Tron Lightcycle Run Disney World Train Tunnel takes shape in the Magic Kingdom. Does anyone else feel like this is taking forever? I mean the outside construction at Tron Coaster? It feels like is has dragged on for some time now. Yet, there is hope. Things are looking up, minus the giant hole that has been dug, that is looking down. (Sorry, that was a bad joke)

The Walt Disney World Railroad has been closed for over 3 years now. We have patiently waited for the Steam Engine to roll down the tracks again. Our patients are paying off, we are seeing some major advancements over at Tron Lightcycle PowerRun. The tunnel is almost complete. I mean besides the giant hole they just dug at the entrance to the tunnel. By giant, I mean deep. I can’t even speculate on what they are doing.

You can see in the images, the left wall will be extended with concrete forms once the hole is completed, it looks like the right side is capped off. Furthermore, we have seen more new tracks laid over at Tomorrowland Light and Power Co. Also, we got to see the canopy lit up for the first time.

From Film to Attraction

Groundbreaking computer animation and brilliant visual effects created a legacy that delights fans to this day.

In 1982, Disney made filmmaking history with TRON, the first production of its kind to mix live-action with computer-generated visuals and backlit animation. Loved by legions around the world, it went on to inspire video games, comic books, an animated series, and the 2010 big-screen sequel, TRON: Legacy.

Today, Shanghai Disneyland honors the franchise with one of the coolest and fastest indoor roller coasters in any Disney theme park—TRON Lightcycle Power Run.
