    In the middle of Disney World's Tower of Terror (between the two lift shafts) their is a service room which staff can have their breaks in. When the lifts drop, the walls of the service room appear to 'breathe' as the compressed air beneath the falling lift is blasted out of the shaft.

    That must be a pretty weird place to take a break!

    I remember hearing something about how when they first tried the system for the falling lift, they blew all the walls or doors off at the bottom of the shaft because of the force of the compressed air. Don't know if it's true or not - anyone know?

    There is a "hidden floor" in the main building of Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. It is used by celebrities, newly married couples and others who want total privacy.
