At D23 Expo Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts made the big announcement that a new TRON attraction which will be placed in an entirely new area right next to the Space Mountain attraction at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World.
A similar ride opened in the Tomorrowland section of Shanghai Disney Resort in 2016. The TRON Lightcycle Power Run attraction at Shanghai Disneyland is a coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles. It offers access to the energy, lights, and excitement of TRON’s modern universe.
The land will feature a huge, color-shifting canopy near the TRON Lightcycle Power Run, similar to the one in Shanghai.
The plan is to open the TRON attraction in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021.
