PHOTOS: Huge New Supports Installed for TRON Coaster at the Magic Kingdom
Work is just zipping along at the site for the upcoming TRON rollercoaster in the Magic Kingdom. Much like a sunflower, once the seed started sprouting, it’s shot up straight to the sky. Literally just the other day, we showed you some new track pieces that were being installed, as well as new evacuation platforms at the hold points along the track. Now, overnight, some very tall new supports have been installed and it looks like they’re not done with them yet!
The supports on the right are, obviously, the new ones. We’re not sure what these are for yet, be it extra support for the track or possibly for the building/canopy that will surround the coaster. Either way, they’re already the tallest point on the project so far.
The crane was even lifting some more pieces into place while we were there.
It’s always interesting to watch them actually install this stuff. So often it happens when guests aren’t watching.
You can see that the track pieces aren’t nearly finished yet. There’s still quite a bit to install. The entire track will most likely be finished before the outer structure is built around it.
The new TRON attraction is planned to be finished at Magic Kingdom in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. It’ll be here sooner than you think!
As always, you can check out our video of the original attraction at Shanghai Disney right here:
