TRON Lightcycle / Run was originally scheduled to open in time for Magic Kingdom’s 50th anniversary on October 1, but was significantly delayed due to COVID-19.

Most of the canopy framework is now covered in blue netting that crew members can actually stand on when installing lights and, eventually, the canopy itself.

The show building was recently reopened at the spot where the coaster enters “The Grid.”

Tarp hangs around the entrance, and we can see scaffolding inside.

The coaster will launch from below, loop through the canopy, then rocket back into the building.

The show building has been covered in grey paneling for a while, but this section near the bottom of the building has yet to be completed.

I am not sure the blue is temporary, check out the Wikipedia page for the Shanghai coaster, the blue netting is visible.
