    Astro Blasters vs Space Ranger Spin - which do you prefer?

    I think I know what most of the answers to this thread will be, but I'm curious. I know the differences, but want to know your opinion on the rides.

    I prefer BLAB.

    have only done BLAB, so I'd have to go w/ BLAB not knowing the other version.

    Yeah, the mounted guns are a big disadvantage. I just don't like that the guns at DL fall out of the holster. :/

    I think its a huge improvement on our version to get the blinking lights on the targets and vibration on the gun as a sort of "payoff" for your direct hits. In florida, you don't know if you hit something or not, you just have your score to go by. Also, that wrap-around video screen thing was kinda weird. In the end, I think we win!

    The differences between the rides, I think, are only:
    Astro Blaster: better guns with more movements

    Space Ranger Spin: Two big omnimax tv screens, I think. Don't remember to much, but I believe it had an extra scene.

    While Space Ranger Spin is nice I prefer Astro Blasters by far, light up targets, removable guns, and a free picture you can e-mail home.

    Re: Astro Blasters vs Space Ranger Spin - which do you prefer?

    If I went to FL's Buzz ride, I would say that BLAB is better.

    I read somewhere that when WDI designed the ride for FL, they thought the guests would like the spinning part more so they made vehicles with mounted guns. When they found out that the guests use the spins to get better shots, they decided to make a newer version of the ride with the guns we have now.

    Not sure if it's true but if it is, then i'm glad ours didn't have mounted guns on it.

    I know that ours is a complete Tokyo clone, but is the Hong Kong version any different?

    I've been on both versions, and Astro Blasters is better.

    Good question. Probably another tokyo clone too. In a way that their Space Mountain is the California Clone.

    Theirs is the OLD California clone. I'm pretty sure they didn't get the track replacement when they got the big refurb. Their track is the Disneyland pre-2005 track.

    Wait, I thought their space was based on our refurbed space and had effects that we didn't have.
