Presentation of the attraction

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is one of Walt Disney Studios’ most iconic attractions. Based on the classic American TV series “The Twilight Zone”, this attraction combines a fascinating story with thrills to offer a truly unique experience.

From the moment they enter the Hollywood Tower Hotel, visitors are immersed in a mysterious 1930s atmosphere, created by meticulous detail and atmospheric music. The story begins with the mysterious disappearance of five people in an elevator on a stormy night. Visitors are then invited to board the service elevator for their own journey into the Twilight Zone.

What follows is a series of steep ascents and falls in total darkness, accompanied by various special effects and video sequences to intensify the experience. The free fall from the elevator is one of the attraction’s most exhilarating moments, offering visitors a sensation of weightlessness for a fraction of a second before a rapid fall.
