Best Best best freefall themed ride ever I have never been on this ride befor until my recent Florida vacation but omg it was off the hinges I loved the theming and the way the elevator goes up really fast and then yanks u back down unexpectedly and stuff and how it mostly was in the dar created a whole new felling to the free fall efect so i have to say ya it was awsome!

Its probably the only few attractions worth the wait at Disney World. However I like the older version where it had less drops but bigger and longer. I dont really care aobut the random drops thing cause it breaks up the long huge drops to many small drops. And there used to be a metal bar on your seat and right now they are replaced by seat belt. The bar will make you a little bit looser so you get more thrilling feeling. That is why is cannot get a ten.

This ride got a 10 from me even though for a small incident. We had just entered into the drop shaft to be sent into "THE TWILIGHT ZONE!" when a loud buzzer sounds. That is obviously never good to hear. Than a voice comes over the intercom. "Uh, could you please let go of the slack on your seatbelts?" Some guy in front of me had pulled the entire belt out. Well as soon as he let go.. The ride started. But that isnt what made me very mad. I didnt like being dropped over and over again. But, I that this is part of the point of the ride. The guy I was speaking of earlier should have never gotten on the ride. I was review ing this ride, but my power went out before I could finish. This was one of the bestdrop rides I have ever been on. Especially since every drop is different.

This is truly Disneys crowning achievement in all of their theme parks. Never have I experienced a ride in which the theming, atmosphere, and storyline have been executed so perfectly. From the creepy and unkempt gardens to the cracked and crumbling walls to the dusty and abandoned lobby you cant help but feel immersed in the Twilight Zone. All of this is capped off by a thrilling "freefall" attraction thrilling enough for any grizled theme park veteren. Perfection in a theme park ride is possible, you just have to venture into the Twilight Zone to experience it.

I have never been on a ride that is this scary, Ill just say that up front. The theming is top notch, it is a true Disney classic. I was surprised that mor of the line didnt take place inside, most of it took place in the deserted gardens. The gardens were very well done, they looked unkept and mysterious and set a good atmosphere for the upcoming ride. The line enters the lobby, which hasnt been visited in years. This is where I think there could haave been another room, but no matter. From the lobby comes the Library, where the pre-show takes place.I thought the pre-show was excellent. The library scene really put my nerves on high. The set-up of one small tv in the corner of a dark room made the situation seem extremely real, almost like you had stumbled upon this hotel by yourself. Once in the boiler room, I was scared out of my mind. As some of you know, Im afraid of heights, so drop rides really make me nervous. I dont ride S&S towers because I dont like how open they are, but I felt the enclosed shaft would help because I really like the free-fall sensation. Once we were all loaded into our car, we began our quick ascent to the first scene. I thought the ghost scene was good, but not as good as the next floor. On the next floor the car comes out of the shaft and goes through a Twilight Zone scene with great special effects. Once we got into the next shaft I knew there was only one thing left to do. I cant remember if we dropped or launched first, because the rest of the ride was just a blur. What makes this ride so scary is the random ride sequence. I really under-estimated how scary random drops and launches could get. The heights werent the scary part of this ride for me at all. There was no way to prepare yourself for what was coming next, when a drop is expected a launch would come out of nowhere. The directional changes of this monster were insane, and proved great airtime. It felt like I dropped up and down that shaft 20 times before we finally stopped. I really cant stress how intense the random ride sequence was and how much it added to the ride. I give this ride a 10, I am proud of Disney for having the guts to build an extreme thrill ride, and I am even prouder of Disney for having the nerve to make it even scarier instead of taming it down. Nice job Disney, I dont think I have ever gotten that many moments of extreme airtime on ANY ride.

Brilliant and mind sweeping! This is a must ride. The theming of the outside and inside really makes you feel like youre in a deserted 1900s hotel. The storyline is great, and they did the Rod Serling act perfect. The ride it self is amazing. I love the new version of it (4) because every ride is picked at random. And if the looks of the building intimidate you, have nothing to fear. A true fact is, the motors that run the elevator shafts are 2 times as strong as the ones that were in the Twin Towers.(that is REALLY strong!)
Small kids would most likely NOT like this ride.

Wow... I was looking through my profile and I found a little hole in my reviews. I cant belive I missed this one!... Before I start, however, this review is from my mind when I was about 5 years old... so I really dont remember much. All I remember is the scenery going into the ride itself which was awesome... like walking through a muddy basement or something. Also, I remember the ghostly figures telling me to come closer or something... I was freaking out by then haha. Then I remember something that haunted me for a couple of years... "now entering the deepest, darkest mansion: the twilight zone "WHOOOOSH... shoots down like a bullet. By this time I was laughing and having an awesome time... WHOOOSH... shoots you up. The window opens and it looks like youre about to fall out! Its quite awesome. You do that two more times and then the ride ends. I really enjoyed it, and Im hoping to get back to Disney soon so I can replenish these vague memories.

I think its one of the best rides/shows at MGM. The video at the beginnning can get annoying though especially when the line is non-existant.

Probably one of disneys best rides. I love this ride. There are many things about this ride that make it so great. The first part that is great, is the landscaping. The fact that the line is themed exactly like an old hotel is wonderful. The waiting room is beautiful. The themeing of the ride once you are is great fun. The drops are great, and adding a new drop each time is wonderful. All out great ride!

Disney has combined their stellar theming with an intense ride to create a sheer masterpiece. As you walk to the elevator, you’ll notice stunning detail inside of the hotel (cobwebs on a lamp, old newspapers on tables). This theming makes the ride seem a lot scarier than a standard drop ride should be. Once you are strapped in to your elevator cart and the doors slam shut, you realize that there’s no way out. The anticipation builds as the elevator rises up and moves forward. Your pulse rises as you wait to suddenly drop. Once that happens, you get some great airtime because you are only kept in your seat by a single lapbar. After riding an S&S Tower I realize how wonderful it is not to have your airtime obstructed by OTSRs (as previous reviewers have stated). You’re not sure how high you really are as you rise and fall at unexpected intervals. The Tower of Terror is one of the best attractions available to ride in the entire Disney World complex.
