Disney World fans cannot wait for the day they can take off on TRON Lightcycle / Run. As Disney Imagineers continue to work on the upcoming Tomorrowland roller coaster attraction, we have another construction update for you!

Not long ago, we reported that the blue netting was being installed at the canopy of TRON Lightcycle / Run. Now, thanks to bioreconstruct on Twitter, we have additional photos showing more of the blue netting added as well as closer views of the show building and roller coaster attraction.

First, bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) shared a photo to Twitter of TRON in the background of this Magic Kingdom view. As you can see, the construction is really starting to come along as the ride already fits right into the landscape:

Bioreconstruct also shared a wider photo of the same Magic Kingdom skyline:

While inside the theme park, we can see the canopy is really starting to come along:

Additional blue netting has been added to the TRON canopy, which you can see in the Tweet below. The installation of the blue netting will not be how it will look once it is complete:

Blue netting so far where Tron track enters at top of the show or gravity building. A white canopy will be placed and secured, using this netting for temporary support.

This next photo shows where the TRON track enters the show building:

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 Magic Kingdom coaster 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 version of this attraction may not be identical to Shanghai’s version, but it is going to be very similar.
