Did you know that the Tower of Terror at the Hollywood Tower Hotel is the tallest attraction at DCA and one of the tallest buildings in Anaheim at 199 ft? The Tower of Terror is one of those amazing rides that takes you on a virtual free fall, then brings you up just to drop you again. It's so fun! I love that the castmates are part of the storyline. This ride has the fastpass feature which is great to utilize on a busy day. I once rode California Screamin' and Tower of Terror twice in one day, just going back and forth and using the fastpass for the second rides. Downright, fun if you ask me. Buckle-up and enjoy!

One of my favorite rides at the Disneyland Resort. Disney doesn't do a lot of 'scary' rides, and this is about as scary as they get (which is not very scary). If you like free fall, this is the ride for you!
Along with the ride, you even get a story...from the Twilight Zone!

Not as good as the Florida version but the drops are just as thrilling!
In the Disneyland version, the elevator goes backwards a few feet and then you go up and go through the drop sequence.
In the Florida version, the elevator goes up and then moves forward through several mystifying scenes before finally going through the drop sequence.
The Florida version has much better theming and the ride is slightly longer, but it breaks down more often and loading/unloading takes forever because there are only 3 loading/unloading stations.
The Disneyland version has less theming and the ride is much shorter, however, loading/unloading is much quicker because there are 6 loading/unloading stations (2 floors with 3 loading/unloading stations each).
The drop sequences at both Parks are the same length and equally terrifying so it's a toss up for me!

One of the best rides at Disneyland and CA Adventure!
u go up, see the story and then go up some more before you yo yo once or twice and then the ride is over. Compared to the Florida one, this is done pretty quick.

This is one of my favorite rides at California Adventure. Set up as a 1930's hotel, you have a lot to decipher as you stand in line. How many references to the Twilight Zone can you spot in the decor and artifacts? There are many hidden messages for those who pay attention. Every detail can be a clue.

It is 1939, and you are in a beautiful hotel. However, something seems amiss... everything looks abandoned, as though the guests have just vanished into thin air. Thick dust has settled on the furniture in the dimly lit hotel lobby, and that is when you realize that it's not 1939; as a matter of fact, it's present day, and you are about to go up to the 13th floor... the Twilight Zone. Board if you dare.
IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE THE FEELING OF YOUR STOMACH CHURNING, DO NOT RIDE THE TOWER OF TERROR! THAT IS A WARNING!
Quite unfortunately, I am one of those aforementioned types. I cannot ride this attraction due to motion sickness and a fear of elevators (seriously). As a matter of fact, I am 99% sure that my fear of elevators originated from the fact that I rode the Tower of Terror at Walt Disney World when I was 10-years-old; since then, I have recurring nightmares about elevators falling. Scary!
However, I've been on this ride once since its opening here in Anaheim, and it is probably the best themed ride in all of California Adventure. The attention to detail is absolutely fantastic, and you can't shake that eerie feeling that clouds over you while waiting in the queue. If you can handle that dropping sensation, get your ass on this ride! I desperately wish I could go on, but I guess it's just not in the cards for me.
