Pirate’s Cave Haunt has been providing family-friendly scares to the city of Villa Park & Orange for 22 years now. It’s a labor of love headed up by the father and son team Dave & Jacob Larson, at our home in Orange County, CA.
New to the neighborhood, Dave started the unofficial Pirate’s Cave back in 1999. The first year Dave simply stood out in the front yard with a “Phantom of the Opera” mask and a shovel, and ever since then the haunt has been evolving.
In 2004, his son Jacob was born into the haunt life. Over the years, Jacob grew a strong passion for Halloween and slowly began to help his dad more and more every year to construct the annual haunted house at their home.
For their 2020 season, Jacob wanted to expand the story of their haunt and created the highly lauded “Pirate’s Cave Origins”. A 10 minute narrated story featuring water fx, dmx lighting, and actors in the front yard of their home.
The father and son now work hand in hand and create memorable screams for years to come.
