The train looks fantastic! Can't wait for this ride and the land that comes with it to open.

The trains look great; just the level of detail to expect when Disney brings a movie to life. I've been really behind on this project and I'm really impressed with how the coaster is turning out. Should be a fun ride for kids and adults!

I'm kinda disappointed.
The train isn't anything special anymore nowadays. I'd expect Disney to go big and get a moving head and eyes on that thing, even if it's just subtle looking around from left to right when going on a straight. It's a comic thing and lives from animation. I wouldn't call it detailed when it's basically just three colors and the correct shape.

Whoops.. :angel:

Is it just me or are the Toy Story life size characters that walk around some of the more creepy ones you've seen at theme parks? Don't get me wrong, I love Toy Story, but something about their unchangeable facial expressions is just off putting to me in a clown/Chuckie kind of way...

That being said, I am actually super stoked to see how this Slinky Dog coaster finishes up. Nice job on the trains!

Donkeys are my way of life!

I was hoping we would see what kind of restraints it'll use since it's a Mack launcher and there doesn't seem to be room for the standard overhead restraints. The 3D renderings suggested lap bars but you can't always be certain with concept art.

The trains look great otherwise.
