Gold Fever! Game

Take our Adventure Tour… the Gold Fever! Game

Our all-new guided Gold Fever! Game is never the same twice. Relive Sacramento’s boomtown days, when gold ruled and you were always an eye blink away from triumph or tragedy.

You’ll become one of the real-life rascals who scratched and clawed to make this the center of the Gold Rush. The Gold Fever! Game throws in elements of chance that may change your fate.

Will floods, fires and disease destroy your fortune, or will you escape to thrive anew in the gold State? Will you grow rich with the new railroad and steamboats in the brand-new Capital City – or blow it all at the gaming tables? You won’t know until you catch Gold Fever!

The tours start and end at the Sacramento Visitors Center, 1002 Second Street, near the corner of Second and J streets.

Please note, when events are occurring downtown, at the Golden One Center, or at Raley Field, parking can be sparse in Old Sacramento. Please leave extra time to find parking if taking a tour on an event day.
