PHOTOS: Crews Top Off Tallest Point of TRON Lightcycle Run Illuminated Canopy at Magic Kingdom

The construction of the TRON Lightcycle / Run illuminated canopy has reached a milestone. Workers have placed an American flag at the canopy’s highest point. This “topping off” tradition signifies that vertical construction has reached its highest point.


Despite this milestone, the canopy structure is still months away from reaching completion. The attraction, originally slated to open for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, may not open until 2022 or later.


Located inside Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom, TRON Lightcycle / Run will allow guests to enter the world of TRON. Riders whiz beneath the massive, illuminated canopy before entering the show building. You can watch our POV video of TRON Lightcycle Power Run, TRON Lightcycle / Run’s sister coaster in Shanghai Disneyland, below.

When do you expect TRON Lightcycle / Run to open? Give us your best guess in the comments.
