The ghastly costumes and decorations trimming The Best Halloween Store Ever’s shelves breathe afterlife into the live actors and haunting façades of Danny’s Dungeon. Spooky thespians lurk behind glowing brick-and-mortar walls and wait to tear down the brave fronts of all who pass. Danny's staff can turn on the house lights to show timid youngsters that monsters are merely men in costumes and gargoyles merely shaved kittens. Those who emerge from Danny’s Dungeon—without surrendering to one of many emergency exits—break free into The Best Halloween Store Ever, where they collect a free reward. Before and after romps through the ghostly crypt, guests can join the party outside, munching handheld delights from a food truck and busting moves to a live DJ’s beats, which pulsate like the heart of a nervous traffic light.
When catering parties and special events, Roma Italian Deli's staffers enter hoisting trays of sandwiches, cannolis, and tiramisu. At Roma's sit-down eatery, visitors can have a tasty party of their own in the dining room or outside on the breezy patio. The menu begins with an antipasto salad layered with cold cuts, fresh veggies, and a blanket of Italian dressing. Hearty subs stuffed with meats, such as genoa salami or prosciutto, furnish bellies alongside a choice of soup or salad, while fettucini noodles tossed in creamy marinara sauce serve as a bed for grilled sausages or an ugly wig for freaking out blind dates.
Kids Ahoy transports kids to a fantastic land beneath the sea, embracing them in wall-to-wall murals swimming with images of pirates, mermaids, and ocean life. Amid the watery decor, safe and age-appropriate activities beckon little ones to roam, bounce, and butterfly stroke through the air. Choruses of laughter echo in crawling tubes, moon bounces, and plastic cars. Basketball hoops await free throws, and numerous wavy slides shoot downward from plastic play sets. The staff also creates a safe, soft environment for babies in the Baby Corner and designates swings specifically for toddlers.
Kids Ahoy's imaginative setting is available for both open play and private festivities. During party packages, characters such as pirates delight guests with games while assistants paint faces in aquatic-theme designs inspired by fish fashion magazines.
In the 1930s, using stone quarried from his nearby ranch, silent-movie actor Francis Lederer finally made noise building a horse stable for his wife, Marion. Over the years, the site became a historical and cultural monument that now houses the Hidden Chateau & Gardens, an event space rented out for weddings and parties. Outside the chateau's impressive façade, swatches of greenery trim stone paths, and sprays of water trickle down the tiers of garden fountains. Towering shade trees wrapped in twinkling lights and lush, verdant flora sprout throughout the 1.5-acre property.
Inside, under a Spanish-style roof, two private rooms ensure brides and grooms don't see each other before their blind date down the aisle. Aside from weddings and other private parties, the gardens also play host to public events such as wine pairings, art shows, and bridal expos. Additionally, an onsite boutique collects everything from furniture to work by local artists, with some items available for rent for events that take place on the property.
