The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or simply the Tower of Terror is an attraction in Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris as-well as former attraction of Disney California Adventure, themed around the NBC series The Twilight Zone. The California version of the attraction was shut down in 2017 to make way for Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!, an attraction which contained various connections to the defunct Tower of Terror.

History

Backstory

The Hollywood Tower Hotel was once an esteemed hotel for Hollywood's elite. This all changed on the Halloween of 1939 when lightning from the 5th Dimension struck the hotel's elevator shafts, sending four guests and a bellhop plummeting to their deaths. A black scorch where the elevators once stood was left on the side of the hotel which was shut down for decades, before mysteriously reopening in the 1990s as a haunted portal to the 5th dimension.

More assorted artifacts include books and a portrait of Napoleon III which were amongst the Hollywood Tower Hotel's possessions. Also in the office is a book titled, "A Far Cry From the Top Floor", referencing the plot of the attraction while written in the attraction's font.[1]
