  • TOT had a seizure last night.

    I was leaving the park last night around 10:30 and they had a ton of strobes going off on the tower. It was really interesting. Anybody know if this has anything to do with upcoming Halloween plans.

    Plus, the new Halloween decorations in the TOT lobby are great. I love the decomposing pumpkins.

    Great title to try and get people to come to this thread. Suggests that someone had a medical problem or the ride went down.

    "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

        I was actually about to start a new thread about this myself. The decorations are beyond awesome and I can't wait for the Tower of Terror show to start up.

        The lobby decorations are snazzy:













        They've really put a lot of thought into the details:



        I wanna party on the 13th floor too!



        Fresh Treats!



        And yes, it seems like the strobe lights were being heavily tested last night. Take a look:

        But of course, in the end, it's always those wacky Micechatters who steal the show:

          I don't think a lot of people would get it, but they should keep the halloween decorations up all year since the 'incident' occured on Halloween.

            Monorail Man, CaptPhoebus and I were actually discussing this while in the queue. The problem is that the queue video doesn't make this apparent at all and neither did the movie itself. If at least some of the people in the elevator were in costume, like they were about to go to a masquerade on the 13th floor it would actually fit in better with the theming.

                  Probably 'lightning striking the tower.' Even though they have that when taking your picture already. The major flash before you drop.

                    OOOooooh, I love the decorations! I love the Tower anyway, so having it decorated for Hallows would make it even better.

                      I'm not sure how I feel about putting haloween decorations in the ride. The signs look too new, although they did try and age them a bit. They seem a bit too ... cartoony for 1939 ... as does the boiler room ... but that's for another topic.

                        Do we know if they are going to make any other changes to the ride?

                            According to the official story for tower the lightning strike hit the tower on October 5th 1939 at 8:05 pm, at least thats what i was told when i was getting trained on it. So it does make some sense that there was halloween decorations up in october, but the people in the library video aren't in costumes from the period.

                              Huh? Clocks are locked at 8:05pm, and it was halloween, look at the date on the paper in the lobby. October 31st, 1939.
