Zathura location: South Pasadena, California

Zathura location: the space-bound house: Oaklawn Avenue, South Pasadena, California

From the same author as Jumanji (this was a follow up story), and with a similar premise – only this time, the board game whisks a suburban house into outer space.

Safely back and unharmed from its intergalactic travels, the Craftsman-style home is 216 Oaklawn Avenue, just south of Columbia Street, west of South Fair Oaks Avenue, in South Pasadena. Please remember, as ever, this is a private home and respect residents’ privacy.
