PHOTOS: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Gets a Brick-Chilling LEGO Makeover in New Model Concept Art

Tonight’s story on WDWNT is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction.

This, as you may recognize, is a LEGO model of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. We invite you, if you dare, to look around, because in tonight’s article, bricks are the star. And this model will take you directly to . . . The Twilight Zone.

Please forgive my ominous intro, but this concept art of a LEGO model of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is terrifyingly good!

Creator Victor Leparc recently posted the concept art on Facebook’s LEGO MOC Worldwide group, inspired by the beloved Disney’s Hollywood Studios attraction.

The incredibly detailed model features the Hollywood Tower Hotel in all its eerie glory, complete with its dense foliage around the building and the path guests travel to enter.
