    Exclamation New Drop Sequence at Tower of Terror?

    Rumor has it that this year as part of the year of a million dreams program they are finally going to use the random drop sequence at DCA's Tower of Terror. Anyone know more? Rumor also has it that they will start in October it will begin on most likely around Halloween.

    Hmmmmmmmm...how would it be different? Would the computer just pick at random when the elevators drop each time?

    I remember hearing rumors about the random drop sequence program being implemented into TOT a while ago, heck, I think it was even brought up as part of something that would happen during the 50th celebrations! Whatever happens, I hope they bring in the random drop asap, it's fabulous.

    Yes. No two drops would be the same (at least, not for quite a few cycles). It's pretty awesome not knowing when you're going to go up, drop, stop...good stuff!

    Yawn...I'll believe it when I see it. It was supposed to happen at least 2 years ago.

    If it does happen by then I'll be super excited.

    Does the one at WDW have a random drop sequence? Because it felt like it to me.

    That would be awesome if the DL got the random drop sequence. ^_^ Would make it a wee bit more scary!

    Just to clarify, the computers don't pick when to drop you at random. There would be multiple drop sequences available that have been tested and tested and tested. The computer would then randomly pick from one of these pre-programmed sequences.

    I was gonna say, ya, that was supposed to happen a long time ago. I think it will happen sometime, but way down the line. I think DCA has bigger problems/stuff in the works at the time being. It will come, but don't expect it tomorrow.

    Really, WDI should have rolled this out by last year. It would have brought more people into the park to ride the new drop profile. Yes I think it would have.
