Twisted Tales: Haunted House

October 17 – 31, 2019

The City of El Segundo Recreation and Parks along with the El Segundo Rotary Club and El Segundo Masonic Lodge are proud to present Twisted Tales: Haunted House at the El Segundo Teen Center from October 17 through October 31.

Twisted Tales takes classic fairy tales to a whole new level! Fall down the rabbit hole into famous fairy tale stories with a dark twist! Guests will encounter an alternate timeline from Hansel and Gretel’s not-so-sweet adventure, to Beauty & the Beast’s happily never after, as well as a diabolical operation replacing tea time for Alice and her friends!

This exciting attraction will open on Thursday, October 17 and operate until Halloween on Thursday, October 31. There will be special, kid-friendly shows on October 24 and October 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. and October 20 and 27 from 4 to 5 p.m. The house lights will be left on and the monsters are tamed or taking a nap.

During regular event nights, the monsters will be wide awake and ready to leave you shivering in your shoes! Hours are on Fridays and Saturdays, 6 to 10 p.m., Sundays, 6 to 9 p.m. with an extra special, scary night on Halloween from 6 to 11 p.m. Don’t worry, there will be various exit points along the maze just in case it gets a little too scary!

Pre-sale wristbands are available for purchase at the Clubhouse, Checkout Building and Joslyn Center in Recreation Park for $15 per person. Wristbands will be $20 at the door and during operational hours. Adults are free if accompanying children during the kid-friendly show times. Wristbands will not be available for pre-sale rates when Twisted Tales is in operation.

The El Segundo Teen Center will be closed beginning Monday, September 16 for the build-out and will re-open on Friday, November 8. The exterior locations, Skate Park and Basketball Court, will remain open and supervised during this time but will be closed during Twisted Tales operating hours.

Twisted Tales is a fundraiser with all proceeds benefitting the Teen Center, El Segundo Rotary Club, El Segundo Masonic Lodge and their projects. The Recreation and Parks Department extends a sincere thank you to everyone involved in this great event and hope to scare you there! For sponsorship opportunities, contact
