The Pirates Cave Home Haunt

Dave Larson started creating home haunts since he was a young boy taking over his parents garage in the 1970’s. In 1999 the Larson family moved into their own home in Orange, and the Halloween on Garfield Avenue has never been the same! It all started small with one mask and a shovel in the front yard. Today we have visitors from all over Orange County and beyond to check out our family appropriate pirate themed haunt. We don’t care for blood, so our haunt is a lot like a scarier version of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. Each year we try to up the ante with new props and scares. Even though we keep it clean, the design and scares are guaranteed to impress everyone who comes to visit. Admission is FREE, but donations help us offset our expenses and keep the pirates coming back year after year. Let us know if you are interested in being one of our sponsors!

On deck is one of our personal favorite home haunts - Pirates Cave Haunt! This pirate-themed haunt has everything you’d want in a spooky good time - obscenely high quality sets, great actors, and a quick story that unravels during your adventure.

Photos expertly captured by Westcoaster
Each October, one family home in an Orange neighborhood transforms its exterior into , a spooky pirate-themed mining tour for all ages. It's a passion project for Dave Larson and his son, Jacob Larson, who said they are always adding new sights to see. While some would say Halloween is all about the candy, for Dave, it’s about the experiences his family can create. This year the free maze has expanded throughout the Larsons property line and visitors can find a simulated elevator ride that actually moves.

"It's like being able to build a tree house with your son every year and those times you get together are so special," Dave Larson said.

Pirates Cave Haunt
"You are now part of a tour of a mine, 450 feet below ground. Welcome to Larson and Son Mining Co, where you’ll board an old, rickety elevator to make your descent into the earth for a viewing of a real-life active mine. But be careful of what you find down there. And if you find any buried treasure—definitely don’t open it. You never know what might be hiding inside." - Taylor Winters
Located in Orange, Pirates Cave Haunt is a must-see with the production value of a professional one! With amazing tech, a strong narrative, and some theatrical scenes, this was definitely one of our favorites. Check out our review on for more information!
