We are Acme and Gabriel, best friends of 17 years, and our mission is to launch a world-class escape room venue that captures the essence of Sacramento in adventures that will give our guests the most fun, unique experience for their entertainment dollar.
Escape rooms are an immersive new form of location-based entertainment where players must work together as a team to solve a series of puzzles and win before time runs out...
After playing (and losing) our first escape game, we were hooked and quickly became enthusiasts! Since then, we have done an incredible amount of research, including flying out to Nashville, TN to attend the most recent escape room convention, and we are excited to bring this fast growing form of entertainment to the locals and tourists of Sacramento.
Our establishment will provide an amazingly fun outlet for corporate teams, families, and groups of friends to work together to solve engaging puzzles and complete epic missions.
We can also bring the fun to you with our portable division of escape/team building games, which are great for larger groups or add-ons to holiday parties, celebrations, and big events.
Our facility will utilize cutting edge technology, immersive design, inspiring stories, and challenging puzzles to send you and your group on epic missions through Sacramento's past, present, and future.
First we have NEO Island (available December 2018), a fun portable team building game for groups of up to 48 that we can bring to you! A great supplement to holiday parties, special occasions, corporate team building, or large sports team events.
Our storefront will be located in Downtown Sacramento and will feature the following escape room adventures.
HAUNTED TRAIN (2019)
- The Sacramento Train Museum opened in 1981, and one of the first trains they had planned on acquiring was being retired early, due to "strange technical issues..."
- Many of those who had ridden the train claimed it was haunted.
- Before its arrival in 1981, the museum prepped a team of paranormal investigators to receive and inspect the train on the day it would roll into the station.
- The train never arrived.
- Our team has located the train, and you have been chosen to help us thoroughly investigate it.
- Will you join us on this mission to uncover the secrets of the Haunted Train?
CAPITAL TREASURE (2019)
- Have you ever wondered why Sacramento is the capital of California?
- When the construction of the Capitol Annex began in 1949, a secret room was built to hide an important treasure.
- What is this “Capital Treasure” and why is it so heavily guarded?
- If you accept this mission, your team will be transported through secret underground tunnels to recover the forgotten secret from the heart of the State Capitol!
NEO SACRAMENTO (2020)
- In the year 2211, much of Sacramento culture as we know it today has been replaced by the strict, authoritative rule of NEO Corp, an advanced global tech superpower.
- How did our beloved city end up like this, and can you stop these tyrants before it's too late?
- On this very special mission, you will be transported through time to the year 2211 to acquire the "Future Tech” we need to reverse Sacramento’s fate!
If you've made it this far, we just want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to check out our Kickstarter.
We grew up in Sac, and while it still has a lot of room for growth and development, we love our city.
With your help, we have an opportunity to bring our passion for technology, Sacramento, and escape rooms to life and become a meaningful part of the fabric of this city in a big way.
All rewards will be available locally for free pick-up.
Once the Kickstarter campaign has ended, we will coordinate with you to determine the most convenient time and place for you to pick up your goods!
- The exclusive, limited-supply NEO Kickstarter Wristband will let everyone know that you made a meaningful contribution to building NEO Escape Rooms and that you help means the world to us.
- The exclusive, limited-supply NEO Kickstarter T-Shirt will turn heads as you walk down the street and people realize that you--yes, you--helped change the future for good and got hooked up with some awesome NEO Kickstarter rewards!
- This... This is it.... Imported directly from 2211, NEOcoins are both a highly sophisticated energy source and a form of currency from the future.
- Unfortunately, the technology available to us in 2018 can't harness the true power of the NEOcoin.
- What the NEOcoin WILL give you is an alphanumerical code that can be used once for free admission to any one of our escape adventures once we have officially launched!
- Prior to our Grand Opening next summer, NEO Escape Rooms will be hosting a major celebration party that you will NOT want to miss! This is the event that everyone will be talking about next summer!
- There will be amazing food, live music, red carpet, local celebrities, as well as technology from the future, of course!
- The Honeycomb. Our lobby will showcase a series of inter-connected and LED-lit engraved wooden hexagons in honeycomb formation.
- Each engraving will honor the person, couple, or group that claims a Tier 3, 4, or 5 reward.
- Be remembered for years to come with a beautiful wooden engraving of your own, and be recognized as a key contributor to the NEO Revolution!
- Get your party started with NEO Island!
- With a capacity of up to 48 players per game, NEO Island is perfect for corporate team building events, weddings, or even large birthday parties.
- Our team will set up a portable escape adventure at a venue of your choice and your group will have a blast solving fascinating puzzles together!
- Regular price for us to set up a NEO Island event for a full group is normally $1,400 - so GET THIS DEAL WHILE IT LASTS!
- Yes, immortality.
- If you are one of the select few who chooses the path of immortality with NEO, you will join us in creating a major NEO character in your image, hero or villain, that will be featured in one of our escape room adventures, as well as in future NEOverse novels, comic books, television shows, and movies.
- Can you imagine what it would be like if Tony Stark, Peter Parker, Superman, or some other really well known hero was based entirely off... you? Your unique look... Your name... Your personality... Your awesomeness... You.
- Live forever through epic NEO stories that will, in two and a half years, go mainstream and become wildly popular. (We checked.)
We are big fans, and former backers, of Kickstarter projects. When we sat down to figure out how we could fund the initial jump start that we needed to begin pre-building NEO, Kickstarter seemed like the obvious solution to raise those funds quickly while also offering some great specials to our early supporters!
We are in the process of securing funding (in the form of a loan) for the major materials and labor costs of building out the facility.
The process has been slow, and in order to launch on time (Summer 2019) we must immediately begin investing in and developing...
NEOcoins - $1,000 - a high-powered energy source and form of currency from 2211. Each NEOcoin comes with a one-time use code for a free escape adventure at NEO
NEO Island - $2,000 - our flagship portable escape adventure (up to 48 players per hour)
Cutting Edge Tech - $3,000 - electronics, lighting, sound, computers, Arduinos, etc
Key Materials - $4,000 - custom puzzle and prop design and fabrication
In total, we are looking to raise $10,000 in contributions that will act as the jet fuel we need to successfully "kick-start" NEO Escape Rooms and launch it into orbit!
100% of funds raised in excess of our funding goal will go toward acquiring more (and better) materials to build even more immersive puzzles and props, and toward unlocking some special surprises we think you'll like, so...
Join the Revolution TODAY!
Risks and challenges
Every dollar we raise will be invested in the materials and labor we will need to produce a number of complex puzzles and props that you are going to LOVE!
With your contributions to building NEO Escape Rooms, we will be on track to launch Summer 2019. All contributors will receive a weekly update email of our progress, setbacks, victories, and other insider-only pieces of bonus content!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
