Toy Story Midway Mania is a fantastic, fun ride that is not to be missed. Mr. Potato head serves as a “Carnival Barker” over the queue, interacting with guests, cracking jokes and occasionally having a body part pop loose. After going through the main part of the queue, you grab a pair of 3-D glasses and get ready to enter the ride vehicle. Each car takes 4 guests. What’s unique is that you’re sitting back to back, with a tall partition between you. Once you’re on your way, you’ll be facing your own set of targets while whoever is behind you is facing the opposite way and shooting at their own targets. It really is the same as having two completely independent vehicles combined into one. You have a toy cannon that fires via a pull string. You take aim at the targets at the game booths you encounter along the way. Cheering you on will be Woody, Buzz, Rex, Hamm and the Green Army Men. Find a hidden target and you’ll rack up even more points as you compete for the highest score. The targets and weapons vary. What’s even more fun is feeling the rush of air as you pop balloons at one of the game booths. This ride is all about the details and not a single one was overlooked.
