terror of the towers

  • mom: the baby's about to say it's first words!!!
  • baby: y...y..
  • mom: come on, spit it out
  • baby: y.... you...you unlock this door with the key of imagination, beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into . . . The Twilight Zone.
  • Hollywood, 1939. Amidst the glitz and the glitter of a bustling young movie town at the height of its golden age, the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right. A beacon for the show business elite. Now, something is about to happen that will change all that.
  • The time is now, on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed. Tonight's story in The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a maintenance service elevator, still in operation, waiting for you. We invite you, if you dare, to step aboard because in tonight's episode you are the star. And this elevator travels directly to . . . The Twilight Zone.

The audio in the Hollywood Tower Hotel of the girl lost in ‘the fifth dimension’ - an homage to the classic Twilight Zone episode Little Girl Lost, and possibly my favorite atmospheric bit in the whole attraction. It is also near impossible to hear all of it and the full range of the audio in the physical location itself, so this file is a real treat.
