It’s National Slinky® Day today and Walt Disney Resort has revealed a brand-new family coaster that will be added to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The coaster named Slinky® Dog Dash will be one of the experiences that you will encounter at the new 11-acre Toy Story Land. Toy Story Land is scheduled to open Summer of 2018.
According to Disney, you’ll feel as if you’ve landed in Andy’s backyard. The new ride will send you dipping, dodging and dashing in turns and drops that Andy created for Slinky®. “It’s really cool,” says Dave Minichiello, Executive Creative Director, Toy Story Land. “It’s pretty amazing to see it.” The ride and creative team are working on making sure the ride mimics what the toy would do. “The movements that you make, while you’re on the coaster has that type of feel. It’s going to be an amazing ride to go on.”
Wait, there’s more! You’ll also be able to experience Alien Swirling Saucers. It’ll be part of Pizza Planet’s toy play set, that’s loaded with Aliens spinning around in their flying saucers. The Aliens will be pulling the rocket ship that you’ll be riding.
