About Our Escape Room

Skip to the FAQ.

Located at 1831 I St in Midtown Sacramento, Escape Sacramento is a cooperative, real-life "escape room" -- an adventure space where nothing is as it seems. You and your team are trapped; you have 60 minutes to escape a room by solving a series of puzzles that will challenge your mind and confound your senses. Explore, adapt, work together, think creatively -- and you just might succeed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click on each question to see its answer.
What's it like?
Picture this: You’re locked in a room, along with 1-6 other people -- old friends or new, it’s up to you. A countdown timer shows that you have 60 minutes remaining. You look around the room -- a locked tool chest; strange markings on the wall; books with their pages torn out… What does it all mean? You can only hope that by working together, solving puzzle after puzzle, your team will find a way out before time runs out. The clock is ticking…
Who can play?
For safety and because of the abstract reasoning involved, our games are only for players ages 10+. Players aged 10-14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult; and all minors (ages 10-17) must bring a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Infants and/or children under age 10 are allowed only if booking the whole room for your party and are supervised at all times throughout the game by a legal adult guardian. Because our games are active and many of the puzzles require dexterity and sensory acuity to solve, the activity may not be appropriate for persons with limited mobility or sensory perception; for details, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate.
Are there different games?
Yes! Currently you can either use paranormal investigatory skills to close the portal to another realm, search an abandoned gallery for clues in an attempt to track a missing artist, or attempt to pull off a heist by stealing valuable artifacts from a mountain villa. The Séance can accommodate up to 6 players, or 12 in a head-to-head game; the Gallery can accommodate up to 7; and the Heist 2.0 can accommodate up to 8.
Is it scary? Is it safe?
Our games may have some thrilling moments, but they are not inherently scary. They are also 100% safe: the room you will be "locked" in contains an emergency exit that is open to you at all times, even if you're just feeling uncomfortable or need to use the restroom. If you're bringing friends and they don't know what they're getting themselves into, don't worry -- we'll do our best to put them at ease.
How do I get tickets?
Our games are $27 per ticket -- 1 ticket per person -- except for students and children, who can play for only $23 per ticket. Spots go fast, so if you and your friends/date/family/coworkers have a particular date in mind, we suggest that you book a game as soon as possible. We do not accept walk-ins. Gift vouchers are available here.
Parties? Team-building?
Yes, and yes! We've hosted multiple birthdays and been chosen for team-building by companies like Monstanto, Intel, and Kaiser Permanente. Our venue can accommodate private events of up to 12, 18, 26, or (with back-to-back games) even more. See our Full Venue Bookings page for details on team size and pricing.
Do you have a waitlist?
No, sorry. Cancellations are rare and typically last minute, so we don't have a waitlist. We recommend that you book your game a week or so in advance to secure the best time for your party. If you have any questions about booking a game, contact us here.
Do you have gift vouchers?
Vouchers come in a range of values, from 1 player to a group of 6, and are the perfect treat for the adventurer in your life! Gift vouchers are available here.
Any good places for food or drink nearby?
Absolutely! Because we are nestled in the heart of midtown Sacramento, there are tons of delicious places to visit before or after your game! Here's a list of the Escape Sacramento Team's favorite nearby places.
