VIDEO: TRON Lightcycle Power Run Coaster Construction Now Visible from Inside the Magic Kingdom
If you walk the path between Storybook Circus and Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom (which is sadly still a smoking area), you can now see a fair amount of the land clearing and such related to the upcoming TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster.
There are some trees and shrubs in the way, but at several points (if you look beyond them), you can see the cleared plot and barriers set up in the water. It’s also interesting to now be able to see a monorail beam from within Storybook Circus.
Sadly, this is the best view we could provide without obnoxiously holding up traffic on the backstage road behind the Magic Kingdom (which we don’t recommend), but we expect to be able to see the actual ride construction from inside the park once that begins in a few months.
