Is TRON Dirty? Fans Say YES!

More than a few months after its highly anticipated opening, Disney’s new TRON roller coaster seems to have lost some of its initial luster. Recent photos circulating on social media depict certain areas of the ride covered in unsightly dirt and grime. This surprising development comes as a shock to many visitors and fans alike, as Disney Parks are renowned for their exceptional cleanliness and attention to detail.

TRON Lightcycle/ Run, inspired by the futuristic world depicted in the popular TRON film franchise, was expected to be a shining gem in Disney’s collection of thrilling attractions. With its sleek design and innovative technology, it promised an exhilarating experience like no other. However, these new images hint at potential neglect in maintenance, tarnishing its previously pristine reputation.

These questions are undoubtedly on the minds of concerned Disney enthusiasts who have come to expect nothing but the best from the company. For now, fans will have to wait and see if Disney or Walt Disney Imagineering fixes this roller coaster’s issues.
