The latest upgrade of the fear level at Disney World's Twilight Tower of Terror is aimed at re-creating the ride with surprises that will encourage guests to line up repeatedly. Called "Tower4," the new version of the ride was unveiled for visiting international travel journalists on Tuesday night. The new ride will be ready for guests in January.

This is definitely one of the best rides at Disney - especially at the Disney/MGM studios.

Now if they can only update everything else at that park it might be worth a trip there.

Dang....I'm going the first week of December. I guess I'll have to wait until the next trip to try out the new randomizer. Still my favorite drop ride of them all! The immersive theming just makes it awesome.

Well, this is great that the ride is getting a randomizer, but how reliable is it going to be? Because if you have the latest thing in drop ride technology, but the rides down 50% of the time, then its better to get rid of it. Just like X. Its down a lot, but its the newest thing in coasters.

All I have to say is Cool! :)

I've rode the ride 2 different times. Once this past January, when you were dropped 3 times and a few years ago when you were just dropped once. A new Idea for the ride might make the DS more appealing!
