If you’re into the chills and thrills of Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, look no further than the version at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris. New for the Halloween season are randomized drop sequences, plus new storylines, sound, and visual effects, dropping in on September 28th.

It is already one of the favorite attractions of guests visiting the Walt Disney Studios Park. However, with the opening of the new Halloween season, the famous Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, inspired by the Twilight Zone universe, will offer a new, permanent experience for thrill seekers, for even more surprises and thrills!

Not just a new experience… but several!

Once past the familiar corridors of the hotel, plunging directly into the disturbing atmosphere of a Twilight Zone episode, guests of the Hollywood Tower Hotel will embark in one of the elevator shafts … to live new stories, embellished with updated sound and visual effects, all punctuated by new and more impressive drop sequences than ever before! These alternative scenarios will “drop” the guests into the heart of the story, and will feature an iconic character already present in the attraction.

With several experiences and an even more immersive story, the attraction will attract longtime fans who will rediscover it, as well as a new generation of guests. “At Disneyland Paris, we regularly want to reinvent the guest experience to continue to surprise them and bring them new thrills and emotions. We look forward to unveiling the new drop sequences and effects at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which will create memorable and terrifying memories for guests of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, “said Bjorn Heerwagen, Show Design & Production Director for Walt Disney Imagineering.

Drop in if you dare, on September 28!

Will this be permanent? I sure hope so!


Is there any word yet on if this upgrade will cause TOT to be closed for refurbishments?


I thought the ride already had randomized drop sequences? Did they make it even more random or was I just misinformed? I’ve gone on it several times this past year so I should know how it functions lol

Edit: Nevermind, just realized this is Paris. I feel dumb now.


Is this at Disneyland Paris or all WDW parks that have the ride? The article was confusing on that point as it mentioned WDW Parks and Disneyland Paris…..
