Drop into The Twilight Zone

Hold on tight for a thrilling ride into the Twilight Zone.

A Grand Re-Opening
Tour the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel, the onetime haunt of Tinseltown’s rich and famous until a mysterious incident forced it to close in 1939. Amble under the iron-wrought gates of the abandoned abode and wind your way through a neglected, weed-filled garden before stepping inside a dusty lobby, seemingly frozen in time.

Edge into a dark library with strange artifacts. As lightning illuminates the darkened room, a nearby television set springs to life and Rod Serling welcomes you on a journey into the Twilight Zone.

From a secret passage, trudge into the shadowy confines of the dilapidated boiler room, home to rattling machinery and your vessel into the 5th dimension: the service "elevator". Enter the rickety lift and strap yourself in, light bulbs spookily flickering on and off above you.

Going Up?
Launch upward in darkness until the corroded doors unlock to expose a lengthy hallway inhabited by the otherworldly hotel inhabitants from 1939. Beckoning for you to join them, the spooky specters dematerialize and your skyward journey continues.

The 5th Dimension
At the 13th floor, a collection of sights and sounds inspired by the opening credits of The Twilight Zone come into view. Journey through this star-filled realm and prepare to discover what lies beyond the darkest corner of imagination.

Going Down!
Shriek in terror as you hurl down the abandoned shaft then unexpectedly changes direction and launches back up the hotel. Gaze out through a missing wall 13 stories high as the doors inexplicably open and close to reveal the hotel grounds. As if possessed by some unseen phantom, you plummet down and speed upward over and over again, the sound of cables snapping and metal clanging overhead.

Will you make it back to the real world… or will you become a permanent resident of the Twilight Zone?

The Mystery of the Hollywood Tower Hotel

On a stormy Halloween night in 1939, 5 unlucky souls disappeared from the Hollywood Tower Hotel’s doomed elevator.

Classic stars of the silver screen sought rest and relaxation at the Hollywood Tower Hotel during the Golden Age of Hollywood. In 1939, during a gloomy Halloween night, 5 unfortunate hotel patrons were riding in the elevator when a violent storm struck the building… and they were never seen again. Whatever became of them and wherever they may have gone has remained a mystery to this day. The hotel closed down that night and has remained abandoned ever since.

The Present Day
You’re invited to take a tour of the Hollywood Tower Hotel—and an unforgettable ride—on a stormy night very similar to the evening when the unexplained event occurred. Be welcomed by Rod Serling as you journey to the 5th Dimension.
