  • I created a Tower of Tower Basement Elevator in my home.

    So I posted this in the Disneyland forum, but thought people interested in Disney World might also enjoy it. So over the past months after nearly a decade of thought, I have made significant progress in recreating a version of the Tower of Terror Basement elevator using a regular sliding glass door which is the entrance to my home theater.; hence the name of my Youtube channel is Tower of Terror Theater. The channel documents the progress of the project in which the goal is not only to recreate my version of the elevator entrance, but also to add special effects such as thunder/lightning, exploding/smoking/on fire/short-circuiting fuse box, simulated rain, working steam pressure gauge and bursting steam pipe, functional elevator lighted dial and multiple other special effects. Additionally I have made an effort to even expand on the story of the tragic night in 1939, and the journey you take as you enter the Twilight Zone. I am thrilled to have gotten Mark Silverman, the voice talent who does the voice of Rod Serling in the real Tower of Terror, agree to do some custom voice scripts for my recreation. Check it out, especially if you are a lover of the Tower of Terror

    My Disney Tower of Terror recreation is constantly being upgraded and improved. Here is the most recent video of the project. The project was also recently shown on Good Morning America's Halloween edition of Haunted Homes.

          Thanks for the kind comments above. I DONT have any particular talent other than perhaps a good imagination causing me to burn a hole in my pockets. This project is still actively progressing 16 months after starting with addition of new effects. Here is the latest version of the show with multiple new effects added.

              Thanks DairySham; drop me note if you are ever planning a visit to Vegas. I am sure that meeting me in person would be totally underwhelming since as I mention my most important role has been financial. I am wishful that it will be possible to complete the final big aspect of the project which is an autonomous robotic elevator car for 4 riders that will look like the interior of the elevator cars at Disney and will move inside the room (and maybe go outside the room, have windows and elevator doors that will open and show either a view of the set, or OLED panels displaying what we want, and all be mounted on a drop platform to give perhaps a 6" drop to riders.

              In addition I am in planning stages for a Halloween 2021 Hotel grand opening where all the contractors, handymen, and creative partners will be invited for a show with costumed actors playing the 4 guests in the doomed elevator and bellhops. I do hope to film all of this event to share with others. In the meantime, we are continuing to add some new and fun additional special effects.
