How is Countdown Louisville working to ensure you have a blast playing escape games in a healthy environment?

First, all escape games at Countdown Louisville are private.  Only you and your team will be in the escape room.

Second, Countdown Louisville is committed to following CDC Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations for limiting the transmission of COVID- 19.  We disinfect the high-touch surfaces in our escape games prior to each use with hospital-grade virus-killing and germicidal wipes.

Our new check-in procedure ensures you come in contact with no strangers at our facility.  Our staff will use PPE and have temperature checks at the start of each shift.

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.
