About Me (And TowerSecrets!)

TowerSecrets.com is a labor of love by Mandi Grant, web developer and artist. It’s basically an outlet for coping with not being able to ride the Tower every day. 🙂 I first rode the Tower when I was 10 years old and it scared the daylights outta me.  But that’s okay, I love being scared silly.


December 1994 – my first ride on the Tower of Terror! (I’m the screaming kid 😀 )

A couple decades of thrill rides later, I can still say the Tower is my most cherished theme park attraction. The Tower is so many of my favorite things – ghosts, creepy old buildings, a science fiction backstory, an exhilarating ride experience – rolled up into one tall, beautiful, cobwebbed bundle.

The “insides” of things have always fascinated me, and the Tower is no exception. Most theme park attractions are easy to figure out, but the Tower was (and still is, in many ways) a mystery to me.  I would give almost anything for a tour of the Tower of Terror’s engine room and to ride with the lights on.  In the meantime, I will settle for building this site dedicated to the Tower of Terror (and its secrets… you know, like secret stuff).


Many of the photos on this site were taken by me using a simple point and shoot camera. Read more about my photography equipment here.

Site Design

This site is powered by WordPress. It uses the Genesis framework and a custom theme I created myself called 13th Floor.
