Round and round you go... taking a spin with Slinky Dog!

What do dogs love and do best like no other animal can? Chasing their tale! No difference with this cute attraction where Slinky, from the Toy Story movies, is going around chasing his tale while entertaining the guests. Especially the younger once will love this attraction. Up to three people can take place in one of the 17 carts of Slinky's body. On top of each cart are two silver arches that give the effect of going back and fourth due to the up and down in the circular track.

Different from usual versions of this kind of attractions is that the track isn’t filled by a complete circle of carts seating guests, instead there is a small gap in the circle here. Right in front of it Slinky Dog’s tail is placed (with no seats) and right behind the gap Slinky Dog’s head (with no seats either) to give the impression that he chases his own tail once the ride starts moving. This impression is further emphasized as both elements (front and rear) feature two legs that move back and forth emulating a running motion once the ride starts turning. In addition Slinky Dog's tail is actually a real spring that will move around during the motion of the attraction.

The attraction theme includes a big cardboard box decorated with Slinky Dog advertisement from the 50's stating it's a “Collectors Edition”. The “box” is used as part of the queue area, an area that starts of straight after a wooden hut into a line formed by Lincoln Logs building blocks before entering the actual oversize cardboard toy box. The inside of the box has also been decorated. It has additional print related to the Slinky toy and a board game including cut out playing figures, rules and the actual board printed on the queue sealing. This is a feature not uncommon for toy box frames during that period. This board game was created by the Disney Imagineers and was even tested for playability. However, while waiting in line with other guests, it will be close to impossible to actually play the game with a crowd standing in the middle of the board itself.

At opening Slinky had floppy ears, but only weeks after opening they've been replaced with tougher and more durable materials that stay in place during the attraction's circular motions.

Lincoln Logs where first on sale back in 1916. John L. Wright was the inventor of the toy and it was marketed by the Red Square Toy Company and by John Lloyd Wright, Incorporated.
