PHOTOS: More Materials Being Moved at Tron Lightcycle Run Construction Site at Magic Kingdom

While we wait for the rest of the canopy to finally be installed at TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom, we did get a look at some materials being moved at the construction site today.

This section of wall was picked up and carried across the site while we watched from the queue of The Barnstormer.

Crew members were walking alongside the construction vehicle as the wall piece was moved.

It was taken close to the show building’s construction entrance but is likely not for interior use.

Meanwhile, we took a look at the two-story structure that was recently constructed, but there didn’t seem to be any updates to it.

We did see crew members underneath the structure today.

This shorter structure is now completely encased in concrete except for the top.

Ladders led up into this small wooden structure.

Most of the crew has been hard at work installing new metal beams that will support the actual canopy.

We saw some crew working on the edge of the canopy framework. Lights have also been installed on the framework.

The blue safety netting is temporary while crew members frequently work above the canopy.

Guests can see much of the construction site from the PeopleMover.

The curved concrete walls will eventually form a tunnel for the Walt Disney World Railroad.

We can see more rebar walls waiting for their concrete encasement.

Right now, the platform guests will walk on is surrounded with temporary fencing, but permanent railing will be installed before opening.

Scaffolding has been visible inside the attraction for some time now.

  1. The curved concrete walls are the supports for the exit ramp (which will probably be filled with dirt), not the tunnel for the railroad. That ramp goes up and eventually over the railroad tracks. The 19th picture of the update shows the path through the structure, that the railroad will follow….where the porta-potties and yellow excavator are positioned.

  2. I can’t hardly wait to see the finished construction of Tron: Lightcycle run and to see the signage of the Tron: Lightcycle run! Awesome job!
