TRON Lightcycle / Run, based on the 1982 movie TRON and the 2010 sequel TRON Legacy, invites riders to ‘enter the grid’ and experience a thrilling ride on a Lightcycle for themselves. The Magic Kingdom attraction adopts many of the themes from the storylines of the films, allowing riders to immerse themselves in the TRON Universe.


The story of TRON Lightcycle / Run picks up where the storyline in TRON: Legacy leaves off. The backstory for the ride notes Sam Flynn has opened a second gateway into TRON at Magic Kingdom, with the first portal located at the TRON Lightcycle / Run attraction in Shanghai Disneyland. Riders enter the grid and are assigned to Team Blue, racing on Lightcycles against either team Red, Yellow, or Orange in an attempt to be the first to pass through eight gates.

The attraction includes a myriad of callbacks to the movies, including the ENCOM SHV 20905 laser that digitizes riders and allows them to enter the grid, the circular identity disc that allows riders to pair with the Lightcycles, and the hexagon appearance within the grid that is consistent with the grid theming in both TRON movies. In true Disney fashion, riders will find themselves in the world of TRON from the beginning of the queue all the way through the end of the attraction.

Here are a few additional fast facts about TRON Lightcycle / Run:

  • The attraction is the fastest in a Disney theme park (along with the original TRON Lightcycle / Run at Shanghai Disneyland), reaching speeds of just under 60 mph.
  • The ride track is over 3,000 feet long
  • The massive (and beautiful) canopy is 105 feet high and features over 1,200 lights
  • The footprint of the ride encompasses a total of 10 acres, marking the largest expansion of Magic Kingdom since the construction of New Fantasyland
  • The Lightcycles include onboard audio and lighting
  • Complimentary lockers are provided in the queue to store your belongings, as no items may be brought on the attraction
