Now that the official opening date for Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been announced for June 30th, the attention has now shifted from the construction phase for the land to the fine-tuning stage of the rides and theming.
Below is a new video showing some of the ongoing testing on the Slinky Dog Dash coaster.
The video is fairly limited in what it shows of the ride, but it does provide a nice preview of what’s to come for the Slinky Dog Dash coaster.
Critics will bash Disney for having a slow(ish) coaster with theming that may appear incomplete compared to rides such as Big Thunder Mountain or the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Those are fair complaints, but it’s important to remember that this is supposed to be a family-friendly ride in a park mostly lacking family-friendly rides, and is supposed to be a toy coaster set that Andy set up in his backyard.
Compared to the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Toy Story Land won’t look too impressive. Still, it should be a fun land that adds two new attractions to a park that desperately needs some rides to open.
