Great ride. No thrills but well done
The lines get insanly long but there is alot to look at while you wait like all of the giant toys. The ride itself is really short but its alot of fun. I liked the carnival theme.
The ride is great and all. But me and my family had to wait in line for 2 hours, seriously its good but not that good. I would say to ride it if you have time. It is fun and its not too short, the effects are great, and its good for the whole family. I would rate it a 4.2.
Absolutely delightful. The effects are great, and the ride is fast-paced, exciting fun. Children will enjoy this for the characters from Toy Story (although fewer than they might expect are included) and adults will enjoy it because it is really incredibly fun.
Let me start off by saying that this is the most accurate shooter I have ever been on. The main reason is because of the video screens you can actually see where your shots are going. That being said, I enjoyed Buzz lightyear's shooter better because you can move your car around to shoot at exactly what you want to. Other than that though Toy story mania has much better shooting action. The qeue is very well done also. If you like shooters try to not miss this one. If you can, try to be there for the park opening and go to this ride first because later the line can be long ( I saw the sign say 120 minutes at one point in the day). Overall rating 4.25
Just might be the best queue I have ever seen. The ride itself is amazing and lots of fun. Hollywood Studios reeeally needed something like this. The accuracy of your shots are right on! A new favorite.
The Fastpass is one of disneys best perks. On this they run out very quickly. On my last visit I arrived at 12:00 the Fastpasses were gone. When we got to the ride the themeing looked good and seemed like it was going to be a unique expirence. The stand-by was suposedly 60 minutes. The line is very slow. If you get a hour wait on this you could but those same people on the line for the hulk and it would be about 30 minutes. When the line took us inside we saw the excellent themeing. You are suposedly shrunk down to a toy and go around andys bazillion dollar themed room. They entertain you with a animatronic Mr.Potato head. The line has a mean design, the make you think tje line is over then they send you to a short line. Onto the ride. The cramped yet, suprisingly comterable cars had a screen and two cannons on each side. The ride was built to shorten the wait by building numerous track options. The shooting effect on the 3D screen was diffrent. The ride was fairly long and has a seprate handicap boarding area to reduce line time. The obcects shot out change at every scene. At the end they have a bonus round. Shoot as fast as you can and the amount each shot is worth will increase. They give you the top 3 scores of the day and the top of the month at the end. On the last screen when they caculate your score you shoot confetti. Then the screen on the car gives you a animal ranking. Overall a good ride with a new expirence and great themeing. For the first time worth 70 minutes after that worth no more then 35. Tip go there first ride it if you like get a fastpass and come back later.(use if you get there at park opening)
Decent ride. It has excellent 3D, perfect shooting action, and re-rideability. However, I don'.t really think I would go out of my way to ride it again, and it'.s certainly not worth an hour wait. It'.s really just a 3D videogame with different screens. The ride itself just moves you from screen to screen and there isn'.t much to it besides that. It doesn'.t spin you around or move in any interesting way. Aside from the screens there isn'.t much to look at. I don'.t know...it'.s just lacking that special something. I am a big Disney fan, but this ride just seems to be a stop-gap attraction...a nice side-show. Compared to any classic Disney dark ride it falls short.
Toy Story Mania was definitely an attraction I was really looking forward to during my trip since I had heard nothing but positives regarding the ride. This simply was because it combines three things I like- shooting dark rides, 3-D, and the fact that it’s based on one of the all-time best cartoons. However, this was also probably one of the hardest rides of the trip for me to ride thanks to the ride’s massive popularity. Thankfully on the last day of my trip I got the privilege to experience this incredible attraction and was blown away.
Nestled in the very back of the park in a new Pixar Studios section of the park, Toy Story Mania looks absolutely stunning and really captures the whole feel of the popular movies. While the exterior looks nice, it’s the interior queue line that really amazed me with the theming. All along the walls were a variety of games such as Candy Land, checkers, Chutes and Ladders, just to name a few. But the crowing achievement of the line is the gigantic Mr. Potato Head animatronic that interacts with the audience telling kid-friendly jokes and asking questions. Eventually I made it through the long line and boarded this unique attraction.
But before describing the attraction, I’m going to talk about the wait times for this. Due to the immense popularity of this type of ride (since essentially anyone can and will do it since it’s not intense and incredibly fun), lines were extremely long for this during my trip, with the shortest wait I ever saw was 50 minutes and that was with pretty much every other attraction being a walk-on. This is an attraction that I would suggest using a fastpass, but they run out within 2 hours after opening so they are extremely difficult to get. If you are lucky and do get one, you get the privilege of avoiding a 90-120 minute wait.
Once boarding the comfortable ride vehicles, the ride begins and travels to a variety of scenes that really capture the whole carnival midway theme of the attraction. First the ride begins with a nice little practice target section, which I thought was a great idea since it let me get aquainted with the spring action shooter since instead of pressing a button or trigger to shoot, I had to pull a string and how hard I pulled affected the speed and trajectory. Following the training area is the real ride, which was incredibly well done. Many carnival games such as the egg toss, ring toss, balloon pop, shooting, and an exciting bonus round were included. My personal favorite was the egg toss, but that’s really only by the smallest of margins since the entire attraction is a masterpiece in my attraction. Each game adds variety to the attraction and the whole ride is really addictive and entertaining. Also, regarding the bonus round, be prepared to pull incredibly fast and just mindlessly shoot down the targets since this the scene were the real points are accumulated. Also, regarding the 3-D effects the attraction uses, they were absolutely incredible and they really made the attraction feel totally immersive and it just added an extra dimension of fun and amazement to the attraction. Not only were 3-D effects utilized, but also 4-D effects such as water sprayers were included as well.
Toy Story Mania truly is a masterpiece and one of Disney’s best attractions, combining the charm of Toy Story with a multi-sensory ride experience jam-packed with a ton of addictive games. Never was there a dull point throughout the entire attraction, and not only that, but it also was a very long ride, which made it just that much better. The only real downfall is the ride’s immense popularity that causes those incredibly long waits, but even after my 65 minute wait for this attraction I came off very pleased and thought the ride was definitely worth the wait. Only bettered by Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania is the park’s second best attraction and certainly one of the best on the entire Walt Disney World resort, only trailing Men in Black for the best ride in its genre.
This was my most anticipated ride of my last trip to Orlando, imagine my dissapointment when I reach the attraction to find a humoungous wait time with all fastpasses distributed...
The next day though I was there on opening and managed to get through the (quite hilarious) queue. The Mr Potato head can keep you entertained for the amount of time you can see and hear him, and you never know he might just talk to you! After that the queue goes a bit dull and bland but finally you get to the ride. And WHAT a ride. It lived up to all of my expectations and more. The 3D is immense to say the least, and the reactions to when you shoot at the images projected to the screen are quite fun. Also the voice overs by the different characters are hilarious, especially the army men. The guns on the cars are easy to use, but by the end you may have a sore arm due to the bonus round...
But all in all such a god ride and a fantastic addition to Disney'.s Hollywood Studios. Oh and so much better than who wants to be a millionaire, that was in the building previous to this ride.
