Boom or Bust, launching from the newly relocated Sacramento Visitors Center, guests to the Old Sacramento Waterfront can experience what it was like to catch gold fever in the River City while getting actively involved in the intriguing Gold Fever! Game and tour. Participants take on personas of characters in history – or “real-life rascals” – who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. Never the same experience twice, Gold Fever! Game relives Sacramento’s early days when gold fever ruled amid horrible disasters that threatened fates and fortunes.
