Walt Disney Studio's Tower Of Terror preview!

Postby Simba » Sat Dec 08, 2007 8:50 pm

Today was the first day of preview for annual passes owner.

I haven't tested any of the other towers so I can't compare but this was really great. For those of you who have already rode the Californian version this is the exact same copy so I think it must feel the same. This is a really great addition to the park in which there was an obvious lack of rides and thrills.

Since you guys already know what it is no need to do a long speech, photos are more meaningful...

I hope you like the pics!

Very nice pictures!

Looks exactly the same as the one in DCA. I really wish they would tone down the theatrical lighting in the boiler room, looks way too cartoonish.


Dose this version still have the lame exit hallway?

Yeah this is the exact copy of the Californian Tower so it's the same exit.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Nice... Seems there has been a lot of upgrade at Walt Disney Studio. It has been about 3 years since I have been there.

I agreed with Simba about the lighting in the bolier room. Just a tad bit will do the job and not so carny like. This is a tower of terror! Not a carnival!

After viewing Shiki Tutu or whatever its name from Japan Tower of Terror, I think it would be kinda cool to twist the story at WDS as well... Just for a change... since they change the color of the building so it won't hurt... because it is just an upgrade.

It's the same as DCA's, but the WDS one has a garden in front so I give theres a slight edge.

I went ahead and uploaded the photos to the TPR server so that I can put your update on the front page!

I hope this is ok.

Very nice pictures!

Although TOT Paris is virtually an exact clone of the DCA TOT, I think the architecture of the tower suits the rest of the park very nicely. It would look weird if we had another TDS tower in this park because it would look completely out of place. The theming inside seems a bit cartoonish though compared to Florida's version or TDS's version. Is the California version also like this? I haven't been to this park in ages and my last visit wasn't exactly fun due to the lack of attractions. Nevertheless, with the addition of Toon Studios and Tower of Terror, this park might actually be worth visiting now!

A POV of the ride can be found here. Its exactly the same as DCA, the only difference is the show scenes are taken at a slightly slower pace.

Hmm, tis very much California's version...

Not that that's a bad thing anyways, still an enjoyable ride regardless of the no forward motion and infamous exit hallway... :roll:

Better sort out that trip for after college then... Specially with Crush there now as well...

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Thanks for sharing the photos, they're really good.

Hey, would it be possible to link us to a wallpaper-sized version of the hallway/ghost shot?? I'd love to use that on this computer. 1152x864 maybe so anyone below that could resize it? Or whatever you can do.
