After you enter the dimly lighted lobby of the deserted Hollywood Tower Hotel, then the dust-covered library, a lightning bolt zaps a TV to life. Rod Serling recounts the story of the hotel's demise and invites you to enter the Twilight Zone. On to the boiler room, where you board a giant elevator ride. The Fifth Dimension awaits, where you travel forward past scenes from the popular TV series. Suddenly, the creaking vehicle plunges into a terrifying, 130-foot free-fall
and then, before you can catch your breath, shoots quickly up, down, up, and down all over again. No use trying to guess how many stomach-churning ups and downs are in store—Disney's ride engineers have programmed random drop variations into the attraction for a different thrill every time.
Those who are pregnant or have heart, back, or neck problems shouldn't ride. For people with disabilities: You must have full upper-body strength and be able to transfer to a ride seat. Equipped for video captioning. Service animals can't ride. Get a Fastpass reserved-time ticket. Otherwise, come early or wait until evening, when crowds thin.

Smoothest thrill ride I've ever been on. All gain...absolutely NO PAIN. To REALLY enjoy this ride, leave your seat belt "just a little bit" unsnug! Ride this one as many times as you can. My personal favorite at Disney.
