Greetings, Programs! In just a few days, the TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at the Magic Kingdom has had a lot of construction, or coding if you will, done in the last few days.
Just last week, we saw the very first sections of the track being installed, and just the other day, we saw a particularly interesting curved piece of track that made us really excited to take our lightcycle around that corner. Yet overall, the track was far from even resembling a course we could ride on.
Today, we managed to get a great look at the massive progress that has been made in just a couple of days and we can see just how fast this coaster is really taking shape. Let’s take a closer look!
While riding on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, we got to see a lot more of the dips and curves that our lightcycle will be taking.
Some of the track pieces are still covered up with a plastic tarp here.
The coaster is sure to be pretty large, given how tall the support beams (that still need track assembled) are. Remember though, this attraction will be indoors, but due to the nature of the building process, the track is being constructed first, before the exterior.
If you’re wanting a closer look, head on over to The Barnstormer and you can see some more of the construction happening on the ground level from the queue line. You can also get a pretty good view while riding on the newly-reopened Tomorrowland Speedway.
Hopefully the next few days, we’ll see a lot more pieces of the track being added to this massive coaster.
The TRON attraction is set to open at Magic Kingdom park in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. Of course, if you can’t wait, you can watch our video of its sister attraction, TRON Lightcycle Power Run, from Shanghai Disneyland here:
