The next few updates will cover the Tokyo Disneyland Resort. This place is so awesome that it's impossible to do it all in one update, so there will be several parts.

This part is DisneySea and mostly Tower of Terror since it was new since our last visit.

Now, I will say that Tokyo DisneySea's Tower is IMO, not the "best." The drop sequence is far weaker than California or Florida's and while there is some airtime, it is nowhere near as forcefull as the other two. And like the California version, the lack of the 5th dimension really does make it feel like it's "missing something."

Where the DisneySea version is freaking AMAZING is in it's theming and pre-shows.

It's just incredible. Some of the best story and effects I've ever seen for an attraction.

Those of you familar with the California and Florida versions know that the storyline is that you're in a maintenance service elevator that takes you to "The Twilight Zone." Since there is no Twilight Zone TV show in Japan, they needed a new story.

This story revolves around an exporer named "Hightower" and his evil little idol called "Shiriki Utundu." While not getting too much into the story, let's just say that when Hightower stumbled upon this would-be inanimate idol he got more than he bargined for, including his demise. And in the Hightower Hotel, the location of his museum and other works of his exploration, thanks to Shiriki, YOU ARE NEXT TO GO!

We've included a video on how one of the most amazing effects of the show is done, so if you don't want t know the spoilers, don't click on the video!!!

Finally, Tokyo Disney. I have been waiting for this. Thanks for posting it. I agree that the first pic does look like a model. Very weird. I look forward to the rest.

"You must respect Shiriki Utundu no matter who you are!" :devil:



I never thought I would actually miss being at a park, but I so miss being at Disney Sea! :cry:


Words (and pictures) can't express how AWESOME this place is.

Let me just say that the video doesn't even do that effect justice. It's just that cool.

The attention to detail even gets Jahan all hot and bothered.

I loved the Japanese people's reaction to the tower ride itself.

Considering this was their first (for the most of them I figured, riding this one) experience in a ToT, I thought they were having a blast and enjoying the fun of being "scared" by Disney, lol.

It was great fun ride, every time I was on it.
