    ToT voice?

    No, not the person (Mark Silverman?) who does the Rod Serling impersionation. I'm wondering who did the voice that speaks as you wait to go into the library and once again as you wait to go into the ride vehicles.

    Thanks in advance,

    --Kevin

    I've just been having this discussion on another forum, and the general thought is that it is a woman. I personally do not think it could be a man at all!

    Yeah, I know about that thread. So far, there's just a lot of opinion there, no facts. That's what prompted me to join this forum and ask here. I was just kinda hoping that "Ask the Expert(s)" would perhaps bring up something more authoritative than an opinion -- no offence intended!

    I'm beginning to think, though, that the answer may not be something that's known outside of Imagineering.

    Not sure if you guys have seen this: http://www.towerofterror.org/secrets.html

    "Rod Serling's introduction to the attraction, as viewed on film in the Library, was taken in part from an episode of the series titled, "It's a Good Life." This episode told the story of a little boy who could use his mind to change things. Serling began the episode with the words, "Tonight's story on The Twilight ZoneŽ is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a . . ." Imagineers completed that introduction with new dialogue customized for the attraction. For continuity, Serling's own voice was overdubbed by asound-alike actor to blend with the newly-added narration."

    Yeah, that's pretty well known. In fact, I mentioned the name of the voice actor who did that Rod Serling impersonation in my initial message. That information is not terribly hard to find (a simple Google search will turn up most of that right at the top).

    I'm looking for information on the other voice in the attraction queue areas.

    Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

    No worries. It's just a bit weird -- people can't even agree on the gender of the person speaking!
