scary about Countdown escape games. Our escape rooms are like movie sets scenically designed to immerse the player in the room’s theme. There are no attempts to startle or scare you in any way.

Guest safety is our first priority so all “locked” doors may be easily opened with the push of a button.  While the objective is to exit by solving the room, you may leave at any time with no assistance needed.
