The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Review

by Zanstabar, 1 week ago
It's hard to view this ride as anything other than almost perfect. The queue is phenomenal, the ride system is efficient, the story is encapsulating and the theming is immersive and believable. It's an amazing experience every time.

Review Criteria

Great

Enjoyment

It's almost criminal how enjoyable this attraction is.
Good

Effectiveness

High

Intensity

A randomised sequence of sharp, short drops and minimal time to catch your breath. There's nothing more intense than not knowing which way you will go next.
Average

Rider Comfort

The system is generally smooth all round, however sometimes you can hit your seat just a little too hard on some of the drops.
Great

Pacing

Great

Theming/Storyline

The Hollywood Tower Hotel is easily one of the best themed attractions out there. There's a reason that this attraction is generally considered a "New Classic"
Great

Upkeep/Presentation

The attraction looks horrifically damaged and worn out. That's great, considering it's all a part of the show and goes on without a hitch.
Great

Queue/Efficiency

It's a major E-Ticket attraction and currently the icon for the park, yet it had posted 10-20 minute waits all day.
Great

Special Effects

There's no better moment than seeing first-time riders being absolutely spell-bound by the effects.
