The Slinky Dog Dash attraction’s coaster train was officially unveiled by Disney today – National Slinky Day.

Slinky Dog Dash is one of two major attractions coming to Toy Story Land, a 12-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 brand-new family coaster that is part of the all-new Toy Story Land opening summer 2018. Inspired by the playful dachshund spinoff of Slinky¨, the classic American toy, Slinky¨ Dog Dash will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops that Andy has created to stretch Slinky¨ and his coils to the max.

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.

Disney also released a fun video of the toys “unveiling” the new coaster trains:

Disney also released some “normal” video of the train arriving, as well as interviews with two Imagineers working on the project:

The second attraction, Alien Swirling Saucers, 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 using “The Claw.”
