Disney's looking to its own theme parks for new video game opportunities, bringing its interactive Toy Story-branded theme park attraction to the Wii. The publisher will be officially announcing Toy Story Midway Mania! later tonight.
The attraction, which gives theme park goers wearing 3D glasses a vehicle mounted cannon, has been available at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida and California Adventure in California since 2008. The ride recreates a series of six classic carnival midway mini-games, mostly involving the throwing of some thing at some other thing, but with required precision and cartoon zaniness.
Toy Story Midway Mania! features well-known characters like Mr. Potato Head and Buzz Lightyear, as well as real-world games and toys like Candy Land and the ViewMaster. We'd expect to see much of the same in the video game version.
Expect further details on the umpteenth Wii mini-game comp soon.
