Each row of Slinky Dog’s automobiles accommodates two people. Each lap bar is height-adjustable for the rider and equipped with handles for clinging on.

Between the riders, a tiny plastic hump prevents sliding in any direction. The leg room appears to be ampler than on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

There is a bag in front of each seat, just between the lap bar, that passengers can use to keep their valuables while riding Slinky Dog Dash. Be sure not to leave anything when your ride is over.
