Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin at Magic Kingdom
Do you want to join Buzz Lightyear and become a Junior Space Ranger whilst testing your skill and accuracy on his Space Ranger Spin? You do? Well, head along to Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, just across from the Transit Authority, and you will find Buzz Lightyear’ s Space Ranger Spin where battle takes place with the evil Emporor Zurg.
For four and a half minutes you can battle it out with giant robots, explore distant planets and save the universe by collecting points. Hop aboard your XP-38 Space Cruiser, which is equipped with two laser cannons and a joystick which spins your vehicle around. Travel through ten different scenes whilst shooting targets with your lasers. Your score increases on the dashboard of the vehicle whenever you hit a target.
The targets which provide the largest scores are the ones that are farthest away and high up. Also, try to shoot at anything that is moving, these are worth far more points than anything that is stationary.
Look out for the volcano, if you hit the top, it will erupt and it is worth 100, 000 points. In the room with the batteries, try to hit the ones at the bottom, some of these are worth 50, 000 points and will fall over when you hit them. Another tip is to aim at the small batteries; you will be awarded more points for these.
Before you exit the ride, check out your score on the Space Ranger chart to see which rank you have achieved. And don’t forget to look for your photograph. This will have been taken at the end the ride where Zurg has been captured. You are able to purchase these if you so wish. Another photo opportunity presents itself as you enter the shop. Zurg is behind bars and if you have small children in your party, they will be able to climb behind the bars also and there you have another photo memory.
If the thought of using lasers on a ride causes you any concern, please do not be alarmed. Disney assures guests that these lasers are the same kind that you would come into contact with on a daily basis, very much like the bar code scanners at your local supermarket.
Buzz Lightyear’ s Space Ranger Spin is a Fastpass ride. A good tip is to get your Fastpass and then ride the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. This is a great ride where you can put your feet up and have a little rest, before commencing battle.
Children and adults alike will love this interactive ride, and for those of you that are competitive, you will want to ride it again and again to try and increase your score! !
