Disneyland visitor falls from 'Tower of Terror'

Perhaps a good tip for amusement park operators, particularly those operating under the slogan 'The Happiest Place on Earth', would be not to actually perpetuate the name of the rides you build.

Disneyland's so-called 'Tower of Terror' did just that, a television newsroom has reported, after a guest fell some 25 feet while waiting to hop onboard one of the ride's elevators.

Although the ride is actually made to have guests drop down several flights of stairs in just a matter of seconds, Disney hopes that guests opt to use the tower's built-in terror elevators.

The 20-year old climbed a rail and fell off - having had alcohol - and having just joked to his friends about the potential of actually falling off.

He was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital.
