UPDATE May 12 - TRON Lightcycle / Run is certainly a hot topic at the moment and we have just heard that Disney has released a video showing the first full-speed launch. The video is embedded below and certainly shows this highly anticipated attraction is making good progress.

As you can see from the video we are only seeing the launch and the outside section of the rollercoaster. Majority of the action takes place in the show building. We still don't have a confirmed opening date for TRON Lightcycle / Run but we are hoping it will be open at some point in 2022. We will keep you posted on our news and Facebook page as soon as an opening date is announced.

March 9 - We are all eagerly awaiting news of when the highly anticipated TRON Lightcycle / Run  will open at Disney's Magic Kingdom. Originally slated to open in 2021, Disney fans are certainly having to wait patiently for news.

This week we have been treated to a video which has been uploaded to Instagram from Assistant Construction Manager, Angela Wu, showing us how things currently look inside the TRON Lightcycle / Run building at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

From the video you can see the sheer scale of the building which houses the highly anticipated TRON Lightcycle / Run coaster, where you will board your Lightcycle and head off into the grid on a thrilling roller coaster ride. 

Wu talks about the current progress of installing the canopy ETFE which is explained as being "a plastic polymer that gets blown up with air". It has a "unique graphic pattern which you will be able to see when you experience the attraction at night".

It certainly looks impressive even in its current state so we are sure it will blow guests away when it is finally complete. However, from the video, an opening date appears to be quite a long way off as it looks like a lot of work still needs to be done. The video is embedded below:

When TRON Lightcycle / Run opens at Disney's Magic Kingdom, it will be a duplicate of the extremely popular Shanghai Disneyland’s Tron Lightcycle Power Run. The ride will allow guests to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles and go on a high-speed adventure through Tron’s high-tech universe.
