PHOTOS: Illuminated Canopy Framework Nearing Completion at TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom

The canopy framework at TRON Lightcycle / Run is almost complete. Once done, this will mark a major milestone for the delayed attraction.


Temporary supports around the coaster track now reach up to the sealed building.


Several pieces of the canopy framework are staged around the construction site, waiting for installation.


The canopy will curve downwards and then up to the show building. Only this last section of canopy remains to be installed.


After the canopy is installed, the temporary supports will be removed. Though it’s unclear how much construction will continue after that.


Interior construction has come to a halt. The exterior is being completed as the materials are on-site and the 3rd party contractor has to get paid for the job either way.


Once complete, the illuminated canopy will be a much more pleasant sight for Tomorrowland visitors than the current construction.


Tarp protects some sections of the coaster track and supports.


We can see the small pieces of white framework where the actual canopy will be attached, hiding the metal connectors.


Though TRON Lightcycle / Run will not be opening in time for Magic Kingdom’s 50th anniversary this year, it looks like we will at least have something nicer to look at by the time 2021 is done. Below is what the final canopy will look like along with the rest of Tomorrowland.
