Disney Releases More Details About the Tron Coaster Coming to the Magic Kingdom
Last summer, Disney released details of the sci-fi-themed Tron coaster attraction which will be heading to Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. We are pleased to share with our MickeyBlog readers that further exciting details have been released on what is sure to be one of the most exciting new happenings at Disney World in the years to come.
Though no opening date has officially be given, the Tron attraction is set to debut in time for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration in 2021. The attraction will be based on the wildly popular TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland. This coaster-style attraction allows riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a race through a digital landscape.
Visitors to Storybook Circus may start to notice construction on this new headlining attraction. The Tron coaster will occupy a new are of the park next to Space Mountain. As a result, Disney announced this week that they will need to make a few modifications to neighbouring attractions.
The Walt Disney World Railroad will stop its grand-circle tours of the Magic Kingdom starting in December. Instead, it will take up residence at Main Street Station where guests will be able to get up close to this iconic mode of transportation with fun photo ops!
In addition, the Tomorrowland Speedway will close for a bit in 2019. The Speedway’s track will need to be adjusted to accommodate the new attraction. However, it will still re-open as the same attraction that Disney guests have come to know and love.
Keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest updates about the Tron coaster and other exciting attractions heading to Walt Disney World in the years ahead. This includes a Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot, a Ratatouille ride also at Epcot and a Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Hollywood Studios!
