You’re the newest MIB recruit, on a mission to shoot down as many aliens as you can. While this attraction may feel dated to some guests (especially when you hear the soundtrack that plays around the entrance), it still has a massive fan base and many loyal riders.

This shooter-style ride earns itself two out of five astros in terms of fear factor – the ride motion gets a little bit crazy, and the accompanying aliens aren’t exactly adorable.

What was Men in Black Alien Attack’s opening date?

April 14, 2000

If extreme thrills are a requirement, this isn't the ride for you. This is a fairly tame ride, involving a few rapid spins but nothing that should cause motion sickness except perhaps in the most sensitive of riders. This is a bit like riding through a video or pinball game; you earn points by shooting aliens that pop up as you ride along. The scoring system adds a layer of challenge and competition without making it embarrassing for those who don't know where to aim there first time around. The decor has a retro 60s feel, a bit like Cabana Bay. This is not due to a failure to update the ride; it has a retro look BY DESIGN. It's fun in a playful, laid-back way (but still way more exciting than the majority of the rides you'd find in Disney's Magic Kingdom). And the interior queue is generally very cool, which is a plus when it's steaming hot outside!

We all had great hopes for this ride but were sorely disappointed!. The outside and reception look great but the ride itself was boring and very dated.... really needs a revamp to bring back the excitement of the films we think.

I went to universal Orlando in the summer of 2002 with my best friend that just graduated from high school. When we were walking around the park i saw the men in black alien attack and i got excited because I love that movie and want to go on it. So we went inside the building into the cue line area. I was impressed with the theming and decorating that was done to make it look realistic. I thought the line seemed to move very fast to get to the loading area. I like how the ride vehicle looked and the seats looked cool.

The ride was awesome the monsters looked realistic and the guns were fun to shoot. Also I like the fact that you can shoot the other vehicles target and spin them around in circles.

After the first time riding it I rode it five more times and every ride felt a little different. I would definitely recommend everybody to go on this ride even if you didn't see the movie because it is a lot of fun!!!
