08 04 2008
A new theme park attraction may have Britons booking their flights to Florida this week, after it was revealed that the new ride is based on the popular Disney Pixar Toy Story brand.
Toy Story Mania! is due to be launched this summer at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
An interactive ride-game attraction, Toy Story Mania! is aimed at all ages and abilities. Guests are welcomed onto the ride by an audio-animatronic Mr Potato Head before donning their 3-D glasses and travelling on a tram ride at the "size" of a toy.
"The exciting and colourful route takes guests through "Andy's Bedroom" filled with oversized murals and toys. The vehicles spin to face Toy Story Mania! game booths - high-tech yet rooted in classic midway games of skill," the organisers note.
Games include use of spring-action shooters which are used to hit targets in interactive games.
Toy Story Mania! is accompanied by musical variations of the films' theme music Randy Newman's You've Got A Friend in Me.
