Slinky Dog Dash is a roller coaster attraction located within Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.[1][2] It opened on June 30, 2018. Slinky Dog Dash is one of two new rides in Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the other being Alien Swirling Saucers.[3][4]

The story of the ride is that Andy has built a roller coaster using his "Dash & Dodge Mega Coaster Kit"[5] and decided to use Slinky Dog as the ride vehicle. The ride can accommodate up to four trains at a time.[3][4] This attraction concludes with a performance by the first ever audio-animatronic of Wheezy the Penguin[6] who serenades guests at the Big Finale on the final brake run. Wheezy's singing voice on the ride was voiced by actor Sean Kenin, impersonating the late Robert Goulet.[7]
