Ever experience the Toy Story Mania attraction at the Disney Parks? At the end of the ride…do you sit and ponder how in the heck guests get the high scores for the day and month? Well I did! So I set out on a search to find out how in the heck these “Toy Story Maniacs” score over 500,000 points.
Toy Story Midway Mania Ride Cheats – The Secret to Scoring Over 500,000 Points
Prefer to watch a video? Scroll to the bottom of this post.
If the line was a tad bit shorter, perhaps there would be more Toy Story Maniacs out there. After all practice makes perfect, right? There are a handful of videos on the internet showing guests how to achieve a score of over 500,000 and here’s a breakdown of the ride with all of the cheats or as they are also called “Easter Eggs”/Secrets.
The first hint for a high score is…ride alone! A pair of Toy Story Mania Mavens playing together will result in a tally of around 300,000 for each. There’s a lot of information circulating out in the Virtual Disneyshpere that references working with a partner. This is misinformation as your ride partner can steal your points resulting in less chances for you to achieve a high score.
Also..refrain from splattering characters in the beginning “Pie Throw Practice” round. You won’t be tallying any points and you will be wasting your energy.
Secret to High Score at the Hamm & Eggs Game In Toy Story Mania
Your first booth will be “Hamm & Eggs”. This is the booth where you launch plastic eggs at various barnyard characters. Hit the 500 point Gophers at the bottom of the screen and make sure to hit the fox on the hen house in the bottom corner as well. Next, you want to aim for the 100 point pigs on the lower fence. Once you’ve cleared them, a cat will appear in the same general area with a 500 point value. Continue to repeat the process and each time the cat target point value will increase from 500 to 1000 to 2000.
Avoid wasting time and energy on the ducks with 100 point values as well as the cows and pigs near the top of the screen with low 100 point values. Concentrate on unlocking the cat for maximum scoring power!
Your score for the “Hamm & Eggs” booth should be in the 50,000 point range.
Secret to High Score at the Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts Game In Toy Story Mania
Your second booth will be “Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts”. In this booth you will be launching darts at balloons.
Your strategy at this booth is to hit the 500 point lava stream balloons coming out of the volcano and the 1,000 point ballons nearby while waiting for a group of four 500 point lava balloons to appear at the volcano opening. Shoot them all. Six lava stream balloons will then appear. Shoot them all and the volcano will erupt with a flow of 500 point balloons. Once those are popped it’s time to tackle the meteors.
Clear the three meteors on the upper right and left hand corners of the screen.This will release a meteor shower of balloons for you to pop. Aim for the 5,000 point red ballon in the bunch of yellow balloons.
Your ideal score for the “Rex & Trixie’s Dino Dart” booth should be in the 70,000 point range.
Secret to High Score at the Green Army Men Shoot Camp Game In Toy Story Mania
Now you will be on your way to the “Green Army Men Shoot Camp”. You will be breaking plates with baseballs at this booth. At the start…break as many of the higher point plates that you can. Two 2000 point plates will pop up on each side of the horizon. Hit them. They aren’t static and will drop back down below the horizon if you don’t hit them.
Once this step is finished, the front of the mountain will sink to reveal a hidden army tank inside. After the army tank reveal…a wave of four 2000 point plates will pop up in succession on each side of the mountain. These too aren’t static and will drop back down below the horizon if you don’t hit them. Hit all eight 2000 point plates as well as the 5000 point plate that the tank shoots out at you and then repeat the process. Making sure to hit all of the plates that the newly revealed tank throws out a at you.
See if you can rack up 80,000 points at the “Green Army Men Shoot Camp” Booth.
Secret to High Score at the Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers Game In Toy Story Mania
Next up is “Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers”. At this booth you will be tossing rings.
Your first job is to ring all of the Little Green Men in the rocket ship in the center of the screen. When you ring one, it will pop down into the rocket ship. Your goal is to get all of the Little Green Men tucked safely away in the rocket ship so that it can launch. You have to be quick and get all of the Green Men safely inside! If one of these tiny aliens pops back up, the rocket will not launch. If you are successful in ringing all of the aliens fast enough, the rocket will launch and reveal a Gigantobot.
Gigantobot’s mouth will open and you can toss rings inside to score. The first point value for Gigantobot will be 100 points. Avoid the temptation to shoot your rings into Gigantobot’s mouth when the point value is 100 and concentrate on ringing the 1000 point rockets, planets, and jetpacks as well as the 5000 point aliens that drop down from the top of the screen. Gigantobot will close his mouth and will reopen it to reveal 500 points. Now is the time to shoot rings into Gigantobot’s mouth. His mouth will close and reopen two more times revealing 1000 points and then subsequently 2000 points. Shoot as quickly as you can and you will accumulate thousands of points at this booth.
Your score for this round of play will be in the 130,000 point range.
Secret to High Score at the Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery Game In Toy Story Mania
Last but not least is “Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery”, the Grand Finale Game. You will be throwing suction darts at bullseyes in this booth. There are three stages.
The First Stage – Try to clear the bullseyes in the center of the screen. Then move on to the gopher at the bottom and the barrels. When the 100 point bullseyes have been cleared they will reveal 500 and 1000 point bullseyes on the buildings. When those are cleared they will reveal 2000 point bullseyes near the bottom of the screen.
The Second Stage – Your carnival vehicle will then start to move horizontally. While moving, aim for the 500 and 1000 point bullseyes in the corner under the vultures’ tree. Clearing those will reveal 2000 point bullseyes. Repeat this process until you hit the next screen. Aim for the snakes in the center to rack up 2000 points. Also shoot the bullseyes at the bottom of the screen underneath the gophers for 500 and 1000 points.
The Third Stage – The Mine Carts are the third stage of the Grand Finale. Try to hit ALL of the Mine Carts and 1000 point bats. The carts will start with 500 point values, clear those and then move to the 1000 point carts. Next will be the 2000 point carts and then a few 5000 point carts. Your very last chance to score is the “Woody’s Bonus Roundup” in which a 500 point bullseye will pop up. Fire as fast as you can!! The bullseye will increase in point value the faster you shoot progressing from 500 to 1000 to 2000 points.
This is where you really accumulate points! In fact…you can easily rack up 175,000 points in this final round alone.
