About The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™

When you enter the Hollywood Tower Hotel you’ll immediately feel like you have stepped back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood, except for one thing…the hotel is now eerily deserted. The lobby is covered with lovely antiques, some of them genuine, with oldies by Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and the like playing in the background.

From the lobby, guests will move into the library. You’ll have a few moments to look around before the door closes and lights go out. Take this time to check out some really cool props from Twilight Zone episodes. The television will turn on and Rod Serling will tell the story of the Hollywood Tower Hotel in its heyday and the fateful night when 5 unlucky souls were riding the maintenance elevator when a violent storm struck the building.

When the lights come back on and doors open, you’ll move to the boiler room of the hotel where you’ll board a 1917 service elevator. The elevator doors close and the fun begins…into The Twilight Zone. While traveling through The Twlight Zone, you'll encounter the souls stuck in this strange mix of space and time. Then, you'll take a drop into the unknown!

The “thrill” part of the ride takes you through a series of ups and downs that are randomly selected by a computer so you’ll never know which version of the ride you’re about to experience. 

Unless the park is particularly crowded, the stand-by line for this attraction is reasonably short. You should have plenty of time do this one several times in one day. The shortest lines are early in the morning and later in the afternoon and evening. Grab a FASTPASS if you want to ride in the middle part of the day. This ride isn’t too bad for people who experience motion sickness, but it’s best not to do this one after a meal.

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 and sometimes we ride this one over and over again. Try it at night for a different view of the park.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is located at the very end of Sunset Boulevard and lasts about 8 minutes. Seats on the “elevator” have individual lap seat belts. Guests must transfer from motorized scooter or ECV to an available wheelchair, then from the wheelchair to the attraction/ride vehicle.

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.
