In nearby Laguna Niguel terrors come to contemporary life for one of the spookier events in the area. There was a hotel in the Valley of Crowns that sat empty for years due to mysterious sounds. The hallowed halls are haunted by those from the past, screaming, and searching for answers at last! Guides will escort groups through the old hotel, the lobby, kitchen, and the gardens of HELL! This popular, but terrifying, event is recommended for guests 8 years old and up. The haunted trails are located in Crown Valley Community Park at 29751 Crown Valley Parkway. For more information please call (949) 425-5100 or check out their facebook page.
If the last event was a bit too scary for your younger tricksters, these next two promise to be a real treat for kids of all ages.
