Drop into The Twilight Zone

Hold on tight for a thrilling journey into another realm of sight and sound you’re sure to never forget.

A Grand Re-Opening
Explore the notorious Hollywood Tower Hotel, the onetime haunt of Tinseltown’s rich and famous until a mysterious event forced it to close. Edge past the wrought-iron gates of the abandoned abode and wind through a neglected, weed-filled garden before stepping inside a dilapidated lobby, seemingly frozen in time.

Make your way into a cozy library and behold curious artifacts from around the globe. As lightning ignites the darkened room, a nearby television set springs to life and Rod Serling welcomes you on a journey into the Twilight Zone.

From a secret passage, trudge into the shadowy confines of a dilapidated boiler room, where your vessel into the 5th dimension awaits. Enter the dusty service elevator and strap yourself in, light bulbs flickering on and off above you.

Going Up?
Seated in the lift, launch upward though the hotel in darkness as the voice of Rod Serling echoes all around you. Suddenly, the corroded doors spring open to reveal a lengthy hallway inhabited by the otherworldly hotel inhabitants from 1939 beckoning for you to join them. But your skyward journey has just begun.

Going Down!
Squeal in terror as your elevator freefalls down the abandoned shaft then unexpectedly changes direction and hurtles back up the hotel. Gaze out through a missing wall 13 stories high as the doors inexplicably open and close to reveal the hotel grounds. As if possessed by some unseen phantom, the lift plummets down and speeds upward over and over again, the sound of cables snapping and metal clanging overhead.

Will you make it back to the real world… or will you become a permanent resident of the Twilight Zone?

The Mystery of the Hollywood Tower Hotel

One stormy Halloween night in 1939, 5 unlucky souls mysteriously disappeared from the Hollywood Tower Hotel’s doomed elevator.

Classic stars of the silver screen sought rest and relaxation at the Hollywood Tower Hotel during the Golden Age of Hollywood. In 1939, during a gloomy Halloween night, 5 unfortunate hotel patrons were riding in the elevator when a violent storm struck the building… and they were never seen again. Wherever they may have gone or whatever became of them has remained a mystery to this day. The hotel closed down that night and has remained abandoned ever since.

The Present Day
You’re invited to take a tour of the Hollywood Tower Hotel and ride in one of the only working elevators to unravel the mystery.
