Escape Sacramento is located close to downtown and has easily accessible street parking (surprise!). The building looked like a house and it seemed like a friendly neighborhood escape room! We opted to play "Seance" which we were told was a "Gen-1" room meaning a first generation room without any fancy bells and whistles. We played this room with another random group of four and they were proud, self-proclaimed nerds straight out of "The Big Bang Theory".
Everything about this room was simple and well put together which makes for a room worth trying. The story, the puzzles, the decor were all ok and what you'd expect from an average escape room. There were a few interesting puzzles that had some nice moments but there was nothing too out of the ordinary. The game master was great and enthusiastic which is always appreciated.
If you are in the area, it's worth trying out knowing that it is a Gen-1 room.
