With the Tomorrowland Speedway opening back up in under a month, it’s a race to the finish line for final project completion. Most recent changes we’ve noticed as of late have leaned on the aesthetic, with bright new teal paint gracing the handrails and a new color scheme coming to the ride’s entrance/queue building. Many of you have been wondering whether this classic attraction (albeit a divisive one) would “survive” the changes being made to it, and today, we’re happy to report that the ride track, while shortened, has remained mostly the same.
We took to our favorite attraction, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, for an impromptu aerial view of the construction:
Back in January, entire chunks of the track had been removed to accommodate for Tron construction out back.
Before this, the track layout had undergone alterations in 2011 for the introduction of Storybook Circus. While this seems to be a larger alteration, thankfully the changes weren’t huge.
That back turn was shortened, but the route has remained the same.
We had some hope seeing as though they’d left some of the older trees that lined the track layout. (See the older construction photo below for reference.)
With the track layout finally paved over once again, we should be blessed with the grand re-opening of the Tomorrowland Speedway (along with the noise and noxious fumes) soon enough. The Tomorrowland Speedway is set to reopen May 18th and the TRON Roller Coaster is set to open in 2021.
