Vince Laliberte / pursuetheclues.com
“The Countdown Kings Escape Room Timer is everything I need for a very reasonable price. There are so many timers to choose from in the industry, good and bad, but none of them are competitive in terms of pricing. Not only is this timer the most cost-effective, it has every feature and layout I want for the various themes I’m running now and the ones I have in my head for the future. The product is also designed well, and was made to be very user-friendly. I’m very happy with my purchase.”

Dennis Roelofs / movingart.nl
“We downloaded the Escape Room Timer for a (possible) new TV-show. The timer works great and it is really nice to be able to change the remaining duration even while the timer is running. We’ve made use of the possibility to customize our backgrounds, notifications, time-out screen and sounds to make the timer fit perfectly within the style of our show.”
