Dave and Jacob Larson welcome haunt fans to their home every year to experience a family-friendly walk-through full of spooky, pirate fun. But as with many other haunts this year, COVID-19 made the typical walk-through experience impossible. So instead, the father-son team created a yard show — with an origin story. Full of special effects, lighting and projections, the nearly-10-minute yard show also features live scare actors — at a safe distance. Guests watching the show must wear face coverings and maintain social distance by standing on designated spots on the sidewalk. Though it is family-friendly, the show’s recommended for ages 10 and up.
