No doubt envisioning another “Pirates of the Caribbean”-sized success, Disney are said to be working on a feature film version of their theme park attraction “Tower of Terror”.
The studio, who also bought map stop “The Haunted Mansion” to screens (albeit not successfully), will apparently featureize the “Twilight Zone”-inspired attraction.
Here’s how Wikipedia describes the ride, “[Tower of Terror] is a drop tower thrill ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s California Adventure Park, Tokyo DisneySea and Walt Disney Studios Park. It is based upon the television show The Twilight Zone. The original version of the attraction opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in July 1994, with the California Adventure version opening nearly ten years later, in May 2004. The Tokyo DisneySea versionâ€”named simply “Tower of Terror” and featuring a modified storylineâ€”opened in September 2006, followed by the Walt Disney Studios Park version in April 2008.
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 on October 31st, 1939, 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 faÃ§ade where the lightning destroyed part of the building. All of the cast members wear a costume that resembles that of a 1930s bellhop. At over USD$1000 per uniform, it is the most expensive costume in the various theme parks.”
