Toy Story Mania Ride Review
Toy Story Mania re-opened with a new ride entrance when Toy Story Land opened a few years ago. The former attraction’s entrance was located in Pixar Place. Unfortunately, that area closed to become a backstage portion of the park.
Toy Story Mania has always been a popular ride and meets to long wait times throughout the day.
I recommend riding in the early mornings or later evenings for less-than-average wait times. The majority of the queue is indoors, making it a nice place to escape in the event of rain. However, if it’s still raining after you exit, there are no other attractions with shelter in the nearby area.
The best time to ride Toy Story Mania is usually after 8:00 p.m. The line tends to clear out significantly as people prepare for evening entertainment.
When you get close to the ride load area, you’ll pick up a pair of 3D glasses to wear for this attraction. They enable you to see the dimensional elements projected on each gaming screen. Toy Story Mania has five different game screens:
- Hamm & Eggs
- Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts
- Green Army Men Shoot Camp
- Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers
- Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery
During each game, you’ll have the opportunity to beat your opponent and other riders in the car. Potentially, you might reach the highest score of the hour, day, or month. Those items are displayed toward the end when you are waiting to unload.
Toy Story Mania is a highly competitive game. Therefore, I always recommend looking up a few tips so you can show off your skills and kick your teenager’s rear end.
Imagine the look on their face now. The whole trip will be worth it! You’ll have bragging rights for months, possibly years to come.
