The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Walt Disney Studios Park is the fourth (and most recent) Tower of Terror. It opened its gates to the public in 2007 with a dazzling inauguration ceremony.
The Paris Tower of Terror is an (almost!) identical twin to the version in Disney California Adventure.
About Walt Disney Studios Park
Walt Disney Studios Park is the second Disney park in Paris. It opened in 2002, though its history goes much further back to early 1990s plans for what was then called “Euro Disney”. Financial difficulties delayed development of the European park, but the park has since come into its own as a result of Disney’s continued efforts to build up the park.
Like Hollywood Studios, Florida, Walt Disney Studios Park is an entire park dedicated to movie-making and show business. The Tower of Terror is located in the Production Courtyard, whose theme is movie production and the legends and mythos of moviemaking.
Walt Disney Studios Park is the second-most attended amusement park in Europe, though out of Disney’s 11 theme parks worldwide it has the fewest number of guests annually.

Disney threw an epic party to celebrate the grand opening of the Paris Tower of Terror!
The Imagineers completely outdid themselves with this one: the show features a massive multi-dimension video projection that uses the Tower as a screen, a parade of costumed actors, and an explosive fireworks show – they even played a dance remix of the Twilight Zone theme.
