TRON: Lightcycle Power Run Construction Update – January 18th, 2019

Sean: We’re still more than two years away from the opening of one of the most anticipated attractions Magic Kingdom has ever seen. The TRON: Lightcycle Power Run will not only be a thrilling new addition to the park’s lineup, but also a much needed fresh and modern aesthetic that the park can certainly use. Let’s take a look at the current status of construction.


– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –


Behind the teaser billboard next to Barnstormer, construction is starting to shape up for the massive Vekoma coaster. The ride’s show building will be massive, yet hidden behind a spectacular canopy. A foundation for the ride’s show building/infrastructure is rising above the previous swamp, as seen below.

Construction hasn’t quite gone “vertical”, yet some basic metal structures are rising on the lot. 

Land for the new coaster has been leveled for a minute now, but lots of materials have arrived on site that will be crucial to the plumbing and electrical aspects of adding the E-ticket attraction. Such materials can be seen all along over the grounds.

More clearing and removal of landscaping is taking place where the entrance to the ride will be located (roughly).

This may be challenging to see, as pictures were taken from a moving People Mover vehicle, but a sea of metal poles is rising in the construction zone, presumably part of the foundations of the ride’s show buildings.

The Walt Disney World Railroad and the Tomorrowland Speedway are closed while TRON: Lightcycle Power Run is under construction, this is because the railroad will be passing under the TRON canopy. The Tomorrowland Speedway is getting retrofitted to allow for the expansion.

Though most (if not all) of the speedway vehicles are still on the tracks, the majority of the backside of the attraction has been demolished and is receiving a redesign/overhaul.

If you look to the left of the image, you’ll catch a glimpse of all the vehicles still on the tracks. Many of which will see an extensive refurbishment as well.

We’re excited to soon have a brand new attraction joining the Magic Kingdom line-up.
