Billing itself as "South Orange County's largest family-friendly Halloween attraction," Casa Creepy Haunted House made its debut in 2016, with plans to become an annual event. Set in a house built in 1927, it features old-fashioned Halloween atmosphere, with werewolves, vampires, and Frankenstein's monster. Actors and animatronics provide the jump-scares, while classic black-and-white horror films screen for an audience of cadavers and skeletons.
Casa Creepy reminds Hollywood Gothique of the Halloween mazes that haunt-goers once encountered inside shopping malls, back in the days when trick-or-treaters could find an enjoyable Halloween experience for $10 to $15 instead of heading to an expensive theme park.
