TSM. Buzz has gotten old and worn. TSM is more ecxiting with the change of shooting sites and variable screens to point on. The way it transitions it gives you more of an urgency to shoot and score before timing out.

TSM is more sophisticated, so in that sense it is a better ride, but I also think the pull string was a bit of a dumb choice. By the end of the ride, my arm hurts, and that's not a good feature.

Unfortunately, Buzz is WAY over-due for some significant repair work, AND a bit of a rehab. The ride is SO much better when I get a blaster that works properly. I have ridden it back to back many times, and the difference is stark! Beyond that, the sets look pretty dated and worn out to me. Keep the premise, but add more targets, and more range of motion to the blasters.

The example that comes to mind is MIB over at Universal. The only significant problem with MIB is that it spins too much, especially at the end. A small complaint is that the ride vehicles are ugly. The MIB are supposed to give off a 007-type cool persona, but the ride car isn't sleek in any way, except the maybe the blasters. But they are also looking a bit worn these days.

IMO, rides shouldn't leave riders sore or queasy. Ideally though...I'd really like to see a new game or two added to TSM.

Buzz is something I rarely want to ride. OTOH, I will never miss an opportunity to get on TSMM. Easy vote for me.

What does that even mean?

Not necessary.

That, I can get behind.

Read the warning signs and don't ride spinny rides then... If rides shouldn't make ANYone queezy, 95% of Universal's attractions would have to close.

I like both, but I think I'll have to give the edge towards Buzz. The use of more physical sets and animatronics helps, I think. Plus, the line is usually shorter than Toy Story Mania's... which really isn't saying much.

I also prefer the physical sets and props as targets, vs the screens.
I can play video games at home.
We love the buzz bgm......so great.

Toy story is fun but Buzz is a must do every trip.

This thread asked for an opinion, and I gave mine.

To me, your post quoting mine reads like perhaps you don't understand what an opinion is.

Then you posted something that reads like an attempt at condescension, which is just weird. This forum is just for lighthearted fun.

Nobody needs anyone else's permission to like/not like an attraction, or any portion of any attraction.

Cool. But nobody needs any permission to try and start conversations or debates either.
