The Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL) celebrates Halloween with Spooky Fest. This family friendly event will take place 7 days in October (see below for dates) from 6:30pm- 9:30pm at the Tanglewood Preserve in Rockville Centre, Long Island. Sixteen acres is transformed into a family friendly, Halloween event.

Wooded paths, exhibits, and festivities on the preserve will be featured, with eerie lighting, special effects, and characters along the way. Everything is perfectly spooky and a little scary. Creatures of all kinds inhabit the woods, the strange and beautiful will draw you into the eerie paths!

Scary Walk – The Woods are Haunted
This Spooky Walk is “very scary”. This quarter mile hike through the woods will leave kids clinging to their parents legs. Every October the abandoned cemetery in the woods comes to life and a group of hikers have entered the woods against our caution and have not returned. We need you to go in and find them, or what’s left of them.The walk features an abandoned cemetery where zombies come to life and are in search of their favorite food, BRAINS! Located on Long Island, this Spooky Walk is a Nassau County favorite.

The Maze of Zombies:
Enter the Maze of Zombies if you dare! The zombies and freaks lurking in the shadows thirst for blood and feed on the brains of the living. This terrifying haunt will leave you screaming for your life and clawing at the walls for an exit. There is only one way out without becoming a zombie yourself. Once bitten there is no return to the living. Email Haunt Owner
Not-So-Spooky Walk:
The Not-So-Spooky is “not at all spooky”. This walk through the woods is a colorfully lit Halloween story where children meet friendly Halloween characters. Butterflies, friendly ghosts, happy scarecrows , and many other displays await young children. Bring a camera because there are opportunities along this trail to take a family photo among the displays.

Review This Haunt
  • Great price for a great scare!

    Was a great time with the whole family. Had things for all ages to do, and was close to home. Delicious fair food to fill the sweet tooth also. Entertaining and lengthy spooky trail and corn maze.

  • Email Verified Wonderful Halloween Festival

    I was a volunteer at Spooky Fest this past weekend and I had a blast! The staff and volunteers put 110% into making the night fun (and scary!) for everyone that attended. There were a ton of activities to partake in and the decorations and atmosphere were perfect.

  • Email Verified Tanglewood Preserve Spookyfest!

    Our second year attending and we love it! I've tried to spread the word to my friends because it's that wonderful! We entered the Non-Spooky side for my 2 & 1/2 year old and he loved it. There's so much to do and it's so unique!

    I'm not big on Halloween, but decided to take the kids to this event. My 9 year old was sure she would be doing the scary walk through the woods, but as we were walking towards SpookyFest and she heard the chainsaw revving and the people screaming, she quickly changed her mind and we all did the non-scary walk through the woods! Lol! Everything was so nicely decorated and with 2 adults, 9 year old, 2 year old and baby...there was something for everyone! The kids enjoyed the arts and crafts, the game show, the live animals, fortune teller, food, face painting and music! The live DJ was awesome and big and small alike were partying having a great time! We will definitely be back next year and we are doing the spooky stuff!

  • Terrific Value!

    The best spooky halloween outing ever! The actors are very enthusiastic. You start out feeling vulnerable since you are actually walking through a dark forest. All the rest is just icing on the cake. I would not go alone! LOL. The fortune telling booth is fun and the maze of madness will drive you mad. Good thing that the monsters will eventually help you figure out how to make it through.

  • Great scary fun!

    The line was long but moved pretty quickly. The spooky walk was just right for our 9 year olds. Not over the top scary, but not lame at all. It's just scary enough! Will do it again in 2012!

  • Great Event

    The lines were long but well worth the wait. The displays were very well done. the actors were professional, and the displays followed a theme that got us interacting with the haunt. Awesome.
