Original Spiel: [​EDITED MAY 2021]

Hello, fellow Minecrafters!
Over the summer (2016), I was inspired to recreate one of my favorite beautifully, architecturally-styled amusement rides: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. It started off as a silly concept to reimagine and reconstruct this ride in block form, but after hearing the news about Disney's decision to overlay Disney California Adventure's version with a Marvel-themed "Guardians of the Galaxy" façade, ultimately getting rid of the Twilight Zone theme and story many of us "DCA Tower riders" know and love, I decided to get serious about this build in hopes of recreating it as best that I can as both a tribute to the attraction and contribution to the Minecraft community.

This project is my very first attempted, published build (one that I'm actually determined on finishing) and I have to say that I am really surprised and happy the way that it's been coming together. This is a build that I approached with a very mathematical sense, meaning, every width, length, and height was chosen for a reason, both structurally and visually, that was appropriate to reciprocate the image of the actual building. I have to say that the precision and strictness of the number of blocks in each xyz-axes for each section of the attraction made the build easy to work around; it was almost like fitting in puzzle pieces to see if they fit.

I say that it's about 3 months now (as of September 2016) since I first started this build, way back in June, and I've documented the progress since the beginning. "Blueprints" for the build were found online and used as reference and many of the texturing and aesthetic features were inspired by other builds of this attraction, and, of course, many MANY photos were analyzed and incorporated heavily. The build is recreated from the inside and out; the lobby, queues, elevator shafts, libraries, exit corridors, staff/maintenance areas, show rooms, on-ride photo/gift shop, etc. are all accessible and have/will have interior décor.

I hope that this can give you builders out there some inspiration and/or motivation to make more amazing content for this community.

TL;DR: This is a Twilight Zone Tower of Terror recreation in Minecraft build that took way too much effort into creating than I expected but is turning out awesome looking. It looks so scary at night! World Save download available when finished.

Wowie... I haven't touched this project in a long time. The short answer: college & time.



I have been gradually updating this build with a completely new redesign. The dimensions are far bigger. I'd call this version 2.0 since it's totally different from the one I started 5 years ago. This was an executive decision that eventually helped solve a number of issues due to lack of space in the first version.

I've basically started from the ground up about a year ago and been slowly adding new things with each Minecraft update that came out. The process is much slower, but it's helped me refine and finish different sections of this build one by one.

I won't be frequently updating because life's been busy, but I am going at a steadier pace than how I was 5 years ago.

There are too many revisions to list that I might actually rename this post as a "V2.0" or something

i'm curious is it possible once you fully finish it that i can use it in my amusement park build, you would obviously get full credit for it?

It will soon be! That's last on my list of things to do. As soon as I finish the exteriors and interiors, I will upload a world save and then start on programming the commands and update that download link whenever I finish. :)

A download link will be available when the build is finished. There is still a lot of things to get done, such as behind the building, the gift shop area, and, of course, all of the furniture and texturing. It might not be available for a couple months as I need to find the time to actually work on it, but I'm not sure of the exact time it'll take to finish. Just remember to check back every few weeks or so, maybe even a month, to see the progress I've made. I hope that answered your question!
