Celebrating SoCal’s famed film industry, the Backlot holds the ultimate thrill ride inside: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Enter the creepy “old hotel,” go through the “service area,” and take your place inside an elevator straight out of your worst nightmares. This ride aims for teens and adults rather than little kids, and it’s not a good one for folks who fear heights or don’t do well with free-fall rides.
Less extreme but also fun, Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sully to the Rescue! invites guests into the action of the movie of the same name. You’ll help the heroes as they chase the intrepid Boo. This ride jostles you around a bit, but can be suitable for smaller kids as well as bigger ones.
