Fodor's Review

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.

Smooth-Not Shaken or Stirred!

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.
