Dark Harvest has teamed up with Pirates Cave, formally a home haunt in  the city of Orange. to create our haunted attraction called "Shady Pines Asylum." This is Dark Harvest's 7th year as a pro haunt, and Pirates Cave's first. Come out and experience a haunted walkthrough attraction created for the communities of Orange County. We plan to have 25 actors at the event, high-tech scares, and spooky sets.  The highlight of the event will be a simulated elevator ride created by Pirate's Cave Productions. This elevator will be a very exciting, immersive experience, as well as provide some entertaining videos for your story.

Story Line of Haunt

Shady Pines Asylum is quietly nestled just outside of the national forest. Its rustic design and walking trails through the forest provide a comforting aesthetic for guests to recover and receive therapy. It’s that time again when once a year, investors are allowed to tour the facility.  Dr. Bodkin, with his new Aspiration Therapy, has made great strides in our cancer serum research because of your investments. With your additional support, we hope to bring that product to market by the end of the year.  We are also excited to show you our newly renovated west wing.  Be sure and make your appointment now as spots fill up quickly.

Dark Harvest Information

Adam and Kerry LeBlanc were the Owner-Operators of the Fleshyard Haunted Maze. Adam is a Unix Systems Engineer by day but devotes tons of man hours to his love of all things haunted.

Since his early teens, he has been obsessed with creating mazes and scaring people. He started putting on small-scale garage haunts as a kid with some friends on his street. As an adult, that passion for creativity never left and he has done multiple events at his own house. 

In 2015, he wanted to create a full-scale independent commercial haunt.  2019 was the fifth and final year doing the Fleshyard as a separate entity.  In 2020, he helped create the "Harvest of Horrors" event at Frosty's Forest Pumpkin Patch in Chino.  In 2021, The Fleshyard was officially rebranded as "Dark Harvest".  The irony of his passion is the fact that he is VERY easy to scare and startle, so everyone loves to take advantage of it!

Pirates Cave Haunt Information

​ The Pirate’s Cave ended its 22-year run at our home in Orange in 2021. Our final event "The Curse of Calico Jack” earned lots of great reviews.  Unfortunately, with nearly 5000 attending the event over 9 nights in 2021, we simply grew too big for the neighborhood.  In 2022 we changed our name to “Pirate’s Cave Productions” and now provide event design, social media marketing, consulting, rentals, and technology integration design to other haunts and large events.  We are very excited to be teaming with Dark Harvest this season to bring some of our technical scares and show moments we are known for.  For more information about The Pirates Cave Haunt, visit our website.
