Construction Update: Details Added to Grounds Around TRON Coaster
It’s all down to those little details that make a Disney attraction so magical! Our MickeyBlogger was at the Magic Kingdom this morning and hopped aboard the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover to see how construction is coming along on the TRON Coaster in Tomorrowland.
This futuristic coaster will give guests the feeling that you are soaring through cyberspace with a recreation of the lightcycles from the TRON films. Disney has previously said that the attraction will open up in Early 2023 though no specific date has been given.
We’re optimistic that this project is on schedule as it looks like its all down to the finishing touches before soft opening!
In today’s images, you can clearly see the tunnel, housed under the TRON Coaster, which will serve the Walt Disney World Railroad. The railroad has been closed since construction started on the TRON Coaster as the site of the new thrill ride overlaps with the train route.
If you’ve been following along with us, you’ll also know that testing on the Walt Disney World Railroad trains has started! We hope to hear news about it resuming service soon!
The TRON Coaster sits behind Spaceship Earth and the Light & Power Co and is next to Tomorrowland Speedway.
You can see that a divider wall between the coaster and speedway has been put into place.
Futuristic lampposts have also been added since our last visit.
Some landscaping has even been planet on the grounds of the attraction to fill the cement planters that were recently built.
We love the streamlined curves and smooth look of the TRON Coaster.
We’re hoping that Disney announces an opening date for the attraction soon.
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely.
