TRON Lightcycle Run construction - June 30 2021
Posted: Wednesday June 30, 2021 9:49am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The construction team at the Magic Kingdom's TRON Lightcyle Run has reached another milestone this week beginning the removal of the main tower crane from the construction site.

The tower crane has been on site for a significant period of time and has supported the installation of much of the structural steel throughout the site.

Crews have the rather delicate job of standing atop the crane as they dismantle it and lower the pieces down to the ground via a secondary mobile crane.

Elsewhere, more of the blue safety netting is being installed.

At the opening to the building, work is continuing on removing the temporary facade that sealed up that area and placing the finished pieces around the track area.

That would at least give the ride a scene and extra length.

Close. It's the building the ride stops in and you'll be asked if you want to renew your extended warranty on your light cycle.

Definitely wouldn't make it at that grade.

the newest pics show the smaller side building is def gonna be pretty big inside. In shanghai its a corporate sponsored lounge area, its probably gonna be the same but golly if they made a flynns arcade thatd be so much cooler

How long does it take you just to carefully read 1,000 pages much less ones that are 3’ x 4’ in size?

... and with D23 right around the corner, I can't wait to hear what we have to look forward to and seeing the concept art for what they plan to some day design and maybe even build in the next 5-10 years if it doesn't get quietly scrapped or budget cut too much between now and my son going off to college. 👍

I’m not trying to put him on blast… but it wasn’t a “blank slate”. I just don’t need Low level WDI grade excuses these places tend to disperse. it’s not easy…but it’s replicating a mountain…not building one

Knew this response was inevitable, and I am sure @lazyboy97o will respond.
