Despite rumors that the project is delayed and will not open in time for Magic Kingdom’s 50th anniversary, construction continues on TRON Lightcycle / Run.
Several canopy pieces were visible waiting for installation when we visited the construction site.
The curved white pieces next to the track create a framework for canopy, while the other supports are temporary.
There’s now scaffolding covering a portion of the show building where riders will enter “The Grid.” Paneling is being added to this final section of the building.
Workers were securing parts of the canopy already installed above the track.
As we watched, a new beam was moved across the site.
A lot of the canopy framework is complete, but there’s still plenty of work to be done.
