PHOTOS: “The Grid” Roller Coaster Train Chase Lights Now Installed on TRON Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom
Electrical work is underway on the TRON Lightcycle / Run canopy at Magic Kingdom to create its future illuminated effect. Lights and wiring are being installed along the framework before the canopy is covered.
Perforated steel pieces have been installed on the edge of the canopy framework.
Several crew members on cherry-picker vehicles were working inside the canopy.
This crew member was painting some sections yellow as a marker.
In this close up, we can see that the steel pieces running across the white frame now have LED bars of light installed own the underneath of them. These bars should look familiar to anyone who has seen the Shanghai attraction at night.
The bar lights will come on as the roller coaster trains zoom past, as seen in these images from Shanghai Disneyland’s TRON Lightcycle Power Run.
A new arm has also been installed on one leg of the track, with wiring hanging from it for now. We suspect this will, at some point, support netting under the track.
The triangular arm sticks out on both sides of the track’s leg.
