Go! Go! Go!... get ready to jump out of the airplane and parachute down to the Toy Story Playland in company of the green army men...

Guest can take place in one of the 6 seats on each of the 6 parachutes on this attraction. The seats are back to back and therefore offer room to 3 people on each side. A seatbelt and lap bar is used to secure the riders before taking off into the sky. Several times during the ride experience guests will be pulled up and dropped again, giving a short feeling as if you are falling down the sky only protected by the parachute above you. The sequence is repeated multiple times with some alternations where pull ups go higher or lower and drops go faster or more often. Commands are blasting through the speakers making sure you're a good army man yourself while riding the attraction.

The attraction offers space to up to 36 guests at the time making this a slow moving attraction. Unloading and loading the attraction takes more time then the ride experience itself, making the queue lines form soon after park opening and will surpass the one hour mark very early in the day.

Luckily there is a lot to look at in the queue area. You start of next to the small green guard house where a Cast Member, known as a “greeter” welcomes the guests and will inform them about the ride restrictions when needed. Across from the guard house stands the baby monitor, known from the very first Toy Story movie where the green army men used it to communicate and warn each other on the return of Andy, the owner of the toys. In the queue area guest have a good view of the action and will be able to see and experience the ride from a different angle. An angle that might make some of the guest opt out riding the attraction, especially if height is one of your fears. The queue area offers some other decorations and theme-ing to look at. Those include oversize plastic army toys and a oversize toy jeep.
