The TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster will be quite massive and be covered by a colorful, light changing canopy. As of today, we’ve learned that the first canopy piece was installed! Thanks to the Walt Disney World Instagram Page, we learned that Disney Imagineers have begun constructing a 40-piece canopy that will surround the attraction. This canopy is known as the Upload Conduit, and it is one of the most exciting updates we have seen since the lightcycle bikes were put on display for photo opportunities before testing. Disney’s latest update continues to build the anticipation for this attraction, riding on the momentum built from track updates and scores of pictures! And we at Inside the Magic can’t wait for this coaster!
