It’s time for another construction update on the TRON Lightcycle Run coaster at the Magic Kingdom. Exterior walls are starting to go up around the main ride building, concealing the interior portion of the coaster.
We have a great view of the current progress courtesy of @WDWTraveler. Their photo also provides a nice look at the sweeping exterior portion of the coaster track that will later be covered by an enormous canopy.
The ability to see the installation of the show elements within the main ride building is coming to an end. It was fun to watch it while it lasted! Previously, we could see some of the sets guests will pass through during their high-speed journey in the Grid. These elements will be lit up and will give off the illusion that guests are racing against another lightcycle.
Want to keep an eye on the latest developments of the TRON Lightcycle Run coaster? Take a ride on the PeopleMover (not that we should need to convince you) and you’ll get a great view of the construction site.
The TRON Lightcycle Run coaster is expected to open in 2021.
