TRON Lightcycle Run construction - May 20 2021
Posted: Thursday May 20, 2021 9:48am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The canopy at TRON Lightcycle Run is edging closer to completion and the construction team has reached another milestone this week with the removal of the last piece of the temporary support structure.

Guests now have an unobstructed view of the canopy and coaster track.

Elsewhere a small crew is working on cleaning up the areas of the canopy that were connected to the temporary supports.


At ground level, we spotted an interior set piece being removed from the site presumably for some adjustments.

Then what was the point of your response to me?

And my counter to you is, huh? Am I to assume that, based on your "counter", you believe every attraction at IOA should be as intense as Velocicoaster? Hate to break it to you but if you've never been, you're going to be disappointed. Like I said in my original post, I'm in no way advocating for all indoors at either Universal park. You're the only person here trying to make that straw man to argue with for some weird reason.

I don't think there is a more significant item to have open on the 50th. It would have to be some major reason if it isn't.

I so want this to be open by October 1st. Won’t be a true 10/1 Anniversary without hearing the train whistle! At least I hope they stage the RR at the MS station and blow the whistle every so often πŸ˜‚.

IMO the best parks have a mixture of both.

my counter is that id like more intense rides to stay at Universal and more family friendly rides to come to Disney. of course this is just imo, some people like intense coaster rides but i prefer chill stuff like pirates and splash and indiana...well indiana isnt chill but its awesome

No under the canopy thru a covered track (sort of like a covered bridge).

My counter to that is putting attractions indoors makes it difficult to make them as intense as Velocicoaster.

cant wait for the canopy to start! every week it gets a little closer...its gonna look great when its all lit up, Im still wondering what the concrete pathwork will look like...

Not every attraction but for a world-class theme park built in a region known for seasonal thunder storms, it would make sense to diversify a bit with more indoor attractions to help cope with the reality of the location. The side effect of having more attractions with AC would just be a bonus. But Universal isn't the only one operating a theme park in FL that basically has to shut down when there is a lightning, rain, or high wind risk.

Legoland and Busch Gardens Tampa are like that, too. Busch Gardens in particular, might as well just call it a day since all of their attractions (save for two shows with scheduled times) are outdoors and shut down.
