Today, we have a look at an aerial view of the upcoming Tron Lightcycle Run attraction being built at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the construction of the Tron coaster due to the temporary closure of the Disney theme parks. Even though we don’t have a confirmed release date yet, the good news is that there’s physical evidence that construction is making progress. We’re eager to see the Tron coaster ride when it’s complete!

The first Tron attraction debuted at Shanghai Disneyland when the park opened in 2016. The ride is a roller coaster adventure through a semi-enclosed structure in Tomorrowland. Disney is currently working on constructing the Tron attraction for Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The name of the attraction is “Tron Lightcycle Power Run” at Shanghai Disneyland. However, it’s been established that the attraction’s official name for Magic Kingdom is “Tron Lightcycle Run.”
The ride is inspired by the lightcycle vehicles shown in the Tron movies. It’s akin to a futuristic motorcycle thrill ride in a brightly lit video game environment. The ride has received fantastic reviews and critical acclaim at Shanghai Disneyland. The Magic Kingdom version is planned to debut in 2021 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Many Disney fans are eager to see the new Tron ride at Magic Kingdom when it opens up next year!
