Slinky Dog Dash

inline imageGuests are in for a rollicking good time as Disneys Hollywood Studios unleashes Slinky Dog Dash in the new Toy Story Land at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Andys idea for his double-launch coaster a Disney first was to pick everyones favorite floppy-eared dachshund with the stretching coil body Slinky Dog to send guests around the track. The attractions ride vehicles are spring-tailed spinoffs of Slinky, the iconic American toy from the 1940s. Track and supports for the coaster are done up in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue.

Guests approaching the ride launch see Andys plans sketched out in Crayola crayon on notebook paper. Glue bottles, empty toy boxes and stray coaster parts and pieces are strewn about Andys pet project was clearly a work in progress when he was called away. But thats when the toys will play!

In one hilarious scene, the coaster swoops around blocks Andy stacked around his Jenga game. Rex, the toy dinosaur, is precariously perched atop the unstable Jenga stack trying to decorate the toy block city by stringing up colored Christmas lights a daunting task when youre a dinosaur with short front arms! Jessie comes to his rescue, working to untangle Rexs dino-sized predicament.

Andy also tricked out his coaster creation with a power booster. When Slinky Dog Dash hits its midway point, the coaster stops, reverses a few yards, then shoots through multiple rings pulsing with sounds, spinners and flashing lights to launch riders into the second act of the ride experience.

The first half of the ride is many swirls, turns and dips, and after the second launch come a drop and camelback humps as if you were playing with a Slinky Dog toy, explained Dave Minichiello, Executive Creative Director of Walt Disney Imagineering.

Andy saved one last surprise for his coasters finale: Wheezy, the squeaky toy penguin from the Toy Story films, breaks into a rendition of Youve Got a Friend in Me. Created especially for Slinky Dog Dash, the Audio-Animatronics figure of Wheezy is unique among Disney Parks globally. Toys and toy packaging complete the scene, including a Rubiks Cube, a game canister for Pick-Up Snakes and toy wooden blocks spelling out F-U-N all against the backdrop of a towering book, Mr. Pricklepants Songs for Singing, compiled by the huggable hedgehog from Toy Story 3.

As Toy Story Land welcomes our guests as toys into Andys backyard, Slinky Dog Dash invites them into Andys imagination, said Phil Holmes, Vice President of Disneys Hollywood Studios. What Andy has dreamed up will deliver nonstop coaster fun for all ages.
