70 Days: Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin!

Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin

Buzz Lightyear vs. Zurg. It’s the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin!

Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day70 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today is exactly 10 weeks until our trip, and for this day, we are looking at the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin attraction, located in Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom park!  This is a family favorite of ours because it features a great movie, some fun action, usually not very long lines, and arcade action to see who can get the high score!

What is your high score in the ride?  I actually maxed it out once at 999,999!  Now, I didn’t do that because I am this ace shooting expert; no, there was a malfunction and the ride stopped, but the guns still worked, so I was able to keep hitting the same target over and over again, and that’s how I got to that score!

“Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!”

It’s very important that you listen to all that Buzz has to tell you when you are in line to get on the ride, because he may have one tip that can help you achieve that superstar score!  It’s all about defeating Zurg, of course, and with all of us working together, I’m certain we can do just that!

“We are eternally grateful.”

Make sure you don’t shoot these guys, though, we don’t want anyone getting hurt!

Yay! We caught Zurg, and two of his Minions, too!

See, I told you we could catch Zurg!  Looks like we caught two of his minions, too!  No wonder they look so gloomy…

Thank you for stopping by today, and please, let me know your high score on the game, and also whether or not you ride this or skip on by.  Thanks, and please go make it a Disney Day!

Located in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park, the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters attraction is similar to the attraction at Walt Disney World that I looked at for our 30 things to do series!

The obvious difference is that the name is different — Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters versus Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin.  Also, though, and this may be the biggest difference, is that the ride vehicle you are in at Disneyland has removable guns, so you can shoot over your shoulder, to the left or right of your vehicle, whatever you want to within reason.  I think this fact may make for higher scores — and makes me wonder if the rankings at the end have higher score expectations as a result.  But that’s my analytical side coming out, so we’ll ignore it.

Do you and your family like Buzz Lightyear at Disneyland?  If so, please let me know in the comments, and if not, please let me know what you don’t like about it.  Thanks for stopping by, now go get Zurg!

30 Things To Do At Disney World: Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Buzz Lightyear in the Queue for the attraction!

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is a shooting game located in Tomorrowland.  This ride is really a lot of fun because two people can fit in a pod, and both of you are shooting at targets.  The guns are laser pointer type guns, so the more targets you hit, the higher your score!  My all time high score is one that I doubt I’ll ever match again: 999,999.  To get that score, you really need to have your A game.  In my case, I got lucky.  The ride stopped, but the guns still worked, so I was able to keep hitting the targets, and that was how I got to the top score!

Usually when I do the ride, I get between 100,000-200,000 points, so I’m okay, but not great.

My daughter enjoys this ride, and every time we ride it, she always insists on getting a picture similar to this one.  Every time…

Sophie in jail with Zurg!
