PHOTOS: Evacuation Platforms, Even More Track Installed for TRON Coaster at the Magic Kingdom
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:
