Upon walking past this attraction, found in the “Land of Adventure” area, it’s at first hard to tell what this ride is. Because there is a wooden coaster next to it, some may assume the ride IS the coaster- in fact, it’s not. We did walk past it the first time until we finally asked someone where the “laser game/ride” was and they told us it was indeed that one.
I have been spolied by “Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin” and “Toy Story Mania” but this was kind of cheesy for a brand new Park as this is. First off, if you have ridden the above mentioned, you know you have a blaster, or controller, to aim at everything. This ride has one, but you can’t hold the button down and let it shoot- you have to keep pressing it. Also let’s talk about the target lights…if this is supposed to be geared for the “Younger” crowd, how do they honestly expect them to hit them? First off, they are small, and as an adult, I was having a hard time hitting them. Along the same lines, in the Disney attractions the target circles are nice and big, plus you can hit them as many times as you want and rack up the points. But here, if your partner hits it before you do, you can’t hit that one. So if you ride with someone who is a pro, you are basically sunk on getting any points for yourself. I also didn’t think there were many targets, so once we hit them, you just had to wait to get to the next room for more. It had great effects with what you DID hit, and it was fun to try a couple of times, but the cars are VERY small and I can’t imagine pooh sized guests being able to comfortably sit in this tiny car. To me it felt like one of those Carnival rides that has the small track and things jump out on you- or maybe it’s the neon that makes it a bit cheesy. It was cool for us to try because it was something new- but nothing that would make me run to Guest Relations to buy an Annual Pass. On a grading system, I would give this ride a “B/B-.”
