As one of the tallest building in the entire resort, Tower of Terror brings new concept to the American Waterfront, which before this ride opened was empty and no major ride at all.

From the full-video I've seen, the queue line is so detailed. Much better than any other Tower of Terror. Especially the pre-show! There's no tv here, only some-kind-of-gramophone and the Shiriki Utundo. Then there's a window, which is actually kind of screen, tells the story what happened that night. Suddenly, the thunder roars again and the Shiriki Utundo laugh and disappear.

After that you take a walk to the "treasure" room of Hightower. You can see so many artefacts here, which isn't presented anywhere else, except here. Then you go to the elevator boarding room. The elevator here has capacity of 22 persons.

Once the elevator closes its door, the elevator moves backward and you can see the green eyes flashing in front of you. Then it goes up and stopped. Not like US version where the 5 ghosts appear, this time only Shiriki Utundo and Mr. Hightower in this room. The statue "cursing him" to the fifth dimension. Door closed and it goes up. Now, this one is similar to the DCA version. A mirror, which "send" you to the dimension. But there's another plus! Once your images disappear, the Shiriki Utundo appears and this time it curses you.

The elevator goes way to the top, where the door opened and you can see the view of Disney Resort. Then you fall about 2 floors and then way down. Once again it goes up to the close-to-the-top and then drops you down. The elevator stops and then goes forward to the exit door.

You can also buy your onride photo at the shop.
