You’ll be zooming through the highways of Los Angeles in order to make their concert on time, and let me tell you it’s a whole lot more fun than the real thing.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Tower Of Terror is the true gem of Hollywood Studios, and this is now the only location in the states where you can find this ride as Disney’s California Adventure has traded it out for Guardian’s of the Galaxy. Climb aboard the hotel’s haunted elevator to experience a trip to the twilight zone. You’ll wind through the creepy 13th floor first and then the real thrills come!
