VIDEO - A longer look at Slinky Dog Dash Coaster in testing

Feb 16, 2018 in "Toy Story Land"

Here is some extended footage of the new Slinky Dog Dash Coaster testing in the brand new Toy Story Land, opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios June 30 2018.

In Slinky Dog Dash, Andy has assembled his roller coaster kit for maximum family fun. Tracks and supports in bright colors of red, orange, yellow and blue are put together according to Andy’s hand-drawn plans, with Rex and Jessie lending a hand. And to complete his creation, Andy picked up everyone’s favorite floppy-eared dachshund with a strrrrretch-ing slinky coil belly and dropped it on to the coaster track. Get ready to ride inside Slinky Dog’s coils! Slinky Dog Dash is inspired bythe delightful pooch spinoff of Slinky, the 1950s American toy classic. Riders of all ages will delight as Slinky Dog bends and twists his coils around curves, hills, bridges and drops in the Slinky-est coaster ever. Riders will zip around and above Toy Story Land, serving up panoramic views of all that the new land has to offer. Andy’s colorful creation will stretch Slinky Dog and his coils to the max – from his head to his upturned tail – and be fun for the entire family.

That’s not what I meant. What I meant was I like the cartoony one for fun. And I like The overhead realistic one for logistics.

You’re claim that published art is used for “logistics” is not really true.

I’m not sure what you’re getting at but ok

Nobody uses concept art for "logistics". More and more published art is not even all that conceptual, being created on top of the "blueprints" if they're not just the "blueprints" like we have seen with the recent hotels at Walt Disney World.

One is realism, the other imaginative. I wish they'd use both styles. One is fun, the other is for logistics.

His concept art is waaaaaaaay better than whoever does that horrible cartoon style rubbish. EDIT - Rubbish is slightly harsh, it's just not a particular style I like (example below)

I'd love it if we eventually got the western town and Big Al's.

He's also the concept artist of New Fantasyland, Epcot Ratatouille area, play pavilion, the Disneyland Rivers of America remake, Disneyland's 50th castle decor & MK's 50th castle decor.

The original concept artist for TSL (among other projects) revealed himself on Twitter recently. An interesting tidbit is that someone asked about the lack of shade and acknowledged it. Regardless, still sad we didn’t get the full land as originally visioned with the bridge over SDD and the western-Town and barn gift shop. Original tweet:

So you wouldn't want the video of me shining a strobe light at a passing sasquatch while recreating Everest?

Yeah... day 100... *shoves socks back into drawer :cautious:

Just wait until day 100 of your confinement: you'll be putting on a sock puppet version of Great Moments in History from the windows of your house!

It beats the homemade recreations of favourite rides. Please, no more. How many times can you film people going down the stairs in a laundry basket and call it Splash, Pirates, Frozenstrom ...?
