Tower of Terror refers to a series of thrill rides created by GSK. Tower of Terror takes place in an abandoned elevator located inside The Hollywood Tower Hotel, an elaborate facade created to house the ride and its operations systems. According to the back story, riders are placed inside a seemingly ordinary hotel elevator, from which people mysteriously disappeared under the influence of a supernatural element many years prior. Since 2013, the methods used to develop the attraction are collectively referred to as the TX ride system.

Tower of Terror: Untold Stories is an entirely new experience developed by GSK, and is the fourteenth generation of the series. Whereas Tower of Terror Remastered was ported and upgraded in quality from ActiveWorlds, and had been in use since 2013 and therefore subject to that platform's restrictions, Untold Stories is developed exclusively for Virtual Paradise from the ground up. Untold Stories is located in Airpark, and currently consists of three attractions in one: Untold Stories, After Dark, and ‘’Cabin Fever’’, with the latter two only available during Halloween and Christmas, respectively.
