"One word...AWESOME! It may seem like it would be scary for the little ones, but Tad, Lily and all their friends LOVE it. It's great for an energy boost, but it is best not to do this one right after lunch."

Tips & Fun Facts

At 199 feet tall, "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" is the highest attraction at the Walt Disney World® Resort.

So how is it that this attraction contains only 13 'floors'? Imagineers say it's because the place is full of so many 'tall stories.' Be sure to repeat the trip. The experience is completely new, completely random and never the same twice! To accurately capture the mood of the classic television series, Walt Disney Imagineers screened each of the 156 episodes of "The Twilight Zone" at least twice.

Restrictions - 40" or 1.02 meters minimum height

Duration - 13 minutes 40 seconds

Suitability - Indoor, Thrill Rides

Ages -  7 yrs & up, 12 yrs & up

Truly immersive, incredible. One of the best attractions of any theme park in the World. Please be careful when taking easily frightened kids on this attraction.

You could quite literally terrify them. We have even heard adults asking their kids to trust them when they say it is not scary. Next step, terrified kids who do not trust their parents for the rest of the day!

I went to The MGM Srudios this year in October, and some of my friends had told me about a ride called tower of terror, and naturally I thought yeah sure!! So we got to the park and I managed to find this tower of terror and thought 'doesn't look so bad'.

So I queued up and waited and went through the gates, and Was loaded into the lift........then it all went dark that's when we were taken through the twlight zone and that's when it happened. The worst feeling I have ever had.... I was dropped 13 stories in total darkness with nothing to hold too and only a thin stap holding me in.... I have never been so scared in my entire life!! Thanks Disney for scaring everything out of me!! I would give it 11 out of 10!!

went onto the Tower of terror this year, and I have never been so scared! When you drop, there is nothing to hold onto, and I thought I really was going to die! This ride is NOT for the faint hearted at all! Also, the detail that DISNEY had gone into with props, atmosphere, and scenery was amazing! We will be going back next year, and I may risk going on it again, if I dare............
