Attraction Overview

The second roller coaster in Hollywood Studios, Slinky Dog Dash is relatively new, having opened on June 30, 2018 with the rest of Toy Story Land. As with everything in Toy Story Land, Slinky Dog Dash is based on the Toy Story films. The story behind the attraction is that Andy built the roller coaster himself using a “Dash & Dodge Mega Coaster Kit” but instead used Slinky Dog as the vehicle. Since Slink is the ride vehicle, he talks to guests throughout the ride.

Guests will dash over hills at top speed while taking in the view of the rest of the land. If guests pay close attention, this ride will also show all of the original boxes for Andy’s toys, which is another fun experience to note. This ride is also Disney’s first ever double-launch roller coaster. In the middle of the ride, Slinky Dog slows to a stop before giving guests the warning to “Hold on” and then launching up another hill. When they are done on their mad dash trip, guests are brought into the brake run area, where they are serenaded by an audio-animatronic Wheezy the Penguin while waiting to get out.

While being outside has its advantages, such as being able to speed across Toy Story Land, it does occasionally cause issue for this ride. It is unfortunately not able to operate in heavy rain.

This attraction is a lot of fun, but it is still family friendly for those with children a little older. It is not as intense as the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, and it only has a 38″ height requirement. It is the perfect family friendly thrill.

Location & Wait Times

Located in Toy Story Land inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can find Slinky Dog Dash right across from Woody’s Lunch Box.

Wait times for this roller coaster are high, so this should be one that guests head to early in the morning to try to beat the line.

Queue Experience

The queue for this attraction is outside, and typically winds out of the main queue toward the Toy Story Land sign with Woody.

The great part of the queue for Slinky Dog Dash is that guests get to enjoy the immersive and fun nature of being in Toy Story Land and the feel of being shrunken down to toy size. In the queue guests will notice huge “papers” that are the instructions for how to build the Slinky Dog roller coaster. The awning style ceiling is even a blue print of the roller coaster.

Little touches such as Buster’s dog tag, army men, playing cards, and blocks also line the queue adding awe and wonderment wherever you look.

Even the safety instructions for this attraction are in theme. The safety instructions are given on the screen of a giant toy camera in a cartoon format.

When guests arrive to the from the walls are lined with drawings of Slinky Dog Dash and the box for the “toy”. This whole queue builds the excitement for what’s to come when guests finally get on this wild ride.
