On my usual lap around Tomorrowland on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, I checked out the construction progress of the newest coaster headed to Magic Kingdom, TRON Lightcycle Power Run.

Since our last update, you can see that a bit more track was added to that banked turn towards the front right of the photo, as well as what looks like some evacuation platforms and railings next to the brake run at the highest point of the track.

You can get a slightly better view of the newly installed railings and track from the queue at The Barnstormer.

You can see towards the back of the photo that there’s still a bit more track to be installed before it’s complete, but it’s been very exciting to see how quickly this project has started moving along. I felt like I was just checking in on the leveled ground and the foundation for so long, that all of this vertical progress that has happened within the past month has really made it feel like it’s speeding along now.

If you are looking to catch your own glimpse of the TRON construction in Magic Kingdom, the best places are from the PeopleMover and the queue of the Barnstormer.

The TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster is scheduled to open at Magic Kingdom 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 from Shanghai Disneyland here:

End of line.

Is this all there is to it? This looks like a very basic and mild coaster layout. I hope this is just the start. I know it’s similar to the system used on the Pony Express coaster at Knott’s (pretty lame in my opinion), but I was hoping for a whole lot more.

This ride is both indoors and outdoors so they build they track 1st and then the building around it. The long straight track at the top of the photos is where it goes indoors which has typical tron neons lights and sounds. Also the outside portion has a cover so this should be open in the rain.

I knew that, I was commenting on the track layout itself looks to be very basic and small unless this is just what has been done so far or you can’t see the rest in the photos.
