Progress on Disney’s “TRON Attraction” in Magic Kingdom – Will Ride Get a Name Change?

Tron Lightcycle Power Run Roller COaster headed to Walt Disney World and Disneyland?

Progress is being made on the highly-anticipated TRON coaster in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The Disney Parks Blog has posted a new video talking about the first steel support columns being installed and more.

While it’s been assumed in the past that the attraction was an exact clone of the Shanghai Disneyland TRON Lightcycle Power Run coaster, the Parks Blog says the “TRON attraction” is merely based on that coaster.

Hmm. Could the Magic Kingdom version of the ride be getting a different name? Will there be some differences between the U.S. and Shanghai version of the TRON coaster? Only time will tell!

Here’s more from the Disney Parks Blog…

The steel columns will serve as the framework that’ll support the coaster’s track in Tomorrowland.  And today, we have a special look at the columns and the progress Walt Disney Imagineers, Disney cast members and project teams have made in bringing the attraction to life.

The TRON attraction is based on the guest-favorite attraction TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland.  This coaster-style attraction will allow riders to board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for a thrilling race through the digital frontier.

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