Meet The Owners
Born and raised in Fresno and Reedley and being avid gamers, the owners know what Central Valley escape room players want in an escape game!

Calvin and Kiara met in college, and made Next-Gen their dream while attending Fresno State.

Their goal was to bring fantastic high-quality sets with compelling stories in an escape room.

While at State, they met Dan Carrion, who was instrumental in mentoring the budding entrepreneurs to showcase how to build the hand-crafted sets we are now known for.
