Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
All right, Space Rangers, it’s time to help Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear defeat the evil Emperor Zurg! Buzz himself briefs new cadets before you’re sent into battle in a Day-Glo, comic book world of planets and space creatures. Your two-seat space vehicle (an “XP-37 Space Cruiser”) is equipped with a pair of “ion cannons” (laser pointers) mounted on the dashboard. Aim and shoot the electronic targets to accumulate points (aim for the higher targets for more points). Move the joystick to make your vehicle spin and home in on your targets. Compare your score at the end. Covered queue area is mostly indoors. Wheelchair accessible. Alex’s ToddlerTip: "It's fun to shoot targets." Allie’s KidTip: “Check your score. I made Space Cadet!”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.
Ages: Ages 3 & up
Thrill Factor: Mild
Track Ride Duration: 4 min.
Also Known As: Space Ranger Spin
KidTip: Check your score. I made Space Cadet!

This was my 7 year old son's favorite ride at Disney World. Our whole family, ages 5, 7, 10, 12, 41 and 45 enjoyed it!

Our family tries to ride this first, it tends to have short lines and can be rode multiple times in a row. Our youngest who doesn't ride bigger rides gets to have fun on this.

I think it is ok. I wish you could take out the guns and aim them like Disneyland's version. Everyone else in my family enjoys it.

This is one that my wife and I enjoy riding. The que can be a bit noisy when its crowded...but since it is a continuous load attraction the line keeps moving. A good, fun experience.

I can never find where my light is shooting. I never score well on this. I do much better on the Toy Story ride in Hollywood

TomiRocket gave this a rating of 7 on 06/24/2016 at 11:47:25 am EDT
This ride is always on our list because who doesn't want to beat your sibling's score? The line is usually quick and it's cool inside. It's kind of carnival like but there is so much going on. Kids love it.
sojeles gave this a rating of 8 on 06/23/2016 at 10:35:50 pm EDT
We all love this attraction--I do wish they didn't take the photo as you're trying to shoot, though. We all look SO intense!
E(ticket)lizabeth gave this a rating of 8 on 06/23/2016 at 2:11:51 pm EDT
Every time I have visited MK, I have walked right on this attraction repeatedly. My sons love it. It is a fun attraction, but needs to be updated.
todncopper gave this a rating of 6 on 06/22/2016 at 2:33:43 pm EDT
Kind of like an outdated version of Toy Story Mania so the line is usually relatively short. I'm sure if they update it it would much more fun.
2babiesandthemouse gave this a rating of 6 on 06/20/2016 at 10:43:21 am EDT
I would ride again but it very much needs an major update.
mickeyforlife gave this a rating of 3 on 06/19/2016 at 3:41:33 pm EDT
We love when the ride has a short line and can go on repeatedly to try to play from both sides of the car and to beat each others' scores. Needs some modernizing in the guns, but I hope they don't modernize anything else in this ride!
MissyMouse70 gave this a rating of 9 on 06/18/2016 at 9:08:41 pm EDT

It's fun, but frustrating as it's difficult to tell which lasers are yours. Still a fun ride. TSM is a better version of this.

Don't get the big attraction. It's a fun game, but not worth the wait.
KateLovesDisney gave this a rating of 6 on 06/16/2016 at 11:11:02 pm EDT
We have been to the Magic Kingdom many different times over the past 10 years and although our kids ages change, this ride is always a hit! Maybe it is the competitive nature of my family, but everyone likes to come out with the high score at the end of the ride. It usually ends with someone demanding a rematch, so we often ride it twice in a row.
Fergies6 gave this a rating of 9 on 06/16/2016 at 11:09:45 pm EDT
Love this ride - I wish it had a second track so that the wait wasn't so long but we just fast pass it to ride.

This is a great ride if you're into gaming or competitive. As you slowly move through the ride on a track, you shoot at targets along the way which ranks you with a level at the end.
