Toy Story 3 Adds Changes to Midway Mania!

TOY STORY 3 CHARACTERS JOIN MIDWAY MANIA RIDE

Disney announced last week that the Toy Story Midway Mania! attraction at Disney’s California Adventure and Disney’s Hollywood Studios parks will get a new game and other changes in late May featuring new characters from the upcoming Toy Story 3 film.

On the Disney’s California Adventure ride, visitors go on carriages that transport them to compete in front of a series of 4-D video games based on the movie series.

Creators designed the ride so that games could easily be swapped out or updated, possibly for holidays. Next month, a new game will be added for the first time since the ride opened in June 2008, said John McClintock, a Disneyland Resort spokesman.

The new game is called “Rex and Trixie’s Dino Darts,” which has riders shoot virtual darts at balloon targets. The game will replace “Bo Peep’s Baaa-loon Pop” in late May. A firm date has yet to be released, McClintock said. Trixie is a new dinosaur character in “Toy Story 3″ who will befriend Rex.

Other new characters from “Toy Story 3,” set to be released June 18, also will appear in different scenes within Toy Story Mania!

In addition to the new game, a new character from “Toy Story 3,” called Lotso, is set to join the cast at Disney’s California Adventure starting Sunday. Lotso, short for Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear, will join the Pixar Play Parade and greet visitors.
