We are all anxiously awaiting the opening of Tron at Magic Kingdom. Today we got a video update on the attraction’s progress!

Tron Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster was first introduced to guests at Shanghai Disneyland Resorts. In this thrilling attraction, riders hop aboard motorcycle style ride vehicles as they speed through the dark ride. It is all the more thrilling because it is one of the fastest indoor coasters in the history of Disney’s parks.

The attraction is based on Disney’s 1982 film TRON. The movie has the distinction of being the first film to combine live-action sequences with computer-generated and animated elements.

Originally announced in 2017, we were all hoping to ride TRON before the 50th anniversary of Disney World. Unfortunately, it likely won’t open until later into 2022 or even 2023. Disney has remained relatively quiet on the progress.

However, Disney shared an update and it gives us an up close look at the progress!

The video introduces us to Angela Wu with Walt Disney Imagineering. We can see the outdoor canopy from ground level which is something we haven’t really been able to see yet. Really, the most we can see from the park is while on PeopleMover, the Tomorrowland Speedway, or in line for Barnstormer.

Currently, Imagineering is working on the installation of the canopy ETFE. It’s a plastic polymer that gets blown up with air.

There is also a unique graphic pattern that Guests will be able to see when they ride the attraction at night. We are so excited for the opening of Tron! You can see the video update from Disney below:
