Ride along in (manual) spinning two-person cars while shooting targets throughout the ride. It's like a life-sized video game. But make sure you go with two people. It's a much more interactive and fun ride with two people. Plus someone has to control both the spinning, and the shooting. It's good to trade off on who controls the car... or to throw off the other person's aim if you're like that!

Disabled Guests: Get in the standard line and proceed into the building. At the boarding area is a door to the disabled boarding area. This ride does have a moving walk way so it may be better to board in the disabled boarding area. Guests may remain in their wheelchair for this ride. Guess in ECVs must transfer to a wheelchair or load normally.

Persons with sensory issues should check out videos of this ride first as it does have a flash photograph taken of guests, flashing lights and noises. Like being in an arcade game.

Good ride and no line when we went. My son wasn't a huge fan at 2 years old but I enjoyed it.

It's a fun ride. The spinning and challenge of hitting the targets is what keeps people coming back to this attraction. Although Toy Story Mania in DCA presents a more modern version of this type of attraction, Buzz Lightyear still holds its own.

This is the best "shooter" type ride that I have seen. The fact you can control your carts spinning is a welcome addition and I find the guns to be more reliable than what I have seen at other parks. I also like that they provide a chart that give you an idea how good your score was compared to other people. The Buzz Lightyear theming with a blaster ensures it is nothing scary for small kids but is still fun for an adult. (8/10)

My favourite ride at Disneyland, or at least one of them. Hidden bonus: the ride stops for about five seconds to allow disabled people to board, so it's a brief chance to focus your aim at a high-point target and let lasers fly.
