PHOTOS - Track installation begins at the Magic Kingdom's Tron coaster

Tron construction site - May 2019

Steel supports for the Tron coaster track are now visible throughout Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom as work on installing the ride system gets underway.

Based on the The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland, riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles.

The nearby Tomorrowland Speedway will reopen very soon following a few modifications of its track layout to accommodate Tron.

Tron will open in time for Walt Disney World's 50th in 2021.

I would assume they need to install show elements inside the show building and figure out the spacing before they start test runs. Once the canopy is complete, push and pull should be able to start, but actual test runs of the attraction won’t come until much later. Besides, if the rumors about the delays are correct, I doubt they’ll even have any people on site at all for a while.

Wow...that’s the most “vekoma lookin” vekoma track I’ve ever seen!

So is it still true that they will just complete the canopy and halt construction in the meantime? I would assume after the canopy, test runs will ensue.

That’s my hope with this GOTG box - that more think tree planting are added to the left of this pic where the tree density thins out. Won’t solve it all. But will help.

You did it! You found the 1 place that this will look good and compliment the land, now everyone just needs to ride the speedway from now to eternity... ;)

That you'd see backstage from outside transpo? Has been a fact since probably day one of WDW.

A ride was poorly placed in part because of the Skyliner...

Play it all you like. It was an acknowledged flaw with the Skyliner route.

I'll play my 'outside the park' card. :D

Well, believe it or not, but if you squint your eyes ever so slightly while moving your head from left to right and pretend youre seeing the sky, you still see the box.
