The Best Things I Love About Disney Is… The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

There are three things that are important to me on a Disney attraction, 1-Theme, 2-Back Story, and 3-the WOW! factor of the Ride itself. Most of the ride attractions at Walt Disney World have at least one or two of these and many have all three but one embodies all of them better than any of the others – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

From the time you enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios the sheer size and scope of the attraction grab you and draw you in. As you walk down Sunset Boulevard it just becomes more and more imposing. It just gets better as you enter the grounds of the attraction with the landscaping, nooks, little statues and the weathered look of everything there. The lobby is spectacular in its shabbiness and dustiness, and the little details (many from old Twilight Zone episodes) are extraordinary. You get a little uneasy as you enter the basement area, particularly when you see the rickety old generator shooting sparks and realize that’s what powers your elevator (not really). Then there’s Rod Serling’s briefing (where you learn the back story) and your “friendly” elevator operator. Fun fact – if your operator has Gold Epaulets on his/her, costume he/she is an original cast member there since the attraction’s opening day.

The ride itself is a real WOW! and I won’t ruin here for you. I’ll just say it’s fun, surprising, and just a little bit intense. Have a great ride.
