Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Published: March 15, 2014
The story takes place in the Hollywood Tower Hotel, an "Old Hollywood" resort from the late 1930's. Bellhops greet you and direct you to wait in the library. Inside the small room, the lights go out, and an old, black-and-white television turns on to welcome you into an episode of The Twilight Zone. When the bellhops return, they're not taking you up to your room, but down into the boiler room, where you'll board a service elevator for ride of your life. This elaborately themed drop ride offers multiple drop sequences, so you'll probably not get the same ride twice. Note that Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling really does appear in the pre-show film, thanks to clever editing from Disney's Imagineers, who used clips from dozens of Twilight Zone show introductions to splice together the ride's pre-show introduction.Tweet
Hands down THE BEST attraction on WDW property. The theme and story are the perfect fit in what was once my favorite park at WDW. It creates a fantastic mood to the ride experience and the thrill of the drops are surprising and absolutely FUN!
Such a great ride! I love how it's never the same back to back. Just a fun drop and the whole setup is really cool. Love me some Tower of Terror!!
Everything you could want in an indoor, themed thrill ride. The experience is chilling, the decor fabulous, and the ride itself keeps you guessing. 9/10
9/10. Probably the second most thrilling ride on Disney property next to Rock n Roller coaster. A must for thrill seekers.
10/10 no doubt. One of my all time favorites
Outstanding attraction. The Twilight Zone setting is tremendous and the feeling of floating in the air on the elevator, if you don't hold on, is excellent. One of the top ten attractions in Disney.
This Disney World icon is one of the best rides in Orlando. The theming is truly immersive and the story from the queue, to the cast members, and on to the ride itself is imperative to the ride's success and done right. A fun ride and the drops are just way cool. Even the view from the top, though quick, is spectacular. A true classic, and a definite must see.
This is similar to the one in California, although the ups and downs seemed shorter than the California version. I could have done without the wandering elevator however.
Everyone's already said it, but this ride is easily the best around. It is so much more than simply a drop tower, with the theming and the technology at its disposal. Especially not that you cannot predict which way you will go first, it's simply perfection. 10/10.
