My back and neck were still a little stiff from my Speedway drive with Hanna, but that wouldn’t stop us from continuing on through Tomorrowland. I’m not a Space Mountain fan but some of my family are so we made a stop for them to get their fix. Once that was done we headed over to an attraction more my speed and enjoyable for the kids.
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. Now I was concerned when I first rode this years ago because the famous Tea Cups are my worst nightmare. I hate being dizzy and with Spin in the title of this attraction had me worried. But it’s nothing like the Tea Cups. This is really more like laser tag but you are sitting in a ride vehicle taking you through the alien attack and you need to zap as many evildoers as you can.
You accumulate points for each alien you zap and at the end it’s always fun to see your final score ranked against the rest of your family. Once the ride is over you exit into a photo preview room where you can see your picture mid-ride along with your final scores. Then just beside the exit doors is another new 8-design touch screen machine.
This is the same price as the others, 1 design for $1 or all 8 for $5. This machine also supplies the blank tokens that the designs are pressed on.
This set included a lot of Buzz Lightyear with a few other characters. They include images of Little Green Toy Alien, Buzz Flying to the Right, Buzz with his Arms Raised, Buzz Pointing to the Sky, Buzz Flying straight Ahead, Buzz Space Ranger Spin Logo, Buzz with his Arms crossed, and Evil Zurg. Wow that’s a lot of Buzz!
It was getting dark and the kids (and adults) were starting to get cranky so it was our queue to head back to our resort to rest. But I promise there were many more penny machines to find and I’ll walk you by all of them.
