- Random Drop Sequences
- 5th Dimension Room
- Location of Hotel up on the hill (more ominous and an actual Icon) not just stuck in a corner of the park
- No "Enter/Exit" through Hallway
- Enter/Exit in different portions of the Hotel (like you were actually IN The Twilight Zone)
For all these reasons, FL's wins HANDS DOWN (IMO).
If the DCA version would get random drop sequences it would "help" but it still wouldn't be better than the original.
Ditto... as someone from Florida told me after visiting DCA for the first time.
"They somehow figured out how to ruin ToT..."
The Florida one is a true Ride, where the DCA one is a (highly) dressed up carnival ride with some cool effects.
The 5th dimension room is HUGE to the effect, it also builds it up, being in the same chamber just doesn't do it for me.
I like DCAs Tower better. The one thing I do like about Floridas Tower is that when you enter the elevator there is no akward hallway and when you exit it is somewhere different. I do not care for the 5th dimension and after you enter the second shaft, you are just sitting there waiting. I also do not like the random drop sequence. The one I had was weak and made the ride less intense and boring.
The story telling comes out in the Orlando one better IMO. From the approach to the attraction all the way to the exit. They really made it a mysterious place to go to and experience. Even the road is messed up and cracked around it. The over grown plants in the front just so many details. The one here in DCA is awesome but if you asked me which one i would rather go on it would be the WDW one.
