The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is located just near where the ampitheather for the show Fantasmic can be found. It is in Disney's MGM theme park in Orlando, Florida. The attraction is themed to resemble the fictional Hollywood Tower Hotel. The story of the hotel, adapted from elements of the television series, includes the hotel being struck by lightning and mysteriously transporting an elevator cart full of passengers to the Twilight Zone. The exterior of the attraction resembles an old hotel with a blackened scorch mark across the front of the façade where the lightning destroyed part of the building. I did not actually ride this one as I keep telling that I am afraid of heights. The more I did not want to even go near the entrance upon hearing people who rode in the elevator scream and seeing the elevator go down all of a sudden, stop, plunging down again and so on ...

If anyone has experience with this, please do share so you can give tips and what to expect for would be riders. After all, there is more to this elevator ride than just plunging down. And that ... is the Twilight Zone.
