When Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom opened “Buzz Light Years Space Ranger Spin” (November 1998), the world of video games and dark rides collided.  Buzz Light Year is the original, leading the way to Buzz Light Year of Star Command (Disneyland) and Toy Story Midway Mania (California Adventure/Hollywood Studios) and countless shooting games at amusement parks across the country.

If you want to score the Max, you better be ready, the first 100,000 point target, the largest, is in the first room! Look for the BOXOBOT.  The big points are inside the robots left hand.

The story behind Buzz Lightyear is simple.  You are the newest “Star Command” recruit and are on your way to defend the “crystallic fusion cells” needed to power the space vehicles of the “Little Green Men”.   The “Evil Emperor Zurg” is looking to steal the “crystallic fusion cells” for his own use against Buzz Light Year.  It’s your opportunity to become a “Galactic Hero”.

With any game comes a score and with a score comes a competition….all friendly, of course.  The largest wager is usually a Dole Whip but mostly bragging rights.  If you’re like me, you want to have that high score.   At some point though, you start to notice your children’s scores are starting to rival yours.  Then that fateful day…your children pass your score!!!  If you have that high score every time, you can stop reading and don’t need to watch the video.  You rock, and no one will ever catch you.

If you’re still reading, I can help!!!  It’s time Mom and Dad get the 999999 Galactic Hero rank.  What’s the secret?  The secret is all in positioning.

Aim for the bottom of Zurg’s Ship, it’s worth 100,000 Points

There are at least 2 targets worth 100,000 points each, and if you position yourself correctly you can hit them at least 5 times each.  You find them and get 999999 – Galactic Hero.

First tip:  You want to be the first into the vehicle because the first 100,000 target is on the left of the vehicle (traveling forward).  If you’re on the right, you may be blocked by the person in the car in front of you and there are no points for the back of their head.  The first target comes up quickly, so be ready.  Second tip:  You need to control the spinner (which should be easy early in the ride).  Turn the vehicle slightly left and look for the first robot (Boxobot).  The target you want is the inside of his left hand.  If positioned well, you could hit this target 8 times, and that’s 800,000 in the first room.

You’ll find a 50,000 point target on top of the volcano in the second room, the second highest point total of any target.

The second 100,000 point target is in the third room located at the very bottom of Zurg’s ship.  It’s a little tricky to position, but you should be able to hit it before and after passing the ship.

Three targets, and that’s all you need to master Buzz Light Year Space Ranger Spin and become a Galactic Hero!
