About this Activity
That's you, in case you were wondering!
During this escape room adventure, you'll find yourself trapped in the morbid yet surprisingly festive abode of a serial killer that styles himself after the mythical Krampus, who's basically just like Santa, except with horns, claws, and and penchant for punishing the naughty in terrifying and gruesome ways.
You'll have to scour the room for clues and solve a series of puzzles in order to undercover the secret of this mysterious villain, thus stopping him from doing any more harm. But be careful! You've only got one hour to get the job done, before Krampus comes home, when you'll get a somewhat unpleasant present yourself!
Luckily this is a team game, and you'll be working with a small group of up to six fellow participants to get the job done. Nobody should be alone for the holidays. Not with Krampus on the loose.
Note: There is a maximum of 6 people per room.

Holy crap! This place was incredible. Tonight was my first time doing an escape room; and I was extremely impressed. This place is the diamond of escape Rooms. Had so much fun and will definitely come back.

I brought my (super smart) 12yr-old niece and we did the Tiki Palace room. Neither of us had done an escape room before and we read good reviews about Countdown Live Escape Games online. This place did not disappoint!! We did not solve the room in the allotted 60min but we had a lot of fun and talked about it all night after we left and even the next day. The staff is excellent. They gave us enough information to have a chance to solve the room before we started (hint: listen to the staff very carefully!) and even gave us a little nudge when they saw we were so far off track that we had no chance of finishing in time. It was the perfect balance of fun and challenge. Loved it. I will definitely be back with friends and family.

Great place for a different kind of fun. As a first time visitor I will return for the next challenge. Staff is friendly and organized.

We enjoyed our time playing the game. We felt like Indiana jones for a while. We were a group of three, it would have been better with more people Involved but still, we felt a rush of excitement and really got into it. We didn't know what to expect and walked out of there in a really good mood. Five stars.

First escape room experience! No complaints. Exciting, very challenging (for all 6 of us), and friendly staff. We escaped from the Tiki Palace with the help of 3 hints and 3 minutes left to spare.
Madison H.The Krampus Escape Game April 11, 2017
Countdown's Krampus room was my first escape room experience, and it was everything I hoped it would be! The theming was great, and my group enjoyed the non-linear puzzle style because we all had plenty to be working on throughout the game. We'll definitely be visiting again to check out the other rooms.
Anna S.The Spaceship Escape Game April 10, 2017
Loved it. Logical, interesting, original, unexpected. It made my day.
Travis D.The Spaceship Escape Game April 8, 2017
First time escape room. Fantastic experience. Accommodating and friendly staff. When half our party was late they allowed us to delay our game. Extremely well crafted room with excellent ambiance. Will go again.

This was my first time at an escape room my son and daughter in law took me they have been ro 20 escape rooms already but my son even said count down was really good and fast service and the room was amazing.after going to my first escape room I got hooked I can't wait to go back to view the other rooms they have we went to the tiki one you will not be disappointed I'm telling you if you haven't tried an escape room make this your first one and place to go you will love it and be hooked on them just like me. good luck on getting out.oh ya if you do or don't make it out they take a pic of you and the people you brought with you and give you one also to go home with which was fun.
Lexi M.The Krampus Escape Game April 3, 2017
Countdown is definitely one of the best escape rooms in LA. I've been to plenty of other places and this one just might be my new favorite.
The one thing that really stood out was how very well done and thought out the room was. We did the Krampus room, and it was SUPER creepy and unsettling, but so much fun. Their use of technology was better than any other escape room I've done. It was pretty challenging so unfortunately my group did not make it out. (but we did make it to the last clue!)
This is so much fun for a celebration, or even just a night out with friends. I can't wait to come back and try their other rooms!
Cin Cin G.The Spaceship Escape Game April 3, 2017
Came here with co-workers and we almost escaped. I have to say it was a lot of fun as I would definitely recommend it to anybody who is looking for an escape room.
Angela M.The Tiki Palace Escape Game April 2, 2017
Tiki palace was great fun even though we didn't escape! The host Collin cares about the business and the customers experience. Owner, please give this guy a raise. I have to say this was one my favorite escape rooms that I have ever done.
Kayla P.The Tiki Palace Escape Game April 1, 2017
My group of 8 escaped the Tiki Room with only 27 seconds to spare! This place is great: the decor and props were quality, the puzzles were difficult enough to be a challenge (we had to ask for a few hints). The Tiki Room had a bonus puzzle within the room which we could've won special prizes with. We didn't solve that one but it was cool because a couple people in my group focused only on that while the rest of us tried to get the door open. Staff was friendly and check in and everything was easy. Would definitely recommend!
Kitty H.The Krampus Escape Game March 12, 2017
Lots of fun! Our first escape room and could not have asked for a better experience! With free parking in the back, this was a great way to spend time in DTLA. Staff is friendly and informative.
Omar C.The Krampus Escape Game March 9, 2017
Overall theme 5/5
We decided to do the Krampus room, it really captures the theme of a Christmas horror story. The puzzles were difficult but not impossible we will be back, to do the space room.
My group of 4 do at least one to two rooms a week. I would highly recommend this company and the Krampus room. We will be back
Amanda S.The Krampus Escape Game March 9, 2017
Loved this escape room, the Krampus. Will definitely come again. Lived the design. Made it in time I really recommend. Will be back soon for the pandorus...
Timothy S.The Krampus Escape Game March 9, 2017
Had a great time doing the Krampus escape with friends. Bring 4 or more for best experience.
Carrie B.The Spaceship Escape Game March 5, 2017

Samantha C.The Krampus Escape Game March 2, 2017
We did the tiki room and krampus! Both were great but out of the 2 krampus was the best! If you like the horror theme this is for you! Great setup and def a couple scares but nothing to horrible(but I am also a giant baby) you and your friends will have a blast here!
Amanda S.The Tiki Palace Escape Game February 21, 2017
Had a great first time at this escape room. We came with a big group and did all 3 scenarios. My specific small group did the scary scenario which was very intriguing. It wasn't very scary more thrilling then terrifying. We were very close to finishing the puzzle and all wished we had more time. Will definitely be back to try more.

Came last night for my first escape room. My group and I had an absolute blast trying to escape our room. We did the Krampus themed mystery. Our friends did the other two. I thought the clues and puzzles were very well thought out and the room had just the right amount of creepiness.
John L.The Krampus Escape Game January 26, 2017
Awesome experience! We did the Krampus Room! It was PERFECT! you can tell they have alot of money into their rooms. This was the best room I have done... I have done like 30+ rooms too!
Ynx C.The Tiki Palace Escape Game January 5, 2017
This is by far my best escape experience. The decorations, props, atmosphere, and puzzles are all very impressive. We tried the Tiki, the set up was surprisingly good, with tons of locks and a lot to explore. The difficulty was just right for one hour and six people. Plus free drinks when you checked in! YEAH! Will definitely go back for the other two rooms.
Bob G.The Spaceship Escape Game November 28, 2016
I have now experienced all three rooms at Countdown, having now been through the Pandora Mission, formerly known as the Spaceship room. Wow, truly impressive. The tech is astonishing. The puzzles are difficult but part of an immersive experience that elevates this room above almost every room in town and this company into the stratosphere. Superlative.
Lam M.The Tiki Palace Escape Game November 7, 2016
We came here for my friend's birthday this past weekend. This is my third escape room and I was very impressed. We did the Tiki room and the decor was adorable and not to give anything away, but it was more high-tech than we expected. We managed to escape and I think the difficulty level was just right. We had a good group so we worked well together.
The staff were friendly. One of my friends was running a few minutes late and they were very accommodating. Overall, I'd definitely come back. I really want to try their Krampus room!
Also, if you check in, you get a free soda!
Fallon M.The Tiki Palace Escape Game October 28, 2016
Fun, fun, fun. Really enjoyed a great night out with friends. We did the Tiki room which was great, looking forward to the next one.
Ciji M.The Spaceship Escape Game October 16, 2016
This place is so much fun! The staff is amazing and super helpful. There's plenty of free parking around the area. The facility is clean and well-kept. We had a great time!
Amanda H.The Spaceship Escape Game October 15, 2016
Amazing!! Me and my family went to one at a different location and we fell in love! But then we came to this place and WOW doesn't even compare!!! This place isn't just about lock and key but having hidden doors and random compartments that pop open. Very tech savvy and it makes solving a puzzle even cooler Bc something just pops open or lights up or goes off! The staff is also full of energy and smiles and cheered us on before and after! Loved tonight!
Jerry . C.The Spaceship Escape Game October 9, 2016
Fun for the whole family! 6 kids and 4 adults and even though we didn't quite make it out of the room we had a blast!!!! We will definitely be back!
Amanda L.The Krampus Escape Game October 6, 2016
We escaped from Krampus (my 30th room) last night and absolutely loved it!
-Wonderful production value with a theme that carries throughout
-A little spooky! There were some fun surprises!
-A good mix of puzzle types
I loved that there was an "easter egg" box in the room for an extra challenge if time allowed.
Can't wait to go back and try their Tiki and new Pandorus Mission rooms ^^
Krissy T.The Krampus Escape Game September 27, 2016
I absolutely loved the Krampus room and I can't wait to try the others! The puzzles have a good variety, so everyone in the group can feel that they have something to offer. The overall customer service experience is wonderful and the look and feel of the room is so fun. There were things that pleasantly surprised me about it and I highly recommend it.
June Y.The Tiki Palace Escape Game September 19, 2016
My group was 8 people and it was really fun.
We have played the Tiki Palace and thought that we could not complete the room; However, we escaped the room with 3 minutes remaining! WOO HOO!!
It was super fun, and I want to try other escape rooms soon!
*There is free parking lot in the back of the building.
Whitney A.The Krampus Escape Game September 12, 2016
This was our first time doing an escape room and it was super fun. I appreciated the staff's welcoming attitude. They also were very helpful in giving us a few clues while we were trying to escape because we were struggling. We did the Krampus room and unfortunately did not escape successfully. Besides that fact, I loved the room design. I really felt as if I was put in a real situation. It was kind of scary but not too much and I am a relative scary person. I plan on returning again!
Ann K.The Tiki Palace Escape Game September 12, 2016
Tiki palace was super fun. My group was 6 ppl including me. I think that was the perfect size.
The guy who welcomed us was awesome. Sad i didn't get his name to give him a shout out.
Also went to Rustiq Table next door afterwards. Recommending both!!
Cory N.The Spaceship Escape Game August 8, 2016
