    Buzz lightyear spin

    I have a bet with my wife on who can score higher on the ride when we go back down to WDW. So I was wondering which tragets have the highest points? You see I have to cheat because she beats me everytime and the score is not even close.

    I never win because my gun is always broken. (That's my excuse) Can't wait to hear others answers though!

    I remember reading about a target that will get you to max out your score. I really don't remember where I saw it or what not. However, here's an article that may help you:

    Be forewarned that this ride is just not the same when you know you can reliably max out the score.

    I guess you could consider this a spoiler, so . . .

    I know of three 100,000 point targets.

    In the first room there's a huge Rock-Em Sock-Em robot. The target on the inside of the robot's left fist is worth 100k. It is easier to hit from the left side of the car than the right, and it's possible to rotate to an angle so that the rider on the right can't it it at all - if you're really that desperate to win...

    In the same room, suspended over the door through which you exit, is a mechanical claw with a target in the center. This target is also worth 100,000, and you can most easily hit it facing back from the volcano room after you've passed through the doorway.

    After you leave the volcano room, you'll pass through what feels like a hallway, and make a right turn, and once you make it around that turn you'll see Zurg's spaceship on your right. There's a target at the bottom of the ship, above the spinning flame, that is worth 100,000. Note that you can only hit this target when you are entering or leaving that room. When you are directly in front, the target is too low to hit because the gun will only angle so far down.

    Other than that, there are two targets on the volcano worth 25,000 or 50,000 (or maybe one of each, I can't remember). And in the speed tunnel, there's a kind of blurry projection of what looks like Zurg's ship that bounces back and forth over the exit doorway. There is a sensor worth 25,000 (I think) right around the spot where this ship comes momentarily to rest on the left side of the doorway.

    Did this in May. And I have no idea how it happened.

    Re: Buzz lightyear spin

    I have done 999,999 once in my life and i was the first in my very competitive family to do so! And i am the youngest in my family with a older brother so i got the bragging rights and the strange thing about it was i had no clue what i hint and i was like right when we got in to the first room! It was nice being to only one to do so in the family until my bro and dad got it and now my mom is the only one yet to do so. But we think what I hit was either the claw going at the end of the first room of the robots fist.



    and this in my 1,000 post! yay me!!
