Hollywood Tour was located in the cellar of the Crazy Bats (originally Space Center, later Temple of the Night Hawk) roller coaster, about 8 meters under the coaster. The station featured various movie posters and miniatures of the ride's scenes. An animatronic Alfred Hitchcock welcomed guests on the tour behind the scenes at Hollywood. After boarding one of the boats and passing under a cinema marquee, guests plunged down into a cave setting, after which scenes from various classic movies followed. These where in order: Jaws, Tarantula, Sindbad the Sailor, Frankenstein, 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea, Tarzan, The Wizard of Oz and King Kong.
The music featured was Voyager by John Dyson a.k.a. Wavestar.
It took 2 years to construct Hollywood Tour in the cellar of the Space Center roller coaster which was already operational since 1988. It was designed by one of Phantasialand's founders, Richard Schimdt, who was a film enthusiast. Some scenes bear a resemblance to other famous rides. The Jaws one in particular seems to be inspired by the original Backlot Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. Intamin manufactured the ride system and designed the world's first Spillwater with a curved drop in order for the layout to fit inside the limited available space.
The station was originally barely themed, the scale models and animatronic Alfred Hitchcock were added in the mid 90s. Some scenes have been changed out over time. In 2000, Samson and Delilah was changed to resemble Sindbad the Sailor. In 2007, Hitchcock's only featured movie The Birds became The Wizard of Oz. Other scenes were mildly edited throughout the years or given some new props. The ride was last open on 21 June 2020, and had to be closed reportedly due to suffering from water damage to technical equipment. As of December 2022, the scenes have been largely demolished and it is unknown what is going to happen with the space.
