In honor of National Slinky Day (August 30th), Disney Parks unveiled the Slinky Dog Dash Coaster train vehicle. According to Disney Parks Blog, “Slinky Dog Dash is one of two major attractions coming to Toy Story Land, a 11-acre expansion that’s set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Summer 2018. In Toy Story Land, guests will shrink to the size of a toy and explore the world of Andy’s backyard on two fun family attractions – Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers. Slinky Dog Dash is a family coaster themed as if Andy built it in his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit and some of his other favorite toys. The attraction’s ride vehicles, inspired by the character of Slinky in the film, will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops Andy has created to stretch Slinky’s coils to the max.”
At the Hollywood Studios theme park, Toy Story Mania can have wait times as long as two hours. With the popularity of Toy Story Mania, the new Toy Story Land is sure to be a huge success. That excitement will continue when Toy Story 4 hits theaters in the summer of 2019. A longtime Disney fan and Show You The World Travel associate, Sydnee Elizabeth, had this to say about the upcoming attractions, “I’m really excited for the Slinky Dog Coaster. It’ll be nice to have another coaster in the park with Rock n’ Roller Coaster. Hopefully when Toy Story Land opens, it will bring new life to Hollywood Studios after having much of the park closed for construction.”
The final piece of track was installed on August 1, 2017, and the new coaster train is now on-site. What are your thoughts, Coaster Addicts? Will you be lining up for this new coaster at the Walt Disney World Resort?
