About Beat The Room

A Family Experience

We built this business as a family and want others to enjoy it with their own family and friends. We pride ourselves on offering quality escape room experiences for groups of all ages. Our rooms may contain some surprises!

While You Wait

We have a large, well-lit lobby offering ample seating, water, and board games. Get the party started by playing a game in the lobby while you wait for your room. Our space is welcoming and perfect for your next event! We can accommodate groups of up to 60, making this a great team-building experience, holiday party, or group celebration.

We Look Beyond the Locked Door

Our rooms are designed for the customer to solve an objective, not just find a key. So, if you’re worried about getting claustrophobic, many of our experiences do not involve you being “locked” in a room. Instead, you are trying to solve a mystery before the time is up! Enjoy puzzle-solving fun, without the anxiety of feeling “trapped.”


The Zillner’s fervent passion for escape rooms led them to establish their own venture, which began with a single escape room in July 2016. This endeavor blossomed into a second location in Vacaville, CA by July 2017. Over the ensuing years, Beat The Room flourished, evolving into the largest family-owned escape room destination in the Sacramento region.

In 2023, a significant milestone unfolded as their long-time manager, Noel Leckemby, assumed ownership of the enterprise. Under their stewardship and the skillful leadership of Beat The Room, a thrilling new chapter unfolded with the introduction of our inaugural horror game, “Krampus: Violent Night,” in November of the same year. Since then, Beat The Room has remained committed to crafting bespoke experiences, drawing upon the collective creativity of luminaries Jack Rand, Ramon Higuera, Nic Peevers and Sarah Leiper.
