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’s even more exciting 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 is the first film to combine live-action sequences with computer-generated and animated elements. Each day seems to point to another sign of the attraction opening. See the latest progress for Disney’s TRON Lightcycle Run HERE.

Rumors are swirling that TRON will open the first week of April 2023. It would certainly explain why discounted military tickets have blackout dates in April for the first time in a long time (or ever).

The progress of TRON is finally wrapping up. Yesterday, the construction walls came down, and now the notorious “guard plants” serve as barriers to this attraction. As you approach the new Tron attraction, you’ll see the roller coaster whirling around the track and hear music playing.

Recently we had our first glimpse inside the queue for this attraction. You can also get a first-ever sneak peek aboard this attraction HERE.

Do you know if there is something to rest your head on like Rockin Rollercoaster? Is the ride smoothe like that too ir is it like Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain that is very jerky? I had surgery this year and 14 screws put in my neck. Rockin Rollercoaster would be okay for me to ride but not the Mountains. I’ve been waiting to go back to DW and going this August, to ride Tron and Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanks.
