BREAKING: Interior Construction Has Resumed on TRON Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom, Props Seen on Site

Though we’ve been tracking exterior construction of TRON Lightcycle / Run for several months, the project was significantly delayed due to COVID-19. In December, most of the show building’s openings were sealed off as interior construction stagnated. It seems interior construction has resumed, however.

We saw this illuminating arrow prop being moved around the construction site today.

The piece was brought out the ground-level door that leads to the inside of the attraction. It’s unclear what Disney is doing with them at this point, perhaps some maintenance since the site sat dormant for so long. Only time will tell, but it’s the first interior work we have seen in a long time.

We recognize the piece from Shanghai Disneyland’s TRON Lightcycle Power Run. It’s even visible in the thumbnail for our ride-through video, which you can watch below:

These light-up arrows are seen at the attraction’s launch and at various points inside “The Grid.”

Are you excited for TRON Lightcycle / Run to eventually open at Magic Kingdom? Let us know in the comments.

Not too excited – the track looks flat, the theming looks minimal based on videos of Shanghai Disney. This is a sad shell of a ride compared to classic “mountain rides” at Disney Parks.

Tron is a great ride, and I’m basing this on actual real life experience rather than judging coasters from a video on Youtube.

The lighting effects, the audio and the riding position are all really slick and it’s honestly such a visual spectacle. Some of the effects on ride (such as the light cycle crashing) and in the queue (the vanishing wall) are just amazing. Honestly for me it’s 10x better than the classic Space Mountain which I think is given a free pass by a lot of people just for being a ‘classic’
