If you’ve been keeping up with the new updates and attractions coming to Walt Disney World, then it won’t be a surprise when we share that construction has continued on the all-new TRON coaster coming to Magic Kingdom. Here’s what you need to know.
For those of you who have been itching to ride TRON Lightcycle Power Run ever since it opened at Shanghai Disneyland a few years back, you’re in luck. That ride has been the most sought-after attraction for Disney fans overseas, and after Disney announced that a similar attraction would be coming to Magic Kingdom, we could hardly wait to know more. As Disney puts it, the coaster-style attraction will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier. The TRON attraction will be coming to Magic Kingdom in time for the park’s 50th anniversary in 2021. Take a look at Disney’s original announcement of the new TRON attraction at D23 Expo in 2017:
Lucky for us, Disney just shared that construction is continuing to progress. Disney announced this week that the first steel support columns for the new TRON attraction have been installed in Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom. We know that for most of us, support columns may not seem that exciting. But this means that the framework that will support the new TRON attraction has been set in place, and we keep getting closer to the date when we get to experience the ride for ourselves.
If you’re worried about what the new TRON attraction means for Tomorrowland, here’s what’s going on. The TRON attraction is being constructed in an area that was previously unused on what you could call the outskirts of Tomorrowland. During construction, the Walt Disney World Railroad and Tomorrowland Speedway have been closed temporarily, but that doesn’t mean that those two attractions are going anywhere. The new TRON attraction isn’t taking the place of previous attractions; it will instead breathe new life into Tomorrowland and give the area the much-needed update it deserves.
