One of the new additions that I’m most excited for is Toy Story Land. It’s my favorite Pixar series and I have several Toy Story collectibles in my office & home. Disney has released some new details on two of the attractions coming to Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. They’ve released a concept video of Slinky Dog Dash, the Slinky Dog themed roller coaster, and Alien Swirling Saucers. Hit the jump for details on these two attractions & to watch the concept video for Slinky Dog Dash.
Slinky Dog Dash looks to be the biggest attraction in Toy Story Land. It’s a Slinky Dog themed coaster that looks to wind throughout the land. Disney has released a concept video showing a little bit of what guests can expect on the ride. I’m looking forward to this attraction even though I’m not a huge roller coaster fan. Disney has classified the coaster as a “Family coaster attraction” meaning that it won’t have the same thrill factor as something like Rock-n-Roller Coster. Here’s what Disney has to say about the coaster:
The attraction features a coaster track that Andy has built all over his backyard using his Mega Coaster Play Kit, but as you know, he has a pretty amazing imagination, so he’s combined it with some of his other toys, according to Imagineer Kathy Mangum.
The other attraction detailed today was the Alien Swirling Saucers. This looks to be a Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters type of ride. The concept art is featured above on this post. I really like the look of this concept art and hope that Disney doesn’t change it too much. Here’s what Disney has to say about the Alien Swirling Saucers:
This attraction is designed as a toy play set that Andy got from Pizza Planet, inspired by the first Toy Story film. Aliens are flying around in their toy flying saucers and trying to capture your rocket toy vehicle with “The Claw.”
As you rotate around the toy planets and satellites as part of the game, you’ll swirl to the beat of fun “Space Jazz” music developed just for this experience, Mangum said. The music, the lighting, and the sound effects will add to the flurry of your adventure while “The Claw” looms ominously over you.
