Oh no, I meant the Monsters Inc coaster
It does seem like most coasters in Disney and Universal seem to be launched coasters now.
DHS is a hodgepodge because it was thrown together to try and keep Universal at bay. They used an Epcot pavilion, and a simulator ride from Disneyland and then figured out what to throw in from there.
Probably because a launch eliminates the need to try and hide a lift hill. RRR and Hulk are some of the few exceptions. Even Expedition Everest camouflages the lift as much as possible. Plus, launches enable usage of scenes and launching out of a "dangerous situation". Those are the only reasons that I can think of.

I thought that even in the cost reduced version there was supposed to be a few blocks and stuff after the second launch. But it looks like there are zero theming elements on the 2nd half of this coaster.
Yeah. Cheap. Disney is killing me with their costs and spending lately.
You're supposed to just be in awe that Disney put in a coaster.
This was the version Disney marketing posted back in April 2016. Looks like there's supposed to be another block tower on that end of the coaster unless it was cut.
Scaffolding for theming on the backside of Midway Mania building. Eventually the building will have the same look as the giant fence that blocks the CM garage:
It's testing and it's going almost slower than I thought (footage at 0:26):
Coming down that hill and turning the corner is going to be so anti-climactic. I'll be interested to see how fast we reach the top of that hill though as we'll get there from the second launch.
I’m amazed it’s taken so long. When was the first pull through? 4 months ago?
It’s hard to tell what a coaster will feel like from off ride videos but I agree, it looks a lot slower than expected.
Don’t judge speed from it, it’s cold out and still testing.
I'm thinking that that is close to operational speed.
Has this just started testing or is this people just finding out?
Heh, Andy' just a little kid, not an engineer. What did you people expect he'd be able to build?....Seriously though, Toy Story is an IP and land for "little" kids, not teenagers. I wouldn't expect any real speed or thrills.
I donno, when I was a kid I created some real crazy things in Roller Coaster Tycoon. Nothing that would be appropriate for a Disney park or any park for that matter.
