It has been a rough few months for the trains at Slinky Dog Dash in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A guest has uploaded a photo of a Slinky Dog train sitting in the station with an eye that broke off of its mount.
We’re not sure exactly when this happened or what caused the eye to break off. Thankfully, the train was able to return to the station without the eye coming completely off and potentially falling into a guest area.

This comes less than a month after the trains had their tails removed for safety inspections. The tails have since been returned, but this latest incident casts some doubt over the durability of the coaster trains. Disney will likely review all of the trains once again following this new issue.
Hopefully this is an isolated incident that doesn’t reflect a poor “eye” for details in the overall construction of Slinky Dog Dash.
