PHOTOS: Latest Construction Update on TRON Lightcycle Run at the Magic Kingdom (1/22/20)

Today, we stopped by Magic Kingdom to see what’s been happening in The Grid. TRON Lightcycle Run is Tomorrowland’s upcoming coaster attraction and is set to open in 2021. There’s been a few changes since our last construction update, so let’s check them out.

One side of the show building is almost completely enclosed and panels are continuing to be added on the other side. The wall panels are being installed in a color pattern with varying shades of gray.

Workers were spotted on a lift hanging more panels.

From a different perspective on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, we were able to view more of the construction site.

More crew members on lifts were working on the wall panels.

Excavation work continues to happen around the coaster’s exterior track section. Building supplies are spread throughout the site. Concrete pillars with rebar rise in the midst of all the outdoor work. The site also now has multiple concrete pads with rebar. A concrete wall has been erected just past the outdoor track’s massive curve.

The most exciting addition to the site is the steel arch that sits above and behind the coaster’s launch section. This arch is where guests will enter the TRON Lightcycle Run queue. A platform now stands over the coaster’s launch and many crew members were seen working in that area.

If you can’t wait until TRON Lightcycle Run opens, you can get an idea of what to expect by watching our video of the sister attraction, TRON Lightcycle Power Run, in Shanghai Disneyland:

I’d be curious to learn why the imagineers decided to make the ride partially outdoors, since that would seem to break immersion. I wonder if they did this to distinguish it more from Space Mountain. I’d like to ride it, either way.
