Are you excited about the new Tron attraction coming to Magic Kingdom? Take a look here to see Disney’s latest information released.
Lighting up the Sky
Imagineers are hard at work creating TRON Lightcycle Run. It’s beginning to light up the skyline in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom Park. Recently, we shared nighttime testing taking place HERE.
Disney is in the testing phase for what will be one of the fastest coasters in any Disney park. When this attraction is complete, you’ll climb aboard your very own Lightcycle and launch into the Grid for a race through a dark, computerized world.
A large, white canopy that covers the outdoor portion of this attraction is now fully constructed. You can see photos of this canopy construction and also work on the new train tunnel HERE. When completed, the canopy will be completely illuminated with brilliant lights as guests zoom along on the illuminated ride vehicles.
The story picks up following the events of “TRON: Legacy,” whose main character, Sam Flynn, is now opening new gateways into this digital realm at specific locations around the world. The first portal he created is at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run. Now Magic Kingdom guests will get their turn through this second gateway.
At Disney’s Magic Kingdom, guests go through a second gateway!
Get Ready, Set, Go!
When you enter the attraction’s queue, you’ll feel as if you’re digitized and entering the Grid for a special Lightcycle race alongside your family and friends. You’ll all join Team Blue for a high-speed launch into a competition against Team Orange. As you swoop and swerve your way around the course, your goal is to be the first to race through eight Energy Gates and secure your victory. Check out the newest photo released by Disney above.
