Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (also known as Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger SpinBuzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters or Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster depending on the park) is an attraction that appears at Anaheim, California, Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Other versions of the attraction can be found at Disneyland Paris as Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast. It is based off Tokyo Disneyland's Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters attraction, but has some changes.

Premise

Guests board a "XP-40 Space Cruiser" armed with two infrared guns, "Astro Blasters," which takes them through scenes in space featuring characters Buzz Lightyear and Evil Emperor Zurg. Guests must shoot at differently-shaped targets, worth different amounts of points depending on the shape of the target. The Space Cruisers take guests through Star Command, to Zurg's ship, and then to Planet Z, through a lightspeed tunnel similar to that of Star Tours, and into a final battle between Buzz and Zurg.

Targets

  • Circle- 100 points
  • Square- 1,000 points
  • Diamond- 5,000 points
  • Triangle- 10,000 or more points

It has been said that there are secret targets throughout the attraction. Here are a few:

  • In both the scenes with Audio-Animatronic Zurg, there are hidden targets inbetween his chestplates.
  • On the right and left sides, and on the ceiling of the black tunnel with the horizontal running lights.

Disneyland History

Magic Kingdom

The Buzz Lightyear attractions are a series of attractions based on the Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 2 at Walt Disney Parks around the world. Although each ride may have a different name, all share the same plot and major characters. As each form of the attraction appeared, new technology has allowed the guests to better interact with the ride and even connect with personal computer users.

The attractions use a third-generation Omnimover system, and are a combination of a shooting gallery and a dark ride. The first ride featured laser guns that were not movable, but later versions featured the funs that are held in a holster and movable with the exception of a cord to keep them in the vehicle after the ride has ended. In 2005, the Walt Disney Company premiered a home version of the ride in the form of an internet video game that allowed users to connect with guests at the park. The scores of each guest from the dark ride are tallied with the internet gamer and increase the points won. There is also an attraction at Walt Disney World Resort's DisneyQuest with the bame "Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters", where players ride and control cars while shooting balls at each other.

Trivia

  • Magic Kingdom's version was actually the first version to come out. It opened in 1998 and was named Space Ranger Spin. Because it came out a year before Toy Story 2, Zurg's voice was not yet finalised.
