Attention to Detail: Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror opened 19 years ago today.


There's a lot to love about this attraction.

I love the winding outdoor queue...






I love the hotel backdrop, and the Hollywood glam setting...





 I love the Twilight Zone theme...


                
I love the elaborate backstory, and the keen attention to detail...




I love the creepy imagery...




But...I hate big drops.

I knew I had to do Tower of Terror at least once; I mean, how could I not, right? I did manage to put it off for a long time, until my most recent visit. But then I did it. I finally did it.

I loved every inch of the attraction...up until that first drop.

I'm glad I experienced it- but if I go in again, I will likely be using the chicken exit.


(Did you know there's a chicken exit? Just about every attraction has one...)

  1. I'm so excited that you posted these pictures because I have never been on it in my twenty-something Disney trips! I know, I know! But the big drops always give me migraines, and it never seemed worth ruining the rest of my day. But now I know what it looks like on the inside so I'm excited! Also, I totally love the movie they made about it in the 90s with Kirsten Dunst. It was one of my Halloween favorites as a kid.

    1. Next time- go through the queue- it's totally worth it! You can tell the CM prior to getting on the elevator that you're not going on- they'll point you to the chicken exit...

  4. Tower of Terror is my absolute favorite attraction! I love everything about it, from the background music to the fact that they "dust" the attraction to make it look abandoned. And of course, I love the ride itself! The first time I went on it, I almost took the chicken exit though. I'm sure glad I didn't!
