Zooming into the Magic Kingdom is TRON Lightcycle Run!
The ride, based on the TRON films, will be very similar to its counterpart in Shanghai Disneyland.
Disney shares that this attraction will allow riders to “experience the energy, lights and excitement of TRON’s high-tech universe” in this “thrilling race through the digital frontier.”
Get ready to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles which will reach speeds up to 59 miles per hour! (Although this is faster than Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster, it doesn’t quite out-speed Test Track’s 65-mile per hour limit.)
Lighting will play a huge role, as the indoor roller coaster will feature shifting light panels, so the ride experience will change from day to night depending on the light!
Look for this attraction in Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland.
TRON Lightcycle Run Construction
We have been keeping a close eye on the construction for TRON Lightcycle Run.
In the fall of 2021, we spotted a new addition close to the coaster’s entrance to the building. If you look very closely, you can spot a ride test vehicle of some sort on the tracks (just left of center in the photo)!
And in November 2021, we got an overhead look at the construction at the Destination D23 event.
The progress continues!
We hope you’ll join us on this page and on the blog as we share more updates!
TRON Lightcycle Run Photo Op
Can’t wait to board a Lightcycle?
Well, you can right now… kind of!
Though we’ll still have to wait until 2021 to ride, guests visiting Tomorrowland can hop on a Lightcycle for a unique photo op!
TRON Lightcycle Run Timeframe
TRON Lightcyle Run was originally slated to open in time for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort: October 1, 2021. However, because Walt Disney World was closed for several months in 2020 due to the global health crisis, the project has met with delays and a new opening timeframe has not yet been announced. We will continue to update this page with the most current information as it becomes available.
