I have a couple questions regarding Tower of Terror at DHS. It's one of my favorite rides but it has been a while since I last rode it. I know there are multiple elevator shafts, so does that mean there are multiple hallway and 5th dimension rooms within the tower I'm assuming? Also, what is the little ghost girl saying in the hallway scene? She's mumbling something but it's hard to understand.
My Top 5 Steel: 1. Maverick 2. The Incredible Hulk 3. Millennium Force 4. Dragon Challenge (Fireball) 5. Diamondback
My Top 5 Wood: 1. Outlaw Run 2. Goliath 3. The Beast 4. American Eagle (Red) 5. American Thunder

There are 4 shafts that take you up the the 5th dimension room. That room is a merge-point when the car moves forward, going from 4 paths merging into 2, which are the 2 drop shafts.

Here is a good diagram

The girl is singing (it's raining, it's pouring; the old man is snoring) when you see her in the hallway.

http://attractionsmagazine.com/american-idol-experience-disneys-hollywood-studios-closing-early-2015/

The American Idol Experience attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be shutting down in early January 2015.
Although Disney hasn’t officially announced it yet (See the update below.), Idol cast members were told the show would be limiting the number of daily shows starting in mid-July, then closing the show completely the first week of January 2015.

The show, which opened in 2009, allowed park guests to try out to perform for other guests and to compete for the Golden Ticket, which allowed them to skip the line at an “American Idol” television show audition. Many “American Idol” finalists got their start at the attraction over the years.

UPDATE: Walt Disney World Resort, FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment have released this joint statement:

“After more than five successful years, The American Idol Experience will be coming to a close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in January 2015. Our partnership with FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment has been a great addition to the park and we are very appreciative of the amazing cast and guests who have devoted their time and talent to make this experience special and memorable. We are incredibly proud of the more than 2,000 Dream Tickets that have given guests a chance to live their very own Cinderella story and audition for ‘American Idol’. This past season alone, three of the Top 13 contestants were originally discovered through The American Idol Experience and we expect the attraction to continue providing top contestants for ‘American Idol’ XIV in the coming year.”

Or the fact American Idol's popularity in general has gone way down over the last few years.

I was thinking the same thing - especially with the theater next door vacant (other than movie previews), there's nothing in their way of taking over Echo Lake. Now I'll just be curious to see how they handle Indiana Jones.
