The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror


Travel to the height of fright in a haunted freight elevator for a gut-wrenching, faster-than-gravity free fall. Then rocket back to the top of the shaft and do it again and again!

"Fear Every Drop!"

Those guests brave enough to 'check-in' to the early 20th century hotel will enter through the elegant, yet dusty lobby and head towards the library. Once inside, the doors close behind you and a sudden burst of lightning covers the room in darkness. A tv in the corner flickers to life and the mysterious story about a family of former guests who came to their demise when the lift they were traveling in was struck by lightning and plummeted to the ground. The bodies however, were never found and its said the family still roam the hotel. You will then be invited to enter the fifth dimension, to learn the secret of that fateful night by boarding the one and only elevator still operational.
Upon leaving the library, you enter the hotel's boiler room in the basement. Winding through he boiler room in a second queue until you reach the elevator.
Your elevator will be taken on a gradual ascension whereby you'll encounter a series of supernatural and out-of-the-ordinary events, heightening the tension. Finally, having reached a height of 13 stories up, a door opens in front of you allowing a brief glimpse of the outside world  before you head rapidly groundwards in a random series of drops and rises.

The attraction is the centerpiece of the new Hollywood Boulevard coming to Walt Disney Studios Park.
