It’s Buzz Lightyear to the rescue! In our next Magic Kingdom Attraction Guide post, we’re looking at the shoot-em-up adventure located over on Tomorrowland’s main strip. Here are the parameters for this attraction:
Attraction Name: Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
Attraction Type: Slow Rides, Spinning
Height Requirements: None
Hours of Operation: All Day
From my experience, usually this attraction does not need a FastPass selection as the line isn’t usually that long, but FastPass is offered, so if you have one to burn, take advantage of it. The queue for this is fun, but not interactive, unless you count Buzz as interactive, as he does talk and move around. You are signing up to be a cadet to help Buzz fight the evil Emperor Zurg, and to do so, you will be in your specially designed spacecraft that spins so you can shoot all around you. For each target you hit, you’ll get points, and the higher your score, the better!
What is your high score on the game, or the high score of your kids? At the end, your score will help you determine what rank you achieve — my all time high score is 999,999, which, coincidentally, is the highest that the game will count to. Now, I’m not ace at flying and shooting to achieve that score — the ride stopped moving, but I was still able to shoot, and the points kept going up and up and up! So, definitely put an * next to that score for the record books, but it was fun anyway!
