The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Face your fears and plunge 13 unlucky floors into the Twilight Zone amid the faded glamour of this haunted hotel.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: A Grand Re-Opening
Tour the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel, the one-time haunt of Tinseltown's rich and famous until a mysterious incident forced it to close in 1939. At The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, venture under the iron-wrought iron gates of the abandoned abode and step inside a dusty lobby, seemingly frozen in time.
Edge into a dark library with strange artifacts. As lightning illuminates 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 the dilapidated boiler room, home to rattling machinery and your vessel into the 5th dimension: the service elevator. Enter the rickety lift and strap yourself in, light bulbs spookily flickering on and off above you.
Seated in the elevator, launch upward in darkness until the corroded doors unlock to expose a lengthy hallway inhabited by the otherworldly hotel inhabitants from 1939. Beckoning for you to join them, the spooky spectres dematerialise and your skyward journey continues.
First Stop, the Looking Glass
As you ascend the 13 floors, your elevator shudders to a halt and the doors creakily part. You can clearly see your reflection in the ornate mirror that sits across the hallway. But then, following a flash of lightning and some ghostly goings on, your reflection eerily fades, leaving an elevator containing not one living soul. Have you been transported to another dimension?
Shriek in terror as your elevator freefalls down the abandoned shaft then unexpectedly changes direction and launches 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?
