Despite construction being temporarily paused due to the ongoing pandemic, it seems as though Disney Imagineers are working hard to finish the project as Disney fans cannot wait to experience Disney’s newest coaster — TRON Lightcycle / Run — when it officially opens. We do want to make mention that when discussing priority projects for 2021, TRON Power / Run was not mentioned, though the HarmonioUS nighttime spectacular and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure were mentioned, both of which are set to open at EPCOT.

At this time, we do not have an opening date for TRON Lightcycle / Run, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.

Disney Parks Blog describes the upcoming coaster attraction as:

TRON Lightcycle / Run is a coaster-style attraction that will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier. A similar attraction exists at Shanghai Disneyland, where it opened in 2016, and became an instant guest-favorite.

If you cannot wait to ride the upcoming TRON coaster, be sure to check out our video of the TRON attraction in Shanghai Disneyland! The Disney World attraction may not be identical, it is going to be very similar to the Shanghai TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster.
