Thought this was going to be a thread about a Spanish Tower of Terror!

We have a tower of terror that elevators?

In other news,

¿No había en algún momento un pre-show torre del terror? ¿O era sólo por un lanzamiento para los medios? Sé que he preguntado esto antes, pero no puedo recordar la respuesta. Me pareció ver en algún lugar de un par de trajes y personajes que serían "evacuados" a caminar a través. Tal vez me estoy inventando esto, no estoy seguro.

My favourite is how Joz answers exactly what they were then someone else posts a wrong answer from a vague memory they aren't sure about :P

A satellite image, by definition, would mean it was visible from, well, a satellite.

Given TOT never operated without a roof, I believe a satellite image of when TOT opened, if such an image exists (google maps and nearmap weren't around then) would provide zero use.

Unless the so called elevators are part of the theming in TOT, but if they were actual elevators they could be for the disabled guests at the park. But which really depends where you are taking the photograph from.

If disabled guests were to ride, they wouldn't use the old load elevators - for starters - there are a bunch of stairs before you get to that point in the queue... so if a wheelchair or the like was needed, i'm sure they'd just take the guest through the exit door.

I remember riding the elevator into the sovernier shop from the ride exit. This was before tot2. So things must have changed.

The elevator was for exiting the ride, and a ramp was at the entrance.

The exit elevator is still there, however there used to be a set of two elevators at the entrance where the second set of stairs are (see the image at the beginning of the thread)

For those wondering how it worked you would queue as per normal until you reached the black/white wall room or the end of the narrow section after (near the base of the stairs). The queue would end and you would be grouped and board the elevators, go up to what is now the purple room where you would exit the elevators and a short wait to board the ride. The stairs have basically removed the need for an additional operator for the elevator and two elevators to maintain.
