PHOTOS: Work Continues on Canopy Framework of TRON Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom

It may be a year before guests will be able to enter The Grid on TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom, but we are still getting peeks at the construction of the new coaster in Tomorrowland.

A crane towers over the entrance to the coaster for installing pieces of the entrance canopy.

We could see crew members working on the entrance canopy, which now has several increasingly taller archway pieces.

The archway pieces reach almost to the end of the walkway directly in front of the main entrance.

The last few pieces are less arched and stick almost straight up into the air.

From Storybook Circus, we could see more crew members working on the canopy framework, which is still being prepared for the actual canopy.

  1. I can’t wait for to ride on Tron: Lightcycle run it will be in my thrill list and I love shopping at Tron lightcycle run!

  2. I have no doubt Chapek is likely cutting costs on this project, causing it to be delayed. Didn’t it take less time to build the original in China under Iger? No disrespect to those building the ride, I think it has everything to do with Darth Chapek, the destroyer of magic and dreams. LOL.

    1. Or, you know, the pandemic that caused them to postpone several things because they were losing millions through the parks being closed might have a big impact on how much they spend on the ride right now.
