TRON Lightcycle / Run gets Opening Date at Magic Kingdom
The Walt Disney Company has revealed that its newest roller coaster, TRON Lightcycle / Run, will debut at Magic Kingdom on April 4, 2023.
The official opening date was revealed after the company shared a series of teasers.
The TRON coaster is inspired by the TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland, which puts riders behind two-wheeled Lightcycles that race the digital world from the TRON film series.
The story of TRON Lightcycle / Run picks up after ‘TRON: Legacy’ where Kevin’s son, Sam Flynn, has opened a second gateway into a digital realm called the Grid. The first of these portals he created is found at Shanghai Disneyland with the original TRON Lightcycle Power Run. When you enter the queue at Magic Kingdom, you’ll feel as if you’re digitized and transported to the Grid for a special Lightcycle race. Riders, as Team Blue, will race against the Grid’s sinister Programs, which will be represented as Team Orange.
The coaster is one of many new attractions in the works for Walt Disney World. Finally, Disney has confirmed that there will be preview opportunities for cast members as well as guests, including annual passholders and eligible DVC members.
