TRON Lightcycle Run has forever changed the skyline of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park, with the capping of the curved canopy for the outside portion of the ride. Guest will experience speeds of 60 mph on the roller coaster track that will be both indoors and outdoors. The seats resemble Light Cycles from the TRON and TRON: Legacy movies.

Started in September of 2020 the “curved wave” canopy, known as the Upload Conduit is comprised of 40 pieces. Each section is strategically assembled before installation, including alignment of the steel, welding, grinding, some painting and electrical work.
