Modeled after the popular television show, The Twilight Zone, this thrill ride takes guest in an "elevator" to the top of the tower before they are dropped at high speeds. This ride is definitely not for kids scared of dark or fast rides.
Minimum height: 40"
The Tower of Terror is a ride located in Los Angeles, California Disneyland the ride is similar to the show aired in the 1980's I think the Twilight zone. The Tower of Terror is elevator that has a mind of its own, it is a mysterious elevator people go on to ride it drops a few stories down then comes back up and down a few times it is very scary if you are lighter because you fly up an inch on your seat then come back down that is scary. Oh and if you were a hat for an example as a baseball cap it could fly off during the ride so you might want to take it off before entering the elevator.
I loved the thrills and the drops in this new (to me) ride at CA Adventure. We had FastPass and were glad to bypass the rest of the line, but I experienced a bit of disappointment at not getting to see all the details of the queue itself. That tells you what a great job that Disney does for it's rides!
The kids that went with us... ages 7-12 all mostly liked it, except for my nephew who felt like fainting and throwing up right before we lined up for the elevator (my bro-in-law was able to take him out through the emergency exit), and my 11 year old son who bawled his eyes out during the ride (hopefully he'll recover!) It wasn't so much the scary darkness or spooky-ness, because I think he could really tell it was all pretend and on a TV show (he learned how the hotel got struck by lightning) but he just hated the falling and drops of the ride.
We met a guy who held out his hat on his lap during the ride and he said that it touched the roof at one point. That would be fun to try next time! My father-in-law said his phone leaped out of his shirt pocket... not a good thing to try next time!
Tip: Search for as many "HTH" as you can find while waiting in the line. Make it a fun competition!
This is by far the most thrilling ride at DCA. The mixture of the awesome sets and creepy atmosphere add to the drama as you drop down an elevator shaft.
This ride, even the wait in line, is not for the faint of heart as it is quite thrilling (and quite fun!!).
There is a fastpass for this ride, but you still have to wait a good 15 minutes from the point you meet up with the rest of the line so plan accordingly.
