This is a ride in Disney World that will test the mettle of the most cynical of joy riders.

You walk into an old castle-like building while the screams of the folks ahead of you are filling the air. You walk through what seems to be rooms in which Edgar Allen Poe would have lived. Then you are ushered into the basement where the elevator will take you up to your floor.

All the time you're seeing Rod Serling on the TV discussing the thirteenth floor.

You get into an elevator which takes you up for a while, then the doors open, the seats move to the front, and you see outside, just as you are dropped for several floors. How many? It depends. That's the beauty of the ride; you never know.

My daughter, who is an expert in these matters, says it's the coolest ride in the world.
