The Official Word
If you’re interested in the official spiel, here’s how Disney’s site describes the attraction:
Not Today, Zurg!
Buzz Lightyear’s arch-nemesis from Toy Story 2 is stealing batteries from helpless toys to power a new weapon of destruction. Become a Junior Space Ranger and help stop Zurg!
Board your XP-37 star cruiser and voyage deep into the Gamma Quadrant, where you’ll take aim at the glowing “Z” targets with your infrared laser cannon. Use your cruiser’s joystick to spin a full 360 degrees, so you can blast all the targets in sight.
Do you have what it takes to stop Zurg and his rampaging robot army before it’s too late? The fate of the universe is in your hands!
Know Before You Go
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is dark, slow-moving and suitable for all ages.Official Disney World Website
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is a fun attraction for the whole family in Tomorrowland. I enjoy the competitive aspect of this attraction as well as the photo they take when you ride! Something that I find fun is that the People Mover runs through part of it so be sure to look for that when you ride the People Mover!
