About The Best Escape Rooms In Elk Grove

Although I was born and raised in Sacramento, it was in Louisiana, of all places, that I tried my first escape room.The front desk staff of the hotel I was staying in asked my group if we were looking for things to do. They suggested we try an escape room near us. My first thought was, “what’s an escape room?” and my second thought was “what the hell, let’s give it a shot.”

As corny as it may sound, that first escape room experience was simply magical. Even after we returned from Louisiana, I kept thinking about that escape room, an escape room in general. For months I thought about these ridiculous escape games. I even thought about putting one in my backyard! It was only after playing about 20 more escape rooms in Sacramento and the surrounding area did I finally realize what I had to do: I had to open an escape room of my own, and in 2016 Exit Strategy Games was born.

Before this, I had always been into board games, movies, and nature. I’ve owned Wild Birds Unlimited, a nature store, In Sacramento, CA, for over 15 years. Nothing like this was ever on my radar, but once I got hooked on escape rooms, I got hooked badly. My escape room obsession is still going strong. In December 2018 I opened my second location in Mammoth Lakes with two brand new escape rooms. My goal for our Elk Grove location is to eventually have four escape rooms here and possibly expand even further. I can’t wait to build more escape rooms, because I truly love this business, it’s so fun — hopefully, you’ll think so, too!
