PHOTOS: Height Requirement and Restroom Signs Added to TRON Lightcycle / Run

With the opening of TRON Lightcycle/Run at the Magic Kingdom rumored to be sometime in early April, we went to check out its progress. While riding the Walt Disney World Railroad today, we noticed a height requirement sign added.

This new sign, which has been recently added to the ride’s queue entrance, has the height requirement in order to ride the attraction. The sign is similar to many other height requirement signs found throughout the parks.

The silver and blueish-purple sign has a medallion on one side with a figure of a person standing erect, showing how guests should be properly measured. On the other opposite side is a curved marker with two arrows indicating the height minimum and 48″ in between those arrows.

A restrooms sign has also been added above the entrance as well.

Meanwhile, the Imagineers are still running the ride vehicles with test dummies. However, as of last month, they started testing the attraction with people as well.

On Christmas Day we even got a sneak peek at a nearly completed attraction when the hosts of Good Morning America rode the attraction as part of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade broadcast.

Workers continue to make progress on the ramps leading to and from the attraction. Planters are nearly completed and just waiting for landscaping.

When TRON Lightcycle / Run opens it will be one of the fastest coasters at any Disney theme park in the world.
