The New TRON Coaster at Magic Kingdom Is Inching Ever Closer To Launch
During our visit to Magic Kingdom today we notice that construction for the new TRON Lightcycle Run has really kicked it into hyperdrive! The building is starting to be constructed to house the indoor coaster and the track is fully in place.
Take a look at some of the awesome photos we were able to capture today from Barnstormer, Tomorrowland Speedway and the PeopleMover!
The steel structure for the building that will house this indoor coaster is already up and the walls are starting to be built.
Here’s a closer look at the wall panels being put in place.
As you can see some of the track still extends outward from the building.
Here you can see the tracks close proximity to Space Mountain!
Two large cranes are currently on site adding height and to move some of the larger pieces in place.
Here’s a better look at the vantage point that you get from the line at Barnstormer.
Here are the two cranes towering high above the PeopleMover.
And a closer look at one of those fierce turns.
You can see the as yet uncovered track even clearer from this angle!
Riders on Tomorrowland Speedway are treated to a pretty impressive view of construction!
TRON Lightcycle / Run is set to open at Magic Kingdom Park in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. It is a coster-style attraction that will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through a digital frontier! A similar attraction has already become a fan favorite at Shanghai Disneyland where it opened in 2016!
Though the impact of the construction to theme park visitors is minimal, the Walt Disney World Railroad is not currently making the rounds. Rather guests can view the train at the Main Street Station where it will be stationed until track adjustments are made!
