The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris is the fourth and newest of Disney’s beloved elevator drop tower thrill rides. The original opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (then Disney-MGM Studios) in 1994, based on the iconic sci-fi horror show “The Twilight Zone.”
On the attraction, guests step into a glitzy Golden Age hotel, The Hollywood Tower Hotel, abandoned in 1939 after an actor, a singer, a child star, her nanny, and a hotel bellhop vanished from the elevator, along with an entire wing of the building, during a lightning strike. Legend says these five were transported to The Twilight Zone. Now with the help of iconic host Rod Serling, you can step into an episode of the iconic series yourself to find out what really happened that fateful night.
The version in Paris is a clone of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror built at Disney’s California Adventure in 2004 (later Disney California Adventure). That version closed in 2017 to become Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT, featuring the characters from the iconic Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy. In that ride, guests visit an exhibition held by The Collector from the first film, ready to show off his latest acquisition — the Guardians of the Galaxy. But one of them, Rocket, escapes, and he enlists the help of guests visiting to help bust his friends out and escape the museum.
Meanwhile at Tokyo DisneySea, guests experience a completely original story fitting to its home in American Waterfront. This version opened in 2006 and tells the story of eccentric collector Harrison Hightower III, who traveled the world pilfering artifacts from cultures and societies to display at his New York City hotel. After an expedition to Africa, he brings home a cursed idol of death, Shiriki Utundu, whose curse he mocks by burning a hole in the statue’s head with his cigar. On the evening of December 31, 1899, he starts to bring the idol up to his private penthouse, when the idol comes alive, drops the elevator, and causes Hightower to disappear without a trace. Now guests are invited to a tour from the New York City Preservation Society, making a case to preserve the abandoned hotel rather than see it demolished. But the curse of Shiriki Utundu still looms over the hotel.
