Many theme parks have drop rides, but there is something different about The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It does not go up and then drop you just once. Instead, you will drop 13 stories in a random sequence over and over. You’ll be on your way up, then suddenly you’ll drop again. You won’t know what to expect, because each ride is different.
The theme and the back story are part of what make Tower of Terror so special. The story goes that on October 31, 1939, a group of five entered the elevator of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. There was a storm, and the riders were never seen again. The story is told by the late Rod Sterling. It’s done flawlessly, which is amazing considering that the film for the story was pieced together using clips of Sterling in episodes of The Twilight Zone. After you learn the story, you’ll board the elevator yourself. That’s when the thrill begins.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror has a height requirement of 40 inches or taller. Read the warnings if you have a medical condition, and it is not recommended for expectant mothers. If you are prone to motion sickness, you might want to skip it.
