On May 4,2004, a Hollywood-style premiere was thrown at Disney California Adventure Park to celebrate the debut of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. At the event, held on the eve of the attraction's official opening, the red carpet was rolled out for celebrities such as Melissa Joan Hart and David Hasselhoff.
Guest of honor Carol Serling, widow of "The Twilight Zone" TV series creator Rod Serling, spoke at a brief ceremony.
"Rod would surely be delighted to know that 'The Twilight Zone' lives on in the hearts of so many fans," she said. "And he would be thrilled to know that his beloved 'fifth dimension' has been brought to life in such an exciting way."
Guests visiting the Hollywood Tower Hotel learn that, on a stormy Halloween night in 1939, five unlucky hotel guests mysteriously disappeared during a doomed elevator ride and were never seem again. Since that dreadful night, the hotel has remained abandoned-until now. A maintenance service elevator awaits those brave enough to journey to another realm of sight and sound. Shrieks and screams fill the elevator as it free falls 13 floors.
Looming 183 feet above the ground, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is the tallest attraction at the Disneyland Resort. A must-experience attraction when it opened, it still casts a large shadow for Guests today.
