Everyone knows how great and amazing Disneyland is, but let’s not forget about Disney’s California Adventure. Sure the underrated park is much smaller then Disneyland, but it still full of fun and excitement. California Adventure has many events from tours, to shows, to parades, to your favorite Disney characters walking about the park. The park also has various types of food and restaurants. What makes this park so special and fun you may think, are the rides and attractions. California Screamin’, Goofy’s Sky School, Grizzly River Run, Mickey’s Fun Wheel, and so much more, but my personal favorite is The Twilight Zone, Tower of Terror.
The ride is based on an episode on the famous, dark TV show known as The Twilight Zone. The setting is Hollywood, 1939 in the Hollywood Hotel. On a harsh rainy night, lighting struck the tower, specifically hitting an elevator. The lightening caused the elevator to travel at supersonic speed and somehow made the passengers inside disappear. Creepy right?
Unfortunately, the famous ride will be taken down for good on January 2. Disney is replacing it with a Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
I decided to take a trip to California Adventures for one last elevator ride on the spooky Tower of Terror. Excitement and sadness ran through my body as I stood waiting in that one-hour line. As I was getting closer to getting on the ride, the usual tummy ache and nervous feeling did not strike me as it usually does before riding the ride. The thought of this being my last time on the tower made me bummed and took away my nervous butterfly feeling.
After the ride, my pettiness went away. Walking away with chills I looked back at the ride, my heart grew heavy and a soft smile came to my face.
