The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™

Join thrill-seekers at the mysterious Hollywood Tower Hotel for the ultimate adrenaline rush. For the longest 2 minutes of your life, rise and fall at terrifying speeds in the hotel's haunted elevator, again and again!

The Haunted Hotel

Cross the decrepit grounds of the once-elegant Hollywood Tower Hotel and wind your way into the abandoned lobby. Time has stood still since the night of October 31, 1939 when lightning mysteriously struck the tower, plunging 5 unfortunate elevator occupants into oblivion.

After passing through the dilapidated lobby, enter the creepy library, where the television plays a "lost" episode of The Twilight Zone. Rod Serling invites you to enter the elevator and discover the secret of the unfortunate 5's disappearance.

Do you dare?

The Service Elevator

Continue to the sinister boiler room, where the hotel bellhops encourage you a bit too cheerfully to strap yourself into one of the seats in the rickety service elevator. Rise up floor after floor in darkness as the elevator occasionally stops to provide a ghastly glimpse of those who disappeared that frightful night. The elevator stops at a vestibule in front of a large, ornate mirror, in which you can catch your reflection as Rod Serling speaks:

"Wave goodbye to the real world!"

Touches from The Twilight Zone

Throughout the attraction, you can find props from episodes of the original version of television's classic series, The Twilight Zone. These include:

  • A pair of broken spectacles from "Time Enough at Last" — a near-sighted bookworm is the sole survivor of a devastating war.
  • The broken stopwatch from "A Kind of a Stopwatch" — this is the stopwatch that can actually stop time!
  • A toy telephone from the episode "Long Distance Call" — 5-year-old Billy Bayles uses his toy telephone to talk to his dead grandmother.
  • The electric razor from the episode "A Thing About Machines" — a man's razor rises up like a snake and pursues him.
  • An antique radio from the episode "Static" — an old radio tunes in programs from the past.

And many more!

Your Earthly Belongings

You will want to either store your loose belongings — such as hats, glasses and purses — in a pack that you can hold on the ride or hand them to a friend or family member who is not boarding the attraction so that you can fully enjoy the experience.

Decide Not to Ride?

If you find the Hollywood Tower Hotel too frightening and decide you would rather not board the elevator, just notify one of the bellhops of your intentions. You can exit the attraction or wait there for your party to return.
