We’ve spotted lots of new activity at the future site of the TRON Lightcycle Power Run in Tomorrowland. The indoor coaster is slated to open in 2021, just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.
With the temporary closure of the Tomorrowland Speedway and the Walt Disney World Railroad, temporary barriers have been put up to block views of the site from parkgoers. The walkway behind Space Mountain that cuts behind the Speedway has also been closed. The smoking area that was located along the path had been temporarily relocated to the side of Space Mountain.
Riders on the People Mover can get a glimpse of the open areas of the construction site. Machines are busy clearing the area, and drainage and foundation structures are being installed. There are also a number of temporary buildings popping up. Check out the video below for a birds-eye view of a dormant Tomorrowland Speedway, and the construction site.
As construction progresses, the Tomorrowland Speedway is expected to re-open this summer. No word from Disney as to when the Railroad will re-open. However, guests wanting an up-close look can see the train currently parked at the Main Street Station.
Stay tuned for more updates as the construction progresses. TRON will be a huge headlining attraction when it opens to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. The rollercoasters first incarnation opened in Shanghai Disneyland in June of 2016. The indoor coaster takes riders inside and outside the building, reaching speeds of almost 60 miles per hour. This makes it Disney’s fastest roller coaster!
