Just the other day, we showed you the first pictures of the coaster track supports that have been installed for the upcoming Tron roller coaster at Magic Kingdom. Yesterday, we took a trip out to the site to get a better view. A bit has changed since our last update.
Standing on top of the Contemporary Resort’s roof gives us a great view of the whole project. This is the only way to see the supports unobstructed.
It’s kind of amazing how quickly these support columns went up. It seems as though they’ve been working on the foundation forever, but that’s building a roller coaster in a swamp for ya’.
You can get a very different view from Storybook Circus. This photo was taken in the queue of The Barnstormer.
This is the closest we can get to the actual supports while in guest areas. This gives us a good idea of how high up the track will be. This looks to be one of the large outdoor turns, as seen here in our photo from the attraction as it is in Shanghai Disney.
From the Tomorrowland side, we get a good idea of the overall size of the foundation. The coaster track will probably be installed first, with the majority of the building then being installed around it.
It seems like a mess now, but they know what they’re doing. I’m very excited to finally experience this attraction stateside. It’s expected to be finished in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
