Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin – Magic Kingdom – Attraction Checklist #112

February 15, 2021 |

http://www.attractionchecklist.com – This episode we visit Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to ride Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin! Recorded on October 29, 2016.

TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

We joined up with Star Command back in episode #107 when we rode Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters and now it’s time to reenlist as we ride Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

The guide map describe Space Ranger Spin by saying: Fire lasers to defeat Zurg in this shooting gallery-inspired game.  There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes this as a Spinning, Slow Ride.  FastPass+ is available for this attraction.

Before we ride, here are five fast facts about Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.

1. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin officially opened in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland on November 3, 1998.

2. Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin replaced the Dreamflight attraction.  A few small pieces of Dreamflight remain.  The hyperspace tunnel is original and two chickens from Dreamflight got an alien makeover and can still be spotted in one of the attraction’s scenes.

3. Frank Welker provides the voice of Emperor Zurg in this attraction and Pat Fraley voices our hero, Buzz Lightyear.

4. If you look closely at the batteries featured throughout the ride, the batteries, Zurg is trying to steal, you’ll notice they say Made In Glendale on them.  A nod to Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, CA.

5. The Tomorrowland Transit Authority’s Peoplemover passes right through the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin building and if you take a break from your laser blasting and look up you might just see it pass by! 

Let’s go for a ride on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin!  After the ride audio, I’ll give you my thoughts on this attraction.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we experience Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Magic Kingdom.
