Tower of Terror Experiencing Elevated Wait Times This Month Following Mechanical Issues

The Tower of Terror attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is experiencing extremely elevated wait times this month – even posting three of the single highest wait times this week since the Walt Disney World parks reopened last summer.

So far, November has seen a 25% jump in average posted wait times over the next highest month (March 2021). Data courtesy of

Tower of Terror has averaged a 54 minute posted wait time since the theme parks reopened last summer, and recent daily averages have been north of 90 minutes.

The elevated wait times are likely due to capacity issues as Disney works on mechanical issues within the attraction. Disney is able to keep the ride open, even if it isn’t running at full capacity at all times.

Earlier this month, the attraction often experienced morning downtime as overnight work delayed opening. The attraction reportedly received a motor replacement that required an access panel to be opened as seen in the photos below.

At this point it’s unknown when wait times might return to normal, that is 45-60 minutes.
