You’ll get a different kind of adrenaline rush with this ride ;) Credit: Disneyland But of course, the (more than a decade old) attraction won’t be going down without one last scare! With Halloween season just right around the corner, park visitors are certainly in for a treat.

It’ll also mark the first time the park has turned the lights out on the ride! Commemorative merchandise, alongside special food and beverage, items will also be sold throughout the season.

Don't be disheartened though! You can still ride the tower at other parks around the world like Walt Disney Studios Park (Disneyland Paris), Disney Hollywood Studios (Orlando) and even Tokyo Disneysea! Let us know in the comments below what you think of Disney's decision to replace this terrifying yet iconic attraction?
