VIDEO: Imagineers Provide a Behind the Scenes Look at Slinky Dog Dash Coaster, Toy Story Land
Disney has released a new video showing off more of the Slinky Dog Dash coaster coming to Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Go behind the scenes with a handful of Imagineers that are working on the project to see the process of bringing this all-new family coaster to life.
From the Disney Parks Blog:
The ride vehicle, which is themed after the character of Slinky from “Toy Story,” took Imagineers from multiple disciplines a few years to design, so the group was thrilled to see the finished product arrive on the site firsthand. According to the Imagineers, the vehicle was created to reflect Slinky’s personality, the movement and motion of a Slinky toy, and of course Slinky’s adorable look which will be visible throughout the land as the coaster moves along the track.
“This is a ride for the whole family: it’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s thrilling, but it’s not scary,” said Imagineer Bob Vignec. “It’s a rollercoaster, but it’s also this fun character that will be out in the land. You sort of get a little bit of goosebumps seeing it here for the first time.”
Slinky Dog Dash will open alongside Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios next Summer.
