Slinky Dog Dash

Slinky Dog Dash is located in Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The ride has plenty of banked turns, dips and hills and is something coaster lovers will get a kick out of.

Intended to feel like Toy Story’s Andy placed his stretchy pup atop a DIY coaster kit, Slinky Dog Dash rides as smoothly as a toy on its steep lifts, swooping drops and soaring heights.

About midway through the Slinky Dog Dash experience, Slinky hits a bit of a slow-down, and asks Guests to “hang on.” He backs up slowly and then he speeds off through three arches with the word, “Go!” on them. The rest of the ride is just as thrilling as the first part!

Andy saved one last surprise for his coaster’s finale: Wheezy, the squeaky toy penguin from the Toy Story films, breaks into a rendition of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” Created especially for Slinky Dog Dash, the Audio-Animatronics figure of Wheezy is unique among Disney Parks globally.

Fun Facts:

  • The ride can accommodate 4 trains at a time.
  • The Slinky Dog Dash ride vehicles were created in Germany.
  • The queue is filled with drawings of the imagined roller coaster made by Andy.
  • In Slinky Dog Dash’s queue, guests can find Triple R Ranch stickers. This is a reference to both a shirt that Andy wore in Toy Story, as well as the setting of The Adventures of Spin and Marty, a series of shorts that aired from 1955 until 1957 as part of the original Mickey Mouse Club.
  • Just before guests board Slinky Dog Dash, they can see the box that Rex originally came in. On the box is a price sticker with the numbers 11, 12 and the price of $19.95. Put together these numbers make up 11/12/1995, the day that Toy Story premiered.
