    Re: Randomized Tower of Terror?

    For me, the randomization of the DHS ToT has realy hurt the ride experience. I would say that 3 out of 4 times, there is almost NO thrill factor anymore. When you do get the complete drop version, it is awesome!!!

    Umm, here is a link to the FL tower of terror blueprint. FL ToT I can't find one for DCA but, at DCA the loading and drop are in the same shaft. So maybe it can't be randomized for safety reasons?

    Or it's just laziness. The DCA ToT was built on a much smaller budget.
    No, when you load your elevator moves backwards into the drop shaft. They do this so one can be riding in the shaft while one is loading, that's why there is two loading floors. When you get in the elevator look strait up, there is a ceiling. You have to move backwards and into the drop shaft before continuing upwards.
