Disney’s Hollywood Studios takes the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and brings it to Walt Disney World in Florida. With some of the biggest and best rides in the Disney World parks, as well as tributes to Hollywood movie legends, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is where movie magic comes to life.
No visit to the Hollywood Studios would be complete without a ride, or two, on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. As the name would suggest, this ride is a high adrenaline experience which is definitely not the faint hearted! The legend goes that during the golden age of Hollywood, the Hollywood Tower Hotel was the epitome of luxury. One dark and stormy night five people were in an elevator going up to their hotel room when the hotel was struck by lightning. The elevator crashed to the ground, but the people were never seen again. Dare you step aboard another elevator, take your chances and maybe enter…The Twilight Zone!
Right next to The Tower of Terror is Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ other high adrenaline ride. The Rockin’ Rollercoaster features the music of Aerosmith as you step on board a super-stretch limousine to travel to one of the bands concerts. Speeding off from 0-60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds, Rockin’ Rollercoaster is a super high speed, thumping music and neon lit rollercoaster which will get you ready to party!
