Tower of Terror continues to rise into the air at DCA

Tower of Terror's structure continues to rise into the air, but it is not much taller than it was last week. A lot of I-Beams are waiting to be raised and there is a lot of groundwork going on to the right of the structure.

Isn't this basically a drop ride. They already have the Maliboomer. I know it launches you up but I'm surprised they're adding the same type of ride.

Heck no Sparky, TOT is a dark ride as well, that doesn't just drop you there are several drops, the last being the big 13 story plundge, here is a rundown of the Flordia version, DCA's is going to have some other effects added that will be amazing, but were not getting on key feature. Here's a detailed description,

After the amzing queue, you go into the library and watch the pre show, then enter the bolier room where the ride loads into 4 service elevators, that seat 24, the effects in here are amazing as you can see the motor's propelling the service elevators ( fake) well once you enter, the CM's on this ride act greatly! They are so convincing, you sit down and the whole row shares a lap bar. The doors close the Twilight Zone music starts and we go up in pitch darkness we stop, and we are looking down a hallway. A window is on the end, all of a sudden the halfway goes dark and tiny white fiberoptic lights are everywere, and we still see the window, now the window moves and swrills around in the air moving around the back of the hall, and the family and bell hop, who we saw in the preshow and were presumibly sent to the Twilight ZOne, show up in the air, and our looking at us then it closes and we go way up. We open and we're now in the 5th demention. Now The elevator moves out of the shaft and in this room, with mirror floors, black light and fiberoptic lights gaolore. We enter darkness and the Twilight ZOne host says we are now going to expierence what those same people ( the family) did on that night, then the drops come, and when we get high the place opens up and you get a nice view of WDW. When you drop it's preety much all dark and some ghosts will appear were quickly. Then the sequence ends and we see a movie screen showing the ride's name and the music plays and the host comes on and says next time you check into a hotel, make shure you know who your checking out for. Then the ride moves to the exit doors, and somehow gets back to the loading area. DCA's won't have that last room, the ride will be in one drop shaft the whole time, but some effects like, everyone except you, dissapearing, and some others will compinsate:)
