Some more hints as to what to expect with these new effects.... (from Annual Passholder newsletter)

Quote

As part of Summer Nightastic!, Walt Disney Imagineers came up with even more unexpected thrills in the Hollywood Tower Hotel! If you listen closely, you can hear the distant rumble of thunder, not to mention the giggles from the disembodied voice of a child. New lighting and sound effects will add to the new experience, bringing Guests into the eerie halls of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Well, one of my fears about the Summer Nightastic has been realized. The Tower of Terror loses the random drop program and will have just the one "special" drop sequence. The random sequence is one of the things that I've told my nephews makes the DHS version better than the DCA version, and now they won't get to experience that.

Maybe I won't say anything to them and we'll only ride it once.

This from Attractions Magazine at the press event for Summer Nighttastic that took place yesterday. Scroll to 3:30 for Tower of Terror stuff, or watch the pretty cool MSEP stuff first :)

There is a Cast Preview for Tower (4.5?) on the 7th. So I'm assuming it'll open that day as well.
Professionals admit to the problem. Alcoholics claim they have no problem.

It's actually a DHS Cast Exclusive Event, not a preview. The effects' first day is Sunday the 6th, the first day of Summer Nightastic!

I also have some info on the new effects coming to Tower.

According to Jason Roberts, a show producer with WDI
"…Tower of Terror after dark - an eerie green glow emanating from the abandoned shafts."
