Terror Tracks is an homage to Tower of Terror, currently being created as a form of carrying on the legacy of the popular attraction, which is currently set to be closed and re-themed on January 2nd, 2017. Terror Tracks is 100% digital, and will be released to the public in the form of a YouTube video / various pictures in December of 2016.
The goal for this virtual roller coaster was to follow similar beats to Tower of Terror, while still being a unique attraction. To accomplish this, I've taken iconic moments from the real ride (The "hallway" scene, the "wave goodbye" scene, etc) and re-profiled them to fit a new theme. If you've watched the video located at the top of this page, you know that Terror Tracks is themed to an underground subway train, in which riders are sent plummeting into another dimension via a rickety old track inspection vehicle.
The largest aspect of the project that needs funding is the voice actor. We've been in talks with Tower of Terror voice actor Mark Silverman, who has agreed to voice Terror Tracks for the right amount of money. Needless to say, we don't currently have "the right amount of money", which is where you come in!
If everyone contributes something small, we can accomplish something big!
NOTE: While we do want to create incentives for everyone to donate, it should be noted that if you purchase any of the rewards below, the vast majority of your "donation" will be going towards creating your reward, rather than towards our project. If you would like to pay for a reward AS WELL AS donate to the project, we recommend adding your desired donation amount to the price of the reward tier.
The following rewards are available to any of our potential backers:
"Hollywood Tower Hotel" Tee
A high quality, custom Hollywood Tower Hotel (black or white) design printed on an American Apparel Fine Jersey Short Sleeve T-Shirt. The HTH design includes the hotel's logo inside of a simple outline of the building. The text "HOLLYWOOD, CA - OCTOBER 31, 1939" is displayed decoratively at the bottom.
A high quality, custom H"T"H design printed on a blue American Apparel Fine Jersey Short Sleeve T-Shirt. The H"T"H design includes the HTH logo with a prominent "T", posing as the hotel building, which is being struck by lightning. The text "TOWER OF TERROR" is displayed decoratively at the top.
"Remembering The Hollywood Tower Hotel" Poster
This is a 18x24" physical print of our custom-made Remembering Tower of Terror design. The goal of this poster is to harness the beauty of the Hollywood Tower Hotel and celebrate its short, yet fulfilling life in California.
Whether you've made the decision to donate or not, I want to thank everyone who has even made it this far into the description. Regardless of whether your support is financial or emotional, we appreciate it! Projects like this aren't possible without the guidance and backing of friends and family.
Risks and challenges
Shipping large amounts of T-shirts/posters at one time can get overwhelming very quickly. Although we have experience creating/ordering custom T-shirts and posters, we've never had to ship them out to others in large quantities. Throughout the procedure of shipping the rewards, delays can arise within the manufacturing process or the actual shipping process. Everyone who pays for a reward deserves to receive it, and we will do our best to stay on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
