Guests Pose for Fantastical Green Screen Photos, Take Home Digital Photobook

Santa Margarita, CA: Margarita Adventures zipline tours, in partnership with Eaves Entertainment, today announced the launch of the Photo Story Experience—an interactive adventure that uses green screens and high technology to create fantastical photos for participants to take home.

It all takes place in a newly built studio at the Margarita Adventures headquarters at 22720 El Camino in Santa Margarita.

Here, guests enter into a virtual world—starting with a mysterious library—where they are instructed on their coming adventure. From there, they travel through six different scenes, where they can pose and act out to create a memorable photo story. During the experience, guests are provided with a corresponding storyline that guides their poses while keeping them guessing all the way to the end.

Current props include the fuselage of an old Cessna airplane; a full-size bear; wine barrels; a replica train caboose and more. Guests can pose to make it look as though they are being chased by the bear, jumping out of the plane, riding barrels across a lake and any other poses they can dream up. 

At the conclusion of the experience, guests are provided with a digital photo album to share and remember. 

The Photo Story Experience is the brainchild of Patrick Eaves—creator of the Locked Inn escape room in Grover Beach—and Margarita Adventures proprietor Karl Wittstrom. “It’s all part of our mission to provide unique experiences that bring people together to have fun and create special memories,” Wittstrom said.

The cost is $20 per person ages 13 and up ($15 ages 6-12), with up to five people per group. More information at:

Margarita Adventures offers a uniquely thrilling perspective on a true California landmark—the historic Santa Margarita Ranch. Here, guests embark on six distinct ziplines spanning more than 7,500 combined feet, starting with an epic 2,800-foot tandem-line thrill ride and finishing with an 1,800-foot journey over Pinot Noir vines. Along the way, guides share details of the ranch’s remarkable natural features, sustainable winegrowing practices and role as part of California’s famed Mission Trail. Tours conclude in downtown Santa Margarita, where visitors can opt to sample Ancient Peaks wines, which are grown on the ranch. In 2017, Margarita Adventures launched kayak tours at Santa Margarita Lake and wildlife “Hummer” tours at Santa Margarita Ranch. For more information, visit
