April 8, 2006 – The Attraction Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast Opens in Disneyland Paris
“Blast off into space and help Buzz defeat Zurg in this intergalactic laser-shooting gallery.”
On April 8, 2006, the Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast attraction opened in Disneyland Paris’ Discoveryland area. The attraction is similar to the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters attraction that opened in Disneyland in 2005, itself based on the Walt Disney World attraction Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, which opened in 1998. Guests spin around a course, using “space cannons” equipped with lasers to shoot various targets laid out by Buzz Lightyear’s nemesis, the evil Emperor Zurg. At the end, guests are given their Star Command ranking, ranging from Space Cadet to Galactic Hero.
