Out of pure fun, I’ve decided to finally tackling something I’ve always wanted to tackle and that was to design the Tower of Terror but without any references to the Twilight Zone. While I personally think that the Twilight Zone elements increase the ride’s enjoyment with all of its easter eggs and the Rod Serling narration, I do believe that a completely original version of the attraction with no IP would be just as good, if not better; very similar to like what we see in Tokyo’s Tower of Terror. I won’t be taking any single Tower of Terror and altering it but rather starting from scratch yet picking elements from the classic rides while maintaining the overall storyline.
Robert Niles’s article, “Why do Disneyland fans complain so much?” has recently been spread around a lot of Disney fan communities. In the article, Niles writes that [hardcore] Disney fans hate seeing the parks change and then goes on to question why these fans continue to go to Disneyland if it angers so much. Another thing Niles discusses is that the changes has no effect on Disney so they don’t care about fan opinion. The author also tells these fans to just go to Universal Studios if these changes upset them so much. This is all complete nonsense.
Just last week, a MiceAge article was released discussing many behind-the-scenes things about Disney as the average MiceAge article does. In this article, the author discusses a series of plans for Star Wars Land. The author goes into details about the Stormtrooper Battle Escape attraction (code name Alcatraz), as well as the Millennium Falcon attraction (Big Bird), and the overall tone of the land. It should be noted that, while the site has a good track record, these are all currently rumors and have not been confirmed by anyone working for Disney publicly. Although these are rumors, however, that will not stop me from giving my commentary on them.
