Here is a latest look at the TRON rollercoaster currently under construction in the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland.

With much of the indoor track section now in place, work is underway on adding the exterior support walls for the ride's show building.

The TRON attraction is set to open at Magic Kingdom Park in time for Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary in 2021.

A nod is as good as a wink to a blind bat.

I wasn't sure if you were joking. Such is the nature of writing, vs speaking in person. We lose so much nuance.

true. Guess I'm going to have to work on my jokes. That one didn't connect AT ALL... Doing brakes currently on one of my antique cars. You wouldn't believe the amount of rust that caused me to replace parts on!

That's only surface rust, it happens to rail tracks, the disc brakes on cars... It'll scrape right off as soon as the train is run.

That is the coaster building.

Wow. The rust on the rails looks pretty bad. Not sure they'll last as long as the RR ties!

Is the black rounded-corner grid box behind the canopies here also what we can expect from the new structure? I had originally thought it represented the coaster box, but now I’m not sure.
