http://www.talkdisney.com ... Lightning strikes and the television comes on, apparently of its own accord. The opening sequence of Season 4 of The Twilight Zone plays, followed by a supposedly "lost" episode hosted by Rod Serling. Serling explains the mysterious events that caused the hotel to close back in 1939. Serling then states about the plot of what is to unfold that on a similar night like what the guests have just witnessed and this time the guests are the ones who are involved. He also mentions that one elevator in the hotel is still in working condition: the service elevator in the basement boiler room. He invites the guests, if they dare, to board the elevator and discover the secret of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
With that, the television shuts off and a back exit from the library opens. The guests exit and go to the boiler room, where they wait until the elevator is ready for them. In order to achieve the weightless effect the Imagineers desired, cables attached to the bottom of the elevator car actually pull it down at a speed slightly faster than what a free-fall in gravity would provide. Two enormous motors are located at the top of the tower.
