New Game Inspired by “Toy Story 3″ Being Added to Park’s Popular “Midway Mania” Attraction
In an announcement made earlier today by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director for Disney Parks, was revealed “Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts,” a new game being added to the popular “Toy Story Midway Mania” attraction. Starting in May guests at both Disney’s California Adventure and Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be able to experience the new game, featuring characters from the upcoming Disney Pixar feature “Toy Story 3.”
Smith described the attraction; “The new Toy Story Mania! game, called “Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts,” will involve shooting virtual darts at all new balloon targets in a primeval world filled with volcanoes and lava balloons. You’ll be cheered on by Rex (the nervous Tyrannosaurus rex) and his new friend Trixie (a blue Triceratops, one of the toy characters from the new film) beginning in late May. Walt Disney Imagineering has also added some hidden surprises to the game that will be replacing “Bo Peep’s Baaa-loon Pop.”
Along with this exciting announcement, came the details of a new opportunity for park guests seeking to get up close & personal with one of the new “Toy Story 3″ characters. Starting May 9th in Disney’s Hollywood Studios park “Lotso” (short for Lots-O’-Huggin Bear) will be greeting Guests in the meet-and-greet area inside “The Magic of Disney Animation” building and will also be part of the “Block Party Bash” parade.
