TRON Lightcycle / Run has reached a major milestone at the Magic Kingdom as the first large piece of illuminated canopy has been installed at the site. Take a look at the installation progress below!

We saw the piece lowered down onto the supports in real time during our WDWNT Live YouTube stream from the Magic Kingdom.

The illuminated canopy will cover an outside portion of the roller coaster’s track.

Now that the piece has been lowered, all that’s left is to center it into place, and bolt it down.

Over by the side, we see where more pieces of canopy are being put together and staged for future installation.

TRON Lightcycle / Run is set to be completed in 2021, barring any further delays. The Magic Kingdom guidemap does declare the coaster is “Now Programming” which indicates that Disney is planning on opening it sooner rather than later. You can check out a full POV ride-through of Lightcycle / Run’s sister coaster in Shanghai by viewing our YouTube video below:

  1. Wish Disney would focus more on the quality of the ride experience than the souvenirs…struck me as a POORLY repackaged rock and roller coaster…
