Do you have what it takes to defend the galaxy from alien scum? I’m here to share with you 5 tips on how to get a high score on MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack—and earn your very own suit.

Short background on my qualifications: I started my Universal Orlando Resort career as a member of the Men in Black team more than six years ago.


While there, I learned quite a bit on how to get a high score, while also meeting my now husband at the attraction (aaww, obligatory love story). Anyway, on to the tips!

Tip #1 — Three Words: Pull the Trigger


The first is the easiest—press and hold the trigger and the gun continuously fires. Not only are you more likely to hit something, but you also get points just for firing the gun.

Tip #2 — Smaller Aliens = More Points


This one is pretty fun—finding all of the small hidden aliens that you give you tons of points. My favorites are the glowing eyes creeping on you from the bushes after the ambush scene.

Tip #3 — Stay on Target


Once you’ve found a target, stay on it and continuously shoot it. You’ll gain more points if you stay focused on one alien versus trying to shoot multiple ones… unless you’re up for a challenge.

Tip #4 — Shoot the Other Vehicle!


This one takes the most skill to master: shoot the other vehicle’s exhaust port. It’s the small, blinking blue light on top of the opposite vehicle. Hit this and you’re guaranteed big points, and you’ll also send them spinning!



This is near the end of the ride when you’re told to press the red button to blow up the big bug. Be the first in your car, and you’ll rack up a cool extra 100k.

Think you have what it takes to become a Galaxy Defender? Next time you come out to Universal Studios Florida, make your way to MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack and try these tips out yourself. You’ll earn your suit and glasses in no time.
