No one’s perfect, not even our dear Tower of Terror. 🙂
Video Tower vs. Real Tower
The Tower you see in the pre-show video is not the Tower you see in the park. 🙂 Here’s a few fun differences to look for each time you watch the pre-show:
Look closely at the “Hollywood Tower Hotel” sign during the library pre-show. The sign is positioned above – way above – the soon-to-be-destroyed elevator shafts. On the physical building, the sign letters are much lower and overlap the destroyed elevator shafts.
The sign placemnt was corrected in the California and Paris versions of the ride. The Tokyo DisneySea version does not include a hotel name sign.
Look closely at the side of the Tower’s tallest structure. Down the side are three columns of windows in the video, but there are just two columns on the real tower.
The video shows a large pointy-roofed building in front of the tower, but that building is absent in the real version.
