Fearless and thrill-seeking guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will absolutely love The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Towering at 199 feet, it’s very easy to find at the end of Sunset Boulevard. This attraction is based on the hit television series, The Twilight Zone®, which was created and hosted by the late Rod Serling. The television show featured unexpected endings to the storylines and that is exactly what riders will experience on this attraction.
Upon entering through the iron gates and walking through the unkept garden, guests will begin to get an eerie feeling. The lobby of the Hollywood Tower Hotel is full of antiques, cobwebs and disrepair. It seems that things are frozen in time. The queue leads into a creepy library where suddenly, lightning strikes and the lights go out! Out of nowhere, a television comes on and Rod Serling welcomes everyone to “Enter the Twilight Zone”.
From this point, the brave will be led through the perilous boiler room and into the 5th Dimension, the service elevator. After guests are seated and buckled in, they travel a long, mysterious hallway with ghostly images of former hotel “guests” and begin ascending. At the 13th floor, opening credits from the Twilight Zone are heard and a journey into the star-filled realm begins. Suddenly, the cable snaps and the elevator begins to free-fall down an abandoned shaft. Down it goes….then up again! Over and over, up and down, as the doors open and close—there seems to be no pattern to the madness! The views are incredible and frightening at the same time. Yet, it’s SO much fun!
Enter The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror…if you dare!
